From the first day I met Elie, I knew my 2 year old daughter was in excellent hands. She made the daycare experience wonderful not only for my daughter but for both my husband and I as well. Her extensive knowledge of early childhood education as well as her experience as an educator and mother make her the ideal person to work with childrenJudy Renwick, Montreal, Parent
With 2 kids, having gone through 3 different daycare, I have interacted with a fair share of educators. Some have been great and some less so. Elie is superior to all them. In fact, she’s so far above the range that she’s in a whole other playing field. Most important, her love and understanding of children is undeniable. It is clear that being among kids is what she was meant to do. The affection and respect between them is natural and clearly obvious. But also important, and rare, is her ability to talk to and sensitivity towards us parents. She is always candid and open and clearly understands the concerns and struggles we go through in leaving our kids in another’s hands. I was heartbroken when she moved. And now, almost a year later, though she lives in a different province, my kids and I still skype with her regularly. She is irreplaceable and I count myself very lucky that we got to have in her our daily lives for a period of time.

There are very few people in your life who will love your kids as much as you do; one of those people for our family is our boys’ former childcare educator, Elie Rastegar. Elie looked after both our boys from the age of 11 months to nearly six years old. Elie is kind, generous, gentle but firm and thoughtful. She has a real gift for education that springs from the genuine love she has for the children. Her passion for early childcare education manifests in the way she challenges, stimulates and delights the children allowing them to evolve to their fullest potential. Elie provided our kids with an amazing pre-school education, plus a safe, warm, and loving environment that made them look forward to going to “school” each day. Our boys love Elie because they know that she loves them. She is more than just an educator – she is a part of our family.Philippa, Parent
Elie Niaki: a true blessing to the field of early childhood education. She is a professional, a nurturing, loving and dedicated teacher. A positive and creative soul in the classroom. I was blessed having had Elie be my child's teacher for three years. He absolutely adored her as did we.
I also had the privilege to work by Elie's side when we taught a split pre-k French class. She is a truly amazing teacher and partner. We wish her the best of luck in her new adventure. To the future parents, and children of Elie's daycare, I promise you will never be disappointed. Your child will definitely receive quality care and a quality educational program. Elie you are the best and we miss you so very much.Marisa Ferrelli and family Montreal, Parent and Teacher
