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

My child was with Donya starting at 5 months old and was in her care for 2 years. We trusted Donya 100% with our daughter never having to worry about her care when we were at work. Donya is a very loving and nurturing individual and she treats her students with love and care. She is constantly celebrating holidays with the kids, birthdays, takes them to the park, play in the backyard, and more. My daughter was always happy to go to daycare in the morning to see Donya. I recommend her to any family looking for a loving environment for their kids they will be in great hands.

Ms. Yesica at Itsy Bitsy Daycare is simply the best. We moved to Irvine in the middle of the pandemic and were seeking care for our children, ages 1 and 3 years old. We must have unknowingly saved the best for last! I had interviewed three other daycare providers before finding Itsy Bitsy. My husband and I were able to interview with Ms. Yesica right away and didn't walk out the door without registering our babies for her care. I just had that feeling that she was the perfect one to watch our girls. Ms. Yesica is compassionate and kind. She loves all of the kids as though they are her own. She becomes so in tune with their needs and feelings, that she can tell me when she thinks my kids might be coming down with something, or needing an earlier bedtime, or just having an all-around good day. Throughout each day, the children were fed breakfast, lunch, and snacks. Our kids stayed for dinner each evening so that they could dine with their friends. I thought I would be sad about this because I love evenings with my kids, but it worked out perfectly with my work schedule and became something I looked forward to. On days when they ran out of time, Ms. Yesica would pack to-go bags for the kids with their dinner in them and they LOVED that. Some days she would take them to the park in her community. They would play in the sand, go on the slide, and enjoy the walk to and from her home. Every day, they have circle time and the kids all learn various things depending on their age and levels of learning. Our girls came out of Ms. Yesica's care after only 8 months because of our cross-country move, but their new school comments on how much our almost-2-year-old talks, and how advanced our oldest (almost 4) is in all of her lessons. If we could move Ms. Yesica to our new home, we definitely would! Her home is very clean and well kept. The kids have cribs or cots to nap on each day. You guys... she bought each of my girls their own security blankets and had my youngest's embroidered with Ms. Yesica's nickname for her. How sweet is that?! My girls call their new teachers "the new Ms. Yesica" and I love that they remember her, even with such young minds. We truly were so lucky to have found Itsy Bitsy. If you're considering Ms. Yesica's Itsy Bitsy Daycare, you have found a gem, and I suggest you jump at the opportunity to have your kids cared for by her as quickly as you can! :) ** This review has been cross-posted.
