As a parent of three wonderful children, I know it can be difficult to leave your infant in someone else's care and be confident that your baby gets the same care and stimulation you would give him/her. Here at Ruth's ABC Childcare (my in home childcare), I provide much more than just a babysitting service. Your child will receive exceptional quality childcare while in my home, and obtain the one-on-one time they would receive at home with a private nanny. My home is safe and I provide a very warm home-like environment where your child can play and enjoy being a kid; and have early experiences that last a lifetime.
Your child will enjoy:
*Balanced meals (Nutritional Meals)
*Inside - Outside activities
*Story Time & Fun time
*And lots of TLC
Please Note: My home is a License home with the state and the department of family and protective services. I am CPR and First Aid certified.
Hours of operation Monday- Friday 6:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

When I first went for my interview my son was having the worst day, poor guy, he literally cried the first 10m as I tried to comfort him, after that I even tried breastfeeding him which typically works wonders. I tried to convince her he was typically not like that, which is true. Then Ruth and her mother took him and he was rocked to sleep in comfort. Which was amazing, because I had been the only one caring for him for his first 4 months. After that, I knew he was in good hands because this was a caregiver who actually cared about her kids.
You can typically tell when someone is in this business for the money, and that's not the case with Ruth. I know that she has the kids best interest at heart. Plus, has an amazing ratio, which I'm always concerned about.
I never thought I would use a home daycare provider, but we were desperate to get our baby out of a big daycare center that was making our baby sick and miserable! We found Ruth, a licensed in-home provider who lovingly takes the care of the children in her home, which comes through in the way she cares for our baby. It has made a night and day difference for us! Our baby put on weight, his eczema resolved and he was sleeping so much better withing days after we switched.
Ruth is such a professional and has such a great rapport with kids. My baby doesn't want to let her go when we pick him up at the end of the day! He is happy, well fed and well rested. All of her children are content and happy when I visit, no screaming or crying! They are healthy too! Ruth takes very good care of the space used for the children, and they have outside time each day. She even occasionally sends pictures which is such a gift!
We love her and cannot imagine our life without her. You would be lucky to have her help with taking care of your baby!
Ruth is very patient and loving. My little girl starts at 6 month old and has been happy there. She is my only child and now she has a loving care provider and some 'siblings' outside home. Everyday when she enters Ruth's door, she completely forgets about me and happily joins the kids there. Ruth carries her often and even carries her to sleep since she needs to be hug during sleep in daytime. She also eats more with Ruth. I know she is well taken care of at Ruth's.
Although learning is not important for small babies (love and care are more important), I am glad that my baby has a good learning environment there as well. Ruth teaches her how to hold bottles, how to stand up, potty train in the future, and they read every day (which is important to me). They speak both Spanish and English. Research shows that kids develop language sensitivity before 2 year old, so accessing to more languages at this young age goes to a long way.
Overall I am sure your child will be happy with Ruth too. :)
When I would drop my daughter off in the mornings, I knew when I was at work she was being well taken care of, she had a good meal, and an awesome environment.
Due to my current work schedule ( I will temporarily be deployed out of the area) my daughter will have to be withdrawn and taken care of by my parents, and though she will be in good hands with my parents, it saddens me tremendously to have to leave Ms. Ruth. She was truly a blessing in our families life, and most importantly my daughter's life. I know that no matter what I will keep a close relationship with Ms. Ruth, because she is such an amazing person.
I strongly recommend if you are looking for the best in home day care for your child, you contact Ms. Ruth, her in-home child care is with NO DOUBT, a home away from home.... That is exactly how I felt when my daughter attended her in home day care. We will really miss her, but will definitely keep in touch.
From the first time we met Ruth and toured her home, we knew we had found someone very special! Our daughter felt comfortable with Ruth right away, and we were impressed by the clean, organized, fun environment she had created for the kids. The indoor learning and play area is neat and stocked with stimulating toys and books, and there's a beautiful outdoor space with age-appropriate play equipment.
I feel secure leaving my daughter with Ruth every day because I know she's being nurtured, taught, and well fed! Ruth consistently demonstrates a patient and kind demeanor with the children. She also keeps them on a consistent schedule each day for meals, play, teaching time, naps, etc. I love the way Ruth provides healthy homemade meals and snacks, and I appreciate that both English and Spanish are spoken in the home.
Ruth communicates with me daily about my daughter's progress, activities, and behavior. She possesses a great deal of knowledge and insight about children and their development. Ruth has been a valuable resource to me as a first-time parent, and I am extremely thankful to her for the excellent care she provides to my child. I recommend that anyone looking for childcare in Round Rock contact Ruth to find out for themselves what an extraordinary service she provides!
She feeds the kids different healthy meals, reads, sings, plays, and speaks Spanish with them. She communicates very well with me every day. She has a very clean, safe, and organized home.
Ruth has been the most wonderful day care provider for my daughter and I trust her 100%. I have the choice of taking my daughter to the day care provider that my employer provides and say about $400 a month. However I choose not to because my daughter is so happy at Ruth's and I have a piece of mind. I would recommend her to anyone.
It eases my mind, so much, to know that my children are with someone that treats them like her own children. My daughter lights up when she sees Miss Ruth.
I recommend Ruth's ABC Childcare anyday. With Ruth you know your children are getting the love and attention growing kids need.
I simply cannot say enough about Ruth and what she has meant to me and my son, Aiden. My son started going to Ruth when he was just a few months old - he is now just over a year. I am a first time mom and have a hard time trusting anyone with my little man. When my son is with Ruth, I don't have a worry in the world as I know he is being well taken care of and getting the upmost love he deserves. I constantly ask her for advice/next steps I should be taking with my little one. She is a true expert and professional.
This is obviously evidence of our deep trust in Ruth to care for my son. She truly treats him as if he was her own and she shares such a special bond with him individually. Ruth has done so much more than merely supervise Aiden. She has taught my son how to crawl, walk, clap, dance, point, drink out of a Sippy cup, blow kisses and be gentle with others. These are just a few things. Even these small things such as clapping, may sound so little...but with a mom who works and travels such as myself, it is nice to have someone fill in the gaps as Ruth has done.
In addition to the child care she provides, Ruth prepares healthy meals for the children - breakfast, lunch and two snacks. When Aiden was under a year, she obviously had to feed him baby food (in which I provided), but now she provides him with all meals as he has moved on to solids. She reads the children books and has a large back yard for them to run and play. She is also very thoughtful, and has the children create crafts for Mother's day, Father's day, Halloween etc... These are always fun to get when you have a little one.
My husband and I are thinking of having our second baby soon so we can be sure to have Ruth as our caregiver. I highly recommend Ruth's ABC care for your child care needs. I know that your child would love her as much as mine does, and that you would never be disappointed in her services. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of further questions.
