I'm recommending Rayito Del Sol to parents who are looking for a well established in home daycare. I came about this daycare through a word of mouth and to my extent I have no complains. Sylvia and her mother Dolores who takes care of the part time and full time children are great. At first it was hard to find a daycare that would take my 3 yr old with his/my complicated schedule. But to my surprise Sylvia was understanding and welcoming to our schedule. She is very good with children, as I was nervous about putting in my son in a daycare; since I was a stay at home mom for 2 1/2 yrs. I loved that she had a bilingual based daycare, which allowed my son to be exposed to Spanish a lot more. He would come home singing in Spanish and pronounce things in Spanish that would shock me because I thought he wouldn't be able to adapt to it quicky. About almost everyday he would come home with something artistic to show me and he would tell me what he would do at school, which seem liked he enjoyed himself most of the time. I appreciate Sylvia for taking the time to compromise with or schedule as well as work with my child to develop a good bond with her. It saddens me that he will leave rayito due to scheduling complications that has nothing to do with Sylvia accommodations. I highly recommend Rayito if you want your child to engage in sociable activities, allow them to learn a new language and develop growth throughout the program. My son will miss Rayito as he is already comfortable there but it was definitely worth a shot to experience my child grow and make new friends. Thank you rayito, Sylvia and Dolores for your welcoming arms.
Our daycare Rayito de Sol (Silvia Perez and family) has openings for full and part-time care. We adore Silvia and our twins have grown so much in her care. Silvia has a fantastic play area/kitchen/sleeping room in the lower part of her house and a big backyard with fruit trees, sandbox and tons of toys/structures. Every day she does circle time with songs (Spanish and English), free play, snacks and outside time when it's sunny. She is so loving and an expert with kids - I am constantly amazed at what she gets a gaggle of toddlers to do with a smile. She also does art projects/crafts and finds strengths in the individual children which she shares with you as the parent. Silvia is flexible with times and we were able to work out AM times that we needed that other daycares wouldn't do. We rely on her so much and have learned some childrearing techniques from her as well. She really knows her stuff, and has fun while doing it. She is located with very easy access to 80 in Richmond Annex. Text or call Silvia at (510) 566-6005.

I am writing to recommend a new daycare in the Richmond Annex. The director, Silvia Perez, has many years of experience caring for children between the ages of 1 and 5 and it shows! The daycare itself is spacious and well organized (a room for art and messy activities, a room for dress-up and pretend play, and a large area for circle time and manipulatives along with a spacious yard). What is most remarkable, however, is Silvia herself. She is warm, empathetic and nurturing and provides each child with plenty of love and individual attention along with lots of stimulating activities. Silvia currently has a couple of openings for kids 18 months and up. Our child loves going to see her friends at Rayito de Sol and I am sure that yours would too.

I am writing to recommend Rayito de Sol, an in home daycare recently opened by one of my son's former preschool teachers. Sylvia is a wonderful mother of two with years of experience at the bilingual preschool that my 3 year old started attending this year (Mi Escuelita). She patiently helped my son adapt to the busy and structured environment of school and understood his ''slow to warm'' temperament. I remember meeting her the day I toured the school and feeling very at ease with her warmth and sensitivity to young children.

Sylvia watched my son during his two week summer break at her home in the Richmond Annex. Her residence is large with a separate entrance and 3 rooms downstairs for the daycare. The backyard is spacious with fruit trees and different play equipment. She has lots of dress up clothes and art supplies which my son enjoyed.
