Rachan runs a very clean, fun and loving daycare center in her home. Her hours and prices are the best I've seen and she provides great care for her many little ones. She is very experienced and doesn't get frustrated with even the toughest babies/kids. We are very thankful for the time our daughter was able to go there. The only reason she isn't anymore is because my work schedule changed and we found we didn't need full time/part time day care. Thank you Rachan for all that you do!

By far one of the very best daycare providers! Truly loving, kind, patient, clean!! My 2 year old daughter is coming home saying, "Hola,!" and Learning her numbers in Spanish! Truly a blessing to feel so comfortable with leaving your baby with someone who loves and cares!

I absolutely love Little Achiever's and most importantly so do my children. Ms. Rachan gives loves to all the children and provides a clean environment for the kids to thrive. I'm excited to know my children will also be taught Spanish during their time there. I have recommended Little Achiever's to my friends and family because of the great experience I am having.

My son loves Miss Rachan! Almost every morning when I drop him off he runs off to play without hesitation. He is in such good hands here and he learns something new everyday. Miss Rachan is so sweet, kind and patient and it's pretty clear how much all the kids love her! Thank you Little Achievers for allowing us to go back to work with one less thing to worry about :)

Wonderful place for little ones!! My daughter has been with Mrs. Rachan full-time for almost a year now. I feel so blessed to have found her. She is such a talented caregiver, so good with my strong-willed, boundary-testing 2 1/2 year-old! Mrs. Rachan puts the highest priority on all of her kids and provides them with a safe and educational environment. My daughter has blossomed under Mrs. Rachan's care and guidance.

Our little guy has been going here since the beginning of the year @ 4 months old. Ms. Rachan is very nurturing and he adores her. I would love to stay home with him but I know he is safe and loved at Little Achievers while I am away.

Finding this day care was the best thing that happened to my family. My daughter has been with Mrs.Rachan since she was 3 months, she is now 2 1/2. I looked at a several day cares before finding her and almost did not go back to work. After visiting the day care I know my daughter would be safe here. She loves it, and I know she is happy there because she never want to leave.

Miss Rachan is amazing. My fianc and I stopped looking for childcare once we met Miss Rachan. And she was the first one we met with! She truly makes the kids a priority and is so good them; nurturing, patient. My daughter loves going there each day. I have a long commute and knowing that my daughter is in good hands and so well taken care of, makes it easier on me. I would recommend Miss Rachan to anyone needing childcare.

We have been a "Little Achievers" family for over a year and could not be more pleased with the service. We have absolute confidence in the quality of care and professionalism provided by Ms. Rachan. The environment is warm, creative, and family oriented. Our 18 month old daughter loves it so much that sometimes she does not want to leave at the end of the day. As a mom with a long commute to and from work to Los Angeles, the hours of operation are very accommodating to my schedule; I feel great knowing that my daughter is being cared for by a patient and loving daycare provider that has such passion for children. My husband and I highly and enthusiastically recommend Little Achievers! Ms. Rachan has been a blessing to our family!

Mrs. McAlpin has been a Blessing to me and my child. I feel like I'm taking my child to a family member's home everyday. I don't worry during the day. I have peace of mind and I can focus on business. She treats all of the children as if they were her own. Little Achievers is a family environment. I adore all of my child's little friends at Little Achievers. I have also become friendly with some of the other parents. As a first time mother, Mrs. McAlpin's experience and advice have been invaluable to me. I was recommended to Little Achievers by colleagues and friends. It is with pleasure that I recommend Little Achievers to everyone.

Best Day Care Ever! Mrs. Rachan has watched my little man since he was 4 months old. He is now 7 and a half. Reece loves her like family.
Always accommodating, flexible, and reasonably priced. I'm proud to refer anyone I know looking for child care to Mrs. Rachan and Little Achievers!!

When I started looking for a child care center I went to several places. I left the previous daycare because I did a pop up visit one day and found my 3 month old daughter who was just learning to try to balance herself (sitting up), was on the couch by herself, with nothing around her to support her from falling and hitting her face on the table/ tile floor in front of her. The provider knew I was livid. The provider wasn't even in the area of my baby if she did fall!! Her teenage daughter is the one who answered the door and she may have been upset with her seeing me come in behind her. She was my 1st and only child (still is so far) and of course I was very protective & still am. Needless to say I took off from work to take the rest of my maternity leave. Because she was my only child naturally she wouldn't go to anyone but her father & I and select family members. When I started going to meet with different providers, my baby just looked at them but refused to leave my arms for them. When I got to Ms. Rachan's house (I don't know if Ms. Rachan remembers this but of course I do...) she opened the front door my baby literally open her arms, leaned in & reached for her and all I could say to myself was 'wow'....as they say 'children know' that in itself was a huge sign to me obviously :). She started there as soon as I left maternity leave which was a couple of weeks later. I felt comfortable knowing that she treated my child as if she was her own. I was warned before taking her there that when you bring your child here not only are they going to be well taken care of; but they also may not want to go home! That your child will be Ms. Rachan's baby!  Your child(ren) will be so loved and treated as part of the family. Bringing you child(ren) here they will learn & have a great start when they go to school. My 1st & only child has been w/Ms. Rachan since she was about 4 months old. She is now 2 1/2yrs old. My daughter was potty trained by Ms Rachan, she knows how to do her lessons on the computer...THE COMPUTER @2 1/2yrs old!! She knows her alphabets, numbers, colors, can hold a conversation....no baby talk being done here, she is getting them ready---school bound! Everything that was implemented at Lil Achievers I kept up at home. After all she is my 1st child I accepted the guidance. I plan to have more children & unless I move out of the area my children won't be going to any other place. Ms. Rachan is a blessing; she is a good woman with a good heart. I have no worries at all that my child is in great hands...better than Allstate! 

Wow! Where do I start, Little Achievers Daycare is awesome. I have two (2) grandsons 2 & 3 years old who are in this daycare. Both have been there since they were infants. I can honestly say that Ms Rachan is one of the best daycare providers I have ever met in my life. If anyone was placed on this earth for such a purpose it is her. I have never worried about their well being or anything else for that matter since my daughter placed them in Little Acheivers. The attention that is given to each child is as if she had these babies and toddlers herself. My grandsons love their daycare provider so much that they sometimes want to go on Saturdays when it's their day off. They have a study curriculum age appropriate for each child, healthy food menus, arts and crafts, playtime, movie day as well as potty training. My grandsons are so eager in the mornings to go to daycare. You never have to worry that your child will be released to anyone not authorized to receive them as safety and security is well enforced. If your child has any allergy you can rest assure that she is on top of it and will make sure your child will have no issue. All I can say is that I feel so blessed that my daughter was fortunate enough to be referred to such an amazing, attentive and outstanding daycare provider. Ms Rachan I just want to say that you and Little Achievers Daycare are heaven sent and I am so happy that my grandsons have you for their daycare. They love you Mrs. Rachan McAlpine. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all you do and continue to do for my lil ones as well as the other children in your care.

Little Achiever's Daycare is a wonderful and safe place for your child! My daughter started going there when she was almost a year old. Before that time, she was being cared for by my mother so I knew she was in loving hands. However, when it was time for my mother to release herself from her grandmotherly duties my husband and I became fearful of whom to select to care for our small child. I will admit, our sweet little one was not the nicest baby in the world and she was also very shy. Most of the time, she would not even go to our family members without screaming and crying.
After about a month and a half of interviewing various daycares located on the Westside Palmdale I found myself becoming very discouraged. Some of the awful things which I encountered upon my visits shocked me so much that I thought about just becoming a stay at home mother. I was not a new mother so I would not call myself being paranoid or overprotective. Some of the places I visited were either extremely dirty or the children were just setting around watching TV in a daze.
Feeling frustrated I came to one of the last daycares on my long list. Thank you Lord! From the moment me and my daughter walked in the door I could tell this home was well cared for and certainly CLEAN! When we were given the tour I noticed most of the walking children following Mrs. Rachan around like little helpers. She took her time with my less than friendly child. We sat down in the playroom and I watched how the other children, crawling and walking gathered around to sit under her or simply come to hug her. It was really cute to see these small children displaying affection for their caregiver. Right then, my daughter crawled out of my lap and went right to Mrs. Rachan and sat in her lap. I was shocked! I knew right then and there this was the place, my daughter had chosen her care provider.
During her stay at Little Achiever's my daughter has learned so much. She was potty-trained, feed healthy meals, and learned to play interactively with other children. She even learned a great deal of computer skills. I was amazed at the different lessons she was learning there. Every day she would have her lessons that she'd completed and sometimes even a little homework. At first I thought, how cute, she has homework at three but when I noticed how eager she was to do it I was surprised. Little Achiever's helped my daughter to get ready for kindergarten and the transitions was smooth. I am truly grateful for all the amazing things Little Achiever's Daycare has taught my daughter and I would recommend its services to any parent looking for a clean, loving and educational environment for their child.

Little Achiever's Day Care is a wonderful enviroment to have your child or children. I have been with Mrs. McAlpine since my five year old was nine months and my three year old since birth. I won't move out the area until my three year old is ready for kinder. I can say, that I don't worry one bit about the care, my babies are receiving. If you want your child to receive the same love and care you give them yourself, this is the day care is for you. I really love that age range is primarly infant to preschool, you don't have to worry about older kids mistreating the little ones. Both of my children learned their ABC,123's, colors, shapes, and so much more with Mrs. McAlpine. Potty training is either taught or reinforced . Disclipine is fair and age appropriate. If your a first time parent go here Mrs. McApline puts your worries and fears to rest. ( never hesitate to ask for help; as well as being a day care provider she is an excellent mother of 4, two college graduates, one ready to enter college this fall and the youngest is a GATE scholar.) During busniess hours the center is only about business you never have to worry about unfirmillary faces and unneccessary drama. Security and saftey is number one, you will never have a child release to someone that's not authorized. Little Achiever's Day Care is where you want you child to be. Mrs. McAlpine is as close as one can get to you taking care of your child yourself.
