Miss Shahana has been a lifesaver to our family! She has taken excellent, quality care of our 5-month old daughter. Shahana pays attention to our daughter's needs and is very detail oriented - she really listens to us as parents and tries to imitate our way of doing things for our daughter. Her goal is to be the next best thing to 'mom' for any child she takes on. Our daughter is happy to see Shahana everyday and is in excellent spirits at the end of every day. As a working mother, it is extremely comforting and satisfying to know that your baby is in trusted, competent, loving hands. I have seen Shahana develop nurturing, loving feelings towards our baby and that is what makes an excellent childcare provider/educator. Anyone can babysit and run a daycare business, but Shahana is in this for the right reasons. She really cares for the children and wants to make a positive difference in their development starting at a very young age. I can't speak anymore highly of her than I already have. After interviewing countless other in-home daycare operations, we took a chance on Shahana's new childcare operation in Lil'Giggles, and it is the first important, excellent decision we have made for our infant daughter.
Shahana has been a life saver!! I am a first time working mom and I thought months before my daughter came that I had the best daycare provider secured. I couldn’t have been more wrong. After the first week the home provider decided that my part time needs weren’t making her the money that she needed and that she would rather have the full timers that came months after I first met and she had made the commitment to my daughter and I. I then had to find somebody new on very short notice and I was very weary. When I met Shahana it was a world of difference. Shahana loves my little girl and cares for her the same as I would. My little girl is happy to see her and happy when she leaves. I have no worries or doubts when she is in Shahana’s care; I know she is just fine. Her facility is always spotless and Shahana goes above and beyond every single day. Our family loves Shahana and her family and look forward to sharing many years to come!

I would like to express how grateful and blessed we are to have Shahana and the rest of her staff at Lil Giggles in our lives. We recently moved here from California and were lucky enough to come across Lil Giggles Daycare. As stressful as a move cross country is with two young children, the one thing that has NOT been stressful is knowing what great care our son Samuel receives from Shahana. She and her staff truly love caring for our little ones and are fantastic at communicating with the parents on everything - from how they're eating, sleeping, and engaging with others. They also work on developmental milestones and we've already seen our son advancing since he started there. My husband and I are incredibly pleased with the care our son receives at Lil Giggles and can't imagine our lives without Lil Giggles. Alissa Persson (Son, Samuel Persson, 6 months old)
My name is Manjusha Upadhye. My son Veer has been going to Lil Giggles for the past 2 years. We are very happy and satisfied with the daycare. I would like to tell you some of the reasons why we choose this daycare. We were staying right in the neighborhood and had heard a lot about Lil Giggles from a few of our friends.We also did a lot of research on daycares before we settled for Lil Giggles. Unfortunately due to capacity limit we were put on a wait list and so had to go with a commercial daycare for 3-4 months. My son was not doing so well there and lost weight. Once the spot opened up, we moved our son to Lil Giggles and within a month we could see the difference in him. He was eating well, adjusting very nicely in the new routine. Everyone at Lil Giggles was so caring and helpful that I never felt I was leaving my dear child in a daycare. We have moved to Brambleton now and it is a little out of the way to drop my son in Lil Giggles, but I think it is totally worth the effort because of the love and care that he gets here. He is learning a lot as well..counting and numbers...has learned to write and he is just 2 years old! I always recommend Lil Giggles to my friends and colleagues and would love to have those kids experience the same love and care as my son. We cannot imagine a daycare other than Lil Giggles for our child.
My husband and I have been residents of Ashburn for 11 years, and my husband has been a resident of Loudoun County his whole life. A little less than 4 years ago we were looking for a home daycare on the southeast side of Ashburn for our new baby girl. We did our due diligence by searching online for the best child care and Lil Giggles Family Day Home was the only one that exceeded our expectations on both paper and in person. We had our first child under Shahana's care for 3 years and we were so pleased with her care we now have had our second little girl there almost 2 years. Over the years as we have gotten to know Shahana, her employees and her family we have been nothing but pleased with the care and education they have given our little girls. Our girls often don't want to leave because they love being there so much. She teaches them good behavior, good morals, good values and of course the golden rule. My eldest especially has built beautiful relationships and been able to carry them into preschool with 2 children she grew up with at Lil Giggles, coincidentally both of their younger siblings are with my youngest at Lil Giggles. This Daycare is like family to us and we believe in their vision as a business but also trust them to care for our children during the workweek when we cannot since we are both full time employed. To us this was a huge decision and we have been happy ever since making it over 3.5 years ago and trusting Lil Giggles to play such a big part in our baby/toddler development and education. Sincerely, Simpsons.
Please find this letter as a ringing endorsement for Lil Giggles Daycare and the entire ownership & staff (Shahana, Javed...) of this wonderful daycare for our daughter Addison. My wife (Jennifer) and I had our 3rd child later in life. Addison Grace joined our family in April of 2013. She has been attending Lil Giggles since late fall of that year. One of the biggest considerations we faced after her arrival was how to handle daycare? My wife and I are both working professionals, but also knew that we could not entrust our beautiful daughter with just anyone. We looked at a number of larger brick and mortar establishments, but did not feel Addison would get the hands on attention, education, and CARE we required. We were referred to Lil Giggles from a former client who had children with Shahana for years. We stopped by for a site visit and immediately realized this was the right place for Addison. It was clear that they took the care for their children VERY seriously. Cleanliness is a priority, they educate and MOST IMPORTANTLY it was clear that they truly love each child they care for. Again as working professionals, we rely and trust in Lil Giggles. Both my wife and I are always confident that Addison is in a loving and caring environment. She is always happy when we drop her off and pick her up. She loves her friends at daycare and looks forward to each day. From what I have heard, this is not always the circumstance at larger traditional daycares. Thanks for allowing us to share. We are Lil Giggles BIGGEST fans and look forward to Addison's continued care with Shahana! We (and Addison) would be so upset if we did not have Lil Giggles in our lives. Sincerely, Ed & Jen Rowan, Ashburn VA
I am writing to let you know how much Little Giggles Home Daycare means to my family. My 8 month old son, Grant, attends Little Giggles right now. My older son, Evan, also attended Little Giggles prior to going to Pre-K. The quality of care my children have received is exceptional and I can't imagine Grant going anywhere else. I am saying this from experience as I have taken my older son to numerous franchise day cares in the area prior to going to Little Giggles. None of these franchise day cares can provide the kind of genuine care that Ms. Shahana provides. We want Little Giggles to continue so that many more families can experience the same quality of care that my children have received. Sook Ly
