I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My son attended the school from infant to 5 years old. We had a lovely experience. The teachers are wonderful and patient.

Play and Learn at Scribbles is a wonderful child care center. They are Accredited through the Maryland State Department of Education and at an approved EXCELS Level 3.

The teacher mentioned in the comment above no longer is employed at this center, and it is understandable to be upset by an employee's criminal history, but in this case the teacher was approved to work in a child care center by the State of Maryland and the Maryland State Department of Education.

This teacher left on her own accord and now works for child care housed a very well known medical center in the area.

Please do not dismiss this center due to one parent's opinion. The staff love working with the children and it shines through all of them daily.

I am a parent who is currently in search of a child care facility. After careful consideration, I decided that I adored the Scribbles facility and decided to conduct some research on the staff. I am so glad that I did.... parents, my findings were shocking!! It turns out that the staff member who would be in charge of my child's classroom, Talesha, has a criminal background as well as a restraining/peace order placed on her recently!! It is very disturbing to know that this facility would allow troubled individuals with a violent criminal history to lead their preschoolers!!
