Ivonne Sannella Day Care
A Truly Safe, Happy, Loving & Exciting Educational Environment
Corte Madera, CA 94925
I have know Ivonne for many years and have had all three of my children at one time or another in her care. Not only is her Day Care top notch, Ivonne and her family are amazing, hardworking people. They are trustworthy, pillars fo the comminuty and I am lucky to know them. I would recommend her Day care to many others and they have been equally happy.
When my husband and I were looking around for childcare we both just "knew" after visiting Ivonne's Day Care that it was the place for our daughter, Lola. Lola started going to Ivonne's when she was 4 months old. She refused to take the bottle at home and I was a nervous wreck during my first week back at work that she would starve herself all day. Ivonne, and her aides Elsa, and Chela, lovingly worked with Lola to get her to take the bottle. Ivonne's Day Care is such a wonderful, loving, educational environment for children to grow up in. Lola would be so excited to go to Ivonne's in the morning, and some days would cry in the afternoon because she didn't want to leave. While that hurt my feelings, I was thrilled that she loved her day care so much. Lola will experiment with different foods because of all of the delicious, organic meals that she ate at Ivonne's. Having breakfast, lunch, and dinner provided was an incredible perk and huge time saver for us. Ivonne, Elsa, and Chela, diligently worked with Lola on potty training and she was out of diapers before she was 2 ½ . My parents live out of state so Ivonne became (and still is) a surrogate mom to me/grandmother to Lola. Having 4 children of her own and working with children for 25 + years, Ivonne has experienced it all and is a great resource for parents. Lola is still great friends with the children that she grew up with at Ivonne's. She goes to Ivonne's on a drop-in basis when her school is closed and over the summer. Each morning Lola still asks "Do I get to go to Ivonne's today?" I would be happy to talk to anyone who is considering sending their child to Ivonne's Day Care. Ivonne has my contact information.
I have a 4 year old boy and 15 month old boy, both of whom have been attending Ivonne Sannella's day care since they were small babies. I couldn't be more thrilled with the care they have received. Ivonne is completely devoted to the children she cares for, attending to their physical, emotional and developmental needs. I have had complete trust in her, and her wonderful aids Elsa and Chela, from the beginning. My children love going there, they often hate to leave, and they are learning age-appropriate (and beyond) skills in language, writing, music, etc. The set-up is terrific - delineated areas for babies and older children, separate kitchen/eating area, and a fantastic, safe outside area full of everything a child would want. Not once throughout the day do I ever worry about my children - the best gift a mommy can have!
I recommend Ivonne's day care wholeheartedly!
There is no decision more important than deciding where to place your children for day care and pre-school. We feel extremely fortunately to have been introduced to Ivonne Sannella Day Care. Ivonne and her two assistants - Elsa and Cella - are first rate. They are warm, loving, capable and strong women. When I dropped off my first child at 3 months old, I was a very nervous new mother. But after just a few minutes with Ivonne, I knew my baby would be well cared for and I have never had another second of doubt about either of my children's safety, welfare or nurturing. The environment is organized, pleasant, well stocked with age-appropriate toys, books and games and there is plenty of structure in the routine to keep the children balanced between work and play - not to mention home-cooked meals three times a day. The children there are all happy, excited and yet well-behaved and they play nicely together. My girls have thrived there and I would highly recommend Ivonne's Day Care. There have been many days when I wished I could just stay there with them!
I have never seen such a wonderful, cheerful, curious, innocent group of children in a day care setting.
In today's environment it was a pleasure to witness.
Three cheers to Ivonne and her assistants for providing such a loving and caring atmosphere.
