Marisel took excellent care of my 19-month old daughter while she was in her care. They would spend a lot of time in the local park and playground, which my kiddo really loved. We liked that it is a very small group of children so we knew she got a lot of attention and care. I definitely would recommend Marisel and would be happy to return to her care if we needed it.

"Who should watch after my kids when I'm not around?" is one of the biggest decisions you have to make as a parent, and every day Marisel made us feel like we had made a great choice. "My Second Home" really became an extension of our home and family. I'd give six stars if I could, this is a special place for kids to grow up.

Marisel is an amazing, warm, loving and responsible care provider. Our baby, max, was 7 months when he started going to "My second home day care" and this was truly his second home. Max was always happy to go to daycare, and we loved seeing him blossom as the months passed. We came to Davis for a few months for work, and we will miss Marisel's daycare terribly. I'm happy to provide any additional information of anyone is interested, she has my strongest and most glowing recommendation.

Marisel looked after our son from age 15 months to 2 and a half, and I can't recommend her highly enough! She's a wonderful, kind, patient caregiver and provides a safe, warm, fun and enriching educational environment. Our son's days were filled with trips to the park, delicious meals and snacks, lots of painting and activities, and lots of learning words, colors and numbers in Spanish. He flourished under her care and she truly feels like part of the family. She also transformed him into a champion nap-taker and cow's milk drinker. Marisel's home is lovely, bright and spotless, and she was accommodating to our needs and schedules. She did so much for our son, and our family, and we're so grateful to have had her in our lives.

Marisel is the best! Our son was in her care from the age of one year until just after his second birthday. Marisel is calm, patient, and deeply caring, and her home is a safe and nurturing place for young children. Our son's days with her were filled with trips to the park, lots of books, colorful toys, Spanish lessons, and delicious, homemade lunches and snacks. For us, Marisel provided regular updates and photographs, and helped us with ideas and advice when we needed them. She was so dependable, and flexible when there were changes to our schedule.

Perhaps most importantly, Marisel truly cares for and about the children in her care. Our son has been so lucky to have her in his life. We can't recommend her highly enough!

We love Marisel! Her home is clean and welcoming for children of all ages, and she provides excellent enrichment activities as well as Spanish language instruction. She takes the kids to the park, provides wonderful and healthy food, and is very communicative including texting photos - something I appreciated greatly. Marisel genuinely loves the kids in her care. Every child should be so lucky to have Marisel to care for them!

Marisel provided a true second home to our daughter. We always felt certain that our child was safe, secure, and stimulated. We loved the bilingual spanish aspect of Marisel's home, and she truly treated us as an extension of her family. Can't recommend her enough!

Marisel took care of my son Gabriel from 11 months old to almost 3 years old. I couldn't be more thankful for having her and her family looking after my boy. Her flexible schedule was very helpful with my working hours. She is very patient with the kids and she was really good on following Gabriel schedules and communicating his day to day activities. I felt so lucky to find Marisel to help my son learn and grow and feel loved and understood. I highly recommend her.

We can't say enough about how wonderful our daughter's experience with Marisel and her co-workers was for us. As a first time parent Marisel made it so easy and reassuring for us to leave our daughter at 4 months old with her. She stayed with her full-time until she was 2.5. Our daughter received love, individual attention, laughter, hugs, kisses, wonderful home cooked meals and snacks, outings to the local playground, visits from a music teacher, developed of love of music, singing, dancing, .... Our daughter loved Marisel's daughters also and looked forward to seeing them before and after their own school. Marisel always worked with us on nap schedules, any diet needs, etc. She is very easy to work with and willing to support her families in anyway she can. We continue to stay in touch with Marisel and her family as she checks in on how our daughter is still doing from time to time and we share pictures of our kids and hers. Hands down I would recommend My Second Home Daycare to anyone looking for a home away from home for their little one!

Marisel took care of my daughter Lucy from age 6 months to when Lucy was two, and she was absolutely fantastic. She is calm, incredibly loving, and really loves the children in her care like they are her own. She gave me peace of mind knowing that Lucy was being loved and cared for while I was away. Lucy still asks to go play at her house!

Marisel took care of both my sons (3 years apart) and we could not have asked for a better in home daycare. She fed them nutritious meals, napped them better than we ever did at home, and showered them with love. There is nothing like knowing that your children are being watched and taken care of just like you would do if you were home. We had an amazing experience with her and can't recommend her highly enough!

We loved My Second Home Daycare! There is nothing better than knowing your babies are in great hands when leaving them for the day. Marisel would update us during the day on what our boys ate and how they slept. I especially liked how they would take the kids to the park on a daily basis and send us pictures of them exploring and having fun! When the weather was lousy, Marisel would have them create things from play-doh and have games for them inside. It was really sad leaving this great daycare!

Marisel's home has truly been a second home for my daughter. We moved to the area with virtually no notice this spring and were panicked to discover that all of the area preschools had long waiting lists. We found Marisel through Care.com and she has been a godsend. She and her sister have cared for my daughter like family and helped ease her transition to a new place. They've supported us through potty training and have become friends to the family. My child finally secured a spot at an area preschool, and since she's nearly 4 we'll be moving on from My Second Home but will be forever grateful for the care and support they've shown our family.

Marisel and Juliana are excellent caregivers! My 2-year-old son had never been to a daycare before starting at My Second Home, so I was nervous about how he'd react, but he absolutely loved it. Every day I'd pick him up and he'd ask if he could go back again the next day to "play with his friends". I would definitely recommend My Second Home Daycare to anyone looking for reliable, loving and safe in-home care.

Marisel's daycare was truly a second home for my son from 5 mos to 22 mos -- and we all cried when we moved away! She provides a loving, safe, clean, and stimulating environment for children. She is attentive to each child's needs and very adaptable/flexible for feeding, naps, etc. She provides healthy meals and snacks. We loved that she communicated with us frequently throughout the day with texts and photos so we felt included and connected. Highly recommend!!

Marisel couldn't have chosen a better name for her daycare - it truly was a second home for our son for about a year before we moved.
Marisel provides a safe and loving environment for the children in her home. She has managed to gather a group of great children and families and our son was always happy to walk through her door. The children play, sing, do arts and crafts and go to the nearby playground daily. All members of Marisel's family were always extremely loving and affectionate with the children in her care. Marisel is very responsible and trustworthy, e.g. she only accepts infants older than 5 months old to ensure that all children in her care get the attention they need.
Here are some of the things that we liked about our daily routine at My Second Home:
- Structured yet flexible daily schedule to accommodate the children's mood and nap times
- Home-cooked healthy meals (Marisel provides a meal plan and accommodates special requests, e.g. organic food)
- Frequent communication (Marisel often sent pictures and videos by text and is generally very responsive)
- Flexible hours (drop-off and pick-up times as well as drop-ins when we needed backup care)
- Celebrations of milestones like birthdays and holidays (Halloween, Christmas, etc.)
We were quite anxious about putting our son in a daycare but Marisel provided complete peace of mind and we are so grateful to her for the wonderful experience. We will always fondly remember Marisel and her whole family at My Second Daycare!

Marisel provides a clean, safe and welcoming environment for kids. I had to change daycare's because of a job relocation, but otherwise had no complaints. My son was well taken care of and learned a lot while with her. She provided healthy meals, and it genuinely felt like my son's home away from home. Highly recommend visiting her if you're in the San Mateo area.

My son has been with Marisel since he was about 7 or 8 months old. She has truly been a second mom and a blessing to our family.

Henry is very comfortable there and it is a loving environment. Marisel is so responsive and professional. I highly recommend her.
