My daughter attended The Caterpillar Home Daycare when she was 3 yrs old and she learned so much! Natalia is a great teacher and caregiver. She always provided home made meals for lunch and she had a great curriculum. I definitely recommend this daycare if you want a trustworthy and nurturing environment for your child!

Our now 2 year old son has been attending The Caterpillar Home Daycare for over a year and we all love it. Natalia and her assistants exude love, joy, and patience. As parents it provides us a great sense of happiness when he runs to them every morning. We recommend them wholeheartedly!

My son has been with Natalia for a year now and we love it. The ladies are patient, caring, and attentive to his needs. They provide a well rounded and structured day that includes art, music, Spanish, and free play both indoors and out. I feel good leaving him knowing he is in good hands and am always happy to pick him up and hear about his day! Highly recommend.

We sent our daughter here for 2 years from the time she was 12months old until shortly after she turned 3. We had to switch only because we moved out of the Centreville area or else would have kept her there much longer! Natalia and Mirna do a wonderful job nurturing and teaching the children in the home-like environment. They also introduce Spanish so the kids learn some songs/colors/alphabet in Spanish as well as in English. Another big bonus was that lunch/snacks were all provided for which made our mornings much easier to handle. Natalia does a great job in bringing in music teachers/ readers when she can and even takes the kids on local field trips to the zoo/farm/waterpark/etc. This is a wonderful daycare and I'd highly recommend to anyone with babies/toddlers/preschoolers in the Centreville area. Thank you Natalia and Mirna for the hard work you daily put in and for loving and nurturing our daughter so well, we will miss you!

They take care of our infant daughter and do a great job. She comes back happy, and is developing quickly. They let us know about her little quirks and developments and progress each day. What we like about this place is it is small enough that young children of various ages safely interact and communicate with each other, but it's big enough that kids have plenty of space to move around and explore both inside and in the large back yard. Our child's happiness and comfort are always priority, and the positive environment really fosters her growth

We are extremely pleased with Miss Natalia and her staff at the Catepillar Home Daycare. We've been using her services for almost 3 years. They are patient, caring, and seem to really enjoy working with the children. The daycare provides a structured day with regular time for projects, free play, scheduled snack and meals, and nap time. My daughter asks to go to school!

We are very blessed to have found Caterpillar Daycare! Miss Natalia and Miss Mirna genuinely care about each and every child, provide a loving, clean and home-like environment, and keep things orderly and under control at all times. My child has been at Caterpillar since she was just 12 weeks old, and although I was very anxious about leaving her, Natalia put my mind at ease and I know that she is in good hands each and every day. I also credit Natalia for getting my child - who was not a very good sleeper - onto an excellent and dependable nap schedule. I also would note that Natalia is very understanding and accommodating of parents' preferences and has been respectful of our choices even when they have deviated from "the norm". Thank you, Natalia and Mirna, for being such wonderful caretakers!!

I was so excited to find Natalia and her Caterpillar Home Daycare for my son. My husband and I had trouble finding a place we felt was warm and welcoming, which is what we immediately felt upon walking into her home. My son loves Natalia and Ms. Myrna, you can tell as his face lights up with a smile everytime we arrive. They are very attentive to him and I know he is in very good hands when I drop him off. He is only 10 months old but already very active, almost walking and alert and really enjoys playing with the older kids and trying to follow them around. I highly recommend Caterpillar to anyone looking for a provider, you will definitely get the care and attention you are looking for your little one.

My toddler loves her daycare! Natalia and Mirna are very experienced in childcare and take good care of the children and provide a happy, loving, safe and clean environment. They also support the children's growth and development by providing educational and interactive play. Field trips include parks, farms, theaters. Healthy meals are also provide. Natalia(owner) is thoughtful and will work with you to meet your child's individual needs. I am thankful to Caterpillar Daycare for taking care of my precious daughter!...and I highly recommend them.

The Caterpillar Home Daycare is a wonderful place for your child to spend his/her days. Natalia and Myrna are great with the kids--fun and loving with lots of energy; our son loves them both. They have a classroom and activity or arts/crafts time every day with a different theme each week. Natalia has a big fenced back yard with lots of room for the kids to play. They also regularly take the kids on field trips to local parks, farms, puppet shows, and more! In addition, Natalia just completed a large addition to her home providing tons of space for the daycare. And meals/snack are included! We are so glad we found this place on Care.com. It truly is a wonderful, clean, safe, fun, and educational place for your child. I highly recommend it!

We are very happy we found Mrs. Natalia on Care.com! She has been wonderful with our 2 year old! She gives the children fun activities throughout the day and the structure of her daycare is wonderful. We know when we leave our son with her that he is in excellent hands!

My Husband and I are ecstatic that we found Ms.Natalia on Care.com. We could not ask for a better caregiver for our 2 year old daughter, She has been welcoming from the very beginning and truly cares for the children she watches. For Holiday's she takes the time out to make sure they have a party to Celebrate and even makes little treats for them. Every morning when I drop my Daughter off I have peace of mind knowing that she is in great hands and will be very well taken care of. Thank you Ms.Natalia for all that you do!

We started our son with Ms. Natalia in April 2014 and have had a wonderful experience thus far. We moved him out of a center because of the large number of infants and fear that he was not getting the amount of attention that we want him to have. At Ms. Natalia's he receives plenty of attention while also receiving the benefit of socializing with other children; at a healthy and manageable number. She is very responsible and you can tell that she truly cares about all of her children. I remember after meeting her for the first time, my husband and I felt so comfortable with her because her motherly qualities were evident. Her home is very clean and organized and the children behave well. At our son's former center, there were many times that the environment was chaotic and multiple babies were crying; Ms. Natalia's is the exact opposite of that! Our son is very happy with her, always smiling and reaching out for her. We are so happy that we found Ms. Natalia and we look forward to building a stronger relationship with her.

We are so blessed to have found Caterpillar Home Daycare! Our little girl, who is almost 4, has been going here for almost 2 years. Ms. Natalia takes care of our little one as if she is her own. Ms. Natalia always greets us with a smile and open arms, which is so comforting to me. The center is well maintained, clean and organized. My little girl loves the arts/crafts, going for walks to the park and playing outside in the backyard. Ms. Natalia has a fun slide and swings for the kids to play on. I would recommend Caterpillar Home Daycare to anyone. Ms. Natalia and her staff are very professional, compassionate and give excellent care!! We look forward to another great year before we head off to kindergarten! When that time comes it will be very sad given we think of Ms. Natalia as being a part of our family!!!

This place is GREAT! We have an 18 month old. We, like any new parents, were struggling finding the right place and fit for our child. After several visits to both in home daycares and facilities, we agreed upon Caterpillar Home Daycare.

Activities: My son gets to play and do a variety of things, especially OUTSIDE! He plays with balls, water, arts and crafts and other fun games that encourage his imagination. I am always surprised at what toy he is holding or how he knows how to do something new.

Environment: The classroom and area where the kids play is always clean. For having so many kids running around and pulling out toys and books, it is always well kept. The back yard has an AWESOME swing set and slide, my son is swinging almost every time I arrive and enjoying it to the fullest.

Teachers: The teachers there, including Natalia, are wonderful. My son does not take to just anyone and often times when we leave, he is giving multiple kisses and hugs that have been accompanied by tears in the past. All of the teachers are well-instructed by Natalia. My son is ALWAYS cleaned, changed and ready to go when I get there, even if I show up a few minutes early.

Fee: The fee is another major ++++ about Caterpillar Home Daycare. The fact that we get a high level of care, comfort and ease for 1 weekly price helps us out on our own finances. The fee also includes meals! And my son, whom has always eaten homemade food, always finishes her food with ease. The variety is great.

Choosing a daycare is not easy but choosing Natalia's Home Daycare is. She is always positive, professional and completely flexible. We really value her and hope to stay with Caterpillar Home Daycare for a long time!

Thanks for all you do!
