About

Welcome to Sunshine Family Child Care, my in-home daycare in Gaithersburg, MD! I am Swapna Potdar, a mother with 5 years of child care experience. I am CPR and first-aid certified, as well as MAT trained (so I can administer medication to your child if need). I hold a Bachelor’s degree in History and before opening my own daycare, I worked at another licensed daycare and preschool for 5 years. Program: My family child care program is open from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday. I provide full-time and part-time day care for infants as young as 2 weeks, and toddlers and preschoolers up to 5 years old. I also serve peanut-free and tree-nut lunch and snacks to the children in my care (included in the tuition and I'm also part of USDA Food Program). Curriculum: Sunshine Family Child Care is committed to providing high quality child care and early education. I follow the play-based early learning approach since my motto in teaching is "learn as you play", with a focus on stimulating children towards self-initiatives. I also encourage healthy interactions amongst kids and develop cognitive skills utilizing our age-appropriate learning materials and equipment. Here are some of my outstanding services I offer to parents who enrolled their kids in my child care program: - Strong focus on building self-confidence, self-esteem, and initiative-taking - "Learn as you play" environment as an enjoyable learning experience - Focus on faster development of cognitive and motor skills - Promoting an emotionally joyful environment altogether - Children receive plenty of individual attention Location: Sunshine Family Child Care is located off Great Seneca Hwy and Quince Orchard Rd, just a few minutes from the I-270. My home daycare is in the Kentlands neighborhood of Gaithersburg (near Whole Foods and Lowe's at the Kentlands Market Square).

This provider does a great job with the children. She has a clean, safe, and nurturing place. Children also get enough time outdoors for physical activities. This provider is creative in the activities she does with the children. She is just as patient with new children, who maybe anxious, and nervous. I highly recommend her daycare. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions.

My daughter has been to this daycare and it's been a wonderful experience! The provider is wonderful, caring and loving to all the children. She understands the needs of the children very well. She creates both a nurturing and stimulating environment for infants and toddlers to play, grow and learn.I would like to highly recommend her daycare center!

This provider is such a wonderful caregiver. My son has food allergies and is not always an easy toddler. She is always patient and positive and he adores her. He has a newfound love for arts and crafts (thanks to her) and has developed advanced motor and communication skills. Moreover, her space is always clean and organized. I am so glad I found this daycare. I absolutely recommend her.

This provider is absolutely wonderful! My 18 month old is in her care full time during the week and is so happy there. She really goes above and beyond, always having activities, crafts, outdoor time, and great structure. We are blessed to have found her!
