Smarty Pants Preschool is located in beautiful, historic, brick schoolhouse building in

Ijamsville Maryland.

Our facility is rich with a strong history of educating children since the 1800’s.   Our building is the original one room school house for Ijamsville, MD.


The schoolhouse has a large open floor plan.  It is located on the property of a quiet country church with a private wooded area backing the property. 


We have a large "natural" playground with ample space and playground equipment for the children's enjoyment.  

We are also very proud of our NATURE TRAIL and outdoor classroom.  There is 7 acres of nature behind the playground and we have created an amazing natural learning environment for our students.


Inside, the classroom has large windows for viewing the beautiful grounds and letting in an abundance of natural light.


The classroom has a kitchen area, two bathrooms, large group meeting areas,

small group meeting areas, learning centers, and storage area.



The physical space of the SMARTY PANTS classroom is organized into 10 indoor interest areas:


The 10 indoor interest areas plus the outdoor space offer multiple opportunities for children to explore, discover, and learn.


Interest areas provide a setting for children to learn academic content and apply skills.


Our facility features amazing outdoor learning spaces!  We have a large fenced playground that includes a mud kitchen, fairy garden, huge sand box, slides, outdoor music station and so much more.  We are so lucky to have a beautiful NATURE TRAIL that has been upgraded to include many components of a GREAT preschool classroom, but in a beautiful wooded area with an active stream just steps behind our adorable building. Our students explore various landscapes throughout the year, including meadows, streams, forests and gardens all right in our very own “backyard.”  We strongly believe that nature-based learning improves a child's academic performance and critical thinking.
