I started out in my profession as an Assistant teacher, eventually moving up to Lead Teacher in the Corporate Child Care field. I was there for more than 10 years. I loved what I did in the education/child care field; but wanted to take what I truly enjoyed doing down to a smaller scale. When the opportunity came in 2013, I said good-bye to the corporate world and said "Hello" to Family Child Care. I received my license in August, 2013. I am continuing to teach a combination of the corporate-level curriculum that I found to be most beneficial for comprehensive learning while still maintaining the guidelines set by the State of California.
I have been teaching/caring for children in my home now for over 6 years! I love what I do! We have a lot of fun. Right now, I have Toddlers and Pre-K enrolled. We have been learning the basics starting with the alphabet, numbers, colors, various themes, outside play, and our favorite of celebrating various Holidays/Seasons. As they get older, we will gradually progress to Phonics, Reading, Writing, Arithmetic, with more advanced/challenging curriculum. Currently, I have been incorporating these topics by teaching through play, as well as doing a "Circle Time" - type daily lesson plans. Our meals/snacks are Family Style - where we all sit down together at the table to eat. I offer Breakfast, AM snack, Lunch, and a PM snack time.
I am fully licensed with State Clearance. I have my Associate's degree in Child Development and Educational Studies. My child care is licensed for 6 weeks old to 10 years old. I am being fully certified in Infant/Pediatric/Adult CPR/First Aid, Health & Safety certified. I am affiliated with the National Association of Family Child Care (NAFCC); Children's Home Society of Orange County (CHS); the City of Irvine; and Orange County Association for the Education of Young Children (OCAEYC). I can also take CalWorks on a case-by-case basis.
I currently have children under 24 months old enrolled; however, one of my children will be turning 2 years old in a few months.
I also have back-up teachers on-call for when I am out ill, doctors' appointments, vacations, etc.
My hours are 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday; will be closed some days due to holidays, etc. Please inquire for more information

Tania's daycare has been an invaluable asset to our family. Our son started at her home around 7 months old and has continued until 3 years of age. As an infant starting out, Tania provided us a listing of his daily activities to include all times he had a bottle, food, diaper change, or nap. This was great to see his daily schedule. She also provides photos during the day through text, as often as the parents want, to see how your child is doing. As your child gets older the daycare adapts to the child's current needs. As a baby they work on fine motor skills, and as a toddler they work on colors, letters and shapes as well as arts and crafts. Tania also does a great job of working to try and potty train your child once they are ready, and is good about getting them into undies and pull ups and constantly having them use the potty. The daycare also provides milk (for 1yr+), breakfast, snacks and fruits. The families pack a lunch to bring for their child but because the daycare is in her home she is able to provide the children additional food if for some reason they won't eat their lunch or they need something to supplement what was brought (like ketchup!). She really takes a genuine interest in each child and their personal development and really cares for all of them as if they were her own. The daycare is clean and very well kept and our son loves to go there. On weekends he is constantly asking when he can go back again and see Ms. Tania. Additionally, we have also had Tania come to our home to baby sit on the weekends and have also left our son at her home overnight when we have had to go out of town, and more recently, when we were in the hospital for the birth of our second child. So we trust her with our child implicitly. We are moving across country soon and we are disappointed we won't be able to have our second child also attend Tania's daycare. We cannot recommend her enough and feel as if she is a member of our family.

Honestly to us, Donya and her daughters are like our families. We sent our son to her daycare when he's only 5 months. In the beginning we were worried and not sure if it's a right decision. However Donya's extra efforts every single day made us feel it's the best decision we've ever made. Our son has been staying in her daycare for 1 year and 5 months, and we would even think about leaving if we don't have to move. She's always so kind and caring about all the kids like her own, thanks to her my son learns a lot since so little, he says hello and bye to everyone he meets! Highly recommend her daycare to everyone! And we'll miss her.

My daughter has been at Itsy Bitsy Daycare for a year and a half now. We transitioned to Itsy Bitsy Daycare when my daughter was 11 months old and have never regretted it. Ms. Yesica truly cares for all her children. She is warm and loving, and provides structure and routine, just what babies and toddlers need! She takes her children to the park and on walking trips. With toddlers, she engages them with fun activities such as arts and crafts and also implements circle time, teaching them colors, shapes, numbers, letters and sounds through song and play. Ms. Yesica provides breakfast, lunch, and dinner and is consistent about nap time. When my daughter was younger she had a solid morning and afternoon nap schedule at daycare. Now she sleeps a consistent 2-3 hours in the afternoon. My now two year old, loves going to daycare to see Ms. Yesica and her friends. She is always so happy when I come to pick her up. Lately, she hasn't wanted to leave because she's having too much fun. What more could a momma ask for? Did I mention she sends picture updates throughout the day?!
