Laura and her family are very sweet and take good care of our little one who started at about 10 months. Nice, clean house with some outdoor space. 

I want to highly recommend Laura and Kiddie Korner Daycare.  She and her grand daughters, Rachel and Roberta, have done an excellent job with my son Gabriel.  He started when he was just under 5 months old and Laura is very understanding of how every baby is different.  She and her staff were very thoughtful and caring with Gabriel (and with my wife and I) during the transition to daycare.  Gabriel always seems happy when I pick him up and they always inform me about how his day went.  

We would continue to utilize Laura and her daycare for our son, but my wife and I have decided to relocate to Southern California.  Our spot will be available in late June 2016.  Again, I cannot express enough how much we appreciate Laura's professionalism and care of our son.  I highly recommend her services for your child!

Kiddie Korner is a small home/family-based daycare. My daughter (23 months) has been attending since she was 7 mo. She has done very well there and I have been very happy with the care they have given her.

Kiddie Korner has a great child to caregiver ratio. They typically take 4-5 children. When my daughter started they had 3 other infants. The main care takers are Laura (the owner) and her daughter, Roberta. In addition, Laura has 2 granddaughters (late teen/young adults) who often help out. Though we don't ask too often, they are also available to babysit, which is great because the children are already familiar with them.

Kiddie Korner has provided my daughter with loving care. As a result, she is very well socialized, well behaved and outgoing.

They currently have openings for at least a couple of infants/toddlers. In addition, my daughter will be leaving next month, due to a move. We will be very sad to leave.

Located very close to Highway 24 (MLK entrance). Hours are typically 8-5:30. They are very experienced, competent, and flexible (within reason).

You can contact Laura: 510-428-2953 (home) or 510-904-7205 (cell). Please feel free to call or email me as well if you'd like to know more about our experience.

My daughter (11 mos) has been attending Kiddie Korner, a home-based daycare for the past 4 months. She is doing really well there, and we are all very pleased and happy. There are currently 3 infants (under 2 yrs) enrolled and they are looking to fill a 4th spot, which recently opened. I highly recommend Kiddie Korner.

The owner, Laura, and her daughter, Roberta provide wonderful and loving care. They have a nice shaded outdoor space where the children spend a lot of time. Laura provides food and snacks when they are able to eat all solids. Both Laura and Roberta and very experienced, competent, and flexible. My daughter absolutely adores Roberta and gets along well with the other children. The daycare is located very close to Highway 24 (MLK entrance). Hours are 8am to 5:30pm. You can contact Laura at 510-428-2953. Please feel free to email me as well if you'd like to know more about our experience.

My son is moving from his daycare to preschool, and there will be a space for a full-time child at his daycare starting in January. Laura Valenzuela of Kiddie Korner daycare has cared for our son from the age of 3 months until 3 years, and has provided loving, caring, family-oriented care. I highly recommend her. Our son loves going to ''Nana's'' house, and has really thrived and learned so much from her over the years. We're sad to leave, but wanted to enroll our son in a larger preschool with more kids his age. Kiddie Korner is located near Ashby BART, easily accessible from Rockridge, Emeryville, Berkeley. You may contact Laura Valenzuela at 510-428-2953. Feel free to contact me, as well, to hear more about our experience - Lauren

Laura Valenzuela, owner and operator, is an experienced, enthusiastic and loving provider for our daughter. She and her daughter Roberta provide wonderful care. Our daughter started going to Kiddie Korner at age three months and simply loves Laura, Roberta and the other children. She gets plenty of attention and outdoor time as well. I highly recommend Kiddie Korner for your young child. Contact: Laura Valenzuela, 510-428-2953
