    Comment:  Our daughter started at Luz's when she was just 4.5 months old and we could not imagine a more loving, family-oriented place for her to be spending her weekdays. This is a small home-based daycare and it truly feels like we are dropping our daughter off at a family member's apartment every morning. Luz and Angelica have taken the time to get to know our daughter so well. She absolutely lights up when we drop her off and is always happy when we pick her up in the evenings. During the day, they go to the park, libraries or on walks and in the afternoon, the kids spend time reading and playing with the wonderful collection of toys that Luz has assembled. This is an absolutely lovely place--we could not recommend it enough!

    Comment:  Our son has been with Luz and Angelica for about six months, and we are very happy with his care. We were previously at a larger, more institutional daycare, and the transition to a smaller family day care model has been lovely. There currently are only four kids, so there is tons of personal attention. They go outside almost every day, and in many ways it feels more like a nanny share than a daycare. Luz and Angelica are loving and responsive, and as a bonus they speak Spanish to the kids, so our almost two-year-old now knows almost as many Spanish words as English. Our son walks in happily and begins playing in the mornings, and usually doesn't even bother to say goodbye to me (a feat, since he can be quite clingy). We highly recommend the program.

    Comment:  Luz and Angelica have been caring for my daughter since she was 4 months old. It is such a relief to find a daycare where my mind is completely at ease – they have my full trust. They provide such a warm and nurturing environment. It’s just Luz and Angelica as the two consistent caregivers (who are sisters and mothers themselves) for up to 6 kids – creating the intimacy to care for each child as an individual and for the children to form strong relationships to each other. Each day they take the kids to play outside in Prospect Park – in the grass or at the playground – and they also take advantage of music and children’s programs around the neighborhood (i.e., at the Brooklyn Library or the Park). Plus, they are bilingual and I encourage them to speak Spanish with my daughter – what an amazing opportunity for her to learn another “first” language from native speakers! My daughter gets excited each morning when she’s dropped off – I know she loves Luz and all her friends there. You would be very lucky to snag a spot in this center.

    Comment:  Location: 1205 8th AvenueType: DaycareAbout the facility: Has early morning hoursReview: Luz is wonderful! This home-based daycare is intimate, nurturing, and sweet. Luz is great with kids of all ages -- loving and firm, both in perfect balance. My kids have been very happy there... it always felt like I was bringing them to a family member's home. Luz was instrumental in potty-training, scheduling, napping, feeding, socialization, and more. The kids go outside every day. Really great!

    Comment:  We went to see Luz’ daycare when we were pregnant with our first daughter – having heard a friend and colleague talk about her for years before we even had children of our own. Both our daughters have been at Luz’ daycare since they were five months old and we think it is the ideal place for babies and toddlers, if what you are looking for is a warm, loving, social but personal environment. The relationship Luz and Angelica have with the children is just natural and beautiful – no fancy philosophy. The children play, go outdoors, do crafts, read books, eat and sleep – and are cuddled – whenever they need to. Luz has always been respectful of our parenting and we have learnt a lot from her. Luz has become so much a part of our lives that she watched our first daughter when her little sister was born, and, even though we have moved away from Park Slope, we cross the Park every day to drop the little one off at Luz.
