ALL ABOUT SMARTY PANTS

Smarty Pants is a small preschool dedicated to providing the best learning environment for the social, emotional and academic development of all children. Each child's individual abilities and interests are given free expression so that education is a natural development of their life. Smarty Pants has been designed to encourage children to explore his/her interests in a creative, artistic and multi-age setting. Certified with the State of Maryland, trained in the Maryland Model for School Readiness and Early Identification Initiative, Cultural and Linguistic Competence and members of NAFCC, NAEYC and other organizations, we strive to provide the best environment for children, staff and families.

 

Our teachers are registered with MSDE and receive more education and child related training than the State requires. We require that all of our teachers hold CPR and First Aid certification and receive at least 12 clock hours of Early Childhood Education classes (yearly) and pass a criminal background investigation (State and FBI).

 

Our daily schedule is consistent, structured and offers child directed decision making. The parent/guardian may enroll child in as many days as is suitable for THAT child. Our class size is small to offer more one-on-one time with children in a beautiful classroom setting. Outside time is spent in our large country setting including; playground, fields, and black top area.

 

We believe in giving each family the individual and excellent care needed in growing a successful child and we look forward to building a future with your family.  We strive to understand the individual needs of all children; value and appreciate individual differences; assist in providing experiences that build skills and confidence; understand, utilize, and share community resources; provide equal opportunities and rights for all; and build partnerships through collaboration. 

 

We are located in the greater Urbana area (Ijamsville) of southern Frederick County, Maryland.
