Drop-in Daycare in Silver Spring MD

Tivoli Little Children's Academy
About Me: Hello, parents! Welcome to Tivoli Little Children's Academy, my family child care and preschool program in the Tivoli neighborhood of Silver Spring, MD. I am the owner and lead teacher of this educational home daycare. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and I’m also CPR and first-aid certified, as well as MAT trained (so I can administer medication to all children in my care). I’m a mother myself and I have 3 years of professional child care and early education experience. However, before opening my licensed daycare, I've had lots of hands-on experience since I come from a large family and I’ve always been babysitting younger children. Philosophy: My observation and experience has shown that conventional wisdom is learned by seeing and hearing. Children do what they see and say what they hear. My goal is to encourage learning through play, lead through play as well as love and respect through play. I also want to teach each child to be nice and kind with one another. My focus is to treat children as unique individuals and develop that uniqueness as they bloom, with the love and respect that is deserved by all. Everyone is a star. No one should be a bully or should be bullied! There is enough stardom for all, so every child should and will shine! Curriculum: I use the Healthy Beginnings early education curriculum to nurture the immense learning and growth potential that every kid has. Part of my program is to help children develop their life-skills, so they can take on any challenges as they grow. In addition to English, I can also expose your child to the Spanish language. “Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning.” This saying made me decide to incorporate the play-based approach in my curriculum. Playing is strongly encouraged in early childhood and, parents are slowly jumping on board with this idea. The school system is moving away from that (forced) compulsive study in the early years of a child's life. Program: My home daycare and preschool is open year-round from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm. I offer various options to accommodate your family child care needs: I can provide full-time and part-time care for infants as young as 2 weeks, as well as toddlers through preschoolers up to 5 years old, including children with special needs up to 20 years old. I’m also open in the summer if you only need a summer camp program. For school-age kids, I can offer before and after school care. My home is near Glenallan Elementary School, Bel Pre Elementary School, and Strathmore Elementary School. Drop-in care is also available for your occasional needs. Breakfast, lunch and afternoon snacks are served to all attending children (included in the tuition). Location: Tivoli Little Children's Academy is off Randolph Rd in Silver Spring (in the Layhill South area near Wheaton-Glenmont and John F. Kennedy High School). My home is just a few minutes away from Georgia Ave (route 97) and the Glenmont Metro Station. Please send an email or call to learn more and schedule a visit. I look forward to meeting you and your little one!

Georgian Forest Day School

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 6:00 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!
