CURRENT OPENINGS: For children 2 and up only! Next infant opening is anticipated in March 2021!
Hi parents, welcome to Darnestown Kids Playhouse, my home daycare in Gaithersburg, MD. I’m the owner and main caregiver and I’m a mother of 3 children with 14 years of child care experience (including 7 years working in a child care center, and 7 years running my own family child care program). I am CPR and first-aid certified and also have my MAT certification (so when necessary, I can administer medication to your little one.) My daycare hours are from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday. I provide full-time and part-time daycare for infants as young as 6 weeks old, and for toddlers and preschoolers up to 6 years old. If you need occasional care only, I can accommodate drop-in child care, on a case by case basis. I offer safe and affordable child care, and a play-based early learning program. We have circle time daily, and also enjoy dance, music, and arts & crafts. In addition to English, I also speak Urdu and Hindi and can expose your child to a foreign language if you’d like. Darnestown Kids Playhouse is located off Darnestown Rd in Gaithersburg, between Muddy Branch Rd and Great Seneca Hwy. Please send an email to learn more and schedule a time to meet!

Our 3-year-old son has been with this provider for about a year now and we couldn't be happier. This provider is great with him and he has so much fun. My son has a lot of energy and the big backyard is perfect for him to run around and play.

We love this daycare! Our 22 month old looks forward to going to "school" every day, and comes home telling us all about it. Since attending, he's become more communicative, confident, and independent. This provider is caring and patient with all the children and communicates well with parents.

Our son has been so happy since Day 1 with this provider. He started going when he was only 4 months old, which all new mothers know is a difficult time to leave your baby at daycare, but it has been great. I know he is safe and well taken care of. I never worry about my son when we drop him off and he even throws a fit now when we pick him up because he loves his caregivers so much!

My daughter loves going to This child care center. I believe she gets the best one-on-one treatment and care from the teachers. It says a lot when you drop a toddler off and they are excited to be there.

I started sending my son to this daycare when he was 10 months old. It's almost 2 yrs now. As a new parent I was looking for a daycare facility that can provide healthy environment for my kid to grow with. And, I found the right one. I feel that this daycare is a perfect place to send the kids especially when they are little because they get nurtured well. The family is very sweet, loving and caring and my son loves going there. Its like home... more

This daycare was perfect for my son. He started there right before he turned 5 months old. Since he is our first child, he gets a lot of love and attention at home, so it was important for me to find a place where he would get the same treatment. He was visibly happy with the provider and the other children. She is very responsive to texts and sends pictures. I really felt like I trusted my childcare in her care. She really knew him, she got his... more

The team is great! My son (infant) loves to go this daycare. I have no worries about when I drop him off which helps going back to work easier. She's very caring, loving, and diligent with lots of kids underfoot. I commend her for how she manages her daycare. If there happens to be a vacancy in her daycare, I would recommend snatching that spot quickly.
