Fernshire Farms Kids Playhouse
About Me: Welcome to Fernshire Farms Kids Playhouse, my in-home daycare in Gaithersburg, MD! I am a mother myself with 5 years of child care experience. I am CPR and first-aid certified, as well as MAT trained (so I can administer medication to your child if need). I hold a Bachelor’s degree in History and before opening my own daycare, I worked at another licensed daycare and preschool for 5 years. Program: My family child care program is open from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday. I provide full-time and part-time day care for infants as young as 2 weeks, and toddlers and preschoolers up to 5 years old. I also serve peanut-free and tree-nut lunch and snacks to the children in my care (included in the tuition and I'm also part of USDA Food Program). Curriculum: Fernshire Farms Kids Playhouse is committed to providing high quality child care and early education. I follow the play-based early learning approach since my motto in teaching is "learn as you play", with a focus on stimulating children towards self-initiatives. I also encourage healthy interactions amongst kids and develop cognitive skills utilizing our age-appropriate learning materials and equipment. Here are some of my outstanding services I offer to parents who enrolled their kids in my child care program: - Strong focus on building self-confidence, self-esteem, and initiative-taking - "Learn as you play" environment as an enjoyable learning experience - Focus on faster development of cognitive and motor skills - Promoting an emotionally joyful environment altogether - Children receive plenty of individual attention Location: Fernshire Farms Kids Playhouse is located off Great Seneca Hwy and Quince Orchard Rd, just a few minutes from the I-270.

This in-home daycare is in the center of Gaithersburg, close... to the Kentland's, Quince Orchard Blvd, and on the borderline of Germantown. I am the director and infant & toddler teacher.
