Location and Hours
Rock Spring Children’s Center is located at 10401 Fernwood Road, Suite 150 in Bethesda, MD. We are situated at the back side of the Atrium at Rock Spring Park office complex between Route I-270 and Montgomery Mall. The School is open from 7 am to 6 pm, Monday through Friday. Extended Care is available daily until 6:45pm for an additional fee if prior arrangements are made.
The staff is approved by the Maryland State Department of Education Office of Child Care. All staff members come to the School with excellent references, and a background check is processed for each teacher. Teachers receive annual training in curriculum and child development as well as CPR and First Aid. Many of our teachers have been with us for 5, 10 or even 20 years. Our teachers have a great reputation as caring, engaged caregivers and educators. They are the main reason that the School has enjoyed such success.
Rock Spring is licensed by the State of Maryland Department of Education under the authority of the Office of Child Care. The School is overseen by our School President and a Board of Directors consisting of current and former parents, staff, and members of the community. The daily operations of the School are managed by the President, Executive Director, Program Director and Operations Director (collectively, “the Director” or “the administration”).
