I want to highly recommend Yasmeen's Bunny Hutch where spaces are available for infants in her Berkeley home. Yasmeen is energetic, loving, nurturing, reliable, and has created a safe and fun environment with 2 rooms devoted to the kids. She was wonderful with both our kids and the families who have been in her care keep in touch.
The following contains some specifics. Please only contact her if you meet the age criteria, as she is interested in having the children learn and grow together. She also takes the kids on walks, to parks, and to age specific classes at gyms, activity centers and Music Together.
* 3-12 months of age
Contract agreements, payment receipts, and daily reports are included. Call Yasmeen at 510-548-0716 or yazg at sbcglobal.net

I would like to wholeheartedly recommend Yasmeen’s daycare for babies and toddlers. My daughter, Laura, was in her care from the age of three months till she was two (Sep ’03 to May ’05). I have visited other family daycares and Yasmeen’s is definitely exceptional. She only takes two or three children, so she can provide all the attention babies and toddlers need. She tries to take babies of similar ages, so they can grow up together. My daughter became very attached to both Yasmeen and her playmates and we were all very sad when it was time to leave.
While Laura was still a baby, Yasmeen had the magic touch with her that few other people had. For one, Laura took better naps at daycare then at home. Yasmeen was also one of the few people that managed to get Laura to take a bottle. Then during the toddler years, Yasmeen took Laura and the other children on outings to the zoo, Babygym and music classes. In her care, my little baby who cried each time a stranger approached her blossomed into outgoing little girl really ready for the big adventure of preschool. You could not ask for better place for your baby or toddler.
If you have questions or would like to talk to me personally, feel free to contact me. We moved out of state, but I’ll be always happy to talk to you about Yasmeen and how happy we were with her.

Our present home daycare, Yasmeen's Bunny Hutch, in Berkeley, will have an opening for a 3-5 month old beginning mid/late June and two more openings late summer/fall. Our daughter started with Yasmeen at 4 months old and will be 'graduating' to preschool this fall. Yasmeen is incredible! She provides a loving, nurturing and stimulating environment for every stage from young infant to rambunctious toddler. She's very responsive to all my concerns. My daughter loves her dearly and always looks forward to her days with Yasmeen and her friends. They often go on outings to parks and the Y. Yasmeen is very organized, resourceful, environment and health conscious. Her home is safe and sunny and she is state licensed. I could go on and on! She's open 8:30-5:30 and would like someone 3-5 days/week.
