About

CURRENT OPENINGS: For children 2 and up only! Next infant opening is anticipated in March and July 2020!
Burnt Mills Knolls Playhouse is a small, nurturing child care program in Silver Spring, MD! I'm the owner and main caregiver and I run my licensed home daycare with my assistant. Together, we have 13 years of combined child care experience. We are a mother ourselves, so we can relate to your challenges and concerns when it comes to finding the best child care program for your precious one. We are CPR and First-aid certified, as well as MAT trained so we can administer medication to children, if needed. Due to possible allergies, I run peanut and tree-nut free environment. Our home-based daycare is open year-round from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday. We provide full-time care for infants as young as 5 weeks, as well as toddlers and preschoolers up to 5 years old, and part-time care for children between the ages of 2 years and 5 years old. For school-age kids up to 12 years old, we can offer before and after school care (we are close to Cresthaven Elementary School, Pine Crest Elementary School, and Burnt Mills Elementary School). We believe that children learn and develop valuable skills through play, so we follow the Play-based learning approach. If weather permits, we go outside and enjoy outdoor playtime in our large backyard playground. In addition to English, we speak Tigrinya and Amharic and at your request, we can expose your child to these foreign languages (however, my daycare is not a bilingual daycare). Burnt Mills Knolls Playhouse is in the Burnt Mills Knolls community in Silver Spring, MD. Our child care facility is right off New Hampshire Ave (route 650), near Hillandale Local Park (between the White Oak and Hillandale areas of Silver Spring). We're located between the US-29 (Colesville Rd/Columbia Pike) and the I-495, and also just a few minutes away from the I-95. Please send an email or call to schedule a visit, thank you!

This provider is an exceptional day care provider. The place is extremely clean and her care for children is deep from her hurt and it is reflected on how she handles them. I am grateful I find her care for my daughter. Thank you!

We are so happy with this Family Day Care! We initially chose this daycare because it has such a warm and welcoming vibe. The daycare is in the front room of the home, which means it's sunny and bright. Everything is clean and all of the toys are in excellent condition. Most of all we are pleased with the care our son receives. This provider has been wonderful with our son. We know that he is well cared for and in good hands.

We happened upon this daycare when our original daycare plans unexpectedly fell apart my first week back at work! Luckily, she only recently opened her daycare and had some infant spots available, so she was able to take us in the very next day. I'm SO glad we found her. She's so kind to us and our son. You can tell she really enjoys having him there and that he's well taken care of. She keeps a detailed record of his activities throughout the day, which she gives to us when we pick him up. (This is particularly wonderful since I'm one of those annoying moms that is a slave to my baby tracking app.) She also sends us pictures of him throughout the day, which as a first time mom I LOVE! She's been so accommodating, letting us start on such unexpected notice (she only found out we'd be starting there at 7pm the night before we started) and even opening during a snow day so we could make it to work. She also pays a lot of attention to safety and even asked our permission before doing tummy time with our son. She's so thoughtful! Because her daycare is still pretty new, all of the toys and pack n plays are in excellent condition. (The pictures on this website are an accurate reflection of the great shape everything is in.) Have I mentioned how lucky we are that we found her!?!
