OPENINGS: We are full at this time.
Welcome to Colesville Farm Schoolhouse, my licensed in-home daycare and preschool in Silver Spring, MD. I’m located in the Colesville Farm Estates neighborhood, near Colesville Local Park. My home has easy access to major roads such as New Hampshire Ave (route 650) and Maryland State Route 200. Perfect for your daily commute to work!

About Me:
I’m the owner of this child care facility as well as the main caregiver and teacher. Like you, I’m also a parent (a mother to 3 children). I’m CPR and First certified so you can be sure that your little one is safe with me at all times. I decided to work with children because it provides me with the opportunity to develop a new purpose each day. I also believe that while working with children, every single second of every single day will shape me to grow as a teacher, but also as a person.
Philosophy:
Children are like a fountain of joy. I can never get enough of their lovely innocent quality combinations of characteristics, their honesty, genuineness, and sincerity. They are so vulnerable, yet so brave. They are energetic and optimistic. They have hope and they are sincere. They believe the best will happen. They are so authentic and show their emotions without fear. Children are open and honest, I find children refreshing and stimulating, joyfully putting more smiles on faces. I want to protect them from any harm as best as I can and give them a chance to prosper and grow in a positive environment by encouraging their personalities and bringing out their unique traits.
Program:
Colesville Farm Schoolhouse follows the Play-based learning approach to make learning more fun and engaging. My program offers extra-curricular activities such as arts & crafts, music, drama/musical theater, circle time, one-on-one group discussion, and puzzles. I also have a great book selection and lots of age-appropriate toys that kids really enjoy. We spend our outdoor playtime in my private playground (which has a video camera for extra safety), and we also go to the nearby community park if the weather permits. In addition to English, I speak Amharic and can expose your child to this foreign language upon request (however, my daycare is not a bilingual or full immersion program). I’m open all through the year between 7:30 am and 5:30 am, Mondays to Fridays. I can provide full-time and part-time care for infants as young as 8 weeks, as well as toddlers and preschoolers up to 5 years old, including children with special needs. Kids attending my program are provided with peanut and tree-nut free snacks (included in the tuition).

We are so grateful to have found Ms. Z. Our daughter started with her temporarily for a few months, and it was her first time in a daycare environment. Ms. Z and Sam clicked immediately, and she was so wonderful with updates throughout the day and clearly cares for the children with her like they are her own. The daycare is always spotless and we loved that they always spent some time outside. Our daughter is only 1 but clearly loved going there... more

We absolutely love this daycare and so does our daughter. The daycare is very spacious and always spotless. The daycare provider cares for our daughter as if she is her own. Whenever we drop off my daughter she has a huge smile on her face and runs to play with the other children and toys. In the afternoon when we pick her up, she never wants to leave because she has had a such a great time. Ms. Z is an excellent daycare provider and we feel... more

We are very satisfied by this home daycare. She provided everything our child needs and beyond. Our child is happy to go every morning and specially excited about to play outside in the backyard (slide, bicycles, ballons). All day long we are keeping updated with pictures which is great.

We knew from the moment we met her that she would be the best caretaker/Teacher for our daughter Bella. She loves her. Even when Bella is at home, she’s always telling us about all the activities she did with her teacher and the other kids. She always goes above and beyond to care for our daughter and treats her like family. She is always helping us and telling us hacks and ways to help Bella develop the best habits. We feel blessed to have... more

We have had our son in the care of Ms. Z for six months. As new parents, handing off your child to a caregiver so you can go to work is a scary thing. One of the things that we appreciate the most about her style is the level of communication. Each morning at drop-off we discuss his previous evening and his mood. During the day we get text updates and photos of him to calm our nervous hearts. At pick-up, we discuss in detail his mood, behavior,... more

When you have your first child people will tell you how hard it is to drop your child off at daycare for the first time, but there really is no way to prepare yourself. Luckily, there are wonderful people like Ms. Z. in this world. From the moment we first dropped our son off for the first time, she has gone above and beyond to help our transition back to work and has taken wonderful care of our son. She is thoughtful, kind, and a communicative.... more

This caregiver has been great to our son Adam. From the very first day she made him feel right at home. She is very loving and thoughtful in everything she does with the kids. Her place is very clean, and spacious and has a lot of activities to keep your little ones entertained and engaged all day long. She also sent me regular updates of my son throughout the day, which was always nice to receive. I recommend her 100%.

She is an incredible caretaker. We always get cute pics of our child when he's sleeping, and frequent updates if there's anything we need to know. She develops a special relationship with each child. Not to mention, our child returns happy every single day, and is excited when we drop him off. Don't hesitate to work with this daycare, they are one of the best we found (and we looked at a lot in the area). Also, very open environment with lots of... more

We sent our son here while our neighborhood daycare provider was closed for five weeks. He had a wonderful time every day, playing inside and outside while being cared for and loved. If we didn't already have a wonderful daycare a few blocks away we wouldn't hesitate sending our son here full time. A truly great experience that I highly recommend if you're looking for a daycare for your child. The love and care from the owner and her family are... more
