There are a few openings available at my daughter's daycare located in the Richmond Annex. Talking Hands is a small, nurturing environment with an excellent ratio of usually no more than 3 children to 1 teacher. Nawal and Hassna both have very calm dispositions and give their undivided attention to the children. I am always amazed at how well the children of all ages play together and how well Nawal can tailor activities to the different developmental stages. They also provide hot, organic meals every day. My daughter started there as an infant and has flourished under their care.
I have nothing but good things to say about Talking Hands Daycare. I visited over a dozen day cares (in Richmond, Albany, El Cerrito, and Berkeley) before choosing to put my child here. Nawal and her assistant, Hessna, are really warm, patient, and caring individuals. I am a first time mom and putting my baby in daycare for 8 to 9 hours a day was really difficult for me, but Nawal and Hessna really put me at ease. I can drop off my daughter in the morning knowing that she will be in taken care of while I'm at work. They have openings right now. I recommend you go and visit the facility. The daycare is right off 80/580.
I highly recommend Talking Hands Daycare on Carlson in the Richmond Annex area. My 8 month-old daughter has been attending Talking Hands for the past 5 months and we have been very happy with the quality of care she is receiving. Talkind Hands is a very peaceful, supportive environment for the children and Nawal teaches the kids American Sign Language. The location is also convenient to both 580 and 80.
