Piney Glen Children's Place
​About Us: Hello, parents! Welcome to Piney Glen Children's Place, my loving home daycare in Potomac, MD! 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 am a mother myself, so I can relate to parents and understand your child care needs. 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). My home is also a short drive from the I-270 and I-370 so your commute will be convenient. Thanks for taking the time to reading my profile, please send an email to book a tour. I’d love to meet your family!
Glen Road Kids Playhouse
About Me: Hello parents, thank you for your interest in Glen Road Kids Playhouse! I run a nurturing and educational child care and preschool program in Potomac, MD. I have more than 20 years of child care and early childhood education experience and as a mother myself, I know how difficult it is to look for the best child care for your little one. At my home daycare and preschool, I provide a safe, loving and caring environment, in a smoke-free facility. I treat each child as if they were my own! Besides my 20 years of experience, I have an Associate’s degree and I’m CPR & First-aid certified. I also have a MAT certification, so I can administer medication to all children in my care. Curriculum: Young minds learn so much through play and therefore, I offer a play-based early learning program. My curriculum offers an excellent educational and recreational program with various activities like music, story time, coloring, and a lot more! I also have a fenced backyard and playground where children can enjoy their outdoor playtime. My goal is also to help young parents during their infants' and toddlers' developmental stages such as transitioning from baby bottles to food, learning to walk, potty training, learning to share and interact with other children.

I provide full-time and part-time child care for infants as young as 4 weeks, as well as toddlers and preschoolers up to 5 years old. I can also offer drop-in child care for occasional needs.

Lunch and snacks are included in the tuition and served to all attending kids. Locations: Glen Road Kids Playhouse is located off Glen Road, in the Bedfordshire neighborhood of Potomac, MD (near Travilah and Rockville). I'm a few minutes away for River Rd (route 190), as well as Washington National Pike (I-270) and thus offer easy access to/from Potomac, Rockville, and Bethesda.

Sherman Early Childhood Center at Har Shalom

The Sherman ECC opened in 1972 and has grown to become the pride of... our congregation. In the summer of 2016 our classrooms were completely renovated and feature open spaces and big beautiful windows. In the fall of 2016 our school will be building a state of the art natural playground. Last year we were named Washington FAMILY magazine's Best Preschool, Best Faith-based school, and Best Art Classes. At the Sherman ECC, we believe that each child is a capable and unique individual. Our program provides learning and positive social interaction opportunities for all children through a quality, inclusive and developmentally appropriate program. We nurture children and families in a safe and supportive community. Our program strives to meet the individual needs of each and every child and encourages them to explore their environment through meaningful, relevant and hands-on experiences. Through an array of developmentally appropriate approaches, children develop language, cognitive, social-emotional and physical skills. In addition, our children develop spirituality and an intense feeling of pride in their Jewish heritage, as they observe and participate in Jewish customs and holiday observances. As early childhood professionals, we aim to give each child the opportunity to learn, develop and play to their fullest potential. Our Director, Beth Hoch has been in the early childhood field for over 16 years as a teacher, team leader, and school administrator. She has a passion for Jewish early childhood education and creating an environment where all children are growing and challenged. Beth feels parents are partners and that we work together in the classroom, at home, and in the synagogue to nurture each child and help them grow cognitively, socially, physically, and spiritually through a variety of learning experiences.
