I have been several times to pick up my granddaughter nd was very displeased at the mannerism and professionalism. My granddaughter can be a handful sometimes I know but on more than one occasion, I have entered the daycare and no one was aware I was there. This is how I was able to hear Mrs Cynthia yelling at the children and calling them pitiful, stupid.. etc., My grandchild is 4 years old nd she had her sitting all alone in a walker fit for a nine month old or a baby that's not even walking yet.. Her nose was running over her top lip. When Mrs Cynthia seen me, she looked embarrassed. She begin to clean my grandchild's face and make excuses. There's simply not enough staff and sometimes she run errands and leave the children with her husband who's not attentive to the children's needs at all. I would not recommend this facility! She's been reported several times and warned by the California license commission. If I could give zero stars, I would.

Amazing, caring and invested staff! Our little bit has been going there for about 6 months and we have seen so much growth! From the Holiday program…
The BEST daycare ever. Feels like home. Small, welcoming, and super clean. Ms. Lori is a true angel, radiant, loving, very organized, attentive and fabulous with kids. We used her for 5 years and she has definitely become part of our family. :-) I could not have been happier with her. Simply the best.
Her husband made my daughter sit in the mini by themselves so he could bully her about calling her mom because they were 40minutes late picking Her up from school. His dumb a$$ didn't know her phone was still on and I heard everything. They don't need to be in business with a person like that. I took my child out!
Her husband made every child leave the car so he could berate her about calling me. She called me because 45 minutes had passed and Dorothy heavenly daycare had not picked her up from school. She felt stuck and afraid. Then this big buffoon picks her up and I'm his heels. I hear him belittling her for calling me her mom because she was not picked up. What kind if monster does that?
What a great program! Very organized and creative center for children. The staff are so friendly and my children have been going to this center for the last 6 years. Thank you bright beginnings for wonderful years and teaching my children.
awesome care, friendly people and willing to work with you on cost and hours. the facility is clean and most important it feels like a safe place for kids
only giving one star because none isnt an option. I would NOT recommend this establishment! My son had been only watched by family before he went here! He cried every single day and all day long. I say for the money you might as well put them in a real preschool. Small wonders is sooooo great and my son adjusted extremely well "within 2 weeks....." there and he wasn't pushed away and out the door because he had a "hard time adjusting."
