Welcome to My Family!
In my small group family child care home I emphasize the importance of the loving relationship that is formed between myself and your child. At the heart of my program is the belief that this personal and lasting relationship provides the best possible learning environment.

Maliheh has been a great care taker for our daughter. From the beginning she has nurtured and provided a space for her to grown. From doing tummy time to practicing ABCs, she makes sure to provide age appropriate activities for the children in her care. Our daughter has grown into a caring, helpful, smart toddler that Maliheh has helped shape.
Maliheh has been flexible with her schedule when necessary, which is so helpful for working parents. She accommodates special requests for personalized care.
We are so grateful for the care she has provided our daughter for the past two years and we look forward to having our next daughter start with her soon.
Maliheh has been an invaluable member of our family for almost 4 years now. As a new parent daycare options can seem so overwhelming, and we really feel like we were so fortunate to have found Maliheh as our daycare provider. Before we even started enrolling our oldest daughter, Maliheh went out of her way to stay in touch and ease our worries before daycare started for Libby at 12 weeks. As she grew up Maliheh was our go-to resource for questions and help on establishing schedules, bottle feeding, when to introduce solids, how to get our child off a pacifier – she always had answers and was always helpful. Maliheh was very good at communicating with us when anything arose that required our attention such as symptoms or possible illness. Maliheh was also very flexible when it came to any changes in drop off or pick up times, as well as notifying us of any schedule changes on her end as well.
The more important quality that Maliheh had that is so hard to find is her genuine care and concern for our children. It is obvious that she loves all the kids she watches. Our children are always happy at drop off and pickup (and only sad if they didn’t want to leave!). She puts in amazing effort on birthdays, holidays, and special occasions, to really make them memorable for us as parents, and special for our children. She does special art projects with our kids and sends them home with us as parents, which is so fun to have and see. On top of that, she is always teaching our children new things. It seems like every week we see a new thing our children can do, and we readily say “Maliheh taught them that.”
As our older daughter got older and we were planning on adding a second child to our family, we had no hesitation and were determined to have Maliheh continue to be our daycare provider. Maliheh was always so helpful in getting Emily on track with naps, recommendations on what we should do at home, and turning her into the happiest baby with the best predictable naps!
Maliheh is not only a knowledgeable, trustworthy, comforting, and responsible childcare provider, but she is and has been our children’s second Mom. Our children love her, and leaving her care is one of the hardest parts about us moving out of the DC area. We selfishly wish we could bring her with us! But know that we were at least so lucky to have her in our lives thus far, we are all better people for knowing her.
