In-home daycare



Serena's Smiling Sun is a Licensed Family Childcare/Daycare located in San Diego, UTC/UC area, California (License # 376628111). It provides care for children newborn to 4 years of age, 5 days a week (or even 2 or 3 days a week. I also accept a daily drop-in if I have availability) from 8:00 AM to 3:30 PM (occasionally other arrangements can be made). I serve warm nutritious meals, snacks, and lunch daily. As required by the State of California -Health and Human Services, Community Care Licensing Division, for my license I am certified in the First Aid / CPR.

I am bilingual in Italian and English, and a happy mother of two wonderful girls (17 and 19 years old). I have a degree in Early Childhood Education, and I have several years of experience working with young children. Having a family Childcare/Daycare is the realization of a dream for me. Caring for children has always been my passion!

My Childcare/Daycare provides a wonderful atmosphere for your child, in a clean, spacious, and well-equipped environment, where the children learn while having fun. I strongly believe in the power of play and encourage each of the children in my care to spend their day learning through play! I provide a setting that allows each child to grow to his or her full potential. We will fill the day with many exciting activities. Everything from arts and crafts, storytime, music, outdoor playtime, and various learning activities. I also have a safe fenced backyard where we will play every day (weather permitting).

Please contact me if interested or if you have any questions. Thanks!
