I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Although her daycare is not the end all be all of high tech and expensive toys, Monica does offer any child that crosses her path honest love and real care. She treats the children as if they were her own, and shows them from right and wrong. From my own oberservations, I noted that with the children, she holds a great balance of fun and silliness, and control/ discipline. Definitely recommend.

I had and am still having an amazing experience with this daycare provider. My child was attending the facility when the above commenters son was there. Monica truly whole heartily cares about every child there. To say she doesn't care about them is a complete false statement. She provides activities, crafts, games, and outdoor play. Her facility is clean and she serves nutrious meals. Monica provides a safe environment for them to play and grow. My son enjoys daycare so much he will often request to go in the summer. I take him once a week at least because he loves going to their house. I breast fed both my children, and would pop in to nurse if I was close by. Monica was always there being the mommy I couldn't be while I was at work. I can not stay home, and I am so grateful they are with this couple. They provide both my children with love and kindness.
I was recommended to this family by a co-worker who raved about their care. I have also recommended them to others and they feel the same. We love this daycare!
The other benefit is the Spanish spoken in the home my son is learning second language.
All the kids that go to this daycare are like their children. Every holiday, birthday, and even sick day they make them feel important and loved. When my kids are sick, she always checks in to make sure they are ok.
I couldn't recommend this daycare enough and I know dozens who would agree with me.
One persons perspective does not make a place. they were unhappy Monica wouldn't shove an iPad in front of their son all day. That is was something Monica doesn't believe in. A tv or iPad is not childcare.
If you are interested in this facility, see it for yourself. You will walk in And feel the care and love like I did. And please ask for numbers of parents who take their children there. They will paint the true picture of this wonderful place. I couldn't find better care.

My experience with this family and daycare is AMAZING!!! The above comment is embellished to say the least. They provide the best care to the children that go there. They are loving people. I recommend them all the time and have never once heard anything but how those using them are so happy with the care their children receive. I know people who drop in care during the summer because they know Monica will give them the best care. My son leaves happy and excited to come back each day.

My son Rayhan was attending this daycare and he had learning disabily. Monica the daycare provider had different age of kids at her daycare and my son was getting bullied at her day and she didn't want to tell me anything about it. The kid was older then my son and he would bully my son all the time and Monica won't be they while this was happening. She would leave her Mom to watch the kids and her husband would be out doing construction job for someone else even though he is also the daycare provider. These two would force the kids to go to sleep so they can do there side job. For example, once the kids are sleep the daycare provider Monica is also a photographer who would do photoshop on pictures and would it it to the customer. She is so cheap that she would not hire anyone else and she doesn't care about the kids.

I had to pull my 3 year old because she wasn't telling me the truth. My son would cry and puke everyday at her daycare. One time she told my son to clean his puke which I didn't understand why. I don't know how Frederick county gave her a daycare license when she doesn't follow the polices. Also when the parents are next to their child she make it seem like she does her job but when they leave she bosses them around and doesn't pay attention what the kids are doing.

Bottom of the line these toe couples are not job there job. Beside this daycare they do photography and construction job. Frederick county needs to invistagate and please get in touch with me if you have any other questions. My phone number is 646-678-9780
