Maria runs Luceitas Daycare and is a kind, gentle person who cares so much about her work. My daughter is 2.5 and is leaving Maria's for preschool. There are other openings because several other kids (3.5 year olds) are also leaving for preschool.

I dropped my daughter off every morning for almost two years knowing that she would be safe, cared for, fed healthy food (soup, fruits and vegetables, yogurt, etc), and would get exercise and get to play with wonderful friends. They walk to a nearby park every day, and the caregivers really engage with the kids both at the park and in the house. They do a lot of songs, music, and games.

Maria and her helpers speak Spanish exclusively with the kids, and my daughter has learned a lot of Spanish words and songs there, even though we don't speak it with her at home.

Being a working parent can be hard, but I truly felt good about leaving my daughter in such a nurturing environment that felt like a second home to her. We will miss Maria so much and I hope that a new family can take our place and get a lot out of the daycare, too.
