Little Tykes Home Daycare is great! Our daughter will be turning 4 this month and had been attending Little Tykes since she was 1 1/2. We have kept her with Anais and Little Tykes because of the excellent, holistic care that is provided. Our daughter communicates very well and I believe is well-prepared for school. She also learns manners and healthy habits, and most importantly has fun in a safe and nurturing environment. We love Anais and Little Tykes Home Daycare, and so does our daughter!
Natalie is the second of our children to attend Little Tykes Home Daycare, and Anais' focus on positive reinforcement, learning at every opportunity, and truly listening to the feedback from the children themselves has created an environment that encourages exploration and rapid progress.
In addition to the personal care that Anais and her staff bring to the Little Tykes Day Care, the facilities and equipment there are appropriate, attractive and well thought out. The indoor toys encourage active play, and there is a large backyard with safe playground equipment. Anais and her husband Chris are both active and fit, and this translates to the types of activities that the children do throughout the day. If you are interested in a day care where the children get plenty of exercise, Little Tykes Day Care is for you.
I would be remiss in describing the Little Tykes Day Care without talking about the fantastic field trips that the kids go on every week. Anais has a small bus full of car seats that she uses to transport the children to parks, libraries, the Children's Discovery Museum, Happy Hollow, and other wonderful places around San Jose. Children's brains grow when they experience new things, and these field trips have done as much as anything to stimulate and develop our children. I don't know of any other day care that provides these kinds of outings with such regularity.
Last but certainly not least are the 'Parent's Nights Out'. Once a month Anais offers to keep the kids until 10 PM so that the parents can enjoy a night together alone. It is easy to get so caught up in taking care of the little ones that we sometimes forget to work on our relationships with our significant others, and this night out allows us to take a little time and focus on us. It is admirable that Anais recognizes how important this is and provides this service.
For these reasons and many more (food provided, snacks provided, arts and crafts materials provided, show and tell, etc., etc.) I highly recommend the Little Tykes Day Care and Anais Bueno. There is no better choice for helping to develop a well-rounded, intelligent, active child.
