I am the owner and main caregiver of this licensed family child care program and I have a total of​ ​15 years of experience. Before opening my own daycare, I worked at another licensed facility for 13 years, and as a nanny for 3 years. These experiences, along with raising my own 4 children, helped me become an expert in providing quality child care and early education.

I’m CPR, first-aid certified, and at my daycare, you will have peace of mind since the safety and security of​ ​every child is my top priority! Program: My family child care program is open year-round from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday. If needed, I can also accommodate earlier or later hours (please email to discuss). I offer full-time and part-time care for infants as young as 1 week, as well as toddlers through preschoolers up to 5 years old, including children with special needs. Breakfast, snacks and lunch are served to all attending kids (included in the tuition!) In addition to English, I speak Farsi/Persian and at your request, I can expose your child to this foreign language. My facility also offers plenty of outdoor fun – I have a backyard, and also a community playground (with pool) near my home. Location: Piney Glen Children's Place is located in the Piney Glen Village neighborhood of Potomac, MD. I’m right off Shady Grove Rd and a few minutes away from Darnestown Rd (route 28).

Home Away From Home
Hi parents, welcome to Home Away From Home! There is no better place for your child to learn and grow. We are a licensed child care provider located in North Potomac, offering a wonderful learning environment and individualized program to help your child reach their full potential. Our curriculum is designed to provide an environment where teachers support the nurturing and learning that the children want and need. Students are offered the opportunity to develop their natural curiosity and creativity and they can develop a lifelong love of learning. Learning concepts are brought to life in fun and imaginative ways, and enrichment programs are also available to expose children to the skills necessary to support their active lives, develop positive self-esteem and set the foundation for a healthy lifestyle. We stress the importance of a single, consistent caregiver for the majority of the day. This caregiver provides a written daily report for the parents. There is one caregiver for every 3 children in the infant and toddler room. Each room has a primary caregiver who performs the entire one on one range of care giving routines (feeding, changing, comforting, etc.) for that child, and with whom the child forms a bond of intimacy and reassurance. In the infant room, our experienced caregivers is carefully trained to help babies feel safe, loved and well cared-for. They understand the importance of talking to the children, making eye contact, singing silly songs, cuddling and the gentle guidance needed by the children through the use of positive discipline. In the toddler room, the environment is rich in materials which encourage exploration, active, and interactive play. Once young children develop a sense of trust, we help them become independent and self confident as they develop social, language and motor skills. Daily activities include story time, music, outdoor play as well as indoor play with age appropriate toys. Toddlers also do art activities each day using a variety of materials. Preschoolers are also introduced to activities such as sequencing and matching, story telling, process-writing to foster cognitive skills, social skill and language and art skills. Our learning centers encourage self-reliance and provide opportunities for children to develop their self confidence. Children also practice their decision making as they navigate from center to center. Children are encouraged to progress at their own pace according to their individual needs and abilities. We provide cribs, cots, sheets, blankets, morning and afternoon snacks, milk and juice. Diversity is an important part of our program and is emphasized in every room. We happily accept children of all races, nationalities and lifestyles. We will do our best to accommodate children with special needs. Thank you so much, we look forward to welcoming you and your child at Home Away From Home!

I run our family child care program with my assistant who is also a mother of 4 children! I started my career in education as a French teacher for school-aged children in Montgomery County. I then decided to focus on early education, and worked at several child care centers and preschools. Taking care and teaching young children has always made me happy. I love spending time with children, playing with them, and helping them learn. That's when I decided to open my own home daycare!
