I sent my daughter to Mana’s daycare in Irvine CA , when she was 18mo old. It was her first time in day care and naturally I was very nervous. I wasn’t sure how my daughter will fit in and what to expect. Mana was absolutely wonderful. She exceeded all my expectations and then some. Her house is warm and clean and very welcoming to the kids. More importantly, Mana is nurturing and kind. She provides home-cooked meals for the kids and healthy snacks and many educational programs. Mana moved to a different location, further from my house and reluctantly, I had to move my daughter to a closer daycare. I will always remember Mana as my daughter’s first daycare, the way she cared and nurtured the kids and how she truly loved them. My daughter loved going there in the morning and would have hard time to leave every afternoon. I highly recommend Mana and her daycare.
Mana is indisputably talented in dealing with children. Not only is she well trained but she has a love for children and a natural gift in caring for them……… Our daughter has been with her for over a year now and our son will be joining her group soon because we are so impressed with the excellent quality childcare that she provides. Not only does Mana provide the daily necessities, she goes above and beyond what is necessary. She cooks wonderful meals for the children and constantly rotates books and toys to provide age-appropriate stimuli for the children. Outdoor activities are a normal part of their routine. The crafts that our daughter comes home with demonstrate Mana’s creativity and emphasis on allowing the children to also be creative. Finally, my daughter is becoming quite adroit at several cognitive skills that I know are taught and practiced under Mana’s direction. We are so pleased to see that Mana provides such well-rounded care. We leave our daughter happy in the morning and find her happy when we arrive. This is so assuring for us as working parents and we are so grateful to Mana.
