I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I have used Letecia's day care for the past 8 years. My children were well taken care of and beyond prepared for Kindergarten. She provides individual attention and followed Pre-K curriculums to ensure they were adequately prepared. She followed any special accommodations that I had with out question. I frequently received text and picture message updates - Which I appreciated. My children regulary completed art projects which they loved and would welcome ideas for future projects. My children participated in field trips and welcomed parent participation. Letecia and her family have always been very warm and welcoming.... Like extended family. Both my children love her - I know when they are in her care they are WELL taken care of and safe. In would whole heartedly recommend her day care.

Miss Leticia is a great child care provider. I had a 4 month old baby and I had to return to work. Miss Leticia made me feel at ease leaving my child. She welcomed my phone calls during the day to check on my child. When I had my second child I knew I wanted both kids to go to Miss Leticia. She prepared both of my children for Kindergarten. She is safe, reliable, comforting and a wonderful child care provider. Your child will be in great care with Miss Leticia. I would never go any place else.

I know The Shell daycare well. I had my son there. Mrs. Leticia is the best. My son was well taken care of. He was ready for Kindergarten when he turned 5. He knew his colors, letters and shapes. I recommend this daycare to anyone. The kids get balanced meals. If your looking for a daycare, Mrs. Leticia is the place.

My eldest daughter was very shy with folks, but took to Mrs. Leticia like nothing I have ever seen. Since then, both of my daughters had tremendous experiences with her wonderful daycare. Many field trips to various activities, along with making new friends along the way! In our busy lifestyle, as a parent, it does my heart good knowing I can count on people like Mrs. Leticia. The care and love she showed our children will not be forgotten. She is firm but fair. Taught our girls many life lessons they instill to this day. She provided an excellent learning environment, proper meals and a joyful place for our children to grow while mom and dad were at work. Thank you Mrs. Leticia, We love you!

I am the mother of Christopher Caggiano's twin daughters. His above ratings/allegations are totally and completely false. Christopher and I were in a custody battle that lasted almost 4 years. After harassing Leticia, she requested we no longer do exchanges there. At no point was he ever threatened by her husband. Period.
What I can tell you is my children (who were at her school for 4 plus years) went to Kindergarden more than amply prepared. Both of the twins received academic achievement awards thanks to Leticia's dedication and preparation. Her care exceeds that of any preschool I know in Bakersfield. My children were never picked up wet, hungry or messy. She would even take extra steps, such as helping me with their hair and loaning me diapers when I just needed a little help. She never, ever had to do that, but her compassionate spirit is one that wouldn't allow it any other way. Chris was told to stay away after his irrational behavior. No other reason. I am the one who picked my kids up daily and have no complaints. The children still attended there after summer and continued to thrive under her instruction and love-another reason Chris' allegations are absolutely ridiculous and unfounded. Please do not take his rating seriously, because it is not coming from a place of concern-just retaliation of a sore loser who could not get out of paying adequate child support. My e-mail address is listed. If you have any questions please contact me directly. I hate that someone is taking this out on Leticia-she did a lot for me and my twins. We would not be the same without her.

No communication. Husband threatened me. Now they are saying I cannot go there even though my daughters still attend. Does not make any sense. Stay away from this center.
