About

CURRENT OPENINGS: For children 2 and up only!
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).
Philosophy
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.
Curriculum
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.
About Us
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.
Program
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!

This provider is an incredible caregiver! She provides a safe, clean and engaging environment for the children in her care, and is a great communicator with the parents. This provider began watching our daughter when she was just 12 weeks old, and has nurtured and cared for her beyond our expectations. Her love for educating shows, and her passion for watching the children grow and thrive is evident every day. We are so grateful for all that this provider does for our daughter, and highly recommend her as a caregiver!

This provider was an incredible caretaker! My daughter started with her at 12wks old and I could tell that this provider would take amazing care of her as soon as we interviewed with her. She is so warm, caring and thoughtful and really pays attention to the children, their development and their needs. She was checking off developmental milestones and would share the updates with me every month. She is extremely patient with parents, always willing to spend time in the morning or at the end of the day for questions. The facility is warm and cozy with a large outdoor space. We could not have had a better first experience with daycare than with this provider, she is wonderful with children.

This provider is warm, loving and caring for all the children in her care. Her space is extremely clean and organized, and there is a overall calmness to the environment. She and her assistant are always engaged with the children and are very communicative regarding the children's needs. We are very lucky to have found this provider to care for our daughter!
