Our family moved from the East Coast when my husband accepted a job at
CAL and we were quite nervous about finding good quality childcare. Gail
Pavlosky, owner and director of Galoshes Family Daycare, has completely
changed our prior conception of home-based daycares and eliminated all our
fears about finding a good place for our daughter. Upon meeting Gail, my
husband immediately knew she was the provider for us. She has a natural gift
with children, is sensitive to each child's needs and has the ability to meet
them where they are. She is kind, calm, competent and a valuable resource
for our parenting questions. While the kids range in age from 3 mos to 3 yrs,
Gail develops and implements a curriculum that touches each child. She is
creative in her developmentally appropriate approaches to social, emotional,
and intellectual learning. She offers healthy and wholesome meals and has
introduced our daughter to many new foods. Gail employs the most warm
and caring staff, including her daughter Hannah Pavlosky, who are vital to her
team. They love our daughter as if she was their own and our daughter has
blossomed in their care. I can wholeheartedly recommend Galoshes Family
Daycare and my husband says "She's brilliant!"
We moved to CA in March 2012, had come from a formal daycare center, and were a bit skeptical of home-based programs. We visited several options when we moved to El Cerrito and found Galoshes through a referral. We were hooked immediately. Galoshes is run by a very warm and caring provider, Gail, out of her home. Gail has a degree in childhood development and has been running a daycare for almost 20 years. She is also a mother of four wonderful children of her own.
As first time parents we often ask Gail for advice on
discipline, eating, and development. Not only is Gail a
wealth of knowledge and experience, she cares for each child
like they were her own. Our son was 6 months old when he
started with Galoshes and was not quite crawling yet.
Within 3 months, he was walking, much more verbal, and very
interested in engaging with other children. Not only did we
see a developmental leap immediately from joining Galoshes,
our son was obviously in love with the daycare, Gail and her
assistants, and the other children. Our son gets excited
when we pull up to her house and is never ready to leave at
the end of the day.
