About Me:
Dear Parents, welcome to Georgian Forest Day School, my family child care and preschool program in Silver Spring, MD! I’m the owner and lead teacher and I have 12 years of experience in child care and early education. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and I’m CPR and First-aid certified. I’m also MAT trained, so I can administer medication to the children in my care. I’m Australian American, but I've also lived in Japan for six years and thus speak Japanese. At your request, I can therefore teach your child a little bit of Japanese (for instance, I know nursery rhymes and lullabies in Japanese that I'll be happy to sing :) I'm also Bangladeshi and speak fluent Bengali. This is a great opportunity for your little one to be exposed to foreign languages and to become multilingual! Although I've lived in four countries in the last 2 decades (Australia, Japan, Bangladesh and the US), my passion for children and the early education field has never dwindled. I still vividly remember my interactions with Japanese children while serving as a foreign instructor in a Japanese school. This career has given me the opportunity to look after my three boys (who are now pursuing degrees in medical school and computer sciences.) When my own children started school in Australia, they did not have any problem adjusting because they were already equipped with all the skills needed for socialization and learning. I want to help get your child ready the same way!
Philosophy:
Each child is unique in their own way and so, I am dedicated to developing each child’s individuality. My goal at Georgian Forest Day School is to help your child to become independent, gain confidence, feel safe while they explore new things and always feel excited about learning. Children grow at their own developmental pace and each child comes from a family that have their own beliefs and values. As a caregiver and early educator, I believe it is my responsibility to understand the child as a whole and tailor my approach to the child’s needs. My goal is to promote the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of each child. I also believe that play should be the base of learning and countless studies have proven that children learn through play. My family child care program therefore uses the play-based approach – allowing kids to be kids -- which also helps children develop their cognitive and socio-emotional skills.
Program:
My home daycare and preschool is open year-round from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday. I have several options to choose from to accommodate your family child care needs: I provide full-time and part-time daycare, as well as drop-in care for children between 6 weeks to 5 years old, including children with special needs. I’m part of the USDA Food program and I serve 3 meals a day to all attending kids (breakfast, lunch, and snacks are already included in the tuition). For older kids up to 12 years old, I can offer before and after school care (I’m within walking distance from Georgian Forest Elementary School and a few minutes away from Bel Pre Elementary School).
Location:
Georgian Forest Day School is located in the Georgian Forest neighborhood of Silver Spring, MD (near Georgian Forest Elementary School and Georgian Forest Local Park). My child care facility is conveniently located for your morning and evening commute since I'm right off Georgia Ave between Wheaton-Glenmont and Aspen Hill, Md. Thank you for taking the time to reading my profile, please call or send me an email to schedule a tour. I’d love to meet you and your little one!

Wonderful lady, with a wonderful disposition, with a wonderful in home daycare. My baby has been going to this provider ever since he was 3 months. My baby is now a 4 year old toddler. I have no complaints and neither does my toddler. I would highly recommend to any parent who is looking for help with child care. This provider is also licensed by the county.

My daughter started at 18mo in August, and loves it there. Wasn't sure how she would do with the transition but she fit right in. Entire basement is setup for daycare, lots of toys and learning activities. Clean facility, friendly and welcoming. My daughter has grown alot in the 10 months shes been there.

I currently have 3 kids at the daycare. She is a very kind woman and since the children have been there they are always happy when they come home. They have adjusted well and she has gone out of her way to accommodate my requests. I would highly recommend her daycare.

My family has had the pleasure of being under this provider’s care for the last 5 years. The owner has taken great care of both my son and daughter. This provider is a wonderful, compassionate caregiver who puts the needs of the children first. As a caregiver to my daughter since she was 6-weeks old, this provider was/is like a second mother to my child. I without question or reservation recommend this provider. With my children in her care, I... more

This provider is a very caring and loving caretaker. I've had my son and my daughter go there and they were excited every morning to see her. She provides healthy meals, and supports their development and growth. My children learned their letters and letter sounds in her care, and came home with new songs she taught them. She felt like family to my children, and I didn't have any doubt that she was doing her best for them. She is patient, kind,... more
