CURRENT OPENINGS: All ages!
About Me:
Welcome to Stone Mill Kids Playhouse, my home daycare and preschool in North Potomac, MD! I’m the owner and lead teacher and I have 35 years of child care and early education. Before opening my own daycare, I used to be a preschool teacher. I’m CPR and First-aid certified, as well as MAT trained (so if needed, I can administer medication to all the children attending my daycare).
Curriculum:
I use the Play-based teaching philosophy, allowing children to learn through play. My curriculum focuses on developing motor skills, reasoning, as wells as early literacy and language. In addition to English, I speak Hindi/Oriya and upon your request, I can expose your little one to this foreign language. I also have fun educational activities for my little students such as story and circle time, arts and crafts, etc. And if weather permits, we have outdoor play time!
Program:
My family child care and preschool program is open year-round 24/7. I offer full-time care for infants, toddlers and preschoolers (ages between 2 weeks to 5 years old), and can accommodate part-time care for children ages 2 to 5 years old. Drop-in care is also available for occasional needs. For school-age kids, up to 12 years old, I can offer before and after school care (my home is within walking distance of Stone Mill Elementary School and a few minutes’ drive away from Travilah Elementary School and Lakewood Elementary School). In the summer, I also run a fun summer camp program!
Location:
Stone Mill Kids Playhouse is in the Stonebridge neighborhood of North Potomac / Gaithersburg, MD (near Stone Mill Elementary). My child care program is right off Travilah Rd, just a few minutes away from route 28 (Darnestown Rd/W Montgomery Ave) and the I-270. Thank you for your interest in my daycare, please send an email or call to schedule a tour. I’m looking forward to meeting your family!

This provider is wonderful. She loves our baby! Everyday our child is happy to be there & has a big smile when we pick her up. She’s been a great help encouraging her development in every way. Beautiful & clean environment.

This provider is an incredibly gentle, kind, soft-spoken teacher. That is why my son felt so comfortable in her home while terrified in others. He had never been to daycare before and wouldn't leave my side until we toured this one. Another reason we chose this place over others was the space, it is much larger than other in-home daycares that I toured. Lastly, I liked that the teacher only cares for a handful of children, allowing enough... more

This provider was great to work with. She looked after our son from from when he was only 10 weeks old until he was 5 months old. She was very flexible and accommodating! She was open to any requests including using glass bottles, paced feeding, and recording how much he was drinking and sleeping. My son was always smiling when we dropped him off. She kept us updated on any changes in his behavior and any concerns she had. The only reason that... more

This provider is wonderful. We couldn't be happier bringing our toddler and infant girls to a better place. Now that our 3 yr old is with this provider, she comes home everyday singing songs, reciting the alphabet, counting, and correctly naming her colors. This provider provides a loving, nurturing environment for our girls with plenty of structure for them to learn. We could not recommend a better place for our girls.

This is a wonderful daycare facility. The provider truly cared for our boys as if they were her own. When they were babies, she worked with us to make sure their routine was consistent between home and daycare. As they grew into toddlers, she began to incorporate daily preschool activities. They frequently did arts and craft activities and when the weather was nice they went outside to play. We never had to worry that our boys were placed in... more

My daughter has been in this daycare since she turned three. The provider is very good with children and treats them like family. My daughter misses her whenever we are on vacation. They have become so close and I love the care my daughter gets so much. The daycare is very well kept and she keeps my daughter sharp with her school work.
