About the Provider


As a Family Childcare Educator my goal is to provide a safe and happy environment for children, where they can learn and grow physically, intellectually and socially at their own pace. A weekly lesson plan is followed and healthy & balanced home maid meals are served daily. All the activities offered are to stimulate and promote the development of motor, language and social skills. I believe children learn through play and benefit from a structured but yet flexible environment.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Mrs. Paula is simply amazing! From the moment my daughter began with Paula, she was loved. Meeting Paula for the first time during our tour, I knew this provider was going to be different. You can see her love in her eyes, you can hear it when she speaks about each one of her daycare children, you can feel it from her sincerity in every action she takes. Paula never hesitates to answer all of my questions. We are always able to collaborate our ideas and do what's best for my daughter. Through every tantrum, hitting faze, constipation, sickness, and talks of surgery, nothing has made Paula shy away from being right there to care for my daughter when I need to be at work. We love Paula as we would any member of our family. I trust this woman with my daughter's life and her future. She is just absolutely amazing, to say the least!

I have nothing but good thing's to say about Ana Tavares. She is a wonderful day care provider. To read that someone is saying she is abusive is false. My kid was in her care at just 7 weeks old and is now almost 5. I have never had any issuses with abuse. She is a loving and caring person. She wouldn't put her hands on someone's child. Also, her daycare is immaculate. She is super clean!! Nothing but positive thing's to say about her.

My son has been with Ana Paula for 2 years, wonderful provider and person. Its very reassuring when you find someone who loves and cares for your child as well as she does. I really could go on and on about all the wonderful things she does for ALL of the kids in her care. :)

Ana Paula is both kind and caring. I couldn’t ask for a better child care provider. My daughter has been there for over 18 months and I have the utmost trust and confidence in Ana Paula. My daughter is excited each and every day to see her and the other children.

I am the owner

This is my response for the FALSE Abusive review...I am in this business for 15 years, and I am a mandate reporter of child abuse and and neglect and sadly sometimes I need to protect children against their own family members...I need to be their voice...and I take this very seriously...I have NEVER been accused of hitting any child...but sadly in 15 years of working in this business, I was obligated by sad circumstances to contact the authorities to protect children that was suffering of abuse and/or neglecting...and one way the abusers find to hurt me is to leave a FALSE NEGATIVE REVIEW...THAT IS THE REASON WHY THEY DON'T USE THEIR NAMES...And I welcome any parent to come into my business and talk to any of the many parents I have and had in the past...and you will see the reality of the work and love I put and dedicate to all the families I work with...And for the person that left the FALSE REVIEW OF ABUSE...GOD BLESS YOU...I truly hope you can find peace in your life...Thank you.

Anna Tavares is one of the worst Day cares I have ever been to. She was very abusive towards my daughter. She even left a bruise on my daughters cheek. PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR CHILD TO HER !!! . BEWARE BEWARE BEWARE !!!!!
