Anaheim >Maranatha Child Care Development Center
Our director Tanya is amazing.. Happy Valentine's Day!
Maranatha is a great school! My three
year old daughter attends this preschool and my husband and I are so grateful we found it. When you walk in you feel the warmth of the school. The teachers and staff are caring and courteous. My daughter loves her teachers and we love that not only do her teachers know her well, but the entire staff takes the time to say hello to the children and parents.
It is very familial and community-oriented. My daughter is excited to go to school and learn every day. I would definitely recommend Maranatha Child Development Center to friends.
Our 3 year old has thrived here!. Our 3 year old has thrived here! 2 years ago when I went back to work and was looking for care, I was horrified by some of the places I visited, I wouldn't have wanted to spend my day there. But then I found Maranatha. The classroooms are big and bright and full of wonderful educational and fun things for the kids to do. The staff is wonderful and attentive.
Hands Down the Best of the Best!.
There is no better way to describe this center than to use the term amazing! We searched and searched for a facility that would offer us all of the things on our insanely long list of requirements and Maranatha hit all and then some! We researched a minimum of 40 facilities ranging from corporate to private. To say that I have high expectations is an understatement, but upon entering the facility I was instantly impressed. First of all the fact that the entry is by a code lock only made me feel that regardless of the amazing location, people who are unwanted will not be entering. But as we continued on and I saw the way the classrooms are set up to be the best for each age group and the fact that they have a fantastic outside play area in addition to the great activities they offer in each class, I was consistently growing more and more excited that we may have discovered our new "home away from home". Considering that these people will be a huge part of helping in the primary day to day upbringing of our son, I will not accept anything less than the best. Maranatha is just that! I could go on and on for hours about all the amazing things this staff and more-so additions to our family offer to the children they care for each day but the bottom line is, as an educator who values not only the fun in young children's days, learning is also crucial and a huge part of the day to day here but in a way that the kids LOVE participating. They sing songs, dance, play, read books, learn manners, and the list is truly endless. Our son isn't even 2 yet and can tell you all his letters and their sounds, can count to 10, discuss with others his opinions on things and so much more. None of the things Maranatha does is forced, these "teachers" love what they do, they love the kids and they give 100% every day.
I must say, at this point, after all the research and the background checks and history checks we have done, we really have done all the work for you and if you choose to go to another facility you are missing out on such outstanding care, learning, and love... that for me is the biggest reason our son will remain here until he goes to a traditional elementary school. Even then, I hope by that point they will be a full elementary facility....
The staff is awesome!.
I searched high and low for child care for my twin baby girls. They have attended Maranatha since they were 4 months old and I cannot express how happy I am we found this facility!
We're paying twice the bill for everything we need for our babies, but not the cost of their daycare. No one beats Maranatha's sibling discount!!
Maranatha is also the only daycare facility that understands that not all parents have set schedules! Most daycare facilities would only take my babies on the same days every week. With our shifting schedules, that did not work for us. Maranatha is the best facility for your flexing schedule. They have been there for me with last minute requests and taken my girls with open arms.
I enjoy and look forward to the few minutes I get to chat with the staff before I run off to work. The staff is awesome!
Excellent!. Our Daughter has been attending Maranatha since she was less than a year old and is now 3 years old. We have loved this school so much. She always comes home with stories to tell and artwork and more. The staff is so very friendly, helpful, and accomodating. We are always greeted by smiles. Our Daughter loves going here and I would recommend this to anyone. We love this school so much that even though we moved from Yorba Linda to Placentia we still drive the opposite way from work in the morning just so we can continue our Daughter's learning here.
We love Maranatha!. My grandmother watched my son twice a week and then she suffered a stroke. Suddenly we were put in a position to find a preschool very quickly! I researched, talked to friends, and finally my dad recommended Maranatha. I took a tour the next day and loved what I witnessed! A day later my son started in the 2 year old classroom. It was hard for both him and me as I had never left him at a preschool before and he suffered from separation anxiety. But thank God for the staff and teachers at Maranatha!! They made it as seamless as possible for us to transition from family care to preschool care (which, honestly they treat like "family") My son "graduated" to the 3/4 classroom last year and absolutely loves Ms. Kathy! Flexible, affordable, family-that is Maranatha in a nutshell.
Thank you for posting such an amazing review. Your support and input makes us successful.
Amazing Nurturing Environment and Caring staff..
Maranatha Child Development Center is an amazing center/preschool. The rooms are very clean and the staff cares for each child individually according to their needs. The meals are fresh and prepared and are healthy. The playground is large, and safely enclosed, all overlooking the river behind it.
The owners are so passionate about child care that it's great to see someone who genuinely cares about the education and development of a child. Defiantly recommended, and worth every dollar.
My child is well loved and cared for.
My son, now 18 months, has been with Maranatha CDC since he was 4 months old. Felicity and her staff have ALWAYS been willing to talk about how my son is doing and to help with great suggestions whenever I had a question about a phase he was going through (I'm a first time mom).
You know your child is well loved and cared for when he reaches for his teachers in the morning and doesn't want to leave in the evening. Ms. Rhonda will sing songs to him until she loses her voice, Ms. Jessica will hold him literally all day long if he is feeling particularly needy that day and Ms. Michelle is always so excited to see him in the morning. You can't ask for more dedication to the children.
These are truely wonderful people who love kids and care for yours as much as you would if you could stay home with them. I love the fact that they use the Reggio-Emilio approach because each child is encouraged to pursue what THEY are interested in, which in the case of my son is books and songs. His vocab is leaps and bounds above where he might normally be because his teachers let HIM direct his play. Can't endorse them highly enough. The cost is cheaper than other local daycare's I looked at and the benefits are so much more. As a first time mom having to return to work before I was ready to leave my baby with anyone but family, I was fully satisfied with the quality of the center.
Now, I am more than satisfied. I love it just as much as my son does. I am considering taking a job that will require me to drive in the other direction to get here. And it is TOTALLY worth it.
Maranatha has become a second home to my son. Maranatha has become a second home to my son. I'm often asked why my child attends a preschool that is not in our neighborhood. The truth is that I felt very comfortable with the owners. In addition, I have had several friends whose children have attended Maranatha and were happy with the child care. Something that is particularly nice about Maranatha is that they are very flexible in terms of schedules. As parents, we are all busy people. The preschool's willingness to make adjustments to accomodate us has been a big asset.
