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.

As a first-time mom I had a very hard time dropping off my 4 month old at a daycare but after seeing how lovingly Nargis is with not only my child but all of her kids I knew I made the right decision putting him in Smart Start Home Daycare. Every day we got to her house my son could not wait to get out of the car to go play and learn. She checked in with us several times a day, send pictures and held a log on his routines which was very helpful. I could not have hoped for a better place for my son.
