This daycare is by far the best fit for my family. As first-time parents we wanted a great family environment for our seven-month-old. Since we have had our little girl under Shawna's care, the experience has been wonderful. The children participate in learning activities and go to the park. Most importantly Shawna has exceeded my expectations by meeting my child's changing needs in the last few months Our daughter is now 14 months old and she gets daily trips to the park, the social interaction she needs an above all a really safe family environment. I have never had to deal with a bad diaper rash or a child that doesn't want to go to daycare ( it is typically the complete opposite and Addie throws herself to Shawna as soon as i walk in the door) Another great thing Shawna does is that she accepts children based on cohorts therefore allowing them to take on the same interests and participate in similar developmental activities. This also encourages the children to learn from each other. We would be happy to recommend Shawna to anyone interested in putting their child under her care. Ana S.
There is an opening at The Little Learning Cubby, which is just one block from North Berkeley BART. The owner, Shawna, provides a cozy environment and is well equipped to handle babies and infants. She also has three extremely polite daughters, who our son adores. When our son first met Shawna and her family it was on an open day. He was nine-months-old and was not comfortable with strangers. But as soon as Shawna picked him up, he seemed to have an instant rapport with her. Four months later, we are still grateful to have found a warm, family-based daycare for our boy.

If you are looking for wonderful childcare in N. Berkeley, you need to visit Little Learning Cubby Preschool/Daycare. Our two year old daughter is currently being cared for by Shawna , who runs Little Learning Cubby out of her immaculate home. When we found her, our only expectation was to find loving and attentive care for our daughter. Well, we certainly got that and so much more. Shawna also carefully plans many structured activities like: music and dance time, art projects involving shapes and colors (that often get sent home laminated:), taking nature/sensory walks to the park , conducting story time (teaching literary skills such as character identification, making predictions, etc.) going to the library, setting up tents on rainy days, making play dough, and she also orchestrates many other fun learning activities that she plays WITH the kids. She provides healthy meals and snacks, is open at 7 and is flexible with scheduling changes/needs. She also gives full daily reports upon pick-up. Shawna has been a mother of three and certainly understands early childhood development. She is patient and kind and we simply adore her! My daughter always looks forward to spending the day with Shawna and this alone speaks volumes. One extremely happy Little Learning Cubby Parent, Stacey
