Please check out Bouchra's Daycare across from the El Cerrito Plaza BART station. My daughter went to Bouchra's Daycare 10 years ago and we still consider them to be family. My daughter loved them, and we all felt very loved and supported in her care. She cooks fresh, healthy food for the kids and loves them like her own. You can find her contact information on the BPN archives and some reviews of her daycare. Good Luck!
My son has been at Bouchra’s Daycare for the last 12 months, since starting there at 2 months old. My husband and I feel so blessed to have found Bouchra, as she creates such a wonderful, loving environment for her small group of children. (Bouchra takes care of young children, and normally has 3 or 4 children in her care.) Based on other BPN reviews and our first visit, we were instantly comfortable and knew that this would be a wonderful place for our son to grow and thrive. During the past year, all of our initial impressions were confirmed, as we watched our son grow into a loving toddler who is so happy to see Bouchra, her husband, and the other children.
Bouchra’s daycare space has everything a baby or toddler could want. The lighting is wonderful and there is a great array of toys and books. Bouchra serves the kids a wide variety of tasty, healthy foods and the great smells in her kitchen often make me wish I was staying for lunch. Additionally, Bouchra’s house is just a two minute walk from the El Cerrito Plaza BART station, which is a wonderful convenience for many families.
Bouchra is very supportive of the families in her care, and is extremely communicative. I wholeheartedly recommend her daycare.
We absolutely loved Bouchra's Daycare. http://www.bouchracare.com/
My daughter has been in pre-school for almost a year now, but she still talks about Bouchra (and "Baba" Najib) all the time. They are very special people-- so much nurturing and unconditional love for babies, toddlers, kids. Very organized, professional, consistent, and convenient too. She's a block from the Plaza BART station.
I highly recommend BB's Daycare! Bouchra is the most loving, nurturing, wonderful provider. Even after my daughter started school, she always asked to go back there for daycare instead of summer camps. BB's is a home-based daycare, one block from the El Cerrito Plaza BART station. I would trust her with my infant any day.
Please call Bouchra at 510-541-9239.
Our daughter was 4 months old when she started attending Bouchra’s Daycare. Initially I was nervous to leave my baby with someone other than family, but that fear quickly disappeared. Bouchra is absolutely wonderful with my daughter. Bouchra and her husband Najib treat my daughter and the other children like they would their own, they are very loving and caring and attentive to their needs. Bouchra is also great at communicating about my daughter’s day. The daycare has a wonderful play space in the backyard. The entire 1st floor of the house is the daycare, while they live upstairs. There is a spacious living room with age appropriate toys and lots of books. The dining area has high chairs and a cute little table for the older kids for eating and coloring. We are very, very fortunate to have gotten an opening at Bouchra’s Daycare and highly recommend it. Added bonus – it’s walking distance from the El Cerrito Plaza BART station.

Re: Recommendations for in home daycare near El Cerrito
Call Bouchra Benlamine (Phone: (510) 541-9239, Email: bbenlamine [at] yahoo.com). Our daughter was with her from 11 months to 2 years, and happily goes back for drop-in care when preschool is closed. Here's what I wrote last August: I highly recommend my daughter's day care provider, Bouchra Benlamine. She takes care of no more than 4 children at a time. She is located one block from El Cerrito Plaza BART. Our 18 month old daughter has been with her since February, and absolutely loves her. She prepares nutritious food, engages the babies and kids with stories and songs, and encourages development. Bouchra got our daughter to drop the bottle within a few weeks of starting there, and I just watched her help an 18 month old potty train (he was interested due to an older brother- -hoping our girl follows in his footsteps!). Bouchra's hours are 7:30-5:30, and her rates are very reasonable. Happy Mom

I'd like to recommend a wonderful home based daycare to the BPN community, Bouchra's Daycare in El Cerrito. Bouchra is amazing with children, caring, organized, kind, very engaged, and a fantastic chef. My 17 month old son has been with Bouchra since January and he loves Bouchra and her husband Najib, and his daycare friends. She has an opening in her small (4 children under 2) daycare starting in July.
I highly recommend Bouchra Benlamine's daycare. This is a small home daycare, with an opening in May and another in July, for children ages 0-3. She is conveniently located by El Cerrito Plaza BART, and her hours are 7:30-5:30. Her telephone number is 510-541-9239. We moved our now 14 month old daughter to Bouchra's care after an issue arose at our prior daycare. We couldn't be more pleased with the care and attention she receives, and our daughter is always happy to be there. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
I would like to recommend a fantastic Daycare Provider, Bouchra Benlamine. Both my children attended her daycare and absolutely love her. Bouchra provides a loving, nurturing environment for the children. She cooks great meals and provides a range of age-appropriate activities. She also does an outstanding job of communicating with parents about their child's day. I remember when my younger daughter was a toddler at Bouchra's, she would come home singing songs from Circle Time and happily talking about her friends. Bouchra is also great with babies- she is supportive of your parenting choices and dietary needs. Choosing a daycare is a big decision, it's wonderful to find someone you can trust to take good care of your child. I feel Bouchra helped both my daughters to become happy, confident and respectful people. She is located in El Cerrito and is open from 8:00-5:30 daily. I highly suggest you call for a visit. Feel free to email me with questions, or contact Bouchra directly at: 510-541-9239 or bb_daycare [at] sbcglobal.net
Hello Parents, I offer my highest recommendation for BB Daycare in Richmond near El Cerrito. They offer lots of FUN in a clean and safe, home based, family daycare with large indoor and outdoor play areas and separate sleeping room. Meals provided include breakfast, lunch and two snacks. BB Daycare is currently enrolling children ages 3 months to 3 years. Both of my sons were cared for at BB and the youngest one is wrapping up his time there and starting preschool soon. I am so grateful to have found BB during my transition back to full time work, as I could not have asked for a more perfect situation. Bouchra and her husband do activities including play dough, circle time, songs, puzzles, painting, and cooking and also work on manners and social skills. If you are looking for a warm, nurturing, and all around fabulous daycare, contact BB today.

BB's Daycare is a wonderful daycare for infants and toddlers. It is run by Bouchra Benlamine in her home. Both my children have attended there, and have benefited from the nurturing and loving environment offered. Another reason I chose this daycare is because while it has the comfort of a home-based daycare, it also offers a much larger indoor and outdoor space for the children than any other home-based daycares I found. My two-year old is so excited when I tell her it's a day to go to Bouchra's. She comes home singing songs from circle time and telling me about her friends. Bouchra is also amazing with babies- she is supportive of your parenting choices and dietary needs. She cooks wonderful food for the kids each day, and is always happy to tell you about your child's day. Bouchra is originally from Morocco and speaks English, French and Arabic. Bouchra and her family are like extended family to us- we trust her inherently and can depend on her to take care of our children. You can contact me for more information- see email below, or call Bouchra directly for a visit. Her number is: 510-541-9239.
If you are seeking a friendly, nurturing, fun, safe and wonderful family day care for your child, BB Daycare may be just the right place for you. My younger son is there now and my older son went to BB for 3 1/2 years. They currently have openings for babies and toddlers. They have a large, clean space with lots of toys and also have separate eating and sleeping rooms. There is a great backyard with lots of play equipment and a jungle gym. They provide breakfast, lunch and two snacks. Bouchra and her husband are very sweet with the children and will work with the parents on potty training, discipline, and any other needs the children have. My family and I have found BB Daycare to be an invaluable solution to our childcare needs. - Victoria Contact: Bouchra Benlamine, 510-260-0150

I write to recommend BB Day Care to anyone looking for a wonderful, comfortable home-based daycare for their child. My 15 month old son is there now and my older son just “graduated” to preschool last Fall. The owners, Bouchra and her husband Najib, demonstrate loving care for the children. Some of the great features are the large play areas (indoor and outdoor), separate nap area, and home cooked meals including breakfast, lunch and two snacks. They do lots of special things like birthday parties, have the children do art work, and learn their numbers and letters. They also take pictures of the kids to put up around the day care and to give to the parents so we can see them having fun while we are at work missing them. Their care for the children is also evident when they call to check on my son if he has to stay home sick or if we are late in the morning. BB Day Care is open from 7:30am to 5:30pm and has full time openings for ages 2 and up. License #073405112 You can contact them at (510) 260-0150.

Our daughter's wonderful Large Family Daycare, BB's Daycare, currently has openings for children aged 2 years and up. My daughter has attended for almost 2 years, and we couldn't be happier with the care she receives. They are a husband and wife team, who are extremely committed to creating a loving and nurturing environment for all the children. They have large indoor and outdoor areas for play- much more spacious than other home-based daycares I considered for my daughter. They cook wonderful meals for the children and provide a range of age-appropriate activities. They also do a fantastic job of communicating with parents about their child's day- from what they ate, to their activities, or what may have been a challenge for your child that day. It's wonderful to be able to place such trust in others to take good care of your child and to know that they truly care for him or her. I highly suggest you call and plan a visit there- you will find happy children who are encouraged to grow and learn each day. Feel free to call me or call Bouchra directly at 965-0953.
I would like to recommend BB Day Care. My three year old son has been cared for by the owners Bouchra and her husband Najib since he was a baby. He enjoys the large play areas (indoor and outdoor), the separate nap area, and Bouchra's home cooked meals. I like the low caregiver to child ratio and the care and love that are given to my child. They do lots of special things like arrange birthday parties, have the children do art work, and learn their numbers and letters. They also take pictures of the kids to put up around the day care and to give to the parents. When my son was a baby and it was hard to leave him at daycare, it really helped having the pictures of him enjoying himself during the day. Bouchra"s care for the children is also evident when she calls to check on my son if he has to stay home sick or if we are late. BB Day Care is open from 7:30am to 5:30pm and has full time openings for ages 2 and up. You can contact them at 510- 965-0953 or 510-541-9239. You can also email me if you'd like more information.

I would like to recommend BB's Daycare. My daughter has been at BB's since September 2005 and has thrived there. Bouchra and Najib provide a loving, nurturing, fun and healthy atmosphere for the kids. Often, on weekends, my daughter will ask to go there and will be disappointed when told that she has to wait until Monday. The other families who use BB's daycare are connected, loving and communicative too. BB's has a homey feel, and they work very hard to nourish and encourage each child's distinct personality. We're sad to have to leave, but we're on to preschool... A fan of BB's Daycare!! Contact: Bouchra, 510-965-0953
