About

CURRENT OPENINGS: All ages!
Hello, I run a state licensed, pet free, smoke free and family friendly home daycare. The house is very convenient to reach since it is right on Lee Hwy. I have twelve years of experience in child care and have been running my own day care facility for the last two years. We are open from 7:30am to 6pm and care for children 6 weeks to 6 years of age. For the safety of the children the daycare is peanut free environment. The children in my care are provided healthy and nutritious meals including breakfast, morning snack, lunch and evening snack. The experienced and certified staff works hard to provide a safe, nurturing environment for the kids in our care. The staff is CPR/First Aid and MAT certified. Our focus is to maximize each child’s learning potential in all areas: cognitive, social, emotional and physical. The home has large areas for the children to actively engage in learning and playing. There are lots of toys for children of all ages to explore and learn. We incorporate fun activities including painting, arts and crafts, free play, music, reading books, educational projects, etc. Our focus is to give each child early head start in education therefore a parent gets a homecare facility with corporate daycare’s curriculum and experience.

We cannot express how grateful we are with this provider for taking such a good care of our daughter since she was only 5 months old. We were looking for a place with a homey feel, and this home daycare has gone above and beyond our expectations. After almost 2 years we can confirm that our little one feels at home when she is at the daycare, she is welcomed every morning with a huge smile and she runs inside as happy as she can be. This provider is like a second mom, she is very caring, loving and cheerful. Paying attention to every detail and very communicative too. She has the place immaculately clean. Lunches provided although are only vegetarian are very healthy and complete, giving also the option to parents to bring meat already cooked from home to be added to the dishes she prepares. Lots of art projects and good curriculum, kids are never bored. First impressions count a lot when looking for a place for your children, and it only took us a few minutes at this place to figure out this is exactly what we wanted for our baby. The only reason we have not given the facilities 5 stars is because it lacks a bit of outdoor space for older children. They still do have outdoor time every day weather permitting. Highly recommended for parents looking for a caring environment for babies/toddlers.

We heard nothing but good things about this daycare before our daughter started there, but our expectations were still far exceeded. Our little girl is always excited to go to daycare, and that’s the true test in our eyes!

I love the care that my son received at this daycare. My son has developed in many ways since he’s joined this early learning program. At the age of two, he knows his colors, days of the week, counts to 30, ABC’s and knows numerous nursery rhyme songs. The team is very efficient & courteous and the daycare is very clean. They work very hard and really care about all of the children. I highly recommend this early learning daycare.

If you are looking for a loving and attentive daycare, look no further. My son has been with this provider since he was about seven months. She is incredibly communicative with parents, caring, assertive, and pays attention to detail. She gives a detailed written report everyday, has a warm and loving environment with lots of toys, and provides the children with the special attention they deserve. She greets us each day with a smile and loves to share about neat things my son did during the day. She’s been very accommodating with our schedule and our routines. We couldn’t recommend her more.

My daughter started here just before her one year birthday. She absolutely loves it! She gets exited to head to school to see her teachers and friends of all ages. She has progressed developmentally due to this provider. Highly recommended. Willing to be contacted for any inquiries.

This provider and her assistants are wonderful with the children. Our son was with her when I went back to work and she cared for him as we would have. It was so nice to have someone we trusted caring for our son. She worked with us as we transitioned to solid foods. She is an excellent care giver and we would have kept our son with her if we hadn't had the opportunity to have him with our older ones.

My husband & I had moved twice in a little over a year. We had gotten so close with our former day care employees that we were apprehensive when changing our son's routine. Liam warmed up to the providers upon their first meeting. With just the perfect amount of structure and play time, he has learned and has grown so much. His vocabulary, letter & number recall has tripled, and he receives wonderful meals & snacks. My picky eater has tried and loved so many wonderful, fresh foods! We couldn't be more thrilled! Every day we get a report on naps, food, activities, and more as they keep moms & dads up to date on all activities. Finding this in home daycare on CareLuLu was a true blessing. We are so grateful to everyone here for their love, caring, giggles, & cuddles. I would highly recommend to those in the search for a day care that is safe & personable. I would gladly speak to any parent considering this home facility for their little love. You will not be disappointed.

My daughter started going to this day care since she was 9 months old and she loves it. It provides a warm and friendly environment. Ms. S follows strict county rules. She makes kids do weekly projects, has daily circle time and takes good care of kids. She is very prompt in sending daily updates to parents. I like when she sends photos and videos of some of my daughter's beautiful moments. I would definitely recommend this day care to anyone who is looking for a clean, good and professional one.

I would recommend this daycare to anyone! My super shy 2 year old son was a tough customer. He would cry when we would leave him with anyone! When it was time to start daycare, we wanted to ensure that he was in a smaller, more personalized environment so he could get the attention he needed while making the transition into full time child care. The provider took the time to meet my son where he was at. She taught him his ABCs and 123s, but also taught him to read and write before he was 3 years old because he had shown interest in doing so. My son also had pretty bad separation anxiety, and the provider was always patient with him, teaching him different ways to conquer his sadness and that I would always return for him. When I left him under her care I was never worried that he would be treated well, and I would get a full report and pictures of his daily activities via both Whatsapp throughout the day and upon pick up. Every week my son had a themed art project that he was super proud of! He grew to love the provider and to look forward to his days with her. I can't speak more highly of this daycare! She is an awesome childcare provider and I hope you find her as rewarding as I have!

My baby has been at this daycare for 10 months, since he was 4 months old. This home daycare provides a warm and friendly environment for all the kids. The provider not only reads to my baby, teaches him sign language, and works on art projects, she also teaches all kids good behavior. She strictly follows County rules and regulations, and keeps me informed about my son's daily activities. We are very happy with this home daycare.
