We feel so blessed to have had our daughter with Miss Lourdes and her amazing loving staff for over these last three years. We look forward to maintaining a lifelong friendship with them. During this time of getting to know Miss Lourdes and her staff, we have appreciated her level of professionalism and talents working with our daughter, helping her to develop her emotional, social and academic skills. Miss Lourdes helped to create a very successful routine for our daughter. Jaydee (our daughter) was always happy to go to “school” and just that gave me a peace of mind as a mother every single day! Not too long ago Jaydee asked me with a big smile, I am going to school today? Lol
Each day Miss Lourdes has a bunch of fun activities for the kids such as baking cookies, preparing their own pizzas, gardening, swimming in the kiddie pool, harvesting corn and tomatoes, doing artwork. These activities have been wonderful for our daughter’s development and allowed her to be outgoing and confident. Our daughter have proven to be comfortable in almost any setting much because of these great activities. Miss Lourdes has taught our daughter to appreciate little things like watering plants and sharing and caring for younger kids. Throughout the day Miss Lourdes engaged with our daughter speaking to her in Tagalog, singing songs and telling stories. I personally love that fact that my kid was expose to more than two languages.
Overall we highly recommend Duarte Family Daycare to a family that values education, appreciates initiative and enjoys engagement with the person who spends the majority of the day with their child (children). Miss. Lourdes and her staff are very skilled at helping to de-escalate tantrums and many other things, they provide our daughter with coping skills and engage in developing the whole child. Much more than a Daycare, Miss Lourdes and her staff are a perfect combination of a sudo-parent or grandmother. Our daughter loves her. If you are looking for an amazing Daycare you should definitely considered Duarte Family Daycare.
