My daughter started going to ABC Panda since she was 4 months. Karla and her staff have been very caring and loving. My daughter is always happy to arrive and sometimes I have a hard time trying to take her home. We are very happy and thankful with their services.

This daycare did a wonderful job at watching and nurturing our son. Karla and Esperanza treated our son like their own. They watched him from when he was about 10 months old to 22 months and helped him along with his development. Karla is also quite the cook and our son was eating very well.

Absolutely the best daycare around here. Karla treats my son like her own. She and Esperanza care all babies with loving hearts. She pays attention to details, is very patient with all babies, and most importantly all the babies LOVE her. Highly recommend.

Karla and her staff have been caring for our son for over five months. Being our first son, we were extremely cautious in selecting a daycare provider. After visiting other daycares in the area, we were unsure daycare could provide the quality of care we were looking for. Our minds were changed when we met Karla. She immediately put us at ease. Since then, the quality of care has been outstanding. We trust her completely and know our son is safe with her. We would highly recommend ABC Panda for anyone looking for daycare.

I have never submitted a review about any service before, but because Karla is so wonderful I feel I must share how incredible my experience with ABC Panda Child Care has been. My son has attended ABC Panda Child Care since he was about 4 months old. As a first time Mom, finding the right day care for my son was overwhelming, terrifying in some cases, and emotional. My husband and I visited a lot of child care businesses including nationally accredited facilities and with each visit my anxiety about leaving my baby heightened. That was until I found ABC Panda Child Care and spoke with Mora over the phone. For the first time after weeks of searching, I finally felt at ease and after meeting Karla and Mora in person we knew that our baby would be in great care with Karla. Immediately I was impressed with Karla's professionalism, trustworthiness, qualifications, and loving nature. In the 6 months our son has attended ABC Panda Child Care and under Karla's care he has developed intellectually, emotionally, socially, and artistically.

A few points to highlight about Karla and ABC Panda Child Care:
* The facility is a safe environment and very clean
* Fun activities as well as structured learning programs for the children are offered
* Karla and her staff are competent and exceptionally skilled at what they do

One of the best qualities is how much Karla loves our son and how much our son loves her. Because of that and the above, Karla is more than our day care provider she has become part of our family. Trust me - you will never regret using Karla and ABC Panda Child Care as your child care provider. Choosing Karla and ABC Panda Child Care has been one of the best decisions we have made.

My daughter has been attending ABC panda for 2 months now. I have been very happy with Karla and the way she cares for my baby. I am a first time mom .... she has made me feel as comfortable as possible having to leave my child with someone other than my family. I'd recommend Karla to anyone who wants a safe, learning and fun atmosphere for their children.

My son was at ABC Panda for 2 weeks and I can't imagine a worse experience.

On the first day, we were told that the daily rate was going to increase by approximately 25% over the price we had discussed and agreed upon; Karla basically scammed us for more money on day one. Not a good start.


Then we were told that a substitute caregiver would be looking after our son when Karla was not available, despite numerous assurances that this would not happen since there were only 2 children (my son included) at the daycare. When asked to see their licensing info, we were told that we would get copies, but these never eventuated even after numerous requests.


We told Karla very clear instructions about what to feed our son (who was 6 months old), and that our pediatrician had told us not to feed him any meat until he was at least 9 months old. Despite constant requests, he was feed meat every day. Karla refused to listen to our requests because she felt she knew better than our pediatrician.


Finally, during the second week we were told that pickup would change from 6:00pm to 5:00pm with no notice. In the contract we signed with ABD Panda, a pickup time of 6:00 is clearly stated. We were told that this was a "typo" (despite that fact that we had confirmed the 6:00 time with her twice before starting daycare). Karla then told us that if we did not like the change we should find a new daycare, but that the 5:00 time would start immediately.


After finding a new daycare, we were then told that she would not prorate our payment for the month. She gave us some excuse about how she had given us 2 weeks notice, which was a complete lie; she basically kicked us out immediately then kept all the money (about $850).


My wife and I were extremely disappointed. We thought an in-home montessori would be a fantastic place for our son and Karla's prices seemed reasonable. Unfortunately, I think Karla cannot be trusted and I have a hard time believing that the care my son received meets the licensing board standard.

I'm sorry that you feel that you had you have a bad experience. I'm a licensed provider that takes a lot pride on the quality of care for the children under my care.
