My son has been taken care of by Luci from when he was around 1 1/2 years old up until recently at 3 years old. When I started looking around for childcare I know I wanted the comfort of having my son close by while I was at work. Although Luci's is located 20 minutes (minus commute time) away from my actual home I felt it was worth it to have him close to where I am for most of the week. This helped ease anxiety for me as well as finding that Luci is very warm and welcoming and is very caring towards my son as if he was her own. It took sometime for my son to adjust but Luci was very patient with this and many things (like my son's picky eating). I believe she takes special care not only with my son but with all the children. Even on days when my son wasn't able to attend for various reasons (i.e. out sick, etc.) Luci made it a point to check on how he was doing. When it came around time to potty train my son, Luci saw all the signs. She made the transition for all of us during the stages of potty training much easier. It took my son about 2 weeks to be fully potty trained and I owe a lot of credit to Luci and her helper. Unfortunately, I no longer take my son to Luci's because he has moved on to a slightly bigger preschool located closer to our home. We miss Luci and her children very much, but still manage to keep in touch. We love hearing how each other's families are doing. I would recommend Luci's daycare. Melanie
Luci's Family Daycare is probably the best daycare in the East Bay or perhaps the entire Bay Area! Luci and her helper Geane are wonderful caregivers who genuinely care for your child. She offers a fun and safe environment for the kids, is always looking for creative ways to engage the kids and is very supportive and flexible to meet your childcare needs. As a first time mom, I was anxious to send my baby girl to a daycare after resuming work. But seeing a broad smile on my baby's face at the time of drop off within the first few days of joining just washed away all my worries! We unfortunately had to sacrifice this wonderful option when we relocated away from the Marina Bay Richmond area. But we hope that many more parents will join this gem of a daycare and benefit like we did. We wish Luci and her family continued success in her endeavors!!

If any of you are looking for child care/preschool and have not checked out Luci's Family Daycare yet I highly recommend it. My daughter loves it there! Luci is wonderful! She treats my baby girl like she is her very own. Always very accommodating, caring, kind, loving and responsible...everything any parent would want in someone caring for your child.

Our little girl has been staying with Luci since she was six months old. As our first child it was a little bit of a rough transition, more so for me, than our little girl. After meeting Luci and seeing her interact with my daughter and my daughter's responses, I knew we had found someone we could trust. Luci has been sooo great over the past 7 months. When I drop our daughter off each day, she actually leans away from me and into Luci! I love receiving daily updates on how our daughter's day went. I can see that Luci loves seeing her grow as much as we do. You can really see the love Luci has for the children she provides care for. Genevieve learned to sit up and crawl at Luci's. Luci has lots of experience providing care for infants and toddlers. She also really listens to my wishes on care for our daughter (our transition from breast milk to formula to what she eats for lunch and when nap time is). Everything you want in someone who steps in for you during the day. Visit Luci and you'll see the level of care your child will receive. And what's great for me is I can quickly get off the freeway, drop her off and be on my way to work in San Rafael.

We love Luci! My son has been going to her daycare since he was 4 months old, and he is now 19 months. He loves Luci, and the other children and usually doesn't want to leave because he is having so much fun! She treats my son as if he was her own. My son is my only child and it was extremely difficult for me to leave him with a stanger, but once I met Luci and saw her with my son, I knew he would be in safe, loving hands. Of course I spoke with the other parents first and heard nothing but good things about Luci. She is also very flexible with her hours and days which is very helpful. I highly recommend Luci's Daycare and a bonus is that my son now understands Portuguese! Feel free to email or call Luci for any questions or email me : )

I greatly encourage anyone seeking full or part-time care for their infant and/or toddler to contact our prior provider Luciara Garcez who recently licensed her in-home care.

Luci cared for our 23 month-old daughter since she was 9 months old. Unfortunately we moved from the local area and had to resort to a daycare facility (almost regretfully). It's been a hard transition given the high level of care, love, and attention our daughter had with Luci. Our daughter was always so happy to arrive every day, and I knew no matter the situation my daughter was in the best of care.

Luci has great experience and a natural way with children regardless of age. She is very reliable, responsible, and willing to go the extra mile for a family. She was there for us to watch our daughter while we were expecting our second; we don't know what we would have done without her!!

For any mom out there that needs that extra help and support, Luci is the caregiver for you. If you'd like further details, feel free to email me. Maggie
