Berkeley Parents Network > Reviews > Preschools & Daycare > Mommy and Me Daycare



Sept 2013

Our daycare, Mommy and Me, will have two openings for infants/toddlers under 2 starting November 1. Thania is a wonderful, loving caregiver. The daycare is entirely staffed by family members and definitely has that feel.

Thania is so accommodating to your needs. I would nurse my babies every day during my lunch hour for the first few months after they started there. She accepts cloth diapers. We also did babyled weaning (no purees) and even though I think she was nervous at first, she was willing to try and was really impressed by what good eaters my boys were.

Thania is so loving. If you're looking for a family based daycare, give her a call at (510) 841-1043. Her website is thaniamarin.weebly.com Contact: lynn

I would like to highly recommend Mommy and Me Daycare. They have openings for 2+ now that the older kids have graduated to preschool. My daughter attended Mommy and Me for almost two years and I couldn't be happier with the care she received. Thania has been a childcare provider for over 20 years, is very responsible and listens to what the parents want. As a parent of adult children, she offers a wealth of information for new parents. It's a very peaceful and loving environment, the babies are held and nurtured and the tots have lots of opportunities to have fun and play together. All the kids bond with her and her family caregivers. I am so glad my daughter attended Mommy and Me Daycare.

Our wonderful family day care, Thania Marin's Mommy & Me, has both an immediate, part-time opening and a future full-time opening (this summer). Thania and her family provide fabulous, loving care for infants and up. We are moving out of state in July and one of the hardest parts of our transition will be leaving Thania and finding a new childcare arrangement. She is great. You can learn more at Thania's website: http://thaniamarin.weebly.com/index.html

Some of the perks include: a huge outdoor space...long hours and very reasonable prices (for the Bay Area)...both English and Spanish spoken...tons of experience providing care...great references...and, above all, a place where all of the children are happy, nurtured, loved, and taught to treat others well.

I'd like to recommend Thania Marin's wonderful family daycare, "Mommy and Me." Thania has a full time space available for an infant, and/or a toddler. I trust Thania with my kids more than anyone. Thania is loving, patient, careful, very experienced, and has a magical intuition about babies and children. She has more than 18 years experience-first as a nanny and then in a preschool-and excellent references. She is licensed and certified in first aide and CPR. Her English is perfect; her family mostly speaks Spanish at home so the kids end up learning a lot of Spanish. Thania's program is small; there are up to 9 kids from babies to age 5. Her husband, mother-in-law and sister-in-law help her, so the kids get lots of attention. Her rates are very reasonable, about $950/mo. full time for an infant and $810/mo. full time for 2 years and up. Call Thania to arrange a tour: 510/841-1043. California license # 013416631 You can also get more info on her website: thaniamarin.weebly.com Contact: Thania Marin, Mommy & Me Daycare, (510) 841-1043

We have been so happy with Mommy & Me. Our son William started there when he was a few months old. William is one of the family. He is bi-lingual (Thania and Mama Tere speak Spanish with the children) and ready for kindergarten. Thania has worked in pre-schools before and the kids are well prepared to enter either pre-school or like William enter kindergarten straight from Thania's care. The infant care is amazing! Babies are adored and held. William (at 5 now) is so tender and gentle with babies because of all the positive modeling. Thania has room for under 2 and over 2 right now. If you live in South Berkeley you should be OK with the neighborhood. If you live in North Berkeley but drive through South Berkeley on MLK or Sacramento you should check it out. While South Berkeley gets some gruff for good reason, it is block by block here and there are amazing people like those at Mommy & Me hidden here. Call Thania at 841-1043. If you want to talk to me let her know.

I am writing to recommend a wonderful daycare. Both my children have attended Thania's daycare and are so well loved and cared for. I have 1.5 and 3.5 year old daughters and they have both been at Thania's. Four of the older children are going off to preschool which leaves openings. I believe there is a 3 day a week opening for a child under 2 (mon, Wed, Fri) and that there are 4 full time openings for children over 2. Thania's is run by her family. The children receive so much love and the atmosphere is relaxed and homey. Somehow, Thania creates an atmosphere where the children do not fight, they get along great and are always happy, not to mention that you become part of the family and receive their support in emergencies. My dad recently died in another country and Thania took up the slack caring and loving my older daughter while I had to leave the country for a week. We couldn't have done it without her. If you have questions don't hesitate to email me. Thania can be reached directly at 510-734-5448. Jen

Opening for 2yr. old in Great Span./Eng. Daycare (S. Berkeley)
Thania Marin's ''Mommy and Me'' family daycare has an opening for a 2-year-old. This is a great place to send your child if they're not quite ready for pre-school. Very loving family environment, kids get lots of attention. My daughter thrived there for 3 years and just left for pre-school. Exposure to Spanish was an added bonus for us. (Thania is from Honduras and her in-laws, who assist her, are from Mexico.) There are usually 6-8 kids total. Thania has more than 10 years experience as a nanny and later as preschool teacher.
