We sent our son here so he could interact with more kids. He warmed up to Ms. Tariq very quickly, never cried, and withing a week didn't seem upset at all about me leaving. He has make great developmental strides while here. He is speech delayed, but since coming here he is talking more and more. He has started drawing, which was something I could not get him to do. I have noticed at the playground he waits his turn to go down the slide. He overall enjoys coming here and is always happy and in a good mood when I pick him up.

Our son started coming here when he was 5 months old, & we really like it! The fact that he smiles & reaches his arms out to Mrs. Tariq as soon as we arrive every day is all the assurance we needed of how happy and well-cared for he is here. Obviously as an in-home daycare, the facilities aren't as impressive as a bigger institution's, but it's more than made up for in this warm, cozy & loving environment.

Thank his is the most wonderful daycare we have ever found. My son has been attending Star Daycare for 6 months, he is 20 months, now, and he truly loves it! He has learned so much, has so much fun and is so cared for by Mrs. Tariq and her helper!

Mrs. Tariq feels like family, and we are thankful to have found a safe and loving place for our toddler.

Mrs. Tariq and her assistant provide a warm, loving environment for the children in their care. You get the sense that they truly care for each child and genuinely enjoy them. My child always care home clean, fed, and happy!

I have had the privilege to send all three of my children to Star Daycare with Mrs. Tariq over the years. My children all began with her around the ages of 6-10 weeks until they were over 2 and are currently ages 4, 2, and 4 months old. Mrs. Tariq welcomed my children every morning with a smile and hug. My children had wonderful care while they were with her and her assistant Ms. Lettie. I felt as though they treated my children like one of their own.
The daycare environment is also clean and welcoming for a child. There are many toys and activities for infants and toddlers and Mrs. Tariq would also incorporates many songs and books throughout the day to engage the children. There is also a fenced in outdoor area with toys that my children especially enjoyed on beautiful days.
We were very fortunate to have found Star Daycare and highly recommend it.

Mrs. Tariq and her assistant provide top notch care for our one year old. We transitioned our daughter because we wanted her to be around toddlers her age. Within one week of our daughter attending Star Daycare she was walking and attempting to say words. Mrs. Tariq provides a curriculum for learning that is aligned to Fairfax county daycare. She also updates us daily with the progress of our child.

When we drop our baby off she eagerly runs to play and when we pick her up we have to chase her to leave.

Developmentally our daughter has made tremendous gains which was major for us because we wanted to ensure that what we were teaching at home was being implemented at childcare. She also works with your schedule so days that I am running late she accommodates.

We are pleased with selecting Star Day Care as our childcare provider.

Mrs. Tariq has been my baby's part-time daycare provider since she was 3 months old. As a first time mom, I was anxious to choose a daycare but so happy we brought our little one to this place. I can't believe she's 10 months here and she's a year old plus now. We are so thankful that we found this place so close to us. They always provided the best care and love for my baby.


Mrs. Tariq and Letty are both wonderful - responsible, sweet, kind, loving and nurturing. As both of them are mothers as well, I felt I picked the right provider. My baby loves both of them and so do we! They are amazing and has become like a family to us. When I drop her off, my baby smiles and adores both of them. she immediately clings to their arms without crying. I can tell that my baby felt comfortable She also enjoys playtime with other babies. When I pick her up, Mrs. Tariq has been great in informing me about their day-to-day activities. I also like it when Mrs. Tariq showed me the arts and craft projects to enhance their learning experience. On the other note, she informs me about how Adeline's day went as well. They helped my baby through tummy-times, crawling to transition standing and she'll be walking pretty soon!



I cannot say enough wonderful things about the daycare facility itself. It's very clean, well-maintained, new rug carpets, lots of well-organized toys and cribs for the young ones. They also have a very nice play area in the backyard where it is safe. This is the best place for your children to be cared for. It has been great to be able to leave your child feeling that they are safe coz they are in good hands with this daycare while I am at work. I would highly recommend this provider.

It took me a while to find a daycare for my 1 and a half year old son that I felt comfortable leaving him at while my husband and I were at work. Mrs. Tariq and her assistant Letty immediately made us feel at ease. It is so comforting to know he is safe and having fun while we're at work. They have a nice outside backyard play area and a large addition to their house just for the kids. Highly recommend The Star Daycare!

I sent my son to Ms. Tariq when he was only 3 months old. It was very difficult for me to leave him because he was so young, but I had to return to work. Sending him to this daycare made the transition so much easier. They cared for my son so well, holding him, singing to him, and playing with him. I had such peace of mind sending him here. I am so sad that I have to take my son out of Star Daycare, but we are moving. My son loves the staff there, and I know they care deeply for him as well. I highly recommend this daycare to anyone who wants their child to be in a caring and loving environment!

Our son has almost been here a year and every day we walk up to the door he gets super excited and can't wait to play. In fact there are days where my son doesn't want to leave but wants me to stay and play with him! We couldn't suggest Mrs. Tariq any more than we already do when we talk to other people. Our work schedules can sometimes shift and change but it's always accommodated. I always feel that our son is safe and happy when we drop him off.

We had a great experience at Star Daycare. The location was perfect, since we live right down the road. Mrs. Tariq is very loving and also has a wonderful staff. Our daughter attended Star for about nine months, beginning right after she turned one year old. I definitely recommend Star Daycare, especially for small children under age two.You will know your children are in good hands.

We sent our daughter to Mrs. Tariq when she was just ten weeks old. She is now almost two and skips out the door every morning excited to see "all her friends" at Star Daycare. We now also have our four month old son at Star daycare as well and Mrs. Tariq has been such a blessing for our children. I know that they are in good hands when I drop them off each morning and it is so reassuring to see my kids smiling and happy when I pick them up. What more could I ask for?

Ms. Tariq is amazing - we love her. The first time my 14 week old son, Daniel, met her was when I went to pick up his registration paperwork. Daniel was fussy, I was embarrassed... you know the deal. Ms. Tariq took him and did some magical back rub and 3 seconds later, he was cooing and laughing. She's now his best friend. Our relationship with Ms. Tariq has been nothing but wonderful, and our son loves her. Very highly recommended.

Star Daycare is welcoming, clean, and well maintained. Staffed by very kind, friendly women who care greatly about their kids. The hours are accommodating. Provider is willing to work with parents to meet a family's unique needs.

We were very fortunate to have found Star Daycare and Mrs. Tariq. My son started at Star when he was only 4 months old. Mrs. Tariq is very nurturing and accommodating to our son's needs. We know that our son is in good hands with Mrs. Tariq. We highly recommend Star Daycare.

I interviewed several Daycares before feeling good about leaving my new first born with Mrs. Tariq. I cried the first day I left him with her and she reassured me with a warm hug and encouraged me to visit anytime I wanted. There has not been a day that I have picked up my son and he has not had a wide smile.

She truly loves each of her children and her enjoyment shows. The kids learn their alphabets, numbers and sing songs daily that help them learn quickly. The age group is diverse from infant to 2 years so the younger ones benefits from learning from the older children by observing and listening. I plan to stay in touch with Mrs. Tariq as my son gets older because I've come to appreciate her level of care and consider her family.

My toddler went to the Star Daycare full time for 2 and a half months. It was a big change from the daycare center that we used to go to, but we liked that Mrs. Tariq accommodated for individual kids's needs rather than having set rules (such as no morning nap, no warm milk, and must eat table food after 12 months). My daughter seemed much happier here.

I feel so fortunate to have found Mrs. Tariq to care for my daughter from when she was an infant through her busy toddler time! Mrs. Tariq creates an atmosphere of love and family, and my daughter is so happy to go to daycare. She adores Mrs. Tariq and loves playing with her little friends, and I get tremendous comfort from knowing that my daughter is in good hands.

Ms. Tariq was there for us at the moment we needed. After many months looking for daycare, I finally found an available spot at the Star Daycare. Our daughter was born 2 weeks earlier than expected and Ms. Tariq took her when she was just 8 weeks old. Unfortunately we leave too far away from Ms. Tariq and the commute forced us to change daycare once a spot opened just across the street from us. Ms. Tariq took care of our daughter for 1 month, but I can tell that we had a great experience and if wasn't for the distance we would have kept her there. The Star Daycare is a family environment and we appreciate her attention and love to our daughter during that month. They also have an awesome playground outside.

Ms. Tariq took care of my daughter for one year. She also took care of my son. Several feelings come to mind when I think about Ms. Tariq...love, joy, peace, and calm. This woman is family. That's the best way to put it. She's an extension of my own mother. A very nurturing and relaxing nature to her. I can't even type this without a huge wave of love washing over me. My kids are my life, and I trust this woman with my life. The litmus test of happiness for any parent is their children's. My kids were happy with her. Over the moon happy. To infinity and beyond happy. Playing, laughing, and enjoying life. Best decision of my life was putting my kids in her care.

Our active toddler has been with Star Daycare since infancy and has truly thrived and blossomed under Mrs. Tariq's loving, steady and reliable care. We are extremely lucky to have found such a nurturing environment for our daughter -- and a place where she LOVES to play and learn with her daycare buddies. We recommend Star Daycare without reservation.

Our daughter felt comfortable from day one at The Star Daycare - she would always be excited to see Mrs. Tariq when we dropped her off and was happy to be there! Mrs. Tariq was so flexible with our family's non-traditional work schedule, and it gave us piece of mind to know she would be ready to care for our daughter whenever we needed her to be. Mrs. Tariq truly loves children and it showed in her loving care of our daughter. We are very grateful for The Star Daycare and definitely recommend them!

"As a first time father, I was terrified to leave my infant son with anyone, let alone a day care. However, from the moment we met her. Mrs. Tariq made us feel like she would take care of Henry like he was her own. One year later, that is exactly what she has done. Henry is in great hands with her and he loves being there. Every morning when I drop him off he is excited to see her and we have never been anything less than thrilled with the level of care he receives. I can't recommend them highly enough."

We feel very lucky that the Star Daycare was recommended to us. Our daughter absolutely loves going there every day! Mrs. Tariq provides a safe, loving, and fun environment where young children can learn and play. We really appreciate how much individual attention the kids get throughout the day. It's amazing to think back on how much Lexi has gained during her time there-- when she first started, she learned how to eat solid foods by watching the older kids, and today Mrs. Tariq is teaching her letters and numbers! We are comfortable each day that we're leaving Lexi in good hands, and would definitely recommend the Star Daycare.

My husband and I interviewed a half dozen daycares before we found Star Daycare. We lived in DC, and worked in Tysons and Rockville. Mrs. Tariq's location wasn't central to any of those locations, but we felt so comfortable with her after meeting her in person that decided that a drive out of the way was worth it to have fantastic care. We love that she speaks several different languages, and that our son received well rounded care with Mrs. Tariq; he was loved and cared for, and learned and thrived in her care for almost four years. Our son was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome last year, and she was a pro at handling some of the challenges that come along with a kid who's got a touch of OCD and some other quirks (as I fondly call them). Our son just started a new preschool a few weeks ago (to receive additional services, OT, PT, etc.), and while our son is adjusting well, we already miss Mrs. Tariq. We really felt like she was an extended part of our family, and appreciated how much she truly loved and cared for our son.

When I was pregnant with my daughter I had a mix of emotions between excitement to meet her and anxiety in making decisions that would help her grow. Mrs. Tariq relinquished me of any doubt I had about leaving my child with another family during the day. She made my decision easy and since I have never had a single regret. She loves her like a daughter and welcomed her into her daycare and family. I would recommend Star Daycare without a doubt to anyone!
