I would like to recommend Julie Overman's Village Child Care just off of Central in El Cerrito. My toddler Ariel has thrived under Julie's care for three months now.
What Julie provides goes well beyond day care and is really a Reggio Emilia program: TONS of play activities offered (puppets, music, different arts, nature exploration, math manipulatives, etc.)
Julie is highly educated. If you are at all concerned (as I am) about intellectual, language and emotional development-- you should consider this place.
Unlike many day care providers, they are fluent in English to the nth degree-Ariel is learning the sounds and syntax of English and she will be ready for school when she leaves.
Julie is also an incredibly warm, intelligent, nurturing Mother Goose-Earth Mother type.
You just can't get this quality of educated child care for the price. Her number is 510-527-1804. Martina
Our child care provider, Julie who runs ''Village Child
Care'' in El Cerrito has been great! She has been running a
child care program in MD for many years and just opened
here this fall. We feel very pleased with her philosophy:
she cares for the children by following the child's lead
with lots of creativity and gentle guidance. The
atmosphere Julie creates is peaceful and caring. The cost
is reasonable and she provides healthy lunches and
snacks. It's been nice to get into a great program
without the year waiting list. The kids have a great
outdoor area to slide, run, ride cars, water table... They
also have an indoor room with lots of fun play things that
inspire learning. We live in Berkeley and the 10 mn. drive
is totally worth it! Julie has a 2 day slot available for
the infant/toddler age (we use 3 days a week).
