Linda and her team take wonderful care of the kids and provide healthy snacks/lunch. They have openings for ages 2 and above. If you're interested in learning more, you can call Linda at 510-891-9409. Lisa
I had to take a moment to share how amazing the owner and teachers are at Casa De Los Ninos. Linda, the owner, has created a warm, nurturing environment. My 20 month old son continues to surprise me with everything he learns each day at day care. The teachers are wonderful and it is so clear how much love they have for our children. There is a range of ages and every child is given the what they need to learn and grow!!! Holly
Casa de los Ninos is a wonderful family daycare in the Lake Merritt/Grand Lake area. My 16 month old daughter has been there for 8 months and we are beyond pleased with the care. The owner Linda Lucero and her team are extremely caring, attentive and devoted. They have been in business for over 17 years. They provide both play and structured circle time in Spanish and English. There are educational activities, art projects and outdoor play. My daughter has thrived in this environment and learns something new every day! The children love Linda and you can tell she feels the same way about them. A few families have recently left (children off to preschool!) so Linda has openings! Contact her for more information lindasninos [at] comcast.net. Thanks! Lisa
Casa de los Ninos is a great family day care in the Grand Lake area. My two sons both went here, my older son started when he was 2 and stayed for 1.5 years. My younger son went for a couple months when he was 7 months until we moved out of the area. I highly recommend it as a safe and happy place for the kids.
Linda and her team are very devoted, conscientious, caring, and organized. They do a great job taking care of the kids providing both lots of play time and structured circle time and lesson time. My older son loved learning his letters at school and they really emphasize learning with the older toddlers. He also learned to be very polite saying please, thank you, and excuse me. When we had rough times with behavior problems Linda provides great advice and understanding.
I believe Linda has openings for both infants and toddlers right now, so definitely get in touch with her. Also feel free to contact me as a reference. ellis
Casa de los Ninos is a educational and comforting environment for kids located between the Grand/Lake and Oakland Kaiser areas. Linda currently has openings for both full time and part time, and for both infants and toddlers. My son is 2.5 years old and we have had nothing but good experiences with Linda and her assistants. They come up with lots of educational activities and provide snacks and lunch to the kids. Please call or email Linda if you are looking for child care for any age.

Their program is focused on learning alphabet, writing letters and improving other cognitive skills - such as socilizing, crafting. It is a very nice daycare and preschool designed to keep occupied your children the entire time. From little bit of free play, circle time, learning ''little'' Spanish,playing outside and slowing down at the end of the day. The school provides snacks (not garbage food), but you can bring your own if you want. Linda, the manager and teacher, is very fun and warm-hearted person. Kids love her and she loves what she does as well. Please if you're interested contact her on the number included and come check it out.
Hello everyone, I would like to recommend a great daycare and preschool at Adams Point of Oakland. This daycare has a good program for the entire day. Limited free play, circle time, English & Spanish learning, play outside, snacks and lunch included. Additionally, this place is very clean, sanitized, organized with many toys, learning tools, books, and very safe. The manager, Linda Hernandez, is very warm and cheery person as should be working in daycare. She is also very responsible and takes her job very seriously. Kids love her. You can contact her on the number listed, or come check it out.
I would like to recommend Casa de los Ninos, a family day care. My daughter started Casa when she was just 4 months old. She attended full-time until she was 2 1/2. I can't say enough good things about the staff, Linda and Coco. My daughter loved them, and still asks about them. I use their services on a drop in basis when my daughter's school is closed. They truly love their kids, and fill their day with songs, crafts, and outside time. They are located near Lake Merritt.
Casa de los Ninos in North Oakland has openings. We've had a great experience while our son has been there. The batch of 1 1/2 - 3 year olds that are currently attending are so smart and creative, and the parents are wonderful. My son tells me how much he loves teachers Linda, Coco, and his friends all the time. Contact: Linda Hernandez, 510-891-9409
Hi, Casa de los Ninos has an opening for a 2-5 year old. This is a bilingual home- based daycare and preschool. My daughter has been in the program for nearly a year and is doing great. The caregivers are wonderful with the kids and are attentive to their individual needs. I'd recommend this daycare for anyone whose child needs a homey environment and a smaller program to start. Linda is an avid teacher and the children who stay with her until they are 5 often know how to read when they leave. Contact: Linda Hernandez, 510-891-9409
Casa De Los Ninos run by Linda Hernanadez, is a wonderful daycare! My son attended the daycare for a year, and began working on his writing skills, while equally further developing his social skills. Linda and her assistant, Ms. Coco, consistently provide the children under their care with lots of warmth and love, and as a result, I feel as if all of the children there benefit from such care. I recently asked my son what he missed most about Casa De Los Ninos, and he replied, ''My friends, and Linda's big hugs!'' Chris
The children at Casa de Los Ninos watch television on a daily basis. The activities for the day end at approximately 3:30 and the rest of the day is spent watching videos such as Winnie the Pooh, Sesame Street, Dora, Diego, etc. I have requested less TV time, but I have been told that the instructors are too tired at the end of the day to design a more interactive curriculum. The cost for the school is $900/month full time. -Parent
I Recommend Casa De Los Ninos (Lake Merritt). Our son is one yrs. old and has been going to Linda's Casa De Los Ninos for the past four months - and he is really thriving. He was enrolled in a different place before and the positive differences we see in him now is just amazing- I mean he's smiling when we get there every morning! Linda loves children, and also has her degree in Child Development, is CPR certified and employs two assistants. They provide meals, circle time (song and dance), story time, there is a modest outdoor area for play, and they teach the tots Spanish. Casa is a licensed daycare run out of Linda's basement. Her prices are very reasonable and I know for sure that she has a few openings for toddlers, ages two to four. Full time care is about 200.00 per week. Part time is 45.00 per day. my husband and I are very happy with the care her establishment has provided our son. Contact: Linda Hernandez, 510-891-9409
I highly recommend CasadeLosNinos for anyone wants to have a peace of mind while away from their child. My son has stopped going there from 17-24 months because of his new sibling. Before there, we had him at a very expensive state of the art daycare from 11-17months. It had all the frills: 3:1 caring ratio, music, art tv. Because of these things, we thought this was the best. However, my son cried everyday for 5months. The staff try to insist it was just a phase, but my husband and I thought this was too long. So we started our search of every daycare in Oakland. A month later we went with Casa de Los Ninos. It took my son three days to adjust after his first day and he practically never cried since then. Linda, the day care provider, is a very kind and nurturing woman and she has a very small daycare with a great assistant. There's a small care giver ratio and the other kids have been there for a very long time. So don't let the frilly things get you, but pay attention to your intuition and your child's intuition. I truly believe Casa de Los Ninos will give you a peace of mind! Contact: Linda Hernandez, 510-891-9409
Does anyone have a recommendation for a good family daycare that opens at 6:00 or 6:30 am, preferably in Oakland, but it could also be in Berkeley if it's within easy access to the freeway. I've looked at Bananas' referrals and haven't found anything acceptable, so I'm wondering if maybe someone knows of a place that may have a 7:00 am official opening time but the caregiver is flexible.

I can highly recommend Casa De Los Ninos run by Linda Hernandez. My son went there for two years and we were very happy with her. She can be reached at 891-9409 and is currently located in the Lake Merrit Area of Oakland--very accessible to freeways. Naomi
