First Steps Family Childcare

5477 Luckpenny Pl, Columbia, MD

Starting at $250/wk

My family day care is a perfect environment to play and learn in. Because of my knowledge and my experience as a teacher, a babysitter, and as a mother, I have been able to transform my home into a high quality daycare. I am licensed by the Maryland State Department of Education (#158491). This is single-family house that is located on the border of Columbia and Ellicott City, near Howard High School, and has easy access to all the main roads in that area.

My family day care is NOT a "basement day care". Every room is designed especially for your little ones. Throughout the house, there are different rooms that have distinct purposes, such as those for playing and for learning. Children take their naps in a quiet bedroom, where they have their own crib or bed. My home is clean and safe with a nice fenced backyard and a large deck. Your child will receive healthy snacks and homemade meals every day.

I provide a preschool program based on the Howard County curriculum, with daily activities focused on early learning skills. I believe the best way to raise a child is with positive encouragement, praise, trust, and respect. My Polish background helps me combine European tradition, discipline, and simplicity with American values and lifestyle (bilingual). Right now, I have an opening for toddlers (2 years old or older).

Quala Care Child Center, Inc.

920 Andover Road, Linthicum, MD

Starting at $258/wk

Established in 1990, Quala Care Child Center is a family-owned early education center that exists to provide an affordable, high-quality, developmentally appropriate environment that promotes each child's social/emotional, physical, and cognitive development. Children learn by active participation in play and our curriculum is designed to enhance the growth of the whole child.

Our goal is to provide for each child a warm and nurturing environment that encourages the development of social skills, independence, and a positive self-image. Our experienced teaching staff embraces the view that each child is a unique person with an individual pattern and timing of social, physical, and intellectual development. Teachers manifest their respect for children by encouraging them to think for themselves, to make decisions, to work towards their own solutions, and express their own ideas and feelings.

Quala Care embraces the belief that parents are the first and most important teachers of their children! We recognize and foster an active partnership between home and school. Parents are welcome visitors in the classroom at all times and are encouraged to participate in a variety of center activities, including birthday and holiday celebrations, field trips, and other social events. We are a learning community where personal and professional growth is encouraged, and where everyone's perspective - children, parents, and teachers - is valued!

Open Monday-Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Let's Start Smart

7722 Suffolk Way, Hanover, MD

Costimate: $209/wk

Let's Start Smart (LSS) is targeted toward Stay-at-Home-Moms and moms who are Homeschoolers of toddlers, all of whom would enjoy the availability of part-time preschool classes. The ideal classes would offer the moms a few hours of peace to themselves as well as the camaraderie of other moms! LSS offers part-time preschool classes for children ages 2 - 5. Each class is designed to prepare children for the rigors of kindergarten in a fun and engaging atmosphere. During class time children participate in a fun array of activities including circle time, finger play, read-alouds, arts-and- crafts, phoneme and number awareness and more! Among the many subjects emphasized, children develop skills such as critical thinking, team work, independence and social interaction. The school's course of study utilizes a nationally acclaimed curriculum whose methods have been proven to prepare toddlers for kindergarten. The school's living classroom is host to a number of butterflies and local wildlife. Children delight in their observations and the staff takes every opportunity to expand on the children's' natural curiosity by incorporating science- based philosophies in real time applications.

As an added bonus to the preschool classes for the little ones, staff, parents and children additionally get together weekly for Mommy & Me planned activities. The school's weekly social time is a time for the school community to relax, swap stories, share concerns, encourage each other, make friends and of course, have fun! With the exception of Kindermusic lessons, most play-date activities are appropriate for infants and toddlers, so please feel free to bring along siblings to let them join in the fun! During music lessons the program plans to have an extra pair of hands on site to lend support.

In an effort to preserve the authenticity, quality and relationship among the group members, class sizes are intentionally very small. Interested families are encouraged to reserve a spot for each child for the 2012 - 2013 school year.
