We've been with Tanghulu daycare for over 2 years.  Our son was actually the second kid enrolled in the school.  We've been very happy with Lan and her daycare helpers especially Amei.  Amei and Lan are amazing!  The place is always clean and our son is picking up so much Mandarin.  He can count and speak in Mandarin at 2.5 years.  I don't speak any Mandarin but communicating our needs for our son hasn't been a problem.  Lan and Amei always try to accommodate our needs.  They potty-trained him and now he's fully potty-trained...doesn't even wear diapers during nap time!  When our son had a hard time adjusting to being in daycare, Amei would take him on walks with just her They made homemade meals for the kids every day---dumplings and vegetable soup. They feed them breakfast if they arrive to school by 8:30am.  The hours are great 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.  Currently there are 5 kids to two caretakers.  

Please contact Lan directly via her email sydinglan [at] gmail.com or tanghulufamilychildcare [at] gmail.com if you want more information about the daycare or want to visit.  Please do not go through a third party website b/c they collect fees and it just makes the cost of the daycare higher.  

Hi all - I wanted to post a review for Tanghulu in case this is helpful to other parents assessing daycare options. We had a tough time finding a spot with openings for two infants, but I'm glad we found Lan. Our twin boys, now 8 months old, have been attending for several months now and we have been really happy with the personalized care. It's a small family daycare and is Mandarin immersion. The director, Lan, is really attentive and great about sharing the kids' developmental achievements. 

They have one spot open now and maybe another one too for infants 1 month to 2 years old. Lan is reachable at sydinglan [at] gmail.com. This daycare is based in Albany. 


Try to contact Ms. Lan Ding at 510-375-9428, she had a family daycare in Albany. My daughter grew up from her daycare couple years ago and learned Mandarin Language from her. Weina
