Message From The Owner
Hi parents! I'm the owner and main caregiver at Fran's Kids Playhouse, and I love working with kids! I always maintain a good relationship with parents and do my best to accommodate their needs and concerns. One of my top priorities is to give parents peace of mind. I have 30 years of child care and early childhood education experience. I hold a Child Development Associate's degree as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Library Science. I’m also a CPR and First-aid certified, so you can be sure that your little one is safe and secure at all times.
Curriculum Information
I believe that learning should be fun, which is why I follow the Play-based learning approach. I observe my young students to see how they play, as it says a lot about how I could approach each one of them and their unique learning style. I follow well-crafted lesson plans that include indoor and outdoor activities, art projects, music, reading, free play, etc. In addition to English, I speak Farsi and Persian fluently and upon your request, I can teach your child these foreign languages (my daycare is not a bilingual program though).
Program Details & Hours
Fran's Kids Playhouse is open Monday through Friday, from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm (we're open year-round, including in the summer). I provide full-time and part-time care for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers between the age of 3 months and 5 years old, including children with special needs. I participate in the USDA Food Program and I serve nutritious morning and afternoon snacks to all children in my care (I can also provide lunch with an additional fee). Health and safety is very important to me and children never get sick in my care. I have high standards when it comes to cleanliness, washing hands, etc. Thank you for reading my profile! Please send a message and book a tour through CareLuLu to get your registration fee waived (usually $60!)

Words cannot express how excited we are to have found Fran in Silver Spring. We had some mitigating circumstances but Ms. Fran accommodated us with fidelity! The atmosphere and feel of her daycare was an instant draw to my wife and I and most importantly, our toddler son Derek. We were so blessed to have found her. DJ absolutely loves going there!

Fran is a wonderful child care provider who was like another parent to our children. She provides safe, dependable care, with an age-appropriate learning curriculum, in a warm home environment. She truly is the best of all worlds.

Fran was a wonderful, warm and caring provider for our three children. I party appreciated her knowledge of and attention to best safety practices for infants. Her outdoor play space is large and really allows the children plenty of room to explore and move around. We recommend Fran whole heartedly!
