As a first time parent, I had no idea how truly daunting finding childcare is. I asked friends and neighbors what they did and three families from three completely different sectors of my life told me about Mangala. One was a family that now had teenage daughters and the others were just about to age out and start kindergarten. At the moment, my son was too young to start there so I looked at other places, but something my mother said kept me coming back to Mangala's. "If I lived close to you , I'd be watching my grandchild, but Mangala is the next best thing to leaving him with family." She was absolutely right. The children really get individualized, tailored attention. Her approach to teaching, behavior correction, affection etc is all based on how she observes each child's growing personality. She and her assistant really get to know each child's sensitivities, changing needs and interests. Knowing children that had "graduated" from her facility, some with special needs, special dietary considerations, medical issues etc, I knew that she really understood how provide for children at varying levels and keep parents informed and included. My now- kindergartner gets a lot of comments on how much he shows empathy and awareness for the needs of others, and I attribute that to Mangala and the example she set for socialization and building relationships.
