Samina's Little Jewels

My name is Samina, and I have built my child care to reflect my fifteen years of professional experience and passionate interest in the business, as... well as twenty+ years of experience of raising my own three lovely children. Early development is fundamental to the growth of your child. My tactics teach my children academic and social behaviors, and my aim is to nurture them through both physical and mental growth. My curriculum is play-based, and daily preschool activities include reading and writing skills, recognition and conceptual understanding of numbers and language, learning shapes, colors, and nursery rhymes. Children learn through singing, dancing, toys, books, and repetitive oral exercises. My curriculum prepares children with a head start to succeed in kindergarten. I give them opportunities to be active. Your children are kept engaged and happy with our fun, all-encompassing developmental activities. This is a place where they Learn. Share. Laugh. Grow. Where education care and play go hand in hand. My daughter assists me as a part-time assistant. She has a bachelor's degree in Science, and she helps entertain the kids and manage their activities with creative new ideas. I try to keep a small group to provide quality care and individual attention. This home child care is located in a beautiful, safe neighborhood, close to Tyson's corner at Jarret Valley Dr. My health and safety policies are designed strictly with your child's well-being in mind.
