Happy Garden Daycare (El Cerrito, CA)

Berkeley Parents Network > Reviews > Preschools & Daycare > Happy Garden Daycare (El Cerrito, CA)



June 2009

My son just graduated from an excellent home daycare where he has been for almost 2 years. Evelyne Peterson (Chinese name Wen-Hsiang) runs the Happy Garden Daycare out of her home on Everett Street in El Cerrito. She and her helpers are enthusiastic, caring and attentive to the children. The day is structured with storytime, craft activities, nap and lots of playtime. Evelyne has always been flexible the few times when we had to be late. Our son speaks fluent Mandarin now, a language that neither my wife or I speak. He also became potty trained there. Evelyne is bilingual. Some of her staff only speak Chinese and our son can understand my Mandarin speaking coworkers. He outgrew this daycare and is now in a preschool. Evelyne's home has a small backyard which ideally would be larger, but it is very safe with a high wooden fence around it. Her phone #s are 510-388-1537/510-965-9461. She accepts part time/full time.

My son's home-based, Chinese (Mandarin) language daycare now has openings for 2-5 year olds as he and another student are leaving for pre-school. My son has been there for 1.5 years and has grown very close to the main teacher, Eveline, and the two assistants, who are all very competent, warm, energetic, and wonderful with the children. As the children have grown, Eveline has done a great job adapting the daily activities to keep them interested, including gardening, going for walks, art projects, etc. They recently moved to a very nice, spacious new house. The kids have all learned a lot of Chinese, even those who don't speak it at home. Please contact Happy Garden at 510-965-9461/message or happygardenchildcare@hotmail.com, or email me if you have questions.

My son's home-based Mandarin/English daycare now has openings for 2-5 year olds as he and another student are leaving for pre-school. It is located in a very nice, spacious house in a safe neighborhood. My son has been with HappyGarden for 1.5 years and has grown very close to the head teacher, Eveline, and the two assistants, who are all very competent, warm, energetic, and wonderful with the children. As the children have grown, Eveline has done a great job adapting the daily activities to keep them interested, including gardening, going for walks, art projects, etc as well as teaching them Mandarin. My son is now 100% fluent even though we do not speak Mandarin at home. He can even read some Chinese. Eveline speaks both English and Mandarin and is VERY easy to communicate with. She has been a preschool teacher for many years and has a lot of experience. I cannot speak highly enough of her and her daycare. She is a very special teacher and we feel so lucky to have found her. Please contact Eveline at Happy Garden at 510-965-9461/message or happygardenchildcare@hotmail.com, or email me if you have questions.
