Gayfields Kids Playhouse is a home-based daycare and preschool in Silver Spring, MD. The program is run by a mother of 2 with 5 years of professional child care experience and a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science. She's also CPR & First-aid certified, as well as MAT trained so if needed, she can administer medication to children in her care.

The curriculum and activities are tailored to children based on their age and developmental stage, play-based for babies, and Creative Curriculum for toddlers and preschoolers.

I have had such great experience and feel safe with leaving my child there. This provider is great with my child. He looks forward going there. One other things I love about her is that my son get to learn Ethiopan language. I will recommend her.

This provider is a second mother to my daughter. I searched everywhere for weeks to find a place I was comfortable sending my daughter too and when we found this provider we knew our search was over. The provider took her in with so much love. Our daughter LOVES going to daycare and has even cried when we went to pick her up at the end of the day. The provider is such a great caretaker and a women with her eye on details matched with the compassion of an angel. Recently, she saw that our lunch bag had started to rip up, so the provider carefully put tape everywhere to secure it. It was such a lovely surprise! I happened upon an add on instagram for Abnet's daycare and took a screenshot to show Abnet. When my daughter saw Abnet's photo on my phone she immediately grabbed it and began hugging and kissing it. It shows how well taken care of my daughter really is. Its a home away from home. As for the curriculum, I can rest easy knowing that my daughter is getting good exposure to everything she needs to know, from numbers, to letters, to expressing her feelings. She has recently started communicating her hunger by saying "food" - something we have not taught her! As a busy mom, I know I'm sending my kid to the best daycare here. If you are considering Abnet, don't hesitate! They will be met with so much love, learning, and fun. I can't recommend her enough!
