I was so anxious about leaving my child for the first time, until I met Deva. Her gentle nature and warm, welcoming home environment put me right at ease. Our daughter went from staying home with me to full-time with absolutely no problem in Deva's care. She was excited to leave the house in the morning and in such a good mood when I went to pick her up, sometimes she didn't want to leave. Deva communicated well about nap, eating, and activities they did each day. I highly recommend La Playita Azul for your infant and toddler daycare needs!
