To provide an atmosphere for children where growing up and learning are fun!
Peter Pan Learning Center is privately owned and operated by the Kruhm family. We have been in business since 1979 and we are accredited through the Maryland State Department of Education!
We have been honored by Office Of Children's Services with the award for "Most Family Friendly Policies" and nominated three additional years in both the Infant/Toddler and Preschool Categories. We were also honored by Howard Magazine in 2008 for "Best Day Care in Howard County" and in 2009, 2012, 2013, 2014 as an Honorable Mention for "Best Day Care in Howard County."
We believe that in the first six years of a child's life over fifty percent of their personality and learning skills are developed. Peter Pan's intent is to help your child develop his/her academic and social skills through a well-planned program with consistent guidelines. The foundation of this program is based on a highly qualified, and loving staff who take the utmost pride in providing your child with the best care and education possible. We focus on making each child successful by assessing what their interests are and by introducing them to learning in whole, small, and individual grouping.
Our center is located on 2 1/2 acres of land on a private setting directly across from park land. We have one of the largest play ground areas of any center in Howard County! Our children have opportunities to swing, climb, slide, jump, throw balls, do monkey bars, ride bikes, play in sand, and run! We also have picnic tables for outdoor lunches on nice spring/summer days.
We offer full time care for children ages 6 weeks through 24 months and both half and full day programs for children ages 2-5 during the school year and ages 2-10 during our summer camp program. Our half day programs operate from 9-1 and our hours of operation for full day students are 6:30-6:00. Parents can choose a schedule that best meets the needs of their child. We offer programs from as few as 2 days per week to as many as 5 days per week. Enrollment for both sessions usually begins in February of each year and is on going until all positions are filled.
We offer a transition program for children that do not meet the September 1st cutoff for Kindergarten entrance. This program provides the students with an additional year of academic and social growth and prevents them from repeating a traditional four year old program. The curriculum is based on the Kindergarten program we operated from 1989 until 2007. The students are introduced to sight words, word families, simple readers; math concepts such as time, addition and subtraction, and measurement; science concepts such as animal habitats, magnets, and shadows; and social studies concepts such as map study, recycling, and the neighborhood.
