Client Testimonials

My son was enrolled with Shaista's Baby Bear Daycare for two years, age 1-3. I left my son in Shaista Mirza and her staffs care with complete trust that he was in a safe, secure environment 5 days per week, 8 hours a day. Throughout the 2 years I was extremely satisfied with the services the daycare provided. They always ensured Griffin was well cared for and I never had any issues with his care. The facility is always clean and tidy, and under control. Shaista and her staff are extremely responsible and highly dedicated. They take the time to understand each child and their needs. I highly recommend Shaista's Baby Bear Daycare to any parent as a childcare provider.

Both of my children went to Shaista’s daycare. Shaista and her team were great with the babies. They were always well cared and loved. Shaista always keep us updated on everything that happened during the day and give us advice. We are very grateful and highly recommend Shaista.

I am a very young mother and searched for daycare for my newborn. Once I met Shaista and saw her home daycare I knew this was where my baby should go. The environment is extremely clean and well kept, on Fridays when i walk in to pick up my daughter they would always be wiping everything down and cleaning everything. I felt so extremely blessed to have Shaista every step of the way. Being so young a lot of things were new and difficult. Shaista helped me learn how to care for Jordyn and also always made sure I was doing good and finishing school. Every morning my mother drops of my daughter and is greeted by a happy and smiling Shaista, they also have a strong bond.

The ladies that work with Shaista are so sweet, patient, kind and very good with the babies and toddlers.

We have formed an extended family here and are excited and saddened to move on to my daughters next chapter.

We have attended Shaista's Daycare for almost 2 years and could not be happier. Shaista and her wonderful assistants truly care about the children and are always smiling and cheerful. The home is in a very safe neighborhood - and is bright, clean and has plenty of room for the children to spread out and enjoy various activities. The children have structured activities and plenty of outdoor time, play time and quiet times. My baby is a wonderful napper here and is happy, fed and rested upon pickup. She is not around children outside of daycare, but we can tell she has really thrived due to being around kids of various ages and is very well socialized because of the interaction. Shaista has been in this profession a very long time and has so much experience that she often guides me as a first time mom if I ask for advice. I could go on and on about how great I feel that we found Shaista. We will be very sad to leave for pre-school but hope for our next baby to get a spot at this highly coveted daycare!
Take care,

Our son Noah went to Shaista's daycare for almost 2 years and we had a wonderful experience.  It was clear from the first day that Shaista and her team love babies!  Every day when I picked him up, he had a big smile on his face and didn't want to leave.  I'm so thankful that we found Shaista's daycare and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a loving and caring environment for their little one!
Take care,

Shaista's home daycare is a wonderful environment for a baby. The ladies are loving, kind and patient. They are very good at keeping the babies on schedule and giving them lots of love and attention. My daughter has blossomed into a curious and loving 2 year old from her experience at Shaista's daycare and I have these ladies to thank for that. I am grateful that my daughter was able to have such great care from a young age.

Shaista and her team have been absolutely wonderful! They have been so kind and loving in caring for our young son. He arrives so happy and never wants to leave! I am so grateful for their care and attention to him. Shaista was highly recommended to me and I have highly recommended her to my friends.

Our daughter started at Shaista's when she was a year old and we could not be happier with the type of care she has received. As a first time mom, I was terrified of leaving our daughter somewhere new, but I knew we had finally found the right caregiver when I met Shaista. Shaista and her assistants provide a loving and nurturing environment for the children they care for. They love what they do and it shows!

As first time parents, we interviewed many daycares and just never felt comfortable until we met Shaista. When we interviewed her, we knew it was a perfect fit. Shaista is warm, caring, nurturing, knowledgeable and most of all loves all the children in her care. Since she was 3 months old, our daughter has thrived in the exceptional care of her and her assistants which definitely put me at ease when I went back to work. She always smiles when she see Shaista in the morning and is always happy when I pick her up. Our daughter has grown and learned so much being in her daycare. We have been so happy with Shaista and her staff and couldn't have asked for a better daycare for our daughter.

We have been so happy with the level of care that Shaista and her assistants have provided for our daughter. Shaista's daycare is a loving, nurturing environment, and our daughter was happy and thriving there.

As first time parents, my husband and I made it a priority early on in my pregnancy to search for an “in-home” child care center that would provide warmth, love and individual attention for our precious daughter, Hannah. Today, Shaista has provided this and so much more for our family. She absolutely loves her profession and is passionate about everything that relates to babies, children and the needs that are essential to a happy, healthy developing child. She allows for transparency believing that all parents are similar in their desire to know that their child is being given adequate care while they have to be away. We know our daughter is happy in Shaista’s home because she squeals with excitement and gives Shaista a big gummy smile “EVERY” morning when she opens her front door. Because of this and so many more reasons- I have been able to return to work full-time with peace of mind knowing that she is in the loving care of Shaista’s Baby Bear Daycare. The staff she has chosen to work beside her are dedicated to providing that same quality care. They love what they do and that makes all the difference to a working parent.

As a first time mom, I was very anxious about dropping my daughter off at daycare, but thankfully I found Shaista and am sooo happy!! Kaylee loves daycare and has been doing great. Shaista's been awesome taking care of her.. in fact she's given me many wonderful advice which has helped me cope through some difficult times with the baby. Knowing that she's in such great care and is having fun during the day, I'm able to go to work without worrying at all which is such a relief for a busy working mom!

Our daughter has been in your care since she was a baby. She has blossomed into an independent smart caring little girl. We are so grateful for all your love and support and for caring for our daughter like she was your own.
Thank you so much!!!
