My Daughter started happy Lion when she was almost three years old and newly diagnosed with autism. Before my husband and I found Happy Lion I was given a 5 page list by Coco for kids of different daycare's in the area San Pablo and Richmond. Going down the list I have called EVERY SINGLE Daycare. Once I mention that my daughter is on the spectrum, we get turned away. While understand that they were honest and they didn't have the necessary resources for a child on the spectrum. This became very frustrating as a parent looking for childcare. We Called happy lion and started asking questions Ms Wednesday reassured us of any fears of being rejected because of my daughter being on the spectrum. She was very welcoming and warm. The day that we came in she gave us a tour of the daycare, inside it is very spacious so many different activities to do. My daughter has been going to happy lion For roughly three years. In my honest opinion Ms Wednesday and Staff have taken such a big role in my daughters life they are usually my to go people. If I have questions Ms Wednesday has been such a big support when there is a problem in the daycare that needs to be addressed she's a very quick to have it resolved by the following day. When we were having money problems she had no problem in helping us, like adjusting payments. A big one for me is that she has given me so much support when it comes to Regional Center, my case manager personally hasn't really doesn't give me much support but I am grateful to have Ms Wednesday around to answer any questions that I have. Also the rest of the staff is amazing they are always so open to talk to you, always giving me an update about my daughter throughout the day. Overall Happy Lion child care has been almost a saving grace for my husband and I. Always providing the support that we need and also helping my daughter grow.

As much as I would like to say good things about this daycare and how it is run nicely. But that would not be the truth. My child has gone here about the age of 5 to 6 and he has been saying that the teachers did not care and the students would often would make fun of my child and bully. One day it got so bad my child left the day care crying because of the way the teachers yelled at him. Weeks later, it had happened again and this time my child was crying very much and saying "They yelled at me!" and sobbing as much as my child could. Do not go to this daycare

This Daycare may look like a nice place or a happy place to be,but its not.My child has said that people would bully,and no one cared.Its not a good place to be as a kid.They have very bad things there such as rude people and bad food.They make you feel dumb.The teachers put you in time out for nothing.They teachers are very rude with the big kids,the place is so cold,no one cares for anything and must of the kids will be rude and people(like the teachers)will do nothing but put you on time!I hope you think before you put your child in this place!
