My daughter unique started going to Ms. Vivian's Little Munchkins daycare WOW I believe 9 years ago. My daughter was 2 years old at the time and I couldn't believe the progress my daughter made while being there. My daughter walked in there with her pacifier and she did not wanna get rid of it but two weeks later my daughter did not use a pacifier ever again. My daughter learned manners, her A,B,C's very quickly and she was very well feed and clean. She works with great staffs and very loving individuals. If I was in New York i will put my two year old in Little Munchkins daycare. I am very picky with who I leave my kids with but I had a great experience with Ms. Vivian she is an amazing, helpful and understanding individual. She always found ways to help me in whatever situation I was in so I just wanna say she's and amazing person and caregiver. May God bless her forever!

The best daycare in the Bronx, I give it 5 , I loved the education she gave to my kids. I have tried finding a daycare as good as this one, because she teaches your kids things that your child will have to learn at school. She treats your child like her own, My kids love her and miss her

My daughter started Little Munchkins Daycare at 5 months, one day she got sick, choke up on her vomit and Vivian right away took care of her and called me. When I was in the hospital she was very concern and each day call to see how the baby was doing. I was grateful. Ashley is her daughter, she's great with the baby. The environment is safe, my child is always clean and home made meals are a plus.

I highly recommend this daycare. Since my son has been going to Littke Munckins I have seen a significant improvement in his speech and development. Before attending the daycare, my son didn't know his alphabet or numbers. Now he is talking nonstop and knows his letters colors, etc. Owner also helped with potty training which was a huge plus. I chose this daycare for its home environment. Children are given home cook meals and well cared for.

My son has been attending Little Munchkin's Daycare for about 4 months now. In the beginning it was difficult, as he was adjusting to a very new environment. Yes, it broke my heart but as time went by, there became less crying to no crying at all. Vivian made this difficult transition possible by allowing me to check on him through out the day. Now, he looks forward to
going to Vivian everyday! Like every other work place, Vivian has her rules and regulations. If you work with her, she will most likely work with you. Her place is well kept and very child friendly!

My son attended Little Munchkins Daycare from the age of 3 to Kindergarten. I loved the family setting and structure. The lesson plans taught prepared him for school and allowed my son to be at the top of his class.
I almost always picked my son up with a goody bag or an arts & craft project he made for me. I'd definitely recommend their service.

Little munchkins get a 5+ rating. When I started looking for childcare.I meet Ms vivian giving out flyers in the area were we lived.I came at the right time because I was going threw somethings at the time.she welcomed me and My baby with opened arms very under standing and will work with you. My baby started at 7months old my daughter was there for a 1yr until we moved.The experience taking my daughter was phenomenal she loved going there all the time, they called her Happy baby she went in there laughing and playing all the time. The love and caring Mrs vivian and her staff give to the child is excellent. Mrs vivian have a curriculum nd actives for the kids. She keep them busy.She keep a very clean and safe atmosphere. I couldn't have found a better place @ Little Munchkins 1000 percent.THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING

I wish I could give this more than a 5 star rating. I enrolled my 3 year old daughter into Little Munchkins Day Care a few months ago. I'm a first time mother and I was very nervous because it was my daughters first time being in daycare. I didn't know if she was going to adjust to being around a group of children and to being away from me and her father being it was an environment she didn't know. My fear quickly disappeared just days after her being there. She stopped crying when I would drop her off and she started looking forward to going to school (as my daughter calls it). She is always telling me what she learned from Nana and her staff. Every day she comes home more educated and happy. Being in Little Munchkin Daycare, my daughter learned her ABC's, colors, shapes, songs and numbers. She is learning how to write her name. AND Mrs. Rosario even potty trained her! AND they even throw birthday parties for each child's birthday and makes them feel special. Holiday parties are thrown for them as well. Mrs. Rosario and her staff are very loving and nurturing. She treats these children as if they are her own and makes you feel like family. I would not want my daughter anywhere else. I can go to work with my mind at peace KNOWING my daughter is taken care of and is in excellent hands.
To the parent who gave this a bad review, I'm sorry you feel this way but all children are different and adapt differently to new environments. Some adapt and some don't. Maybe the time wasn't right and your child was not ready to part from his parent just yet, and that's ok. But Mrs. Rosario and her business should not be blamed for that. These children do not fear her, they have love for her and so do us parents. Maybe when your son is older he will adapt better and it will be easier.

My son is 20 months old, and he has been enrolled at Little Munchkins Daycare since October 2017. He has a wonderful time with Ms. Rosario and Ashley and Sue Ellen, and all the other staff and assistants. He has made good friends here with the other toddlers, and he smiles when he knows he's going to Nana's to see his friends, like JJ. He loves Ms. Rosario's home-cooked meals, and he loves to play at Little Munchkins. He learns nursery rhymes and his colors, numbers, and ABCs. He goes to sleep at naptime better with "Nana" than he does at home! He has been having a wonderful time here, and I do not worry when I am dropping him off because I know I have entrusted his care to warm, nurturing adults who adore my son and take good care of him.

First off let me say to the mother, Ms. Elaishun. I don't see that is a real issue here because my daughter started in November of 2016 and she was crying, non-stop for months. Mrs. Rosario understands why my daughter cries because it is normal for all kids to cry at her daycare. I was a little nervous about leaving her the first few days but as the time went by I felt more at ease. As months go by, my daughter is very happy there. I always ask her, where are you going? And she responses with "Nana's house" Yes, she calls Mrs. Rosario, "Nana" she puts a smile on my face because she shows me she likes her and her assistants. Mrs. Rosario and her assistants are the warm family feel that I was looking for in a daycare. They treat us as if they had known us already. I recommend this to everyone. It has been the best experience for my daughter as well as myself.
Ms. Elaishun, I am sorry you experience this but maybe because your son is not ready to be away from his parents. It's very tough believe me I have been there and I know how it is like, especially I am a first time mom and my daughter is a single child. She cries all the time. Like I said before, as months go by, she is a happy child and always says, Nana's house when I ask her where are we going? She obsesses with nana because she says "Nana's house" and I tell her no, we are going to mama's house (my mom). Your child is not ready. Perhaps when he turns 2, he will understand. That's how I did with my daughter. Now, she is 2 and half years old.

Little munchkins daycare has been the best experience for my 18 month old and myself as a parent , they are very convenient and hands on with each child ! The assistants and director do a great job at assuring that all kids come in clean and leave clean as well and provide them with three meals a day and teaching each child proper structure as in table manners and how to treat others , they've helped me introduce my child to many things he was afraid of before . My child has never gotten hurt under their care . I greatly recommend little munchkins daycare to parents and children in need of childcare ! I love their services .

is was the first daycare for my 13 month old and this has been the worst experience EVER! The owner Vivian Rosario was very sweet initially and I was excited about my child starting. However; after it was apparent that my child was not adjusting to being at this daycare, I would CONSTANTLY receive complaints from the owner, stating my child was a headache hindrance as if he was doing this on purpose, not taking it in consideration that this is FIRST DAYCARE experience. She fussed non-stop and it was hard on me to deal with as a first time parent. My son did not cry with her assistants (one of the assistants because being her daughter) but in her presence, he would cry. The owner's demeanor is stern and NOT nurturing at all. She even said it at one of the parent teacher meetings that the other children feared her and would do as she said she liked to yell and didn't "play". While some of the parents loved her structure, it scared me for my child. She didn't like that I questioned her and the staff so she ultimately kicked my child out via text message and said he was best for a nanny bc he cried to much. Don't get me wrong some parents loved her. But if your child cries and is not use to daycare, don't go to her because she definitely wasn't considerate and didn't care about mine. I am grateful he is no longer there and now he happy.

Best daycare/preschool in the area! Ms. Rosario and her staff are attentive, nurturing, and highly skilled. Our 2 years old daughter has thrived in this environment and we are grateful every day to have her at Little Munchkins. She has learned from the basic ABCs and 123s and she surprises me by saying "Minnie Mouse" Ever since she starts there, she learns so much. I admire Ms. Rosario and her staff very much. They are always so caring and professional and very attuned to each child's individual needs and habits. I hope my comment helps to any parent who is looking for an excellent daycare/preschool.
