To all Parents: I would highly recommend Fun Time Daycare(510)860-8543 to all parents. Here isa bit of my experience with Gissell, the care giver and her crew. We feel blessed to have found such a wonderful person to be a part of our daughter's lives. Mrs. Justo has nothing but the best interests for the children in her care. We find the environment she presents to be enriching to their development and beneficial to their wellbeing. I cannot say with enough emphasis how highly I recommend FunTime Family Daycare to anyone lucky enough to find a place in her home. We are glad that she has accepted our child as part of her family and hope to continue this relationship for a long time to come. Roxana
I would like to recommend my wonderful daycare provider in El Cerrito. Fun Time Daycare is a great, family-run daycare led by Gisell Justo. I've been sending my daughter there for about 15 months, and she loves it -- she's never cried once at drop-off (sort of amazing, I think). Gisell and her long-time assistant, Lola, are loving and warm and really enthusiastic about the kids (infants - about 3 year olds). Gisell's mom is also a regular presence, and all the babies love Abuelita! It really is a warm, nurturing family atmosphere. I have found Gisell to be extremely flexible and understanding with scheduling issues -- much more so then other daycare providers I've come across. The atmosphere is cheerful and super kid-friendly, unlike many other home daycares I visited in my original search...There's a cute, sunny play yard for the kids with sturdy play structures and they spend lots of time outdoors (no TV ever!). There's also music, singing, reading and art activities. Although Gisell is bilingual, they mostly speak to the kids in Spanish, which is wonderful (one of my daughter's first words was ''agua!'') I just can't say enough good things about Fun Time! - Becky
My little boy had a wonderful time at Fun time from age 3 mos to about 1.5 yr. I truly felt like he was being cared for by family. Gisell and her helpers are awesome. They play indoors and out, sing, dance, read, and my son's favorite part - eat! Call Gisell (the owner), or email me for more detailed rec. - Liz
