Eden Child Care currently has two openings for infants and/or toddlers ages 3 month old to 5 years old. Eden Child Care has been a wonderful second home to my son since he started there when he was 4.5 months (he is now 17 months!). My husband and I wanted our son in an intimate space that felt like home (versus an institution). I was searching for an intangible--an instinct, a feeling about caregiver and the home our son would come to know that said 'this is the place'. I brought my mom along with me to visit Mrs. Kim. As soon soon as we walked in, we smiled at each other. Mrs. Kim's home is not fancy or stocked with In the morning, the living room is washed in sunlight and lined with the sweetest potted orchids, which makes for an awesome start to the day. (The Two Feet & Under Gang start their day with pot banging and healthy snacks in there.) Since starting there, our son's Korean language skills have shot through the roof. (We requested that she speak to him in Korean as much as possible.) What impressed me was seeing the other children repeating Korean words whenever Mrs. Kim spoke to them!

My husband and I love Eden Child Care and would recommend Mrs. Kim's care for any parent looking for a (first or new) safe, trusted home care center with reasonable rates!

Eden Day Care Home will have 1 opening in a month for a child under 2. My daughter will be starting preschool in sometime towards the beginning of December and will no longer be going to the the day care. She is now in attendance and loves it there. All of the parents with children at Eden Day Care Home can give Hee Sook Kim, the primary caretaker, a great recommendation. Hee Sook Kim is a former elementary school teacher in Korea. She is an amazing daycare provider and are also bilingual (Korean and English). Mrs. Kim's hours are reasonably flexible and it is also very affordable as compared to some of the places that I have looked at. They are loving and provide fun filled activities throughout the day and delicious home cooked meals and healthy snacks. You can see that Mrs. Kim is passionate about what she does and has a genuine love for children. As a working parent I was blessed to have found a wonderful place for my daughter. I highly recommend Eden Day Care Home.

Re: Full-time, playbased, preschool near Glenview
We just started our 2 year old son at a day care/ play based family child care home in Oakland; near Glenview on 21st Ave at E 29th. [2935 21st Ave.] It is called Eden Child Care Home and is run by Mrs. Kim and her husband, a retired Korean Methodist minister. We are only into week 2 but so far, so good... not fancy but safe and fun for our little guy, who is starting full time this week. Check it our for yourself-- I would love to hear your impressions as well. Their number is 510-533-3922. It is affordable, they serve mostly organic food, and have flexible hours. I would say it is about 7 blocks from Park& Beaumont intersection ( I am not sure about what part of Glenview you live in.... ) I looked at other preschools near Glenview but they were mostly just far too expensive for me, or strict in regards to hours..... Anyway, i hope this is helpful to you... Elena
