Lake Forest Family Daycare

22832 Aspan St., Lake Forest, CA

Starting at $280/wk

May has been working with children for two decades now and has made taking care of them her lifelong passion. She has a degree in child development, has worked at college campus daycares, centers, at home family daycares, and eventually opened up her own family daycare in 2015 in San Marcos. After five years of wonderful experiences, she moved to Lake Forest and wishes to continue her passion at her second home daycare. She has immense respect for both parents and their children equally, acknowledging the children's' growing individuality. The home provided for her children is kept regularly sanitized multiple ties per day, and she enforces a safe and comfortable learning environment for children to learn to share, be themselves, and grow through positive social interactions, all while having lots and lots of fun.May believes nutrition is as important as education and therefore provides two homemade meals and two snacks every single day, making sure she makes everything with love and care. Since May is a mother herself, she is highly educated on children's nutrition and will make sure all her children at her facility get whole, well rounded meals. She is a certified preschool teacher, CPR and First Aid Trained, and also registered with the YMCA, CPA, CalWorks. Her ultimate goal is the well-being of your child, and her glowing references will definitely prove how committed to that vision she is.

We are now providing overnight care, perfect for parents who are working night shifts. Call us to inquire further!

Both of my kids (age 4 and 2) have been going to May's home daycare since Fall 2020. I feel comfortable that her daycare is licensed and clean. She follows COVID guidelines and wears a mask. Her home is set up like a preschool with plenty of educational toys and an enclosed backyard for outdoor time. Lunch and snacks are provided! My kids enjoy going to May's home daycare together and I see them playing happily when I pick them up at the end of day. I love that May sometimes sends photos and updates of them during the day so I can see what they were doing. My 4 year old sometimes refuses to nap at home, but every time she goes to May's home, she naps for 2+ hours. We are very happy with and thankful for the care that May provides.

Tweety Small Daycare

24922 Muirlands Blvd. Trlr 109, Lake Forest, CA

Starting at $250/wk

Open doors and arms to those from the Children's Home Society of California!

Open in Lake Forest since 2005, I have provided government licensed childcare for families with newborns to 4-5 years old. I love all of my children and believe it is important that they all are receive my full attention and personal supervision so i like to keep our group relatively small but am licensed for a capacity up to 8.

I believe a home daycare should be more than just a place to be while the parents or guardians are a way at work, but a place to learn. In my home daycare I take pride in providing teaching for mathematics, reading and writing English and even Spanish (if you so choose your child to learn). The vast majority of children that leave my daycare to go into kindergarten leave with advanced skills used in school from multiplication to being bilingual. This is all at no extra cost.

Between all of the learning, we like to have fun and work on art projects the children can take home with them. When it's time to eat, we like to have homecooked meals that meat all necessary nutritional guidelines of La Habra Child Development Child Care Food Program while also respecting any dietary restrictions and allergies.

So please, consider Tweety Small Daycare for your childcare needs.

I'm very thankful and lucky we were able to find Liz. She took care of my babies from when they were 8 weeks old to pre-k. They were always so excited to go to Liz's, which gave me peace of mind knowing that they were being well taken care of. The one on one teaching lessons as well as arts and crafts time helped prep my girls for kinder. I love how personable Liz is. During the holidays, she opens her home for some festivities and will even put little surprise shows together with all the kids for the parents! Those were the cutest little performances ever! I highly recommend Liz to anyone that's looking for a home away from home daycare for your kids.

This Daycare is definitely somewhere to consider taking your children to. They are more than just a daycare, they do lots of learning through out the day, such as Circle Time! Which involves learning the days of the week, seasons, months, and even celebrate birthdays for the kiddos! They have been so wonderful to my son, he is always excited to go to "school" and they have made him feel so comfortable and they truly care about the kids needs and always building there confidence. This has helped my son feel good about making new friends and really getting him prepped for preschool!:) I wish my son could stay there forever, because we are really going to miss them once we reach preschool age. -Thankyou Chelsie.
