Braisy's Discovery Daycare (BDD) is focused on nurturing the whole child in an environment that is loving, fun, and safe, and gives children the freedom to be creative. Our curriculum is STEAM infused and offers numerous opportunities for play-based learning throughout the day. Our program supports all areas of child development: physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and language.
At BDD, we believe that play-based learning is the best way for young children to learn and grow. Our approach to education is designed to allow children to engage with their environment in a fun and meaningful way. We understand that every child learns at their own pace and has different strengths and interests. That's why our play-based learning program is individualized to suit each child's needs, allowing them to explore their interests, follow their curiosity, and develop skills and knowledge in a way that suits them best.
Our program is a place where children learn by exploring and problem solving while using their five senses. At BDD, children will use their curiosity, creativity, and imagination while learning, they will build friendships, and they will have fun! Our licensed educators are caring, passionate, and maintain First Aid & CPR certification.
Hours are 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. *Please reach out if you need accommodated hours!
Space is limited to 7 children per day.
Once the size limit is reached a waiting list will be created.
Children do not need to be toilet trained!

Summer Financial Policy- If you plan to keep your child home during the summer break, which is roughly from mid-June to late August, you will only be required to pay one week’s full tuition (before summer break begins) to hold your child’s spot for the
upcoming fall. This policy does not apply if you are teaching/working Summer School and sending your child to daycare on Summer School Staff Duty Days.

Hi! I'm Ms. Christine! I am the Owner and Lead Teacher at Braisy's Discovery Daycare. I have always been passionate about teaching and when I was in second grade, I decided I wanted to be a teacher. Now, I am a former elementary school teacher, a mom to a lovely toddler (who was not a fan of the Easter Bunny as you can see in the picture!), and I have two adorable dogs. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and I have taught 2nd-5th grade throughout my 16 year career. I have recently completed coursework in the Group Care of Infants/ Toddlers and Child Care Family Provider and I am certified in Adult, Child, and Infant First Aid/CPR.
As a former elementary school teacher for Baltimore County Public Schools, I understand the burden of childcare costs when teachers and staff are very underpaid. Braisy's Discovery Daycare was created with teachers and staff in mind; with affordability being a main priority (along with being a loving, nurturing, safe, and trustworthy environment!).
I believe that children thrive in an environment that is filled with love, warmth, and affection.
I love the lasting relationships I form with families! If you're looking for a teacher who will treat your child with the same level of love and care that you would, I invite you to come and see what Braisy's Discovery Daycare has to offer!

"I have known Ms. Bell ever since 2016 when my youngest granddaughter was in 2nd grade. I have to say my granddaughter and I fell in love with this wonderful and amazing, kindhearted teacher that she is. And as my granddaughter started her first day of 3rd grade she was blessed again to have Ms. Bell again. When you feel that way about a special teacher you are eager to learn. Then, my youngest grandson was fortunate enough to have her when he entered 4th grade. Now that my granddaughter is 14 and my grandson is 12, they still talk about her and how much they wish every teacher was just like her. And as far as being a parent or grandparent, I assure you that you will feel at ease and comfortable when you drop your child off every day with this wonderful teacher, that my grand kids and I know and love." - Mitzi R.
"You’ve always been my favorite elementary teacher since I was in 2nd grade." - Grace S.
