“Our recommendation for Twinkle Tots,

Words cannot adequately express the love we have for Fahima, her family, and Twinkle Tots. Our daughter started at Twinkle Tots when she was just eight months old, and as she turns five, we are reluctantly beginning a new chapter.

Our daughter started her time as the little one who needed care, surrounded by Fahima and the older children. Overtime she became the “big kid” and she developed a sense of responsibility, kindness, and leadership we believe it is is a result of her unique experience at Twinkle Tots.

When you must leave your babies behind each day, you want to know they are well cared for. When you walk away from Twinkle Tots each day, you will have the comfort of knowing your children are not just cared for, they are loved. We feel like we are leaving our daughter with family each day, not a daycare.

We are deeply saddened to be leaving Twinkle Tots, but so happy that more little ones will have the opportunity to spend time in this special place.

“To Whom It May Concern:

Please accept this letter as a recommendation on the behalf of Mrs. Fahima Awan. We have lived in Raleigh, NC since 2012 and have no family in the area. When our son was born in 2014 we enrolled him in a corporate daycare as we were unaware of any other options. The day we were introduced to Fahima our life instantly became calm.

Our son hated the corporate daycare and was sick with ear infections for the better part of 15 months. We could not keep him healthy. This instantly changed when he began going to Twinkle Tots. Kyle loves Fahima and all the kids that she has enrolled. Fahima treats all of the children as her own and has a special bond with each one.

Our family has accepted a promotion which will take us to Baltimore, MD. While we are excited for new opportunities we have very mixed emotions about leaving the Raleigh community. At the very top of those emotions is the realization that our son will no longer have the opportunity to go to Fahima’s house. We will miss her immensely and are very grateful for the impact she has had on our family and our son.

Kyle and Emily M.”

“What a blessing it has been to have Fahima in our children’s lives. Fahima has been caring for our son and daughter during the past year. Fahima cares for both of them as if they were her own. Our toddler daughter loves all of the daily activities at Twinkle Tots, such as singing songs, coloring, and learning letters and numbers. Our infant son has already developed wonderfully, since attending Twinkle Tots, and is always smiling from ear to ear when I pick him up. It devastates me that we have to say goodbye to Twinkle Tots, since we are relocating out of the Raleigh area. I would highly recommend Fahima to anyone who is looking for a loving, nurturing environment for their child. We will miss Fahima and the Twinkle Tots family very much.”

“My daughter, McKinsey has been coming to Fahima’s for the past two years now for before & after school care. Fahima has been a God send to our family. She has provided exceptional care & has taken care of our daughter like she was one of her own. McKinsey has felt right at home & loves playing with the other children. I’m not sure what we would have done if we hadn’t  found Twinkle Tots. We are sad that our daughter will be moving up to middle school next year & will no longer need childcare. We plan to keep in touch & come for visits. If you are looking for childcare, I would highly recommend Fahima without any hesitation. Wish I had known about her when my girls were babies!



“I am pleased to say that Fahima has cared for our two toddlers for the past year while we were living in Cary. From the moment we met her, we knew she was trustworthy, loving, and kind. She nurtured Emma Kate and Carter, providing loving guidance and education along the way. More than just “day care,” my kids would play outside, do arts/crafts, play puppets, read books, dance, and have fun! Without realizing it, they were also learning social skills from interacting with the other kids.

It is with sincere regret that our kids can’t stay at Twinkle Tots. We are moving away from the area, and will miss her so much! Fahima and her family have welcomed us into their hearts and their home. My husband and I couldn’t be more grateful for all they have done for our little ones. I highly recommend Twinkle Tots!

Thanks again!



“To Future Families of Twinkle Tots

Words cannot express the gratitude I have for Fahima Awan and her genuine care that she has given my little girl. My little girl came to her at 1 1/2 years of age and is now 4. I was looking for a caring attentive environment with low ratio of children, a place that would be similar to home if I was a stay at home mom. I had reservations about putting my first child in a large daycare as I am a pediatric occupational therapist who goes into daycare situations daily. I wanted an environment that was very nurturing. I was comforted and relieved that Fahima was able to accommodate my little girl in her home.

She has learned so much and has developed emotionally as well as educationally in this environment. Her entire family is caring and shows a genuine interest in the well being of my child, as well as the other children. I feel as if they are a big part of my family and am truly thankful for the care my little girl has received.”

“To Whom It May Concern:

Our daughter, Penelope, was in Twinkle Tots, under Fahima Awan’s care, from September 2007 up to November 2008.

During that time, Fahima has provided excellent care for Penelope. Fahima has nurtured her spirit, encouraged her creativity, and loved our daughter. We could not have asked for a better person to care for her.

Penelope was very happy, enjoyed her time there, and learned so many new things. She really blossomed under Fahima’s care. Fahima is very qualified, reliable, and professional. As parents, we were at ease leaving our daughter in her care. Fahima would go the extra mile to ensure Penelope’s safety and happiness.

The sense of comfort, confidence and trust we have experienced in leaving Penelope at Fahima’s day care is beyond description.

We fully recommend Fahima Awan’s Twinkle Tots to everyone.”
