Rock Creek Manor Playhouse in Rockville is a home-based child care and preschool program located in the Rock Creek Manor / Rock Creek Village neighborhood (near Aspen Hill Park and Aspon Knolls). The daycare is right next to Rock Creek Valley Elementary School, a few minutes away from Veirs Mill Rd (route 586) and Georgia Ave (route 97).
Our home daycare is dedicated to establishing and maintaining a safe, healthy, and high-quality learning environment for the children under our care. We work to develop caring, respectful and responsive relationships with children from infancy through preschool by partnering with families to support their child’s growth and development.
We follow the Play-based learning philosophy and use an age-appropriate and developmentally-appropriate curriculum. We encourage children to express themselves through playing, music, arts & crafts, etc. Our curriculum is also designed to help each child to build their confidence and social skills. In addition to English, we can teach our young students the Amharic language and the American sign language.
I’m the owner and main caregiver and I run the daycare with my full-time assistant. We’re both moms with CPR & First-aid certifications, and can administer over-the-counter and prescription medication since we’re M.A.T trained.
After raising my two wonderful children, I decided to open my own daycare in order to work with children because I love kids and take pleasure in working with children. This has been a long-term dream of mine.
In addition to my child care credentials, I also hold an Associate’s degree in Education. I am a well-trained child care professional, with more than 250 hours of training and a Maryland credential level 4.
We accept children between the age of 3 months and 5 years old. We provide personalized and professional care for every child in my family child care program. My facility has an excellent set up that is designed to provide age-appropriate play, eating, and sleeping areas.
We’re open year-round from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday. Our program offers various flexible options to accommodate your child care needs. We provide full-time and part-time care, as well as drop-in care for any occasional needs. Children attending our program are served with snacks (already included in the tuition).
Before and after school care are also available for school-age kids, up to 8 years old (we’re just within walking distance from Rock Creek Valley Elementary School).
Please contact us through CareLuLu to schedule a visit. We’re looking forward to meeting your family!
