Hi parents, welcome to Lake Elkhorn Little Children's Place, my home-based daycare and preschool in Columbia, MD. I’m the owner and main caregiver of this small family child care program. I’m a licensed provider and I have 17 years of experience with CPR and First-aid certifications. I’m a mother of 5 myself and I hold an Associates Degree in Psychology. In addition to my child care experience, I’m also a MAT trained, so I can administer medication to all children attending my program.
My home daycare offers full-time and part time care from 6:30 am to 5:30 am, Monday through Friday. I accept infants as young as 6 weeks, as well as toddlers and preschoolers up to 5 years old. Before and after school care are both available for school-age kids up to 12 years old (my facility is close to Cradlerock Elementary School, Steven Forest Elementary School, Jeffers Hill Elementary School and Guilford Elementary School). All children in my care are served with snacks, already included in the tuition.
In addition to English, I speak Urdu and Gujrati and upon your request, I can expose your little one to these foreign languages (however, my program is not a bilingual daycare). I always strive to make learning as much fun and engaging as possible, which is why I follow the Play-based teaching philosophy. I have fun extracurricular activities for my student such as Story Time, Music, Arts & Crafts, etc.
Lake Elkhorn Little Children's Place is located near Lake Elkhorn, in the Owen Brown neighborhood of Columbia, MD. I’m right off Cradlerock Way and Broken Land Pkwy. Your daily commute to work will be convenient since I have easy access to these major roads: Patuxent Fwy (route 32), Columbia Pike (US-29) and the I-95. Please contact us to schedule a visit, I would love to meet your family :)
