Established in 2003, our philosophy is to make learning fun! We encourage parental input and implement your suggestions in order to foster a teamwork type of environment that is nurturing and secure. We have been a popular choice amoung educators. Children here get along well with each other, are well mannered, and laugh often! Building a sense of responsibility is important. They practice this by learning to clean up after themselves. Other services include interpersonal communication skills, potty training, full time care, part - time, and drop in. Children as young as of age of 4 have learned to read here.

A SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT: "When I was a child, I had a learning disability. Back then, people didn't really put names on things like that, so it was just really hard. I see a lot of children who have learning challenges like I did. Some of my after school kids try so hard to get out of doing homework-it's exasperating to them. I like to make learning fun so that they're motivated to go after learning. One of my students would tell me that he couldn't read, but his parents said otherwise. He just hated reading so much so I encouraged this kid to read what he wanted, which were books with fewer words. Then he discovered a pile of flashcards--just a few little individual pieces of paper with words. He felt more of a sense of accomplishment going through the whole pile of words. Now, he is reading a lot better."
INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION: "I teach interpersonal communication so children don't feel like they always have to go to a teacher for help. Nobody tattles here after they've been with me a while--they just help each other. If I was teaching a class of 20 or more kids, I wouldn't be able to give that individual attention. I keep my classes small. One of my former students won the 4th/5th grade spelling bee contest at her elementary school. She also was #1 in fundraising sales and is active in the community. Others students are ahead of their class when they get to kindergarten."

My son goes to Aunti Moni's Preschool/Daycare and I'm very glad that I chose to send him there. From making fresh homemade food, to providing good education, this preschool/daycare covers everything you would want for your kid. When my son started going there he would come back home and tell me about all the things he had learned. It impressed me a lot to see how much he was learning over the months. With Monica's help, my son was ready for kindergarten in both an academic and emotional way. By emotional, I mean that his behavior was what Kindergarten teachers would want from their students. Now my son is going to Kindergarten, and he is getting help from Monica on homework and stuff like that. I'm happy to know that my son is in great care while I leave for work. I highly recommend this place for the parents that are thinking of sending their kids to a preschool/daycare.--Sharmila, San Lorenzo, CA
I wanted to say thank you for Marco's time in your preschool. From the first day of Kindergarten he was able to be comfortable with his new teacher and classmates right away. He was able to follow instructions and put in good effort in a classroom environment. His teacher pointed that out to me after a month about how he tried hard and wasnt lazy. As a parent it was obvious to me where my son picked up what he needed before starting Kindergarten. Through communicating with you I was able to be more aware of what Marco needed to work on to advance. Thanks again!Gilberto Hernández, San Leandro, CA
As you can see I have been Yelping for years. We have had our boys at Aunti Moni's several times over the year. She has a wonderful home and accepts drop-in's which we use quite frequently. Our boys are well taken care of, they even do little field trips. What most impressed me was that within just a short time my boys (3 and 4) both could recite our names & address down to the ZIP and city... I was amazed. The environment is very learning oriented, safe and respectful. I hope to bring my boys there for years to come.Pierre C. Alameda, CA
From going to Monica's preschool, Neel was able to acquire many skills to help him in kindergarten. For example, he was able to get comfortable with the idea of working with others because of all the group activities Monica does with the kids. Also, Neel was able to learn how to behave at school and just in general by Monica teaching him proper manners. In addition, he was able to learn basic English skills, both orally and in writing. He would be able to memorize phone numbers, our address, and the alphabet. Usually, it wouldn't be that big of a deal, but Neel didn't start speaking during the time most kids would. All in all, Neel has been able to enter and continue kindergarten swiftly, thanks to Monica.
