• Cozy Care, Quality Education.

    We utilize the MSDE approved curriculum Investigators Club, which exposes the children to many domains of learning, including Language, Math, Science, Social Studies and the Arts. Our teachers take advantage of many continuing education opportunities, giving them lots of tools and ideas for their classroom. We exceed the MSDE Office of Child Care requirements for teachers, and all of our teachers hold their Maryland Child Care Credential, most at a level 4 or higher. 

  • Welcome to Grannie Annie’s!

    Grannie Annie’s Child Care & Learning Center has been providing cozy care and quality education for families in Pasadena, MD since 2003. The owners, Ann Golueke (Grannie Annie, herself) and Ruthi Claytor each have more than 22 years of experience caring for children of all ages. At Grannie Annie’s our mission is to create an environment where parents and caregivers work together in the development of our children.

    Infants & Toddlers

    Infants & Toddlers

    With a class size of only three children in the Bee's Room, we are able to offer each child one-on-one attention from the teacher throughout the day.

    The parents and teachers use a written daily note to communicate important information about the child and his day.

    Our teachers are very knowledgeable in child development and use regular observations of the children to track progress and provide opportunities for growth towards the next milestone.

    In the Caterpillar Room, the children are working mostly on social and emotional skills. We guide them in learning how to get along in a group, take turns and sharing. We also assist in self help skills like potty training and dressing.

    With lots of sensory activities, fine-motor manipulation and gross-motor play, the children are working on their pre-reading, pre-writing and pre-math skills.

    3 to 4 Year Olds

    Pre-School / Pre-Kindergarten

    By the time our children leave the Butterfly Room, they are very ready for Kindergarten. Our MSDE approved curriculum, Investigators Club, prepares the children in all of the domains of development: Math, Science, Social Studies, Language and the Arts.

    There are eight units in the curriculum, each very relevant to the children's lives, which are covered during the school year. Our children’s learning continues through the summer with a Camp theme that changes each summer. We also continue the social / emotional development in this classroom to be sure that the children enter Kindergarten ready to learn!

    We also provide transportation to and from the public half-day PreK programs at Riviera Beach, Sunset, and Solley Elementary Schools.

    Summer Camps

    Summer Camps

    Before Kindergarten, our program is year-round. Once the children exit Kindergarten, they are eligible for our Summer Camp program. We do a different theme each summer and we get the kids on the go as much as possible.

    Our local field trips include swimming, bowling, jazzercise, movies, Amazing Athletes, cooking and the park. We do a big field trip every other week during the summer that relates to the theme. For example, we’ve been to the Wolfgang Candy Factory in York PA during our “Around the World” theme, and the Air & Space Museum in Chantilly VA during our “Up, Up and Away” theme. Summer Camp for the School-agers is a full-day, full-summer program.

  • The Caterpillar Room

    "As a mom, you want to feel comfortable, confident and know that your child is safe and going to be well taken care of when you drop them off in daycare. Grannie Annie's makes me feel that way when I leave my daughter with them. They give very good TLC and when I pick her up, I know she will have a smile on her face."

  • The Butterfly Room

  • Our Staff

    Grannie Annie’s has a great team of teachers, some of whom have been with the Center for more than 9 years. By always striving to educate ourselves with new ideas and techniques, we are well equipped to prepare our children for school.

    Our teachers strive for partnerships with the families through open communication so that we can all work together for our children.

  • Our Playground

    Tall trees offer much shade on our roomy playground. There are many opportunities for the children to run, climb, kick, pedal and dig their way to healthy bodies and minds.

    In the summer, we do lots of water exploration and cool off in the sprinkler. In the winter, we don our hats and boots and head out into the snow. Our picnic tables are the perfect place to eat snack or lunch outside on perfect spring and fall days.
