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!
