Apple Ridge/Gaithersburg Campus

Georgetown Hill’s Apple Ridge Campus is newly renovated and expanded, located at 10001 Apple Ridge Road in Montgomery Village. We are conveniently serving upper Montgomery County; Germantown, Montgomery Village, Clarksburg, and Goshen areas. Our school offers care for Infants and Toddlers through Transitional Kindergarten. The Apple Ridge/Gaithersburg Campus building also houses our Business Office.


We know one of the factors you take into account when choosing childcare is the price. We completely understand. The good news is that we are likely not out of your price range! In fact, we’ve done our research and when comparing apples to apples, we are likely more inexpensive than many.

Shannon received her Master’s Degree in Education Policy at George Washington University and worked in early childhood development research for almost eight years.
