OPENINGS: We are full at this time.
Thanks for your interest in Mountain View Estates Playhouse, our home-based daycare and preschool in North Potomac, MD (bordering Gaithersburg, MD). Our child care facility is located in the Mountain View Estates neighborhood of Darnestown Rd (route 28) near Jones Lane Elementary School.
About Me
I’m the owner and main caregiver of this family child care program, and I’m a mother of 2 kids so I have first-hand experience with my own children. My 2 daughters are now all grown up, and I love being with children so I decided to open up my own home daycare. I hold an Associate's Degree in Law and Political Science and CPR & First-aid certifications. If needed, I can administer medication to all children in my care since I’m MAT trained. My goal is to offer nurturing child care and quality early childhood education in a safe and loving learning environment :)
Program
Mountain View Estates Playhouse is open from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. We provide full-time and part-time child care for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers between the age of 2 weeks and 5 years old. All kids in our care are served with breakfast and snacks, and these are already included in the tuition. Due to possible allergies, we run a peanut and tree-nut free environment. We can also offer drop-in care for families that are only looking for occasional child care needs.
Curriculum
We run a play-based daycare with educational activities such as arts & crafts, music, storytime, letters, shapes, and yoga (the children love yoga and it really helps them keep active). We have a nice open space that is furnished and well-decorated. There are bright carpets, wall decors, educational charts posted everywhere, and lots of age-appropriate toys. In addition to English, I also speak Urdu, Hindi, and Pashto and upon your request, I can teach your child these foreign languages (note that our daycare is not a bilingual program).
Safety
To prevent the spread of infectious diseases, we follow health procedures like taking temperatures at drop-off, washing our hands regularly, cleaning surfaces throughout the day, and making sure children that are experiencing cold or flu symptoms are picked up by their parents. There's also a sanitizing station outside my home. Please send us an email or call to book a tour, we would love to meet you and your little one in person!

The owner and her team are amazing. Our 14 months old is thriving and loves it there. She went above and beyond to help our little one adjust at the beginning. I know that our son is cared for and nurtured in a similar way that he would be at home, and for that I am so grateful!

We absolutely love her for our son's care. He is happy and well cared for. Her facility is clean, loving, and supportive of ours son's development. She has excellent communication with families and we feel that her family is an extension of our own. We would highly recommend her care.

We are new at this daycare, but my 4 mos old son has been there for a month now and we have been very happy. She is such a warm and caring person, I love handing my baby boy over to her in the morning because she always greets him with a smile and a hug. As a first time mom, I love the tips she gives me on how to help with his gas or how to make tummy time more fun or how to help keep him calm during a long drive. Her facility is beautiful and... more

After touring several facilities before our daughter was born, we are so glad that we were able to send our daughter to this program. The home-based environment was ideal; both in terms of the individualized attention our daughter received and in the space and cleanliness of the facility itself. The staff was able to get our daughter on a regular feeding routine, which we found to be particularly helpful. Our daughter seemed to really enjoy her... more

I would highly recommend this daycare! The provider and her daughter are the best! We were nervous putting our daughter into daycare at first. This provider communicates very well to us about our daughter and it is VERY clean. Our daughter gets so excited when she sees the provider in the morning at drop off. We are so lucky to have found this daycare!

This provider is amazing, this is our first daycare experience. She has been so accommodating with us and her communication is amazing. She's part of the family. The facility is beautiful, the number of children is perfect since it's small.

Leaving feedback on childcare is something I would never take lightly and those 5/5 scores are more than earned. When any parent leaves their child in the care of someone else 1000+ things cross their mind (well they crossed mine!) Sunscreen, bug spray, Will they eat all their lunch?, Will some one be there to teach right from wrong and sharing? I feel this provider went above and beyond to make G feel welcome and feel safe in a structured... more

My son absolutely loves this daycare. Half the time, he doesn't want to leave. He has so much fun. The space is large and well organized. The provider has made a conscious effort to enforce social distancing among the kids by buying an extra table so the kids can spread out more during activities and snack time. She also has different play stations to keep the kids distanced as much as possible and incorporates lots of outside time. The... more

We love this provider and her daycare. From our first visit on it was a warm and welcoming environment. Our son was immediately comfortable there and with her. He’s excited to see her everyday. She is very professional as well as loving and caring. She makes us feel like part of the family. She has a great large clean space for the kids to play and explore. We couldn’t be happier!

My son is 2 and started this daycare a few weeks ago. I appreciate the small size and warm family feel. He reaches for this provider in the morning and seems happy to go play each day. The staff is great at communicating and seem to really care about the kids and enjoy what they are doing. I’m very glad we found this provider and her child care center.

The provider and her two daughters are great with my son. He comes home, talks nonstop about all the fun they had, and has been learning a bunch since starting. Every part of the daycare is super clean and well taken care of. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

I would highly recommend this place. I admired this Center on her Friendly nature, Clean and Bright Environment. Myself and My hubby had decided to send our son of age 1.3 years as the first kid to this center based on the blind trust we have with this provider. Our Son adores this provider and her counterpart (this provider's Daughter) and he is always happy to go to day care. She is such a caring provider and baby lover. We felt relaxed while... more

We feel so lucky to have found this child care. Our son has been there for about a month so far after previously being at another home day care. The owner and her two daughters clearly love children and are engaging with them. The setup inside is large, bright, well-thought out, and clean. Since this is a new day care, I called references who were previous employers and they had nothing but wonderful things to say about the owner and her... more
