July 2014

I highly recommend Binh Nguyen & her high quality, affordable family daycare located in Piedmont just off Grand Ave in Oakland (near Ace). Binh & her assistant have cared for my son since she was 5 mo old. (He's now 14 mo). One of the best aspects is the low child to provider ratio (2:1). They only take 4 kids max & only infants up to 2 yrs old. Binh operates in Vietnamese & English. Hours are 8:00 am- 5:00 pm, Mon-Fri. Binh provides a wonderful environment in her bright, sunny, and calm home. The day care area is very clean with hardwood floors (w/ mats) & lots of windows. They take the kids out in the back for fresh air daily. They are very loving, attentive, and my son gets so excited every morning when we arrive. Scheduled naps are part of the routine, and they can help your child get used to a regular naptime if s/he doesn't have one yet! Your child will be loved, clean, well cared for, and happy at the end of the day. Binh has an opening for 1 Full Time space starting in July. Call her! You won't regret it! Natalie

I would like to recommend Binh's daycare for anyone looking for infant/early toddler care. My daughter has been going to her since she was 4 months old and is now a happy almost 2 yo. Binh and her assistant Quanh are very attentive and look after 4 children at a time. I'll never forget how my daughter, at a little over 1 yo, would walk up to her home and fall into an embrace with them. My daughter also eats and naps more with them than with me. They work to help her development with ever changing toys and they keep me informed of what she masters or is still working on. They also regularly let the children play outside or take them for short walks around the nice neighborhood. My daughter is a very picky eater and they have been patient and inventive with ways to get her to eat. I am most grateful for their care and love. Binh primarily speaks Vietnamese but is easy to communicate with. She will have openings in July 2014, hours are M-F 8a-5p. Judy

Binh Nguyen and her assistant, Vivien have cared for my daughter since she was 5.5 months old (nearly a year now).

Binh typically cares for 4 kids, all 2 years old or younger. Since we started using Binh, she has always had an assistant Vivien, which makes for the best adult to child ratio we found.

The kids play in one room and sometimes go outside. When there are older more mobile kids, Binh will take the two oldest kids to the library for story time on Wednesdays while Vivien watches the two younger ones.

My daughter loves going there each morning.

Binh and Vivien both provide a lot of love for the kids. They sing with the kids, play with them, have toys and books that they rotate in/out regularly. They make sure our daughter gets enough to eat, by offering the meal and snacks that we bring, throughout the day. tmarcia

I would like to recommend Binh Nguyen and her daycare, Kim's Home Daycare. Binh and her assistant, Vivien, have cared for my daughter for the past year and a half, since she was six months old. Binh and Vivien provide a wonderful environment for babies and toddlers, with lots of loving attention and age-appropriate activities, including music, reading, trips to the park, etc. My daughter has thrived under Binh and Vivien's care, and I could not have asked for a better daycare experience for her. Binh's house has truly been like a second home for my daughter. Kim's Home Daycare is open M-F, 8 am to 6 pm, and has one opening available now and one opening available August 1. Please feel free to contact me directly or contact Binh at 510-653-4520 or binhntk@yahoo.com.

Binh Nguyen has a very nice small home childcare. She offers full and part time care for infants through pre-kindergarten children at reasonable prices. Binh is the primary care provider with occasional help from her sister.

Presently Binh has one dedicated playroom in her house. It is best suited for infants through young toddlers full time, and as part time care for more active toddlers and preschool age children. She may be moving to a house nearby in December to provide more play area for the bigger kids.

Binh has been caring for my daughter for 1 1/2 years, since she was 5 months old, on a part time basis. We appreciate the care she gives our daughter. Our daughter loves Bihn.

Binh ''Kim'' Nguyen is a fantastic caregiver! Her home-based daycare is near Grand Ave/Welden. She's been running her daycare for over 10 years (licensed). She has 3 very smartchildren at Berkeley and Cal Poly. My 1 yr old son has been under her care for 6 months and he loves her. She holds him alot and cooks him organic food. She charges very little (I pay $240 wk/full-time)for such quality care! Her phone is 510-452-4570 and email: binhntk[at]yahoo.com.
