We sent both our oldest boys to Mariela and we loved how caring she was and also loved that she taught them Spanish too. She did lots of activities with the boys and they really enjoyed going to her each day.

We love Mariela! Both my babies came to her at 3 months old and we felt so comfortable and confident that they were safe and happy. She is fun, caring and creative! We feel so lucky to have her in our lives.

My 3 month old child's leg was broken in the care of Mariela Khatibi. Understanding that accidents happen, I was willing to meet with her to see if I could make sense of what had happened. Instead of being remorseful and apologetic, this provider was cold and spiteful towards my family. She did apologize, but she also suggested that if we left there were other families waiting in the wings to take our spots. I don't actually think that was even true... I think it was said just to be hurtful. When I asked her what more could be done to ensure the safety of my child, she said that she'd keep him in a high chair so he'd be out of reach of the older children. When I said that wasn't acceptable because he could not sit up on his own, she told me that if I wanted specialized care for my infant, I should take him to a center so he could be around other children his own age. I was extremely troubled by the notion that safety is considered "specialized care". After finding new care for my kids, I realized how cold and unfriendly Mariela was towards me. It didn't seem like she smiled much. She was all business. She is also a perfectionist and she didn't handle feedback well. She would often disregard what was said to her and continue to do things the way she wanted. She would often give my son sweets right before pick-up at 5pm, which would then make dinner time a challenge. I do think my older child learned a lot while in her care and he liked her a lot. However my baby is a happy baby but he never seemed happy there. My older son said that the baby would cry all day. He is never like that at home and he isn't like that at his new care. My advice... Buyer beware!
