I'm planting a seed
I hope it will grow
I'll water it carefully
And one day I know
That something will happen
Just wait and see
That tiny little seed
Will grow into a tree.

We are a licensed Family Childcare Home (or Home-Daycare) located in the beautiful city of Ventura, CA. We are near the 126 freeway just off of Kimball Rd.
We offer full-time, part-time and drop-in child care services in my home to the East Ventura community for children ages 6 weeks of age until they enter kindergarten (around age 5). We also provide occasional evening, and weekend child care services (depending on availability) for that special date-night, errand run etc.
Children are welcome to join us in our comfortable home environment setting with low child-to-adult ratio (1:8) that allows individualized learning experiences with each child. While we all practice kindness, responsibility, self-sufficiency, social skills, tolerance and acceptance we provide activities designed to teach children Preschool and Kindergarten preparedness skills in a fun way.
