We've been at 1,2,3 Learn with Me in San Pablo, which is a daycare/preschool. They are wonderful. https://www.berkeleyparentsnetwork.org/recommend/preschool/123

I remember when we were searching for child care and touring different facilities I knew without a doubt that "THIS IS IT" at 123 Learn with Me.  Our daughter has been with Nonna Veli, Nonno Freddie, and Tia Karen for the past two years and it has been a privilege and a pleasure to work with them.  They are excellent at what they do and spend so much time and energy making sure that the environment and activities are as stimulating, safe, clean, and welcoming to the children as possible.  New toys, new furniture arrangements, activities, art, singing and dancing, interesting foods to try - they never stop moving.  They pay close and deep attention to each of the children in their care and took the time to discuss we me the new and interesting developments and conversations they had had with our daughter every day.  I loved that there was a range of ages for our girl to interact with - she learned compassion and gentleness with babies smaller than her and how to walk, talk, and play with the big kids.  Besides their excellent care of my daughter, I'm so grateful for their coaching of me as a new parent.  I often had fears or concerns about how to approach a new behavior or phase and they always had great advice based in child development psychology from Tia Karen's educational background.  Always gentle and compassionate, flexible yet firm, they provided me with a great model to reflect at home during meal time, potty training, and play time.  We'll be back for movie nights and when we have a second child I won't be sending them anywhere else!  

My Daughter has been attending 123 LWM for over 2 years now & we could not be more pleased. In our eyes they aren't just a daycare they are so much more , A family,  a school & safe place for the children to be themselves. Nona Veli , Nono Freddie & Tia Karen are exceptional at what they do , they invest in the growth of their school & are always changing things to keep it fresh and new. The 123 LWM family is awesome on so many levels they are always trying foods from different cultures , singing , dancing , doing Karate & Yoga amongst many other activities. One of our favorite things they offer is movie night 1 once a month; where the parents are able to leave kids Late while they offer a movie, art project & best of all they have the children In their jammies ready for bed , fed & all at pick up. 

We have been with 1,2,3 Learn w/ Me for 4 years! They are more than a daycare--they are a like a second family to us. They have treated my kids as their very own and we can tell that they love them with all of their hearts. Our eldest son started when he was 1 years old and when our 2nd son was born we did not hesitate to enroll our 6 month old. They have been there every step of the way guiding our children and they take time out to tell us about the social/emotional growth of our kids and work with us to help problem solve issues.

They are not stagnate--they are always upgrading and changing items out for their daycare. They serve healthy homemade food for the children and have taught our kids how to potty train, brush their teeth, manners, etc. They speak to my children in Spanish as requested and with their help my son is fluent in Spanish--speaking and understanding. The baby is still learning to talk but when he does--it will be Spanish!

They keep the day moving with a nice schedule of breakfast/lunch/snacks, naps, art projects, educational activities, free-play, structured games, songs and dance.

When we were having a second child, during the entire pregnancy they were they for us and helped my son understand and accept a new baby into the family.

In short, 1,2,3 Learn w/ Me is the best decision that we have made and we never worry when we leave our kids there for work! We thank them from the bottom of our hearts because they have shaped and nurtured our children into happy and respectful kids.

We are so lucky and forever grateful for being recommended 1, 2, 3 Learn With Me by our friends. Valeria, Karen and Freddy have created such a loving, engaging place for our son to grow. He is able to be immersed in Spanish language and they always have new and exciting activities that are instructive and inspiring for the kids. I also love that Karen, Valeria, and Freddy check in with us so often, send pictures and give us updates, and are so supportive of our son and our family. Echoing other families' reviews - Movie Night is so great to have, our son absolutely prefers their cooking, and he never wants to leave!

Hopefully I'll be able to write this review without crying but happy tears....
My 4year old has been at 1,2,3 learn with me , since march. 
As a single mother and a young adult trying to make it on her own, I was going through a hard transition period in my life, moving away from my support system to be closer to my career job. 
I previously had my daughter at a daycare where she had a really bad experience. After taking her out of that daycare and visiting others, I decided for her to settle here.
Within 30 days (maybe even sooner) I noticed a difference in my child. She seemed more happier and tantrums lessened. 
They are so attentive to the children's emotional and physical well beings. They have been supportive in a way that I'm more then grateful.
Of course the food is great but best of all my daughter learned to write her name!!

I first started taking my daughter here when she was 3 years old and now my daughter is almost 5! This is literally the best daycare that you can take your children to and my daughter seconds that! Because I was a stay at home with my daughter for all her life I was super nervous to leave her at a daycare. Karen and Valerie were aware of this and made the transition for my daughter super easy! It got to the point where my daughter didn't want to leave daycare when I came to pick her up! 

The daycare itself is super big! Super colorful and always safe. They have so many things to play with for kids of all age grounds. They have a large play area outside which is great! All the meals they serve are home made and cater to any specifics you child may need. Karen and Valerie are always happy to see you and your child and give you updates on how the day went with your child. They also do the most cutest works of art too! 

There is no other daycare I would feel comfortable leaving my child and will definately recommend to any parent to check this place out! Many thanks to Karen and Valerie!!! 

As a first time mom, I was a nervous wreck when it came to finding the right daycare for my 3 month old son.  A friend referred me to 1, 2, 3 Learn with Me and I couldn’t be happier! Valeria, Karen and Freddy treat my son like one of their own.  They’re caring, patient and always have fun and new activities for the kids.  I can check in in the middle of the day (again, nervous first-time mom) and know I will get a message back right away. 

In the 2 years my son has been with 1, 2, 3 he has learned so much! He’s constantly surprising me with new skills, songs, and games he’s learned throughout the day.  I love that they speak Spanish almost exclusively and I’m pretty sure my son likes their cooking more than mine. J

I can’t say enough about them. They’re absolutely amazing!

We feel so fortunate to have our Son (age 2) in this incredible Daycare. He has been there for a year and half and we see the positive impact on his development everyday. It is a warm, loving and rich environment for any child. The variety of activities both fun and educational seems endless, both indoor and outdoor, 123 Learn with Me are dedicated to every aspect of our Son's development. They are responsive and communicative at every turn. We also appreciate the diversity of age and background of each child that attends and know that our Son is developing great social skills as well as learning basic routines like eating well, napping and reading. 123 Learn with Me also provide a Bi-lingual environment (Spanish/English) but arguably the best thing of all is "Movie Night" which happens once a month and allows the Parents to pick him up late on a Friday after having a nice dinner or a well deserved break before the weekend! : ) 

I couldn't be happier with 123 Learn with Me Daycare - if you are fortunate enough to take advantage of an opening then I know you will feel as fortunate as we do.

As good as it gets!  I have 2 boys, now ages 8 and 3 who have had the absolute blessing of being able to attend 1,2,3 Learn w/ Me Daycare.  I knew as soon as I walked in the door for the initial visit that it would be a warm and loving environment for my boys.  The home is set-up like a daycare/school.  You can see it in every inch of the house that they are devoted to nurturing to children's minds and hears.  I am trying not to get teary eyed when I think of all of the milestones they have been there for and difficult times they have provided support to me and my boys.   

There is a family of 4 (3 adults) who run the daycare and provide services.  Classwork for the kiddies daily, outings and walks together, lots of arts and crafts (not just coloring pages and construction paper), movie nights, so the parents can have their own time, amazingly delicious and healthy home-cooked meals and cherry on top....They teach my boys Spanish!  If it sounds like I am happy with their service....You betcha!  My boys are loved, educated and I couldn't ask for a nicer family, they are definitely a blessing to us!   

.....Crème de la crème!

I would love to recommend 1,2,3 Learn with Me Daycare. When I was looking for a daycare for my 1 year old son, I felt lucky to find this place:

*Fluent in both English and Spanish; they are speaking and teaching my son Spanish.

*Healthy meals and snacks.

*Spacious home with a great backyard for the children.

*Loving mother-daughter team that have cared for my son like their own.

I had to leave the country for two-weeks and the daycare worked with my husband to make sure everything was running smoothly and provided extra support.I am posting here, because this is the first place I started my search. I feel fortunate to find a loving place at an affordable price. They are open M-F from 6am to 630pm.
