Johnny has enjoyed every single day here and I believe he will have more fun in the next month as he is older. The love and care he has received here is way beyond my expectation. I feel he is even happier at day care than at home. Johnny smiles like sunshine whenever I picked him up after work, which really warms my heart. I don’t know how much he can remember this experience at day care when he grows up, but for me it is very memorable.
I have recommended this day care to a lot of friends who have a baby (and even people who plan to have a baby). It is really a great day care especially for people working at Oracle.”

“My daughter has been going to Redwood Shores elementary for quite a while now and she greets teachers with a wide open arm when we get to the door – ever since the first week! The place is very clean – teachers are extremely friendly and professional – and my daughter has learned two languages by now! They have great programs, put the kids to nap on schedule and the kids love eating with other kids. She eats much more there than home – she sings – knows the alphabet song and twinkle, twinkle, little star; engages with books, music – she colors well and is very aware of all her surroundings and she has learned a lot in this school – she is not even 18 months yet 🙂 I am very thankful for your great management and planning, Catherine and your wonderful staff – We love your place – please have anyone call me for reference.”

“RSCC is a great transitional care place for toddlers and infants before they head off to a more structured preschool environment. The elements of care, attention to diet, cleanliness of play area which you would want in a smaller home based care set up are all there. My daughter Sukanya was there from her early twos for a good 9-10 months and she was well looked after; she learnt good motor skills and had desirable level of cognitive development in all areas. Plus she learnt some Mandarin. She really liked the warmth of Teacher Amy. Because of the home like feel, hours of operation and convenience, we valued RSCC. We have used it for back up care many times even after graduating Sukanya to a larger preschool environment. Highly recommend this place with the request that they should consider bringing hot lunch back, my daughter loved it when she was there.”
– From Abha of Thakur Family (Redwood Shores, September 2015)
“My daughter has been going to RWSCC for three months now. Her first visit was around 12 months old. She enjoys her time there by playing with all kinds of toys. She also gets along well with the teachers. Teachers spent extensive time to new kids to help them establish their familiarity with the new environment. She had a very quick transition and can take full naps and eat all her food even during the second and third time of visit. Other children in the RWSCC are very friendly to her, too. RWSCC gave me peace of mind to hand over my child’s care to them during the day when I have to work. It’s a trustworthy and responsible facility that can take good care of small children, based on my own experience so far.”
– From Pei of He Family (Redwood Shores, December 2015)
“We sent our daughter to Redwood Shores Child Care for the toddler class starting in January 2015. We decided to send our daughter here because of its clean environment and caring teachers. Prior to this daycare, my daughter was in another childcare. Shortly after our daughter started here, she began to love to go to school. She loves her teachers in this daycare. I feel teachers here are flexible and meet each little ones’ need. I love the moment when I go to pick up my daughter everyday- kids there always smiles happily to say goodbye to each other. “

“I want to thank you for having Trinity joining your wonderful daycare for the past year. She has learned and grown so much from the experiences at your school. We appreciate all you have done for our daughter.”
– The Huang Family (Foster City, April 2015)
“My daughter started attending RWSCC when she was 2 years old. She loves the staff and especially Teacher Amy. Teacher Amy is enthusiastic, energetic and caring to all the kids. My daughter learns a lot of Mandarin, both English and mandarin songs and sing at home for us. It is a lovely place for kids to learn. The safe environment puts parents’ mind at ease since their kids are in good hands.”

“My son Benjamin joined redwood shores child care center when he just turned 2. During the first couple of days, both Benjamin and I were anxious (just like most kids and parents), Catherine gave lots of one-on-one attention to Benjamin by taking him for a walk and holding him a lot, she also sent me photos about Benjamin playing with other kids to ease my stress. Due to Catherine and other teacher’s effort, our transition was very easy and painless, I was so happy to choose such a great place for my son!
During the past 6 months, I’ve been constantly pleased by the care given to my son from the loving teachers. The teachers always keep the place clean and well organized, my son only got sick once during the winter time. Teacher Bella is a very sweet and energetic young lady, she always shares the details of how Ben spent his day, and I can see Ben adores her a lot. Ben also learned a lot – he surprised me with new words, new songs and skills all the time, most importantly, he seems very happy to go to school every day. I would highly recommend this place to every parent!”

“My daughter, Olivia has been attending RWSCC for a little over a year. She enjoys spending time with Teachers Amy and Angela, learning Chinese, eating home cooked meals, doing arts and crafts and playtime. RWSCC is a wonderful, safe, fun and caring place. Olivia couldn’t be happier!”
– From Cathy of Renard Family (Redwood Shores, October 2014)
“Our daughter Zoie started attending RWSCC at 13 months old. Thanks to the loving care of Teachers Catherine, Cindy and Bella, we have seen tremendous growth in the past 8 months especially in areas of social development and character. Zoie learned how to walk, interact with her peers, blow kisses, say hello-thank you and other words in Mandarin, etc. She has also become more sociable towards adults. Every day we are shown a daily log sheet detailing when and what she has eaten, and sometimes a short comment that summarizes her day. We really appreciate Bella sending us photos via text and short video clips showing how much fun Zoie is having throughout the day. That really put our hearts at ease. Such actions are not expected, but truly demonstrated her care & love towards the children she takes care of everyday.”
– From Cherry of Lau Family (Redwood Shores, August 2014)
“My child attended the Redwood Shores Child Care when she was approaching two years old and we absolutely love the teachers and staffs there. I must say that the director and teachers are phenomenal! They couldn’t be any more caring, attentive, and affectionate. They also strive to meet the needs of the parents and the child. My child was really happy to go there! ”
– The Kwok Family (Redwood City, April 2014)
“The teachers at Redwood Shores Child Care have shown my boys so much kindness, love, and patience. In the morning when it is time to go to daycare, the boys (Leo, 3, and Jack, 1.5) run to our front door excitedly. Leo has even asked a few times on a weekend or holiday if he can go to daycare, so I know they must really enjoy themselves! It’s a great feeling to be confident in the care they receive while I’m at work. I don’t have to worry; I know they are safe and having fun playing and learning with their friends and teachers. I am grateful for the warm, loving environment you have provided and will continue to recommend you!”
– The Neuburger Family (San Mateo, Jan 2014)
“Our son enjoyed going to school at Redwood Shores Preschool and we found the teachers to be very loving and kind. As two working parents, good quality childcare is an essential part of our lives. Catherine and the rest of the teachers did a fantastic job. He made some great friends and also gained a great foundation in mandarin in his nearly two years here. Happy New Year!”

– The Kam Family (Menlo Park, December 2013)
“We are so happy and fortunate to have found RWSCC. It is exactly what we were looking for: Mandarin immersion, intimate setting, with small child-teacher ratio. The facility is clean, safe, and homey. Being first time parents, we were nervous about having someone else care for our son, but RWSCC has made our transition back to work easy. They give a daily report of naps, feedings, and diapers which has been quite helpful. Although he is still too young, we look forward to the day he can join the school curriculum, as it seems to be filled with fun and educational activities. Our son is always happy when we drop him off and pick him up. It has been such a relief to leave our son everyday knowing that he is truly cared for and loved. We are extremely happy with Catherine, Cindy, and Amy! Two thumbs up! ”
– From Yvonne of Sorenson Family (Redwood Shores, November, 2013)
“RWSCC provided a safe and stimualing enviroment for Hugh. They are very good at making sure that he is feeding and napping on schedule. Teacher Cindy is kind and loving, Hugh enjoys being with her. My mind is at ease the minute I drop Hugh off at RSCC, I know he is in good hands and that his day will be filled with fun activities.”
– Fan Family (Redwood Shores, Jan 2013)
“We put our 4-month-old son Dylan in RWSCC (Redwood Shores Child Care) and he’s grown and thrived during the past 3 months. The space is very clean as he’s hardly had a sniffle and he comes home happy but tired from his daily activities. Teacher Cindy is so calm and caring and Catherine always takes an extra few minutes to talk to us about our child. We very much appreciate the activities/pictures provided to commemorate special holidays (Halloween and Christmas) as well as the daily log of naps/feedings. RWSCC makes an effort to partner with parents in caring for the kids and we look forward to the next year together!”
– Kim Family (Belmont, Jan 2013)
“Thank you for being Leo and Jack’s home away from home. The wonderful care they receive is evident by their smiles and the fact Leo doesn’t want to leave! They love you two and their new friends. Merry Christmas! ”

“Catherine and her staff have provided a wonderful and caring environment for Aidan these past few months. Aidan was only a mere 4 months old when he started at the day care. As any first time mother would be, I was very worried and unsure of “strangers” watching my child. However, since day one, Catherine and her staffs immediately gained my trust. They were both very attentive to Aidan’s needs and were always very informative about his daily routine/activities by the time I came to pick him up. Aidan has always been a difficult baby to feed, but the care provider took her time to make sure he finished all his milk — and this was never an easy task for my husband or myself! I really appreciate all the care they’ve given our little boy, and I know he will miss them greatly. I would highly recommend this day care for any infants or toddlers!”
– Chiu Family (Redwood Shores, May 2012)
“Thank you for being so patient and warm with Aidan during his first few days. I think it has been harder for me than it is for him! I know he’ll love coming to your day care and I reall appreciate all the time you devote to Aidan!”
– Sara (Redwood Shores, March 2012)
“My son Max went to the Redwood Shores Child Care (RSCC) for about 1.5 years, and I would recommend it to other parents. The care-givers speak exclusively Mandarin, so my son was able to learn a lot of Mandarin while attending. My son started going here when he was about 1 year old and has enjoyed attending. Initially we decided to come here because we were sending him to a more traditional school-like facility that didn’t meet our needs. The previous school wasn’t very clean, and he ended up getting sick fairly often. Additionally, he would be sent home from school whenever he had the slightest runny nose or mild diarrhea (which if you’re a parent, you know happens quite often). It came to be a stress on our jobs as we had to pick him up all the time. Now, during the 1.5 years at the RSCC, he never got even a mild flu or had diarrhea.
RWSCC keeps their facility very clean, and the care givers are very sweet and extremely loving with the children. They prepare the children with a healthy warm lunch and snacks, so we didn’t have to pack any food, which is very nice. All the children play very nicely together, and my son was able to develop some nice friendships.
Overall, I would definitely recommend the RSCC facility for the children.”
– Kremen Family (San Carlos, November 2011)
“My son Ethan attended Redwood Shores Child Care for more than a year. I liked the small group environment which felt much more nurturing than a larger facility with a larger number of children. Since I am not a native Mandarin speaker, I wanted a daycare which Ethan would be immersed in the language. I knew when he would come home and sing Mandarin songs and be able to speak to his grandparents in Mandarin that he was really absorbing the language. The teacher is so warm and caring with the kids and I felt so comfortable that Ethan was in her care. One of the highlights of my day would be when I dropped him off and would be greeted by the wonderful smell of the lunch being prepared. It was so reassuring to know that he would be eating a nutritious and healthy home cooked meal. I feel Ethan learned a lot and was very well cared for there”.

“We were looking for afternoon childcare for my son when he started kindergarten. We choose Redwood Shores Childcare because it is flexible to fit our schedule, has a low children to adult ratio, and is located conveniently in our Redwood Shores neighborhood. Our son attends the childcare after his class, where he spends his afternoons playing with puzzles, games, and coloring in a quiet and nurturing environment. In addition, he is exposed to Mandarin Chinese in a natural setting. ”

“We have LOVED your daycare/preschool. I know both Quinnten and Keira were taken care of and learned a lot. Quinnten loves the teachers there and will miss them terribly.
We can’t thank you both enough for your wonderful care of our two kids over the past 2 years. We have loved the time Quinnten and Keira has spent at your place. You guys are amazing and we will miss you! Thank you!” – Shea Yan from San Mateo (May 2011)
“Catherine, I’m really appreciating Redwood Shores Child Care facility. Time flies and it has been over 2 years since my son Masami joined. All the teachers are kind, friendly, efficient for taking care of young children. I was always able to get your advice for various things, such as the daycare for the weekend or even after school programs for my older daughter Saki. I really appreciate it. Tom and Joshua are always helping Masami to go out and enjoy the boys’ time; that is wonderful!
The food for children is nutritious, healthy, and the atmosphere is clean and cozy. I surely recommend it to others. ” – Yoko Motojima from Redwood Shores(2009 – 2010)
“My daughter Lucy began going to Redwood Shores Childcare Center when she was just 10 months old. She was our first baby and it was very hard to leave her in someone else’s care. However, she has been at Redwood Shores for nearly 2 years now and I have always felt 100% confident that she was safe, loved and, of course, well fed. The teacher always greets her with a big smile and a hug and Lucy gladly reaches out to her when we arrive in the morning. As an added bonus, now that Lucy is talking, she speaks fluently in both English and Mandarin. I’m very grateful to have found a place where I could feel good about dropping my little girl off every day.” – Heather Sirk from Antherton (2009-2010)
