Both my little girls have been with Monique for quite some time. My first has been with her since 6 months old and my second since 6 weeks old. Monique is so kind to my children and treats them as her own. Both my daughters enjoy going to Little Monkeys Day Care and are upset when I have to pick them up because they just love it there so much. If you are looking for a loving, caring and clean environment for your children to grow in, I highly recommend Little Monkeys Day Care.

I have experienced Little Monkey's with my 3 children and it is everything advertised. Monique has a wonderful set up and does wonderful things with the kids. My children got time outside playing, inside play time and instruction and were feed quality meals. I would highly recommend Little Monkey's for any family looking for a day care for their children. My children love their time at Little Monkeys and can't wait to go back.

I have attended a few of Monique's sessions with her clients children and she does a fabulous job. She has a very clean environment, feeds them nutritious meals, has a very creative activity time for the kids and a nicely set up learning center. I have seen patience and caring that a lot of MOTHERS would not have. I highly recommend Lil Monkeys as a day care facility for anyone child.

As a first time customer for Little Monkeys hourly day care I was expecting my first experience to be a pleasant one at the very least an informative one as my sister had recommended this day care (I use the term loosely). I received neither, I was quoted an hourly rate for a certain hourly block. When I advised Monique that I would need care for my child after her hourly block she consented that it would not be a problem as she offers an" after hours day care" but would need to charge a late fee for picking up my daughter after day closing hours. I'm not sure how that somehow got warped into a miscommunication from going to a flat hourly rate (as it says in the business name itself) into a minute fee rate. As a result I was expecting $60.00 instead I was charged $190 for one day child care. So my total for my sister's children (2) plus mine was $570. At no point did Monique explain to me that there would be a rate change not a late fee as she explained so unless the late fee $130 per child I'm not sure how this goes along with any of the pricing she provided. Her justification to her misrepresentation was that was a misunderstanding (which she had no problem admitting). I would think as a customer she would want to keep me inform with the price change. At the very least because there was this mistake I was expecting to split the difference or charge me a late fee as she had previously communicated to me. She was adamant that while this was a mistake the only thing she could offer was a $50 discount. And as if this wasn't a terribly awkward situation enough the husband decided to approach us advising that there was a rate change because this was part of their "family time" I then advised while I understood his point his wife was the one that had offered her "after hours services" had this been an issue this should had been communicated to me in the very beginning. To make matters worse I was expecting to get a receipt which I didn't receive. Another issue I have with this establishment is that they are not doing what they say on their website, it says "11:30 - Lunch, 12:30 - Nap or Rest Time,2:00 - outdoor Play - Gross Motor Development 3:00 - Afternoon Snack, 4:00 -Story Time/Music/Homework Help, 6:00p - Day Closes" my daughter told me "she was a very nice lady and feed us". Now this doesn't sit well with me because my daughter was in this woman's daycare and she didn't even know her name that itself should speak to her interaction skills with children. Based on this experience I definitely will not be going back to this business and will be reporting her due to her misrepresentation. Parents be aware as this seems like a very common practice for her.

Laura & her sister arrived at 11:25am and when they dropped off the children they asked me what time I closed & told them at 6pm.They asked what would happen if they were running a little late & were stuck in traffic on the way home?I told them both at that time that if they were just going to be a little late due to traffic on the way home to call me & keep me informed and we would work it out.At 5:20pm they texted me that they were running late but couldn't give me a time because they still had not left L.A., maybe 2 hours.My response was that I didn 't know they had planned on being that late & what we had talked about was running a little late on the way back, not making any attempt to return on time to pick up their children.At that time I told them that I charge $1 per minute per child late fee after I close at 6pm, but since I had told her we would work out being a little late I would not start charging the late fee until 6:30pm. They said no problem & apologized for not communicating it right.Then they confirmed that it was $1 per minute per child so they could figure out how much it would cost.I am an hourly daycare, but I do have set business hours that are clearly stated on my sign on the front door & in the Parent Handbook that they both received & signed for.My handbook has all my charges and fees, including the late fee, which is a standard within the daycare community in the Murrieta area.I do occasionally do after hours care, but only on my Movie Night Fridays from 6-11pm or by appt only, but I never work after hours on a week day and since this was a Monday I would have never agreed to afterhours care. They arrived at 9:30pm & asked for the price & I told her $570 which already had been discounted & when she asked for a deal I stated that $500 was the lowest I could go. I feel 3 hours late is a complete abuse of my leniency and a total disrespect to me as a business.Her daughter was never left alone or unsupervised & had two meals and a snack.She was a part of all activities which included dress up, playing games, puzzles, puppet shows,& even was part our birthday celebration for one of my regular kids.I have no problem working with people, I know things happen, but when there is no attempt to even leave until after I have closed,I can only be taken advantage of so much.I have never had to charge a late fee since I have opened my doors & have never been treated so disrespectfully by any parent.I hope to never be in this situation again.
