Learning Station Child Care
About Us: Hi Parents, thank you for your interest in Learning Station Child Care, my home-based daycare and preschool in Accokeek, MD. I’m the owner and main caregiver and I have 14 years of experience in child care and early childhood education. I’m CPR & First-aid certified, as well as MAT trained (if needed, I can administer medication to all children in my care). Upon becoming a mother, I remembered how refreshing it is to contribute significantly to children's social, emotional and intellectual growth. So, I decided to stay home with my own children (I'm a mom of 4!) I also decided to help other parents within my community by providing child care services where I am able to watch other children evolve by providing the same loving and nurturing care as I do with my own. Learning Station Child Care is located in the Simmons Acres neighborhood in Accokeek, MD. My home is right off Indian Head Hwy (route 210), not far from the Manokeek Village Center, with easy access to Livingston Rd, Berry Rd and Bensville Rd. Curriculum and Program Since we all have different learning styles, I decided to use various teaching methods not determined by a child's age, but rather by the rate and speed at which a child can acquire one skill before moving on to another skill. In addition to that, I also follow the Play-based approach to make sure children are engaged and have fun while learning. My family child care and preschool program is open year-round from 6 am to 6 pm, Monday through Friday. I can provide full-time care and before and after school care for children from 22 months old up to 6 years old, including children with special needs. Snacks are already included in the tuition and served to all children attending my program. Standard tuition is for a maximum of 10 hours per day (please email to inquire about daycare rates if you need more than 10 hours). Please contact me to schedule a visit, I look forward to meeting your family!

My family home environment allows me to provide small groups as well as individualized care in meeting developmental needs and milestones.

My program is a nurturing, safe, educational and fun learning environment, which includes a Creative Curriculum Philosophy, Biblical Principals, Sign Language, Spanish, Yoga, and Field Trips.
