What our parents are saying

I can not say enough wonderful things about Maritza and Boris. My son loved coming here, and we loved having him here. You could tell he was taught so much and he was well cared for. Unfortunately we had to move out of state, and 4 months later my 2 year old still says daily that he misses Boris and Maritza and all of the other children here. It was so great knowing that they were providing a loving environment for my child.

My 10 month old daughter is here with Mrs. Maritza and LOVES it. As a mother it is such a piece of mind knowing my daughter is safe and comfortable while I am away at work. Since the moment we toured we fell in love with the place and the care provided. Natalia has now been here 2 months and learned so much. I cannot express how grateful I am to this facility. Little Star has definitely become a second home to Baby Natalia. They go above and beyond for all the children.

Little Star Daycare has been the best thing for our granddaghter. She has been going there since they opened last year. Maritza and Boris are two of the most professional and loving caregivers you could find. When you look for a daycare to leave your children with, you want a safe place where you know they will be well taken care as if you were there. THIS IS THE PLACE. Besides the care they give, they have a wonderful program which teaches young children to play together and the fundamentals of being around other children in a safe environment. They do circle time, they have outdoor play, arts and crafts, all in a warm and loving surrounding. Maritza, having her knowledge of the Montessori system which she worked for over 10 years, incorporates all her experience with the children. If this wasn't enough, Maritza and Boris prepare nutritional meals that include all the healthy options and they also potty train, which they are so successful at! Our granddaughter is thriving so much.. Her vocabulary increases everyday, both in English and Spanish, and is happy to go there every morning to be with Martiza and Boris. We truly are blessed to have Little Star Daycare, which is a true gem for our neighborhood and our community. Thank you Maritza and Boris for taking care of our precious angels and for giving them a safe, warm-loving, professional, and affordable atmosphere.

It was so comforting to know that our daughter was in good hands while we were at work. Maritza took care of our daughter at both our house and her daycare space, with no issues. She provided amazing homemade food and lots of hugs. As a new mom, it was nice to have a seasoned teacher and mother help me out along the way.

I have seen Maritza and her crew at the park many times. She is wonderful with her children, and never misses an opportunity to educate through play! The kids are happy and compassionate, and they are always inclusive with my kids. Nope, I’m in no way affiliated with Little Star, I’m just a neighbor who can attest to her strength of character from first hand experience. 💜
