Highly recommend this daycare! Shohreh is very experienced in looking after and teaching kids, she loves kids and always has a good way to educate kids, she is very professional, actually we parents learn a lot from her about how to get along with kids. And she has various interesting learning topics for the kids during the year. Also the daycare has large indoor and outdoor play space with many toys and facilities. My daughter has a very happy time in Shohresh's daycare, she doesn't want to leave in the afternoon when I pick up her, sometimes she asks to go to Shohreh's at weekend.

Our child started attending Ana's daycare at almost 18 months old. He's always excited to go there! We regularly get texted photos of our child-- they paint, dance, read, play outside, and do sensory activities. When I pick him up each day, he excitedly shows off Ana's toys and fusses when we leave! When he first started there and had trouble napping, Ana quickly came up with an effective solution. It's a clean, neat, colorful and fun environment. We feel totally comfortable leaving him there and he loves it!

Our daughter attended this daycare for almost two years. After trying a daycare center, we sought a smaller more nurturing environment where she could continue to learn and develop. Gheorge and Gabriella treat the children like family, and provide specialized attention and structure. We always knew that our daughter was loved and cared for while we worked - that piece of mind is priceless. Our daughter was well prepared for pre-k and transitioned beautifully. We are so thankful for Gheorge and Gabriella! We still stop by whenever we can to spend time and say hello.
