Jan 2014

We wanted to update the review for our older daughter's day care since the last entry was in 2011. Our daughter has attended Phuntsokling Day Care since June 2012. After looking at many home-based day care places, several characteristics led us to choose Phuntsokling. The most significant is the owner, Dolma Chozom. She is patient, and peaceful. She's one of those people you feel comfortable around. They say go off your gut instincts when choosing a daycare. My gut told me Dolma was the one. Our daughter has really come to love Dolma and looks forward to going to daycare every day. Dolma accepts infants, which are her specialty. The adult to child ratio is low. There are 3-5 kids at any time, with Dolma and an assistant to watch the children. Phuntsokling is a five minute walk from El Cerrito Del Norte BART. All food is included in the monthly fee. Hours are flexible and convenient - 7:30-6pm. Our second daughter will attend Phuntsokling as I wouldn't consider anything else.

She has a good physical environment. There's a large sunroom dedicated to the daycare, small and quiet sleeping rooms. The backyard is relatively large and dedicated play area that's safe and partially shaded.

If you need someone who is loving and will care for your children like you would, call Dolma.

The fantastic home daycare near Keystone Montessori has an opening since our daughter has graduated to preschool. We could not recommend Dolma Chozom more highly. With a nursing and nanny background, she engages babies and toddlers who love her and are reluctant to leave at the end of their day. The location is ideal - near the Keystone Montessori Preschool, Windrush School and Del Norte BART in El Cerrito. The kids have ample opportunity to play in the enclosed courtyard attached to the play area, and go on frequent trips to Castro Park and the El Cerrito library. What is unusual is that the playroom is mostly windows, so even when the weather is terrible, the kids feel like theyC",E!re getting to play outside. Dolma makes nutritious meals, and offers organic milk, vegetables and fruit. She is very supportive of nursing moms. We encourage you to call Dolma to arrange a visit. b

There are openings available at Phuntsokling Child Care where our daughter attends day care and is reluctant to leave at the end of the day. This is a wonderful licensed family-style daycare near the Keystone Montessori Pre-school, Windrush School and Del Norte BART. Dolma Chozom has both nursing and nanny experience, and offers a nurturing environment, sunny play area, and quiet nap room. The kids have ample opportunity to play in the enclosed courtyard attached to the play area, and go on frequent trips to Castro Park and the El Cerrito library. Rates are competitive, and there is attractive discounted monthly pricing. You may contact Dolma at 510-965-1420 or dolmachozom12@yahoo.com.

Dolma is an experienced nanny with a beautiful daycare space for your child. We have had our daughter with Dolma for over a year now.

Dolma has an amazing ability to read into the baby's mood, and she knows what she wants and needs. She makes the children feel safe and loved. Dolma is very active with the children. They frequently go to the playground and the library near her home. At the daycare she does dancing, singing, massage and reading time. She will be closer and more attentive to your baby if she/he needs more attention that day. She provides meals, supervised by a nutritionist. She has Infant and Toddler CPR and first aid certification.

A year ago, I was nervous about letting my 3 month old baby with anybody and I interviewed many small daycares. I felt the peaceful and fun environment and supportive spirit of Dolma as I walked through her door. My daughter is always very happy to see her, always brings back home a big smile of satisfaction. I have learned a lot from Dolma. Give me a call for more information about Dolma, or give her a call to visit her place. (Dolma:510-9651420)
