Lola And Friends Childcare Services

1756 Plaza Ct, Mountain View, CA

Costimate: $367/wk

Hello and Welcome!

We started Lola and Friends Childcare Services (L.A.F.) as a way to provide the same kind of warm and loving support we received from this community back when our daughter was much younger and we were new residents in Mountain View. We truly believe in the African proverb that "it takes a village to raise a child" so it is our hope that we can become a part of your "village" and support team as we work together to raise your child to become a kind, loving, compassionate and productive member of our global community.

Our mission at L.A.F. is to provide the best quality of care for your child. We are dedicated to providing a warm, nurturing, caring and fun place where each child can develop in a safe surrounding just like "home away from home".

We are licensed as a Family Home Day Care provider under State of California, Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division in San Jose, CA. We have been cleared by US Department of Justice to have no sexual abuse or criminal records of any kind. We are trained in CPR, First Aid, Health and Safety in addition to Child Nutrition and we are certified volunteers for the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) for the City of Mountain View.

We have approximately 30 years of childcare experience between us, either as parents ourselves, taking care of the children in our large extended families, volunteering or being a childcare provider for children of all ages.

We also provide healthy daily Breakfast, Morning Snack, Lunch and Afternoon Snack based on the food guidelines issued by the State of California.

We would love to host a site visit for you and your child so please do not hesitate to reach out.

We look forward to welcoming all of you to our home.

We have been signed up with Lola and Friends since the end of 2019 and cannot recommend Johanna highly enough. Even before our son started there she put the time in to get to know us as a family unit, to understand our priorities and make sure we all communicate clearly about what's going on with him. He's been going here since he was about 6 months and thrives there. Johanna is the kind of caregiver who is extremely loving towards the little ones and lets them explore and play while providing a very safe environment. She is also meticulous in organization and keeps us up-to-date with daily logs and a steady stream of photos and videos of our little one. We feel so lucky to have her look after our baby!

2132 Sierra Ventura Drive, Los Altos, CA

Starting at $1500/mo

We believe that providing loving, attentive and educational care in first 5 years of a child's life is the stepping stone for a bright & happy future. By providing high quality childcare in an intimate and family oriented center, we form a bond with each child in our care. We truly love helping them develop a lifelong love of learning & curiosity about the world around them. By nurturing their social, emotional, educational, and developmental needs, your child is sure to thrive and succeed at Over The Rainbow.

The owner has a Master's Degree in Education & the qualifications for being the director in a preschool. We have a low ratio of children to teachers to ensure the best quality care possible. By providing a balance of structure and play, your child will thrive and grow.

Our program presents learning concepts through hands-on exploration of the world around us; introducing academic and social concepts within a non-competitive and positive environment. We focus on play based, child-centered activities where your child's emotional needs, education, and happiness come first. Life skills (zipping, buttoning, tidying up and learning to feed themselves. ), arts & crafts, seasonal/holiday themes, music & movement, drama/storytelling, math concepts/counting, language and vocabulary are some of the concepts we teach.

*A balance of nurturing, playtime, and learning each day
*Daily small group activities that help boost your child's social skills
*Family communication, including daily updates to keep you informed
*Learning areas focused on dramatic play, mathematics, creative arts, language, and sensory exploration
*Age-appropriate activities and materials that develop confidence, self-esteem, and a love of learning

Healthy/Well Balanced Meals
Healthy food & good nutrition fuels your child's busy days. All of the food is provided in the monthly cost. We prepare meals using fresh & healthy ingredients with your child s well-being in mind. I will encourage your son/daughter to try a variety of fruits and vegetables and we use seasonal, organic (when possible) and locally sourced ingredients as much as we can.
