Love this family care! Recommend for under three years old and for after school program for older kids. I trust both teachers for they are smart, ethical, and nurturing. Kids have lots of fun and are fed nutritious food as well. So glad to have them in our neighborhood.

Our child was the 1st child at this daycare after it was opened. At first we were hesitant to place her here here there because it was brand new and we did not know what to expect. How happy we are to have made this decision! It has been a fantastic experience for your child and for us to see how Sophia, the childcare provider helps her grow and learn. We find it much better than having a private babysitter and definitely better than having an overcrowded commercially looking daycare facility. Our daughter gets undivided love and attention in a small group setting. A great amenity is that this daycare has its own private large park/garden at the back and convenient parking in front. The premises are kept spotless clean, the food that this provider gives children is organic and always freshly cooked from scratch, there are no pre-processed foods. This daycare services are also priced at great value. We did extensive research on all home based licensed daycares in Bayside and Aubundale. Some of them did not even include food in their prices and they and they had rigid rules about signing up for a year contract and had very small tiny rooms where children were kept, they were also worm out and dirty and charged extra per minute if for some reason you were picking up your child later. A great advantage for full time working parents is also the fact that it is open every day from 7 am to 7pm. I do recommend to all the parents who are looking for licensed daycare for children under 2 years of age to visit this daycare.
