The only reason we left Diane was because we moved out of state. We wish we could have brought her with us! She and her helpers were so incredibly caring to our daughter. We were really nervous leaving our first baby with a stranger, especially during the pandemic, but Diane made us so comfortable and was extremely safe. Our daughter ended up always reaching for another hug from Diane at pickup and couldn't wait to get inside at drop off.

One of the hardest parts of deciding to move was knowing that that my daughter would be leaving Diane, her staff and all of her friends at daycare. In addition to the convenient hours and food provided (a huge plus for busy parents!), Diane creates a loving environment where my daughter always came home happy and was excited to go to everyday. In fact, during morning meltdowns, all I had to do was ask her if she wanted to go to Ms Diane's and her mood immediately changed - she was ready to go! If you're looking for someone who will love, care for and teach your kids as if they are your own, Diane Daycare is the place to go.

Diane and her team are exceptional daycare providers. They provided care for both of my children from 12 weeks old until two and half and one year old, respectively. We only left because we moved out of state. They are incredibly nurturing and loving so all the children love and adore the staff. They have a great provider to child ratio, provide all meals and accommodate the individual needs of the children. The staff work with the children to achieve milestones like crawling, walking, eating independently, etc. They have learning toys and a teacher that comes in to work with the older kids teaching numbers, colors, etc. Additionally, the children learned to a little speak Cantonese! The kids would run inside at drop-off happy and excited - which speaks to the comfort they had in her home. Diane treated and loved our boys as though she were their grandmother. We will miss her!

I only have glowing things to say about Diane's day care. Leaving my son there felt like leaving him with a family member. Joel and all of the other children there are so happy and well cared for, smiling when he realized where we were and kicking with excitement when Diane or one of her assistants opened the door. I know that it can be a scary prospect to trust a stranger with your child's care, but you have no need to worry with Diane - I could not have been happier with our experience here!

My daughter loved her time at Diane's. She was there for about a year, and she loved Diane and all of her helpers. We loved her place, because it reminded me of grandma's house. She provies breakfast and lunch plus snacks, which is a huge help for busy parents. Her house is located in a quiet neighborhood, too. My daughter also picked up some new words while attending. We only left this daycare because we had to move.

We loved the place from day 1. Our son was 2 months and a half at the time. Diane is very caring. Our son was with Diane until we moved 10 months later and we were sad for him to have to change daycare. He would come home every day happy and smiling, that is priceless when you are a parent, being able to trust someone to take care of your child that well. We highly recommend Diane's daycare.

I found Diane through care.com and was so impressed when I toured her center. It's a bright and engaging place for babies and young children. My 11-month old daughter really loves it. Diane and her assistants are so good with the children, providing them with ample affection, care, and attention. I do not worry about my child getting lost in the daycare shuffle you see in other, more commercialized centers. I highly recommend checking this wonderful center out.

We are so grateful to have found Diane. My daughter has been with Diane for 8 months now. Diane and her assistants have been very loving with my daughter, she loves being dropped off every morning. She makes delicious food and my daughter is learning so much; she is even starting to understand and speak Chinese! Diane has been flexible and patient with us and she is so knowledgeable about young children. We really feel like we've found a hidden gem. -Olivia

We love Diane's! She and her assistants are great with the kids. They somehow managed to teach our 1 year old how to nap during the day (better than at home), they cook delicious meals for breakfast, lunch and snacks, and they speak Mandarin and the kids all understand it. So cool!

Our son has been with Diane for almost 2 years - since he was three months old. We are so grateful to Diane for being such a great caregiver and teacher. We are continuously amazed at how much he learns each week. He quickly learned his ABC's and numbers, and his first word was in Mandarin! Diane is like family - she gives each of the children so much love and attention. Our son is always so happy to see her in the morning and hated leaving at the end of the day.
When we first met Diane, we knew that she would give our son the love and attention that the large daycare centers cannot possibly provide. Knowing that he was in such a safe and caring environment made working so much easier. We also love the fact that our son spends his days with children of different ages. As a result, he is so gentle with babies and younger children. He also learned early how to share and behave around other kids.
Our son was never a good napper, but Diane somehow got him into a great schedule so that he always came home well rested. As first time parents, she was also an invaluable resource to us as we navigated the many different transitions and challenges of the first two years.
Diane is a hidden gem and any child who spends time in her care is very lucky indeed.

Our son (now 11 months) has been with Diane since he was 3 months old. She is amazing! It is such a warm environment - he gets so much love and attention. Knowing how well he is cared for makes working so much easier. She is also very flexible - we sometimes need to add a day or two and she is always happy to accomodate us - even if things change last minute. She is also always one step ahead of us and has been such a great resource for us as new parents. Thank you Diane!!

My son is 3yrs old and has Autism, after trying 3 other places we picked Diane's. He LOVES it there and can not wait to go to 'school' at Diane's. She was very flexible with his therapists and often helped them to achieve what they needed our son to do. She was very helpful to me as a working mother knowing that I would sometimes need to drop him off early on some days and pick him up late on others. She has a wonderful back yard that he loves to run around in and has made friends with the other children that go there. We continue to use her for summer vacations and winter vacations when school is out.

Thank you so much Diane your an angel,

Laura S. (NC too!)

My son started attending Diane's Daycare when he was close to one. Since his older sister had hard time adjusting to a big "regular" Daycare when she started at about the same age, we decide to find a smaller daycare that is more flexible in taking care of his needs in terms of meals and naps.
We feel so lucky that we find Diane. She has a very warm personality and fun to play with. It took little time for my son to transition to the routines. He rarely cried at drop-off even in the first week, maybe because he can't wait to play with those interesting toys. The center is located in a quiet and convenient neighborhood with a big circle of sidewalk. It is soothing for little kids to be strolled around before nap or for a walk. Most importantly, she and her staff cook tasty foods for my son who wouldn't drink milk. He also learned many words, learned colors and shapes with Diane at a young age.
Diane is very flexible in meeting our needs. We sometime send my son on Saturdays for a few hours. And Diane also provided afterschool care for my daughter who is in elementary school.
Thanks Diane!!
