My son has been going to Mother's Touch Daycare for about six months now (since he was four months old), and we have been very happy to have him there. Sharon's decades of experience show in her attentive and gentle manner, and the way she works closely with parents to understand each child and provide the care they need. Communicating with her is easy. Working with her daughter Amber, Sharon provides a very low child-adult ratio, which is especially great on days when our son has been teething and just needs to be held. Her home is warm and inviting, and full of age-appropriate toys - there is also a nice front yard play area that the children play in most days. Though my son doesn't talk yet, I can tell he feels comfortable each morning when we arrive - he relaxes and immediately starts playing. I visited a lot of home daycares in the area, and felt immediately comfortable with Sharon. I continue to be grateful that she's able to care for our son. Alexis

Our son has been going to Mother's Touch Daycare for a little over a year now. We have only had great experiences with Sharon and her daughter Amber. Our son is always so happy to see her when I drop him off in the morning and I have to pry him away when picking him up! The ratio is hard to beat, I've never seen more than 5 kids. Also, there is very slow turnover, most kids seem to stay until preschool, so our son has been able to form relationships with the other kids. There are a lot of age appropriate toys and a well maintained playground in the front yard, where they spend a lot of time on nice days. Sharon is always calm and has an intuitive sense for engaging kids of all ages. It's clear that she has spent a lot of time with children and she genuinely loves spending time with the children she cares for.
Our daughter attended full time daycare at Mother's Touch Daycare from 8 months until almost 3 years of age. She absolutely loved it. Sharon Langskov, the owner, truly cares about the kids at her daycare. She exudes warmth and creates a very calm, safe and nurturing environment for the children. There are lots of age-appropriate toys and activities for the kids, and if the weather is nice, the kids are usually running around in the playground area that she set up in the front yard. Her daughter, Amber, also works as a caregiver. The low child to caregiver ratio at Sharon's was one of the factors that led us to select her daycare. Our child was slow to mobilize herself (crawling and walking) and needed lots of holding and cuddling when she was an infant. It was daunting to leave our young baby in someone else's care, but we felt confident about having Sharon care for her when we saw how gentle and affectionate Sharon was in their first meeting. We give Sharon our highest recommendation as she truly has a mother's touch.
My daughter is one and has been going to Sharon at Mother's Touch Daycare for only two months, but she already loves Sharon and her daughter Amber. As soon as she sees them, she is all smiles. Sharon shows her and the other children affection and care and fosters love between them. Sharon knows children well and her care is guided by their needs and wants, rather than a strict schedule. The ratio of caregiver to child is high with two adults taking care of 5 kids max. My daughter loves the variety of age-appropriate toys, books and activities available. Sharon has converted her front yard into a playground with slides, raised sandbox and grass. Her rates are affordable and her pick-up/drop-off times flexible. I highly recommend Mother's Touch Daycare.
I would like to recommend Mother's Touch Daycare, which my son attended for nearly 3 years. It is an excellent small home based daycare, where kids get a lot of affection and attention. The ratio of caregiver per child is really high, as Sharon and her daughter Amber take care of 6 kids max. It is great for infant and young toddlers. Sharon as lots of toys, books and activities available and knows kids very well! Also her rates are affordable. Give Sharon a call at 510-636-8766. Thank you! Marion

Mother's Touch daycare, located on Mountain View (near Hwy 13 and 580 at Seminary Ave.) has 1-2 full time openings for child care this September. I have been taking my son here since he was 6 months old and have been very pleased. Sharon Langskov is the owner, she is a mother and grandmother with a warm, loving home. She and her daughter Amber take wonderful care of the children. She offers both part time and full time rates which include meals and snacks. She also offers flexible hours and weekend baby sitting when needed. If you are looking for a small, home-based daycare in the Oakland hills area I highly recommend Mother's Touch daycare. Please call or email me with questions. Thanks, Kelly
If you are looking for a place for your child that is warm, clean, bright and inviting with a loving caregiver who is concerned about the happiness and well being of each child in her care then Mother's Touch is the place you have been looking for! Sharon has a sweet way with children and they are drawn to her. I have seen children meeting her for the first time crawl right up into her lap for a snuggle! The environment has a very homey feel to it and the pace is relaxed and comfortable. As a grandmother I couldn't think of a better place for my grandchildren to go! Give her a call and arrange a visit. I think you will be glad you did! Contact: Sharon Langscove, 510-636-8766 or langoak01[at]aol.com
I would like to recommend Mother's Touch Daycare. My daughter, 3, has attended Mother's Touch since she was 4 mos. old, and our new baby will also start there soon. We are extremely happy with the attention and care our kids receive.
Sharon Langskov offers a loving home-based environment. She does some preschool activities (art projects and reading time) and also gives kids ample freedom to play as they wish with the many indoor and outdoor toys and games available. Sharon is patient and kind to children of all temperaments and personalities. Both energetic and shy kids can happily fit in there.
Our oldest is moving on to academic preschool this fall, and so Sharon has openings for toddlers (aged 2+ years) available. (No infant spots available at this time.) You can call Sharon directly. If you want to speak to me about my recommendation, ask Sharon to give you Erin's phone number. Erin
