I am writing to highly recommend Maria or "Maru" as we call her. Our son has been going to her daycare since he was four months old and is now about to turn three and so is graduating to preschool next month. We absolutely love Maru and couldn't be more pleased with her daycare.

Maru is a very loving and kind person with a big heart and has become a true friend. Her house is always clean and in tip-top shape and doesn't have TV. There are plenty of toys for the kids to play with and they are often listening to children's songs in English and Spanish and dancing. The atmosphere in her house is warm and inviting and my husband and I have both commented that even when we are having a bad day, we always feel better after going to Maru's house, especially on Friday afternoons when she serves spicy guacamole and chips.

Her sister and mother often help with daycare. They are both absolutely lovely and really love the kids. They will often take the older children to play "boliche" at the nearby bowling alley or go to the park. If you are looking for a clean, warm, loving, nurturing environment for your baby, I highly recommend Maru! She is truly wonderful!
