About Us

Our Mission

KidzStuff mission is to provide the best foundation for children birth to five through a Christian education with a focus on closing the school readiness gap in the Baltimore Metropolitan Area.

Our Vision

A generation of resilient young learners who are school ready, equipped with faith like Caleb, are fearless like David, and can lead like Deborah.

How it all came to be

Our History

In 1988, the parents of 60 preschool children, ages two through five, enrolled their children in KidzStuff (then known as the Tressler Discovery Center) because they were looking for safe, secure child care that would nurture their children and provide every opportunity to experience the world around them.

Growing with the community

Kidz Stuff Today

Today, the program and the needs of the parents have grown so that the center serves nearly 100 preschoolers and 50 school-age children during the academic year, and an additional 20 school-age children during the summer months.

KidzStuff is licensed by the Maryland State Department of Education Office – Office of Child Care.

The trained staff members of KidzStuff work hard to help children, ages six weeks through 12, develop independent thinking while maintaining the ability to express themselves effectively. By encouraging the use of imagination, creativity, and curiosity, staff members guide the children’s learning and serve as advisers, comforters, and active participants in play.

KidzStuff partners with community businesses and organizations that support the program’s efforts to provide a quality learning environment for children through financial or in-kind contributions.

Partners in Quality Care include Loyola College, United Way of Central Maryland, The Family League of Baltimore City, and the Maryland State Department of Education Child and Adult Care Food Program.

KidzStuff serves all children regardless of race or religious affiliation, while offering Christian-based values and education.

A Christian Child Care Center

Our Philosophy

  • KidzStuff Child Care Center is a Christian childcare center sharing the love of Christ with children and families while working to close the gap for school readiness in Maryland. All families are welcome to explore the wealth of our program for their young learners.
  • We believe each child is uniquely special. It is our goal to provide children with a safe nurturing environment that provides activities for language and communication, creative arts, social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development to enhance and support the development of the whole child.
  • We believe healthy teacher-parent relationships help create exciting programing opportunities around individual student interest, primary languages, and cultural diversities.
  • We service any child whose accommodation can be rendered within the staff’s state recognize certification, and the MSDE OCC student ratio regulation.
