If you're looking for a good day care, I would definitely recomend this one. I basically grew up here and I loved every moment of it. The kids, the movies, the toys, the food and snacks, it was all so great and fun. There was a new adventure everyday it was great, I'm 18 now and I visit ever time I have a chance to. The adults working here are all so loving and kind, and really do love children! It's a really safe place to leave your kids.



Looking for a daycare to begin...

Looking for a daycare to begin with is hard. To be able to trust someone with your child is even more difficult but Mangala has totally put our minds at ease. She is loving as well as her assistant. Our son is in a safe, structured, educational and clean environment. Me and my fiancee are so happy we found her and have her to take care of our son. Our son loves her and looks forward to going.

My wife and I love this place.

This is our son's first daycare and he loves it.

Not only he trippled his vocabulary he is also eating different types of food,

and teaches him wonderful songs, habits and manners.

The owner is a great and her helpers are wonderful with the kids.

She has a great and clean place and I feel safe taking dropping off my son.

My son never wants to go home and even wants me to drop him off

during the weekend.

This place is awesome.......

Send your kids to Mangala! I sent both of my daughters to First Steps until they entered preschool. I was so happy with Mangala and her team! Mangala has so much energy, and she truly loves her kids. The daily routine is perfect for little ones: they have outdoor playtime 2 or 3 times a day, snack times, lunch, rest time, singing, and indoor playtime. Mangala teaches them songs, letters, colors, names of objects, etc. She also teaches them manners, sharing, and friendship skills. It is a sparkling clean, safe environment. The kids have so much fun; mine used to cry when I came to pick them up. They didn't want to leave!



a true gem

After searching for weeks for a Daycare for my son, I immediately knew this was it. He was there with First Steps until we moved out of state, and we're still looking for a Daycare like First Steps. Clean, caring, and safe.

Truly the best in town. We found this daycare eight years agon when my first son was three months old - he stayed here for more than three years. Now his little brother has been here since HE was three months old and I had made sure to call early and reserve a spot - I would not have settled for anything else. Family setting with a loving atmosphere, home-cooked meals and lots of play time and solid routines. This became a second home for both our sons and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants peace of mind that their child is in good hands.

I truly love this day care center. Everyone is warm and caring and when your child doesn't want to leave when you pick them up that's a great sign that they love it there! My daughter received a great start in this center. They are always full so if you get a spot, you are very lucky!!

Send your child here if you are lucky enough to get a spot! I searched for a clean and loving daycare in the valley! This place is it. My son loves it! He never wants to leave. Mangala, the owner, is like an Auntie to him. She even looks after my daughter who is special needs from time to time when my daughter's on vacation, My son puts himself in time-out when he misbehaves at home!

Exceptional Clean and Loving Daycare!

My son never wanted to leave! this place is a working mom's dream. The only reason we left was because my work situation changed. If you get a spot here, take it! the owner is great with babies and toddlers. They provide healthy, homecooked meals, lots of outdoor, shaded playtime! This place is a gem!

Hello :-)

I would like to recommend First steps day care family center.

Both of my kids attended this place fore more than 2 years,

Words cannot express my enormous gratitude and appreciation with there great work with my kids.

The total care attention, patience and love invested with the kids are absolutely priceless.

With both of my kids under the care of Mrs. Mangala my heart was at peace.

Other than the daily care for the kids, other important values such as social skills and well manors were also invested with the kids.

I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart to Mrs. Mangala who operate this day care center for many years, you are a special person in my eyes and the precious work that you had done with my kids are priceless.

This is the right place for any working mother out there who is looking for the right daycare to put her kids in.

First Steps is the best

We love First Steps, my daughter has been going there for the past year and a half and we wouldn't want to go anywhere else. Mangala has not only become a wonderful child care provider but a member of our family. She treats everyone of the children she takes care of as if it is her own child. Since I have become a parent 6 years ago I have never met such a wonderful child care provider. A friend of mine also had her son in this day care and had such a great experience that even as a director of a large child care facility would rather send her second child to Mangala then to have the child in her own center. Mangala is always smiling when we arrive in the morning and happy to see her children. She cooks very healthy and delicious meals and some how manages to give every child attention. Often times Mangala is with the children very late hours without ever complaining, having at times completely neglected her personal life in favor of taking care of our children.
