If you are lucky enough to have Joy as your daycare provider, then you scored!! Joy cared for our son full time, 5 days a week from the time he was 4 months old to when he was 14 months old. We were SO sad to lose her when we moved from California to Washington. Finding a caregiver for our first kid was such a stressful experience for us as we had never gone through it before, and once we established care with Joy we were so relieved to have found her. Her in-home daycare is thoughtfully set up, pleasant, and clean. It's stocked with great learning toys, and she does fun activities with the kids every day, including outdoor walks. We also appreciated the daily logs she kept and all the pictures she would send us. Joy is super communicative and has a very calming presence. I cannot recommend her enough. 10 stars!
