I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about Lisa and her daycare: quality care, clean, great with the kids, one of a kind. I feel so lucky to have found her and felt comfortable dropping my child off at 3 months old, it's a few years later and it's now become a second home and family for my child. My child eats healthy meals, gets plenty of exercise, has fun, and has a great curriculum taught each week. Great place with great care.

Lisa was a Godsend to my family! The plan was for my mother-in-law to take care of my daughter until she went to kindergarten, but sadly had a major heart attack at 1yr old. I searched (maybe 20+) daycare centers and homes and nothing felt right until I meant Lisa. She was knowledgeable, caring, and I LOVED that she had a preschool curriculum and projects that the kids spent time on everyday. Her family is wonderful as well and took time to talk to the kids and make them feel comfortable. They never made us feel un-welcomed in their home. I worked full time and my daughter was cared for by Lisa for 3/12 years. She was also considered advanced when she started school and I believe it had a lot to do with Lisa and her preschool curriculum.

One the best decisions we made as parents was to chose mother goose. Our 2 boys started at 3 months and stayed until 6th grade now 21 & 24 still consider lisa as family and visit often.Highly recommend Lisa without any hesitation.

Although it has been many years since we brought our kids to Lisa's daycare, Lisa and her family remain good friends. Lisa' s daycare provided a sense of security and stability, not just for our kids but for us as parents as well. At Lisa's daycare there was fun, adventure, learning, compassion and lots of patience! To this day both my boys still consider Lisa to be their second mom because she treats her day care kids as if they were her own kids and part of her family. If you are looking for a great place for home daycare, I would, without hesitation or reservation, recommend Mother Goose Daycare!!

Lisa is an excellent childcare provider, our daughter has been with her since 2013. Her home is very for lack of a better term homey! It's very neat and clean and always smells like there is something great going on in the kitchen. We couldn't ask for a better person to leave our daughter with while we are at work. If she ever has any openings do yourself a favor and schedule an interview as those open spots are not going to last long!

I have been blessed to have Lisa as our family's daycare provider for nearly 4 years. She is so much more than that really. She is my children's home away from home. She is a friend to our family, actually family to our family. She as been instrumental to the raising my children. It is hard to be away from your kids but knowing they are taken care of and loved when you are not around is priceless. She helped prepare my son for kindergarten. She taught both my boys to swim.
We are moving away this summer and I think I am most saddened by the fact I will be losing such an amazing person...and her family....in our daily lives. You couldn't ask for a better environment for your kids to grow, socialize, learn, and be taken care of.

My son started with Lisa when he was 2 years old, well that was 14 years ago and he still looks forward to seeing Lisa during the summer months to catch up. I can't say enough about Lisa, not only did she go above and beyond for our family but she remains today a very good friend.
I was so happy to be able to find a person and home setting that not only I felt comfortable in but my son couldn't wait to get there every day!!
I feel very comfortable recommending Lisa for your children, you will will never regret it.

Lisa is incredible! I have had her watch both of my children from 3 month on (my son is now 5 and my daughter is now 3) and I feel so blessed to have found Lisa. There is no one outside of my family that I would feel comfortable watching my children, and I feel good every day knowing that they are in Lisa's care. She has the most nutritious food, has educations activities everyday for preschool and prekinder age children, arts and crafts. Lisa is extremely flexible and I have never had issues in the instances when I have been running late to get the kids or need to drop the kids off a little earlier than the daycare typically opens. Lisa is always available as well! I never have to worry about finding coverage and in the instances when she is closed we get ample notice. Lisa is truly a gift and I feel so lucky to have found her 5 years ago. This daycare provides something that I think is priceless- peace of mind when your children are not with you. I love Mother Goose Daycare so much and my kids feel the same way!

My 4yr old son has been going to Lisa's daycare, part-time, for a couple of years now. Lisa's years of experience is obvious and her daycare is very well run. You know it's a great place when your child is always excited to go to the daycare and is also very happy when you pick him (or her) up. Lisa is great with my son and he looks forward to spending time with the other kids at her daycare. I know he's in good hands while he's there and I never have to worry about him after I drop him off in the morning. That's a great thing because what parent doesn't appreciate having one less thing to worry about during the day!

Regarding the earlier negative review. I've never smelled even a hint of smoke at Lisa's house and have never seen any cigarette butts. I have to wonder if she ever actually visited the house or if she's a local competitor who is posting negative (and false) reviews to discourage parents from considering other daycares in the area.

Lisa's day care is full of love. I have known Lisa since the beginning of her daycare and have watched many children raised by her loving hand. She teaches them to love, to play, to be kind and caring and to respect each other in the environment she creates for them. She incorporates play and learning into their day. Lisa's family is one that supports and loves one another and it shows in the day to day goings on at her daycare. You would be lucky to have your child attend her daycare.

We have know Lisa for over 6 years now. My daughter went there from 6 months until 4.5 yo and Lisa has been taking care of my son for 2.5 years since he was 5 months old. I don't know what I would do without her. She is very nurturing and cares for my kids like her own. She is beyond amazing. I can't recommend her enough. Her house is extra clean!!!!!

My daughter used Lisa's Daycare for 5 years (starting when she was 10 weeks old up until Kindergarten). Lisa was absolutely amazing and provided the best care possible during that entire time; I've always wished I could refer her to more friends. The results of her own children are a testament of what a great caregiver she is.

Lisa's daycare is amazing! I would give her 10 stars if I could! We aren't all lucky enough to be stay home parents, so when you have to trust your children with someone, you want to find a daycare that will treat your children as their own. Lisa does just that and more. Lisa and her family have become a part of our family. I can't thank her enough for providing my kids a safe, fun, and educational environment to thrive in everyday. Her daycare is top notch and is highly recommended!

I started my first son with Lisa full time when he was just 6 weeks and he has been going there almost 8 years now! My daughter also started at 6 weeks old and has been going ever since. Lisa made the transition to daycare an easy one for our family, and has made us so comfortable. When my son was ready for elementary school, rather than signing him up for TLC, I started him at the elementary school near Lisa, so I could continue to use her for after school care, rather than TLC. Now, my son finishes all of his homework with her and gets to spend time with his little sister after school.

Lisa should be your first stop when looking for a daycare provider.

Mother Goose Daycare is an amazing place. Lisa genuinely loves all the kids she cares for and creates a family-friendly environment. She has activities to encourage learning and fun for all ages. She is flexible to the special needs of any child. I was also pleasantly surprised that she includes a learning curriculum so my children were ready to enter kindergarten with ease. Lisa is very personable and treats the parents like family as well. We are extremely satisfied with the care Lisa offered all 3 of our kids. I would recommend Mother Goose Daycare by Lisa to anyone looking for a good home-based daycare.

BRING YOUR CHILD TO THIS AMAZING DAYCARE! This is hands down the best daycare I have ever been to. Lisa is not only the most caring woman in the world, but she takes time out everyday to do school with the kids, swim with them in the summer, do crafts with them, and so much more.

I really don't understand this 1 star review I see below, I have worked at this daycare for Lisa for 12 years and not once has she ever had a puff of a cigarette, nor does the house smell like cigarettes in the slightest (I am in it everyday). This really angers me, And furthermore, I was going to be present for this "planned tour" Jennifer is speaking of, and she never even showed up, it disgusts me how people can review someone they have never met. If you would like to have amazing child care by a woman who has been doing this for 20+ years, call Lisa.

DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE! I went there for a scheduled tour and there were many cigarette butts on the doorstep and the home smelled like cigarette smoke. It is not only a major health concern but also illegal in the state of CA.
Reply from Mother Goose Daycare by Lisa
Jennifer, I do not believe that you were at the right house. perhaps you were at my neighbors house, as he does smoke. I do not have cigarette butts on my doorstep. nor do I smoke. and my house does not smell like smoke. if my neighbor was outside smoking then I believe that was what you were smelling. I have ran my daycare for many years and I have a clean home. if you had knocked on the door and come in to meet me, you would have seen this. I believe perhaps that you jumped to judgments too quickly.
