Our son has been at Bee Happy since he was 4 months old. He's almost 2. It has been a huge relief having someone we could depend on like Brenda. He is in such a good environment with such great kids. He was the youngest baby when we first enrolled him, and it was benefited him hugely. He absorbs so much from the older kids and has learned to be patient/careful with the younger kids. The dynamic between all the kids is just fantastic. Brenda's an excellent teacher; my son speaks a lot of English despite his age AND knows a lot of Spanish. It's fantastic to see. Brenda also babysits Artie sometimes on weekends, and if she's busy, her mom will babysit him. Brenda's also helped us out in cases of emergency. I honestly consider her to be an important part of our family!

Not sure if our daycare is going to have openings but I figure it can’t hurt for you to reach out. It’s called Bee Happy Family Daycare. It’s on Harrison Street near 29th Street  I found it through BPN and my son has been attending for 5 months now and he loves it. 

When my husband and I first met Brenda, we were immediately struck by how thoughtful and passionate she was about child care.  We had been interviewing other day cares and left Brenda's knowing this was the right spot for us!  We have loved having Brenda care for our daughter and would move Brenda with us to our new city if we could!  Brenda provides a an environment that is welcoming, nurturing, and stimulates our daughter's intellectual curiosity.  It was also immediately clear that she deeply cares for our daughter as an individual.  We can't recommend Brenda enough and are very sad to be moving away from her daycare!!
