Wahida was a second mother to both of my boys, caring for my oldest for two years and my youngest for 8 months. We knew that the boys were going to be treated like family and given absolute full attention and love. This wasn't something we expected from childcare when we started our search but we were so lucky to have found it. We were heartbroken to leave "Hida" but knew our oldest needed to move on to preschool. We're still incredibly thankful to Wahida for those two years of unconditional love. She is one in a million. Jesse and Carter were lucky boys.

I have been caring for children for over 10 years in many child care centers. I started my own Family Child Care in 2011. I achieved my Child Development Associate (CDA) in August 2011 by completing over 120 hours of childcare related classes, a written and oral test and an on site observation during business hours. I am currently enrolled at Northern Virginia Community College to earn my Associate Degree in Early Childhood Development.

I have also been fingerprinted by local and federal authorities and have had a criminal background check to meet all requirements of a Certified Virginia Childcare Provider and to assure my clients that they have their children in a safe and crime free environment.
