Oh my goodness we will miss our time at Miss Maria's house!! We're sorry to be leaving for a job transfer or we would stay for sure. My mom will be taking over for childcare and I'm giving her things that Maria does that I want her to do for my kiddos. I'm saying, "make sure they get craft time and a nice afternoon nap". And "make sure they play outside as much as possible when it's warm enough outside"! Basement and backyard are set up perfect,clean, and safe for kiddos.
Maria's is so clean and because of that the kiddos rarely got sick. They eat yummy, nutritious breakfast, lunch, and snacks that are provided everyday. This makes getting out of the house a little easier.
Lastly she always has nice kids and families. Before We started I was worried about my toddler learning naughty behaviors and that has never been a concern since being there. I just love that I didn't have to worry when kids were in Maria's care. Thanks for your years with us!! Grateful we found you!

It can sometimes feel overwhelming to find a childcare giver due to the dualistic nature of the parent / childcare giver relationship. On one hand there is the professional relationship, but there is also that intimate relationship that develops when one entrusts their child to the care of another. Maria from Mother's Helper in Huntington Woods best exemplifies both sides of that relationship. We started at Maria's daycare a year ago with our two young sons and were impressed from the get-go. As other reviews have mentioned on here, Maria's in-home daycare is kept spotless which minimizes any illness being spread from child to child. Maria keeps a structured and predictable day, which is an important thing for young children, but the structure doesn't limit the fun. On any day, children at Mother's Helper may be walking to the park, having a picnic out in the play area, or participating in making extremely cute crafts. Our older son also comes home with new songs to sing for us!

Maria starts each day with a hot meal for each of the children and goes out of her way to make each feel welcome. Our older son, having trouble with the transition each morning, was greeted by Maria with a blueberry muffin (his favorite) to cheer him up. She encourages peer interaction throughout the day with all the children playing together, learning important interpersonal skills such as sharing toys and cooperation. Both of our sons developed very good friendships that have continued outside the daycare environment. An emphasis on outside play and gross motor skills are also a big bonus! Play is intermixed with a hot lunch, rest time, and any special activities planned for that day.

I am sad that it is time for us to transition to preschool, but the time that our children spent at Mother's Helper will definitely allow for an easier transition to a school program and we will absolutely be back when our youngest son is ready for a daycare program. If you are looking for an in-home daycare in the metro Detroit area, your search is over! Thank you Maria!

I wholeheartedly recommend Maria's Mother's Helpers day care center. You will not find a more positive, fun, organized and safe daycare. Maria is a special lady who works incredibly hard to provide the kids and parents with a wonderful daycare experience. Her house is exceptionally clean and she runs a well organized daycare. She sends pics of the kids playing or will just send a message to tell you how your child is doing that specific day. She provides healthy meals for the kids and spends her hard earned money on new and very cool toys for the kids. She also buys all the supplies to make projects with kids weekly. My daughter loves project days and I will treasure all the art and projects she has brought home. We received mother and father day gifts that she helped the kids make. It was such an awesome surprise and I am forever grateful to have all these homemade projects. Maria is so creative and giving and goes the extra mile to provide a fun and exciting environment for all the kids. I cannot say enough about the cleanliness of her house and toys. Since we switched daycare approx 5 months , my daughter has not had one cold or a sniffle and always comes home daycare with clean clothes. It is not an easy task to leave your child with anyone but leaving your child who has severe food allergies is incredibly scary. Maria provides a safe environment for my daughter and I dont have to worry. She supervisors all the kids as they are eating and makes sure the kids dont share food with each other. They only eat in the kitchen in separate high chairs so I never have to worry about another child giving my daughter a peanut or cookie or anything. She also provides me with a summary of my daughters day. I.e., what she ate each meal, her diapers, her nap time, her medication times and how potty training is going. Maria is a very loving and professional daycare provider. I will be forever grateful to her and everything she does each and every day to provide my daughter with a fun, loving and safe experience! We love you Maria! Thank you!

Our two daughters have gone to Miss Maria's home daycare since they were six months old. Going back to work was a tough transition after being on maternity leave with the little ones, but each time I made the switch back into the workforce, my mind was at ease knowing they were in Maria's care. Miss Maria's home daycare is like no other! Maria understands what parents want in a childcare provider. She provides a detailed report mapping out your infant's bottles, meals, and diaper changes. She prepares a variety of meals (both breakfast and lunch, plus snacks) for your child to enjoy. She does adorable craft projects and gives plenty of opportunity for the kids to be creative. Over the years, I've noticed Maria spares no expense...she has purchased new outdoor equipment, toys, books, and playhouses. But, by far, one of the most impressive features of Maria's Mothers Helpers is its cleanliness. I can honesty say our girls have never gotten sick or caught anything from the other kiddos at her house. Maria is proactive in keeping her daycare germ-free and if she senses something might be going around, she's upfront with parents. I've always respected the fact that Maria is open to hearing any concerns we may have had, and she will work with your requests to ensure your satisfied with your child's care. Our family has been so fortunate to have found Maria's Mothers Helpers. Our daughters were given exactly what we felt they needed...a nurturing, healthy, and safe environment. Thank you!

Dear Miss Maria,
I can't even imagine our lives if we had not found you. I looked at so many other places (leaving in tears) and told my husband that I could not leave Henry at daycare, and that I could not go back to work. I still remember our visit so vividly when we came to your house. I knew immediately that this would be the place for Henry. It just felt right... Your daycare is so different from other places; it is calm, loving, nurturing, clean, organized, educational and super homey - all in one! The children love you and are so happy at your house. You take amazing care of Henry and all the other kids, and truly love them like they are your own. I love all of the activities that you do with them, and how they can spend so much time outside when the weather is warm. I know that you would do anything for them! You are so supportive and collaborative, and we so appreciate everything that you do for Henry. The pictures that you send to me every morning just make my day! It is so hard to leave him, but you make it so much easier for me to go to work, and to know that he is so well-taken care of - just like he's with family. He is so happy at your house, and he loves your daughters too! I don't know how you do it - we are so impressed with you! Thanks again Miss Maria, we love you!

-Lauren, Andrew & Henry

We are very fortunate that we have someone we completely trust with our daughter Brooklyn. She absolutely loves it, also it helps her go to sleep at night knowing she will wake up and go bye-bye to Marias Mothers Helper! You have been very encouraging and helpful and we will solely miss the day she parts from you to continue her growth as a toddler. However she will continue to grow with you at Mothers Helpers and we will continue to be comforted knowing she is in great/trusting hands! Thank You for everything.

We are so happy we found you! You have set up such a special place for the kids which fosters safety, cleanliness, fun, creativity, and love! Your house is immaculate and your outdoor space is the best. As soon as I walked in I remember feeling a warm energy and a total fit-- and I had looked at a lot of other places that left me feeling "blah". The art projects are so cute and I am so impressed with how organized you are. Thanks for sending pictures throughout the day and loving our daughter the way you do! I highly recommend anyone looking for that home-away-from-home feeling to call you right away! You know you've found a great thing when your child is leaping OUT of your arms into the arms of her caregiver without tears and lots of smiles....nothing better! THANK YOU MARIA'S MOTHER'S HELPERS!

Dear Maria
I can't begin to tell you how many in home day care places I checked out I thought it was a hopeless mission, then I found yours. From the minute I stepped into your house it felt like home. I can't describe the calm feeling I felt....I knew this was it and it was the best feeling for me especially after looking for so long. Your home is spotless and you are so organized. I truly cannot think of anything I don't like. I love how you send several pictures of my baby everyday that means so much to me. You take such good care of our child, I can see he truly loves you. I love that you are flexible with my scheduale. I love the art projects and all the little extras you do.Thank you for everything I am so happy I found you
Much Love....Lisa
