Welcome to Lake Elkhorn Kids Playhouse, my family home daycare in Columbia, MD! I am the owner and main caregiver and I have 6 years of child care experience. I am CPR and first-aid certified and MAT trained, so I can administer medication to the children in my care if needed. I hold an Associate’s Degree and also completed all required certifications to be a licensed child care provider and early childhood educator.
I am a mother of 5, so I have a ton of first-hand experience with my own kids! Given a chance to care for your children, I can guarantee you that they will be in safe hands at all times! One of my top priorities is your little one’s health, so I will make sure that they practice the following habits: washing hands before and after meals, after using the bathroom and of course, after playing. I also clean and sanitize all toys in my facility to make sure that kids are free from bacteria and germs.
My family child care program is open 7 days a week from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm. I can provide full-time and part-time daycare for infants as young as 6 weeks, as well as toddlers through preschoolers up to 5 years old (please note that regular tuition covers Monday through Friday; please call or email to ask about tuition for weekend care).
I also offer before and after school care for school-age children up to 12 years old (my home is close to Cradlerock Elementary School, Stevens Forest Elementary School, Talbott Springs Elementary School). My facility offers a peanut and tree-nut free environment and I serve snacks to all kids in my care (included in the tuition).
My curriculum offers a lot of creative and learning activities such as meet & greet and circle time. I will engage your little one in different educational activities such as arts, music, drawing, painting, blocks and many more. As part of our daily routine, I will read storybooks to the children. They will also have plenty of outdoor playtime since I have a fenced backyard perfect for riding bikes and my home is close to the community park.
Lake Elkhorn Kids Playhouse is located off Broken Land Pkwy and Cradlerock Way (near Lake Elkhorn Park access). Your commute to work will be convenient since my daycare has easy access to all major roads: I am just a few minutes away from Columbia Pike (route 29), Patuxent Fwy (route 32) and the I-95.
Thanks for taking the time to read my profile, please send an email to schedule a tour. I will look forward to meeting your family!
