My child was under Yanira's care for about a year. She had two helpers who I loved and who primarily took care of the children. All of a sudden, the workers disappeared, and Yanira and her friend began the care of the children. Unfortunately Yanira had some personal things going on in her life where she had to put a restraining order against someone coming to her house and threatening her. I finally decided to pull my child out of her care because I was afraid for my child's safety at this house. I have not received my deposit back from her, either, even though I gave proper notice. She also would not give me her EIN number for me to report the amount paid to her for my taxes, and I ended up having to file a paper return with an amendment stating why I did not have the EIN number. She is a great lady, but I feel obligated to warn other potential parents about this. Mi hijo asistio a la guardia de Yanira durante casi un ano. Le encantaron las asistentes de la guardaria, la buena comida, y estuvo muy contento. Pero, de repente, las asistentes desaparecerieron, y habian cosas en la vida personal de Yanira donde tenia miedo que algo le pasara en la guardaria (ella cambio las cerraduras de la puerta, etc.). Decide sacarle de la guardaria. Yanira todavia no me ha dado mi deposito, y no me daria su numero de EIN para mis impuestos, lo que me hizo muy dificil la entrega de los impuestos.

We have absolutely loved this daycare. Both of my children started here when they were 12 weeks old. This provider takes wonderful care of our children. They have both thrived here and I loved how they would learn Spanish words as well. I am so happy we found this daycare!

Warm and loving environment with teachers who treat your children like their own. My daughter loved her time here! My husband and I felt confident in the care provided and the Spanish my daughter learned was a welcome bonus!

We absolutely love this daycare. My daughter started going there when she turned 1. We could not be happier with the way the staff looks after children, their educational program their emphasis on having a well-balanced day, which includes a walk in the park, arts and crafts, circle time and of course, healthy home-made meal! Leila learned so many things, like letters and numbers well ahead of her peers. The group is small and each child gets a fair amount of attention. I would recommend this daycare with all my heart. You could not make a better choice, if you are looking for a licensed, medium-size daycare with good academic program and affordable price.

I bless the day my wife and I first came to this daycare. Trusting a caregiver is a hard decision, but we were rewarded for choosing her with a bond that lasts to this day. I recommend this family daycare wholeheartedly.
