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).
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!
My family child care and preschool program is open year-round between 7:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday. 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!
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!
