Glad we found this place! Both my daughters attend this daycare and couldn't be happier. Backyard friends has a fantastic staff. Gina and Erica are wonderful to our girls and always attend to their needs. My husband and I are very appreciative we found this place and highly recommend it!

Our son has been going to Backyard friends for almost 1 year. We have seen a lot of progress with his speech and overall social skills. Gina is very good at keeping the kids on a daily routine that includes lots of playtime, snacks/lunch, nap and learning activities. Our son comes home with an art project every day and because of the variety of foods that Gina makes for the kids I often learn something new that he likes! Last note, I love that my very energic almost 3 year old gets to let out all his energy through out the day with the many yards and toys that Backyard Friends has. (Front yard, back yard and side yard, which all these yards have some type of jungle gym)
I had such a difficult time finding the perfect daycare for my Son and when I came across Backyard Friends and went through the interview process i felt that this daycare was the perfect fit for him! My Son was only 7 Mo. old when he started attending and has been going ever since. What i enjoy the most about this childcare is how well organized the teachers are and how they keep the children on set schedules and do different activities with them throughtout the day. They even teach the babies, Sign Language. How cool is that? I was really impressed when I seen my Son was using his hands and telling me "Bottle" or "More". If your looking for a Friendly, Educated, Secure and Fun place for your Children, I HIGHLY recommend Backyard Friends!!
I love Backyard Friends Childcare! Best Daycare in Long Beach. I highly recommend this daycare. They are very professional and nurturing. Great curriculum and activities for the children!
Our 3yr old son has been enrolled with Backyard Friends since he was 8mos old. He loves going to "school" every day. Not only is it a fun environment, they also have a great educational program. We proudly showcase his daily art projects in our home. He's always so proud of what he made! The reward system for letter recognition has been awesome- he knows them all! Gina & Erica also helped him with potty training. What a relief! We are so thankful for all that they have done for our son, both socially & intelectually. He is thriving!Our 4mo old baby girl is now enrolled with Backyard Friends too! They are so loving with her. It is a real comfort knowing that she is being well taken care of. I have & will continue to recommend Backyard Friends to anyone that is looking for a great daycare.
