About

OPENINGS: We are full at this time. Next infant opening is anticipated in December 2024. Next opening for children over 2 will be in May 2024!
Welcome to Burnt Mills Kiddie Cove, my licensed in-home daycare and preschool in Silver Spring, MD. I’m located in the Burnt Mills Manor neighborhood, right off Columbia Pike (US-29). Your commute to work will surely be convenient since I’m only a 5 minutes’ drive away from major roads New Hampshire Ave (route 650) and University Blvd W (route 193).
About Me:
I’m the owner and main caregiver of this nurturing family and high-quality child care and early education program. I’ve been in this industry for 14 years, so you can be sure that your little one is safe with me. Before opening my own daycare, I was a nanny/babysitter in Greece for 4 years before moving here in the US in 1988. Like you, I’m also a mom, so I can certainly relate to your concerns when it comes to finding the best second home for your child. At my daycare, I treat all children as if they were my own, and I strive to create a safe and nurturing environment for them where they can learn and grow, and feel loved.
Program Information:
My daycare is open all year-round from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday. I provide full-time and part-time care for infants as young as 3 months, as well as toddlers and preschoolers up to 5 years old. All kids attending my program are served with lunch and snacks, which are both included in the tuition. Burnt Mills Kiddie Cove follows the Play-based learning approach with fun extra-curricular activities, such as painting, dancing, and singing. Our young students explore colors, numbers, weather, days of the week, seasons, and animals. Depending on their age, toddlers and preschoolers practice coloring, learning how to trace letters in order to spell words, as well as writing their name. Children also go outside to stay active; and once back inside, they have free play with blocks, puzzles, and toys.
Learning Environment:
Our child care space offers a safe learning environment, with bright foam mats and great lighting. We have age-appropriate toys for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. Older children have larger activity sets and babies have smaller toys such as music sets and handheld learning toys. Our walls are painted in bright colors and well decorated to create a happy environment. We also have a circle time center to read books when children arrive, and before nap time. In light of current circumstances, COVID procedures include regular sanitization as well as handwashing when children arrive and in between activities and lunch. When the children wake up from a nap, we wash our faces and hands before we play. Toys are cleaned with a sanitizing spray solution that is less harmful to children than bleach.

We couldn’t ask for a more caring place for our son. He started as a 6 month old and now as a toddler we see his excitement as we pull up each morning. Highly recommend for anyone who wants a small, loving place for daycare.

It is such a relief as a first time mom to leave my child with someone who makes my child smile every time he sees her. I always know he's very happy at daycare! The space is great, and both providers are always so kind to us.

Abi is the best! My wife and I are lucky to have found this provider. Our son loves going to daycare and we can rest easy knowing that he's in good hands while we're at work. She truly loves all of the children that she cares for. If you're looking for a wonderful daycare provider, then I highly recommend her.

My family has been overwhelmingly satisfied with her care of our infant son. She is kind and warm, and my son happily goes into her arms every morning. We especially appreciate the food program (my son now happily eats anything we offer) and the early hours for our work schedule.

I am a type of Mom who cant leave her daughter with any one. If that happens, I keep calling to check on her every minute. Once I let my daughter (15 months) enrolled in this family care, I felt rest. Because, my daughter really got attached to her teacher and her friends. On top of that, every time she went there she was so excited and when it is time to picked her up, she always asked to stay a little longer. And also, during the pandemic... more

My daughter attended daycare / preschool here from 3 months old until she turned 4. We really loved the program here. She always looked forward to coming and often would talk about her friends and the owner, over the weekends. I really felt that she was given excellent care...a very loving and nurturing environment.
