Our son Veer joined Delight Home Daycare when he was 15 months old. I am one among the freaking moms who cannot compromise on quality , this place was referred by a friend of mine who had an amazing experience too. I would take the privilege to leave a feedback with a hope that it helps another mom on the daycare watch out.
As a working mom , I struggled with my son’s meals and his food habits , after few weeks of his transition I felt an angel came in my life and solved my problems with her magic. And YES that angel is Soma, she is very caring , loving and patient with kids. Veer’s transition was so smooth that after two weeks he would be excited when I reached the driveway to drop him. Evening pick ups were equally happy with smiles , my heart and brain both were on the same page this time. This daycare taught my son being independent , healthy food and sleep habits improved speech and motor skills. It’s amazing that he has something new every day to learn , the highlights are art work, story time and circle time for him.
We are so happy that we found this place , Veer truly feels at home. The facility is very clean , spacious and very well organized with toys , educational charts on walls, lot of puzzles ,books , beautiful playground and sleeping arrangements are top notch. They also celebrate birthday parties and occasions like Halloween, Christmas etc which is big fun for kids.
Soma goes above and beyond in maintaining healthy nutrition options in her menu, and attention to detail around her daily reports. I always crossed my fingers during winter time but my kid gets hardly sick here. She takes special care when kids have cold, sanitizing the toys on a daily basis and monitors a great process to avoid any contagious situation for other kids.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! A day doesn't go by, that I don't sit at my desk and think the only reason I can be at work and not at home is because I trust Veer is having a wonderful time, is safe and so well cared for. God Bless you and your family , your passion for kids is helping the working moms society!!

I would like to highly recommend Shabnam (Soma) as a child care provider as she is an outstanding child care professional that always goes above and beyond. Shabnam was our son’s care provider for several years, and all of us including our son have nothing but the fondest memories of her. He still wants to go and stay with her even though he is now enrolled in elementary school – second grade. Shabnam is a caring, genuine person with ability to relate to children with politeness, respect, patience and warmth, so we knew that our son is safe with her. Shabnam was very respectful and understanding for the parents as well. She is educated and can speak, read, write in English very effectively. Our son’s speaking and communicating skills improved tremendously during the time that he spent with her care. Shabnam took an active role in enhancing his education and also made sure that the kids got plenty of exercise. She truly gave our son an incredible start to preschool. Each day our son would wake really excited to see Shabnam. She made everyday fun and full of new learning experiences. She sat on the floor with the children and interacted with them. Shabnam genuinely cares about children and has endless patience. As parents we really liked the daily communication about our son’s day and progress. Now our son is a second grader in elementary school and he still talks about Shabnam. Shabnam is organized and runs a structured day, and the children happily follow the routine. The children under Shabnam’s care are happy and content. Shabnam is positive and encouraging. Shabnam is qualified, educated and full of experiences with children. I strongly, without reservation, recommend Shabnam as a child care provider. Any child that gets to spend time with Shabnam will be happy and fulfilled.
"Being new to the area, my husband and I visited over twelve daycare facilities until we were fortunate to find Delight Home Daycare LLC and Soma. No place had the warmth, love, and security that we felt with Soma caring for our two girls. My three year old has learned so much in our eight months at this school, her vocabulary is strong, she is excited about learning and her manners are exceptional. My baby is 19 months old and adores Soma and all her little friends at school. She is speaking so well and learning social skills and manners. We look forward to watching them grow and learn for months to come! I appreciate how communicative Soma is and the advise she provides. She provides detailed write ups and art projects daily. We also love that they have a smile on their faces at drop off and pick up. My husband and I are so blessed to have our little girls under the care and love of Soma. It truly takes a village to raise children, and we are so happy to have Soma and all the children at Delight Home Daycare part of ours! Soma isn't just our day care provider, she is part of our family. We know she loves our girls and we love her."

"Our son has been going to delight daycare since he was 9 months old.Soma is an excellent care giver.The daycare is very clean and well maintained. They have a lot of different toys, books, puzzles, games, blocks, legos and whatever you can think of for kids to play with.
She always makes an effort to do things to make the day care better.Thers a lot of dancing and art work and learning on a daily basis. Truly appreciate all the hard work and time she puts in our kid.It was the best decision ever made.Thank you Soma for everything.
"Shabnam is amazing. She cares for my child right alongside her own children, ages 5 and a little over a year. Their home is outfitted with a full finished basement dedicated to the daycare, with alphabet mats, toys, books, and tables. The children spend a lot of the day learning, doing preschool books, and playing. There is no TV in the basement. Soma herself is warm, funny, friendly, and great with the children. She has watched my daughter from infancy, and I highly recommend her to anyone. She is incredibly flexible when I have morning meetings, or my husband works late, and my daughter loves her and her kids."
"My son goes to Delight Daycare and started when was 8 weeks old and is now almost 2. I couldn't have asked for a better experience or person to take care of him! Soma is very professional, provides great notes about what goes on during the day, and takes the best care of children at all ages. She is able to give each child all the attention they need. Soma makes all kinds of art projects and activities for the toddlers to do, and really uses all of her expertise. Her house is very warm and welcoming, but also very clean! He loves all of the kids that go to Delight Daycare! I very highly recommend Soma! Most of all she gives him love each and every day which I think is one of the most important things you could ask of someone taking care of your child." Melissa R.
"Soma is a loving caring individual that I am so grateful Ive found. As parents entrusting someone new to care of your children can be difficult. However, from the day we met Soma, she gave me a very structured schedule, and clear understanding of what she could and could not provide. She listened to my concerns was very patient with answering all my questions. Soma effectively communicates with parents with any schedule or staff changes and ensures that all parents are aware and informed at all times. The daily sheet sheet she provides at the end of my childs day is extremley thorough and informative. I refer to it everyday to track behavior changes and eating schedule, so I can keep my baby on that same schedule when she is at home. The babies also have their own room which I really love. Soma is also very determined, and has helped so much in getting my daughter on solid foods. Soma is attentive with my child and I really appreciate her and the help and care she provides for my little one. She is wonderful provider and great mom. I would definitely recommended this daycare for anyone that needs an in home provider."

My daughter Maira has been going to delight home day care since she was 8 months old she is now 4. we appreciate all the love and care she gets from the place. Soma and her staff ensures a structured curriculum is enforced with attention to small details to bigger goals. She communicates with the parents on the development of the child all along the way. They are a very clean and hygiene oriented facility,sending a child to daycare my main worry was “ I don’t want my child to be sick” and I am very happy and thank my lucky stars that my kid hardly ever got sick because of the daycare. Soma takes pride and rightfully so about the way she keeps the place. I can go on and on about the best things about this place but here are a few great points - kids learn to be independent quite early ( eating on their own, cleaning up after themselves and more) - They have a curriculum that helps kids development - she teaches kids behavior habits - clean and safe environment My kid loves it here and I would recommend it to any new parent this wonderful place I now have a close friend in Soma and her family and her daycare is definitely a great place I have come across in this area.
"I cannot say enough GREAT things about Delight Home Daycare. My daughter has been going there for the last 8 months shortly after her first birthday. Soma and Sonya welcomed her with open arms and have been a joy to work with. My family and I had been looking for several months and upon finding Soma we knew immediately that our daughter would be in great hands. The home is clean and the food is great! I know she is cared for and loved while I am working. Additionally, Soma sends photos and a daily update on what has gone on each day. The communication is stellar.Most importantly, my daughter is HAPPY. She gets excited upon arrival and mentioning going to school. She is learning concepts and growing in all areas. I would recommend Delight Home Daycare to any family looking for a loving, clean and healthy environment."
