Thank you for your interest in Monarch Mills Children's Place, my home-like daycare and preschool in Columbia, MD. I’m the owner and main caregiver and I have 20 years of experience in child care and early childhood education. I’m CPR and First-aid certified.
As a mother of 3 myself, I understand how difficult it is to find a second home for your little one where he or she can grow, feel safe and loved. At my daycare, all children are treated as family, we laugh together, we learn together and we’re all in it together.
I follow the Play-based learning principles so children are taught through play and educational activities such as Story Time, Singing, Dance, Arts & Crafts and Field Trips. In addition to English, I speak Urdu, Hindi and Punjabi and upon your request, I can expose your child to these foreign languages (however, please note that my daycare is not a bilingual program).
My daycare program and preschool is open year-round from 7:00 am to 6:00, Monday through Friday. I offer various options to accommodate your child care needs such as full-time and part-time care for infants, toddlers and preschoolers between the ages of 4 weeks and 5 years old, including children with special needs. My facility is a peanut and tree-nut free environment and I serve morning and afternoon snacks to all attending kids (already included in the tuition).
Before and after school care are both available for older kids, up to 12 years old (I’m close to Guilford Elementary School, Atholton Elementary School, Cradlerock Elementary School, and Bollman Bridge Elementary School). Drop-in care is also available if you're just looking for occasional child care needs.
Monarch Mills Children's Place is located in the Monarch Mills apartment complex in the Guilford area of Columbia, MD. My home is right off Oakland Mills Rd and Snowden River Pkwy, near the following major roads: Patuxent Fwy (route 32), Columbia Pike (US-29) and the I-95. Please contact us to book a tour, I look forward to meeting you and your little one!
