Mary worked as my part-time nanny for almost two years. I cannot say enough positive things about her. She was fantastic with my now 10 year son and 16 year old daughter. She is a highly educated teacher, great at activities with the kids, excellent cook, and always one step ahead of the kids needs. She was always on-time and willing to go the extra mile or stay a little later if required. She made my life in terms of childcare needs very easy. I'm a widower, relying on a lot of childcare providers in the past five years, Mary is the best yet. I never worried about my children when they were under Mary's care and my kids always looked forward to having Mary there after school or other times when she provided care. She is energetic, friendly, and works great with kids, even would arrange play dates or take my kids on fulfilled activities. I strongly recommend her and look forward to continuing to hire Mary, she's awesome.

Welcome to Beloved Moments!

Our home daycare has been a part of the family's lives for over 20 years. Our goal is to provide a place where children know they are accepted, loved, protected, and wanted. We want to help instill a strong sense of self-worth and purpose in every child.
We make sure that each child has numerous positive experiences and interactions every day through our interactive schedule and teaching techniques. It is our goal that when the day is done and the children go home, they feel happy and proud of themselves; eager to tell you about their day to you!

We believe that children need to be treated as individuals and feel safe and secure with opportunities of learning through play, interacting with others and being involved in making decisions.
Children need structure but also a freedom that allows creativity to develop and self-discovery to occur. We allow children to learn at their own pace and choose their own hands-on activities to help them learn and grow.
We encourage independence and personal responsibility by requesting kids to clean up after themselves.
Good communication between parent and provider is a very important part of our quality daycare.
It is because of this we are committed to creating a strong bond with you and your child. We want you to feel completely confident and reassured when you leave your child in our care.

Each child is different, unique, special and will be treated as such.

Each day we feel privileged to have the opportunity to see the world through the eyes of a child, to join in their laughter, and to be included in their day to day activities. This is how we have chosen to spend our days.
We look forward to being able to keep your children smiling and hopefully yours too!

We absolutely love the Learn, Play & Grow Daycare and Mrs. Ana! Mrs. Ana is so wonderful with the children and it's obvious how much the children adore her. Our 18 month old daughter gets excited every morning that she gets to go see Mrs. Ana and the other children. Mrs. Ana makes the learning fun and is constantly coming up with new arts & crafts activities for them. She also has a great outdoor space, which the children love. She is in constant communication with the parents and is always sending pictures and videos of what the children did that day. Not only has Mrs. Ana created a fun and caring environment for the children, she also has made it incredibly safe, which we are so thankful for, especially during this pandemic. Masks are mandatory at drop off & pick up, temperature checks each morning, washing hands coming in and leaving each day, sanitizing all of the toys and equipment daily are just some of the measurements put in place to keep the children safe and healthy. Overall, we could not be more pleased with the Learn, Play & Grow Daycare and how Mrs. Ana cares for and treats the children. We can not wait for our newborn baby boy to be able to go here too!

We have had our son at this daycare since he was 3 months old and he has been there for 2.5 years. Our experience has been so wonderful that our daughter joined him when she was 3 months old. This is the most warm, caring and safe environment. I feel they truly love my children but an added bonus is that they meet or exceed all developmental milestones thanks to personalized attention and focus on learning! Our oldest has a fall birthday and we felt we could delay preschool until age 3 because Elham does such a good job at teaching him. Elham is extremely responsive with the reasonable exception that she is very attentive to the children and cannot answer phones when attention must be on them. Most of the time my kids do not want to leave when I pick them up. During the Covid-Era, they have bent over backwards to keep us safe and to keep daycare open. 5-Stars is not enough- they keep our world going and we trust them with our hearts!
