About

CURRENT OPENINGS: All ages!
About Me:
Hello, parents! Welcome to Sweet Blossoms Kids Playhouse, my charming home-based daycare and preschool in Gaithersburg, MD! I’m the owner and main caregiver of this family child care program. I’m a mother of 2 with 10 years of child care experience. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree and I'm CPR and First-aid certified. I’m also a MAT trained, so I can administer medication to the children in my care if needed.
Philosophy:
I believe that it is necessary to provide a nurturing, friendly, enriching and safe environment for young growing children and thus, I use the Montessori approach. As a former teacher, I have the experience needed to ensure that children have an atmosphere in which each child can experience fun and stimulating activities. At my daycare, I always work hard to provide a growing experience for your child!
Program:
My child care and preschool program is open from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday. I provide both full-time and part-time daycare, as well as drop-in care, for children between the ages of 6 weeks and 5 years old. I can also accommodate before and after school care for kids up to 12 years old (we’re near Flower Hill Elementary and Strawberry Knoll Elementary). My facility is peanut and tree-nut free and meals are served to the children in my care (lunch and snacks are both included in the tuition). I also run a fun and exciting summer camp program!
Program:
Sweet Blossoms Kids Playhouse is located in Gaithersburg MD, in the Flower Hill community. My home is off Centerway Rd and Snouffer School Rd (near Strawberry Knoll Local Park and Flower Hill Park). I’m also just a few minutes away from Midcounty Hwy (route 124) and less than 10 minutes away from the I-270. Thanks for reading my profile, please send an email or call to come by. I look forward to meeting you and your child!

This daycare is a gem. This provider has become like family. Our daughter started going there at 3 months old and absolutely loves the providers. This provider treats our daughter like she would her very own. She goes beyond what would be expected of a daycare provider. When my daughter proved to be resistant to eating solids, this provider spent her own time and money buying and preparing food for my baby to try. She also wipes her down each day so she comes home fresh and clean. This provider has always been very supportive of our parenting style and has worked collaboratively with us to do the best for our daughter. Her own parenting and nurturing abilities are evident in her adult daughters who are very sweet themselves and give the babies extra cuddles when they visit. We are so grateful to have found her daycare and wholeheartedly recommend this daycare to anyone considering a loving family environment for their child.

We love this provider and her facility. We have been attending this daycare since our child was three months old. She is now three, and we can't imagine leaving. This provider cares for us like family, and our children feel loved. They also are learning a lot at this age. Each day they tell us about what they learned. Facilities are very clean and well-above standards at other facilities. We particularly love the baby room, which allows the older children to play freely while the babies rest safely in their own space. This provider works with the children following Montessori standards and curriculum, which is we very much value. Communication with this provider is top-notch and our requests are always listened to and regarded.

My two year old twins have been attending this provider's care since they were two months old. Initially we chose these provider because of their separate room for sleeping babies. Most in home daycares do not offer this separate and safe space. As the twins grew older, we developed very close connections to the providers and they became like family to us. Now, the girls are being taught Montessori-based lessons while receiving individual attention that isn’t always accessible at larger daycares. Communication is easy with these providers, and the girls look forward to going to “school” every day. They happy, healthy, and thriving there!

My Son Vidyarth who is 8 years old now was there in this day care in the year 2011-2012 before he started public school. My daughter who is 2 years old was also in the same day care. The provider is a very sincere and dedicated person and she provides excellent care for kids in her day care. She is loving, caring and also she is a good teacher. She always finds ways to improve her day care by getting learning materials, learning toys, playground stuff. She provides meals and snacks to the kids on time and also the nap. She cleans diapers on time. She does not mind to go that extra mile to take care of kids needs. With her, the kids are in safe hands. Both of my kids were very happy with her. We moved to a different area but We still visit her to share the love of my kids with her. -Buna (Mom of 2 kids)

The owner is a nurturing and caring provider. My daughter developed emotionally, independently and academically during her experience with her. We will miss her a lot. We are grateful that our daughter had the opportunity to spend time with her.

My twins started going to this daycare at 30 months. The provider provides the best care for my boys. When they get dirty from playing outside or from food, she gives them shower, when they dont want to eat their lunch she makes them new one. Her place has a structure, education and so much fun. My twins learned so much, from ABC, numbers, shapes and colors. Her place is always clean a safe. When she was out of town Matthew cried for her for a week. She takes care of my boys as her own.

My daughter started here when she was four months old. It has been a wonderful experience and I am so glad we enrolled our daughter there. The provider is very professional and experienced in Montessori teachings, and we were able to see that everyday with the growth and learning of our daughter. This place provides healthy snacks and the communication is exceptional. I always knew how the day went and my daughter was joyful when she was there. In short, it is a very high quality school and a wonderful experience for our family!

This facility provides wonderful care to my 14-month old son and have been caring for him since he was 4 months old. The environment is ideal for his development because he crawls in the play area and gets to be with other kids too. They are caring and warm individuals who provide a safe and nurturing atmosphere for the kids. Their yard is also equipped with a playground that they have the children use when the weather is nice. I enjoy seeing the photos of my son that they send me during the day. I see my baby's happy face and that makes me feel good to see he is having fun!

The owner is a very nurturing care giver. She believes highly in education, and treats every child as an individual. She takes in account their strengths and weakness, and challenges their little minds from there. My son learn his ABC's, numbers and singing at 2yo. My child was also enriched by the provider's beautiful culture, which made him a calmer and perceptive child. We respect her very much and miss her everyday.
