Teachers

Mrs. Donnie - Director

I have had my own home daycare since 2002, and I have loved each and everyday. Before then, I spent 11 incredible years working at the Long Beach Veterans Hospital and it was there I found my passion for Early Childhood Education. With my two children enrolled in school I too began my studies in child development and eventually opened a daycare in my home. I have had ever type of child in my daycare and I celebrate diversity. I truly love children and they in turn keep me young. I am now currently enrolled in school to finish off my major.

Location

The Home

My home is a warm and loving environment. I have a covered patio that I run my daycare in. My backyard has big toys and small toys for children to play with. We do a lot of outside activities during the warm summers. We play soft music to relax our children during nap time. This is a safe and beautiful place for your family to call home and I am delighted to welcome you here.

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is safe. We have a park that is two blocks down. The neighbors are very friendly. I’ve lived here for 21 years. I’m easy access from the 405 and 91 freeway. There are schools by me that are safe, there are a community of young children that lives here.There are no noise after 7:00pm even though I live on a Main Street.

Tuition from $40/day

For 5 days of care
