Learn, Play & Grow Daycare, Llc

7600 Charleston Drive, Bethesda, MD

Starting at $395/wk

My program serves children from infants through five years old. I have 10 years of pre-K teaching experience, and I'm licensed and accredited by the Maryland Department of Education Office of Child Care. My goal is to provide a safe, secure environment for your child that fosters physical, social, emotional and cognitive development.

Activities are designed to provide stimulating experiences for the children where they can learn through their own inquisitiveness. The emphasis during the toddler and preschool years is on building self-confidence and encouraging the natural curiosity that toddlers and preschoolers possess. Throughout the day, children enjoy the large variety of play materials that are readily made available to them, as well as creative centers where children can enjoy fun activities such as playing dress up, building with blocks and experimenting at the sensory table. Art, music, language, math and science activities geared to little hands are also introduced.

Really impressed with the quality of teachers here. You can tell they don't hire just anyone, and that made the difference for me when I was visiting and choosing schools. We have been there two years now and I have been extremely pleased with our experience at Family Academy of Bethesda in both the younger and older classrooms. They are rare in that they offer a Montessori-style program for kids as young as one. They take care of things for you and are completely child-centered, and they somehow manage to be laid back and provide a stronger academic program than most schools. The kids are all lively and sweet and engaged-- I was a little worried about preschool crushing my son's spirit, but Family Academy really seems to follow the Montessori idea for real and created a real curiosity and love of learning in my 2-year-old. It is so fun to watch him color and wash dishes and it's clear he enjoys it. The school buildings are a little dilapidated, but I think that's because the staff is focused on quality teaching for the kids rather than expanding and looking fancy to attract more parents. Anyway they are meticulously clean and each classroom is it's own house, which is really cute. Definitely recommend this school if you can get a spot.
