A coworker recommended Aqsa to me when my daughter was born and I am so happy we took her up on it. From the moment our daughter started she was met with a loving and caring environment. Aqsa and her team were always wonderful, communicated fantastically, and we were never in doubt we chose the perfect place for our daughter. I have nothing but fantastic things to say about our experience and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone!

My son started with Aqsa when he was 6 months old. And was there until he was almost 3. We recently moved to North Carolina which is the only reason we left. He still talks about how he misses "my Aqsa" (although we strongly encouraged calling her Ms Naz :) ). Honestly can't say enough about the care she gave to our son. Our son was there full time and looked forward to drop off every single morning. It felt like dropping him off with family, he was always welcomed warmly and made a custom breakfast each morning. He was even there on weekends and became very attached to her children. Aqsa always availed herself to us for child care even with Kate notice when we needed extra help. I love that all meals were home cooked and organic, although my son looked forward to pizza Friday's! It's a safe place, a clean place and certainly a learning atmosphere. My son was not only counting in English but in Spanish as well by the time he was 20ish months old. He also learned his alphabet young and loved being around all the kids. Whenever I picked him up he had a smile on his face and was always engaged in play or activity. I could even ask for pictures and would receive them from time to time without asking. One night I locked my son in the car and once the police and fire department were able to get him out (winter time) Aqsa welcomes us back into her home even though it was way after hours and gave him his favorite drink and snuggles to help him settle back down and warm back up. Great care. Happy to recommend! Will be in for a visit when we're back in town!

My son has been here since September. I'm beyond please with the care he receives. He's so happy when he goes in the morning and just as happy when I pick him up. He has learned so much within 90 days. Not to mention it so inviting when you walk in.

It is truly a pleasure to write a review about Kids Kingdom. I can not say enough regarding the excellent care my children receive.
My now 2 year old daughter has been going to this daycare for almost a year. She can recite her alphabet, her colors, and counts to 20. She has learned so much. She eats healthy meals and has a structured day. She truly loves going to daycare. I also have an infant that is taken care of. I believe that Ms. Nas goes above and beyond with regards to caring for my children. There has never been a time that I questioned her care.
The rates are more than reasonable for the quality of care your child would receive.
I would recommend this center to any parent that wants to ensure a safe and healthy environment that their child can thrive in.

My son, who is now 16 months old, has been at Kids Kingdom with Aqsa since May 2016. My son has food allergies, sensitive skin, and is very a picky eater. Initially, I wondered whether any daycare provider would truly be able to meet his needs. But Aqsa helped alleviate all my worries! My son is happy, healthy, and thriving at her daycare! Aqsa is always flexible and accommodating and works with us to ensure that our son is cared for in the best way possible. I know for a fact that my son adores her...the evidence is in the huge smile that crosses his face everytime he sees her! Thank you Aqsa for caring for my beloved baby boy as if he were your own! I highly recommend this home daycare!

When my family and I moved to Baltimore daycare was our number one concern. I searched everywhere for an affordable and reliable person, then I found Kids Kingdom! I was very impressed by the daycare, the owner, meal preparation and so much more. Needless to say my son had being attending this daycare and now I consider them more like family. I can call at this last minute and my son is always welcomed with open arms. I love this daycare. I never have to worry about anything, ever! She teaches the children school curriculum, sharing, caring and a whole lot more! If you choose this daycare you will not be disappointed. I love, love, love Kids Kingdom! My son loves Kids Kingdom! I can't say enough about this daycare. 5 stars, no question!

My oldest son started with Aqsa when he was 1 and a half and he loved it. When I had my second child it was difficult for me to drop him off while on maternity leave and he eventually started somewhere closer to home and more convenient for his dad. My second son started at 9 months and he also loves it. He never wants to leave when I pick him up.

I was referred by a friend and I must say.. Finally, I can rest my mind while away from my baby girl! I've tried a couple of different places that weren't quite the right fit, but I'm so glad to have found the right care for my child. I was anxious about returning to work and leaving her full time. Aqsa's impressive, separation weaning made the transition easier for both of us. I love that she plans out the day's schedule to keep things consistent and on the right track too. Her staff is amazing with the kids. My daughter loves it there and I am so grateful.

Terrible!! She is in it just for the money. I really thought she had a genuine interest for my child but that was all a mask. My child needed special attention and she told me that she could not provide that in a nutshell. My child's weight steadily decreased. She had other people watch him as well which at times fed him what he was allergic to. She also told me if I was unhappy she had a waiting list for replacements. Completely unprofessional ! Come to find out she had way too many kids then allowed. When talking to other parents they stated their children would have rashes when they went to her daycare.

Thank you for your review. In this case, parents were not candid about the child's health and development. It is the parent's responsibility to make the caregiver aware of the child's needs, prior to leaving the child in their care. I took every measure within my control to support the child's needs. Including, following their child's diet, counting calories; to ensure that he was consuming healthy portions and communicating observations with the Parents.
I don't like to see a child go. However, It was my professional opinion, that it would be in the child's best interest, to be in a within individualized care. I could not continue to provide care for their child, without taking away from the attention and care of the other children.
Anyone that works with me is approved and screened by the Office Of Child Care. My license has myself & my mom as my co-provider. I take my business very seriously I have never ever had to terminate a contract. I have the right to give notice and terminate the contract just like the parent has the right to and the parent in this case was upset with me because I had given them a notice. My license also holds 4 infants instead of 2 because I have a co provider and have taken an extra 45 hour infant and toddler course. I have never exceeded my maximum capacity at any time. I have passed all my state inspections. This parent was simply angry at me for terminating her contract. I have been in business for over 6 years. I absolutely love all children and LOVE what I do.

My daughter started daycare with Aqsa when she was 3 months old. I was so nervous that first day. When I came to pick my daughter up at the end of the day she was happy as a clam. My mind was set at ease. My daughter has flourished at Aqsa's. She is safe, happy, and loved. Aqsa and her staff carried Leah around all day like I would have and now that she is older they watch her carefully as she plays. Aqsa cooks healthy organic foods for the kids and the play room looks like so much fun. I feel so lucky to have found Aqsa and her staff. They are all excellent.

My son enjoys and looks forward to going to Aqsa's daily. Her daycare is like a second home to him.
My son is on a Gluten free diet and it has been hard in the past to find someone to accommodate his needs. I appreciate knowing that my child is spending his day in a stable, safe and healthy environment. The staff is professional and friendly and she has plenty to keep the kids stimulated throughout the day. I appreciate knowing that my child is in a safe and healthy environment. Aqsa's Kid's Kingdom is a gem!

My daughter loves going to daycare every morning and I love knowing that I am sending to a safe, caring environment while I'm at work. Aqsa is understanding of my schedule and I am so glad that I found this daycare!

I highly recommend Asqa. I am very pleased with the level of care that my daughter receives. The daycare is extremely clean and everyone is friendly.

I thought that my daughter was suffering from just a regular cold and Asqa suggested that I take her to the doctor to check for asthma. I took her the following day and she was diagnosed with asthma. With her years of experience she was able to recognize something as serious as asthma. As a social worker, it is hard for me to trust anyone who is not family to care for my daughter, however I know that she is in good hands with her.

Aqsa has provided back-up services for me on a number of occasions. She's reliable and convenient. I would highly recommend her services.
