My son is about to start preschool and we're so sad to have to leave Miss Aleyda! My son is three and has been going here for about 1.5 years. After having a bad experience at another care facility, I was scared to try somewhere else but I have nothing but great things to say about Miss Aleyda. She has helped my son grow so much and supported us with major life events, including potter training! My son loves going to daycare and often asks to see Miss Aleyda on the weekend. He always has fun and has learned so much. Her house always smells of delicious food and I'm sure my kid is eating better than I am! As a working mom, it's so comforting to know my son is safe, loved, and thriving. I recommend Miss Aleyda without hesitation.

We have been going to Santa Margarita Home Daycare since September (my daughter just turned 1). I feel very comfortable leaving my daughter there while I go to work. Aleyda is very positive and helpful. You can tell she loves children very much. Her outdoor play area is amazing -- especially since my daughter loves being outside. She always is thinking about the safety of children. I looked for a LONG time for an in home daycare that I felt was safe for my daughter. I am so glad I found this place.

Santa Margarita Home Daycare was the best! Both my kids went there and I would highly recommend this place to any of my friends or family for them to have their children go there. Aleyda is reliable, always positive, sweet and most importantly she is amazing with the kids. I new everyday that my kids were in a safe and loving environment. They would come home happy and tell me all about their days and their new songs they learned and about shapes and colors! I can't say enough good things about this daycare! Simply the best!

Santa Margarita Day Care, I will like to know why you addressed every point that Jillian W mentioned but the one that was the most important out of all. Why were they children sleeping tight up into their carseats? You never denied the fact that she mentioned you had children sleeping in carseats. I am glad I read Jillian W review. I hope parents are not blinded and really pay attention to the kids signals.

To Gloria C. I don t know you, we have never met. You are judging me on something I did not do. Please remove this post as is defamation of character.

My daughter, who is almost three, has been going to Miss Aleyda for almost a year now and we have nothing but positive things to say about her daycare. She is very sweet and always makes sure that my little one is well fed, tidy, and happy. She even does my toddlers unruly hair on a daily basis. It's been heartwarming to see how much my daughter has grown to love and bond with Miss Aleyda and she looks forward to going to 'school' every day. In addition, Miss Aleyda assisted my husband and I with potty training, giving us daily updates on my daughter's progress. I would highly recommend this daycare to anyone looking for a nurturing home environment that is run by someone who truly loves what they do. Having my little one with someone I trust made my transition of going back to work that much easier.

Ms. Aleyada took excellent care of my son for 8 years. Aleyda took extra care and time daily to make sure my son was happy, healthy, and well taken care of. Aleyda went out of her way by being flexible when my schedule changed or I needed "emergency" daycare. Her home was always clean and well organized and provided healthy meals for my son. Aleyda provided a learning curriculum along with fun and games in her daily routine. My son enjoyed going to Aleyda's house every day and would come home telling me how much fun he'd had that day. The only reason we left was because he was getting too old for daycare. We will always cherish the years Aleyda took care of our son. She will forever be part of our family. As a mom and teacher, I highly recommend Aleyda for your childcare needs. She has been an integral part of our lives.
We sent both our children to Santa Margarita Day care and we very pleased. It's so nice to know that your children are safe and well taken care of while you are at work all day. Both children attending since they were infants and stayed until preschool. We would recommend this day care for anyone looking for at home child care.

We are so fortunate to have found Santa Margarita Day Care. My son has been there from 5 months old until next week when he is off to preschool. I could not have found a more loving and kind person to care for my son. She provides meals, teaches the kids, has a wonderful backyard and a very clean home. Most of all she truly loves the children she cares for and the kids LOVE her as well. She is the best!

We were blessed to find Santa Margarita Daycare for our son three years ago. I was nervous about starting him in daycare because he was a colicky and fussy baby with acid reflux. The challenge didn't scare her as she had plenty of experience in childcare. My son has thrived in her home daycare for over three years. I wanted a home daycare enviroment for him and it was a great choice. She genuinely loves all of the children she watches and you can see that their families love her just as much. Most children there have older siblings who also went to her house. She includes healthy meals and keeps her home very clean which keeps your children healthy! Her home is safe, fun and my son loves to go spend the day with his "friends". I could go on and on about what a great daycare she provides and I would highly recommend her to anyone! She is the best and we have been so lucky to have her taking care of our son.

If you are looking for loving, safe, and nurturing childcare, this is place for you. We have always had our children in a small, in-home daycare environment and loved it. We wanted someone closer to our home, instead of closer to our work and we found this amazing place. Our daughter attended Santa Margarita Day Care for about 2 years. She always ran to the front door and was always eager to play with her friends. She developed lasting friendships and talks about the fun she had. From a parent's perspective, we loved it because she was healthy (they did a great job of not spreading germs), the house was always clean, they supported us as we went through potty training, meals were nutritious, and she was well rested and clean when we picked her up. There is a gated outdoor play area in the backyard and lots of toys inside, so kids never leave the home but never run out of fun things to do. There was also structured story time and songs so my daughter came home singing away! I cannot say enough wonderful things. If I had another child that needed childcare, this would be my number one choice.

We have been so blessed to find Santa Margarita Daycare. She has taken care of all 3 of our kids and they have all thrived and loved it there. Two of my kids have been there since they were 8 weeks old, so she is pretty much part of our family. It is hard to have to leave your kids and go to work, but I feel at ease and comfortable every time I drop them off. They run into the house every time, excited to play with their friends. She keeps her home very clean and provides nutritious meals. But above all, she loves on the kids so much and I couldn't ask for a person to watch them.
Dear Prospective Parents,
After finding Santa Margarita Daycare on, My husband and I chose to remove our son from the very large daycare center he was at (where he was constantly getting sick from being around so many children) and moved him over to Santa Margarita Daycare. We could not be more pleased with our decision. She provides a loving and safe environment where our son has thrived. Coming from the large daycare center where my son was getting sick almost once a month, it's has been such a relief to us that he has not been sick once in 7 months, since moving him over. She also does a great job providing the children a clean environment and nutritious and yummy lunches that my son (who is a picky eater) never has a problem gobbling up. Education is important to us and so we were thrilled when we learned they do daily lessons with the children teaching them fundamentals, like colors, shapes, ABC's, numbers and also doing circle time and songs with them.
It melts my heart every morning when I drop him off, he opens his arm for her to take him and give him hugs. We have had nothing but great experiences and feel very blessed to have found her.
