Welcome to

At Kid Care Brookie's Mom, child care has been a joyful experience since 1984.

The first question we are often asked is "Who is Brookie?" Brookie is our loving daughter and light of our lives. When she was born, my husband and I fell in love with being parents. We totally enjoyed the experience of raising Brookie ... teaching her to read, guiding her to the right types of food, protecting her and exposing her to so many things that have helped make her into an outstanding young lady. Because of all this we watched her grow from a baby, into a young adult. This was very, very rewarding for us. We never wanted it to end. But as you know as parents, children do grow up.

One day my husband and I looked at each other when Brookie was three years old and said, "Why does it have to end"? Why don't we use the parenting skills we have learned and are using everyday raising Brookie, to help other parents raise their children? So we set out about twenty eight years ago, to become licensed with the state of California and turned the same home where we were raising Brookie, into a place where we could help raise the children of other local Laguna Beach parents like your selves.

Brookie is all grown up now. We must have done something right, because she is such a great young lady and works in our community. Often I look back at the more than 1,000 children who have gone through our child care center. It's been so rewarding for Steven and I to still be using most of the same techniques today, we used with Brookie. We are very proud to have been a small part of so many children growing up, becoming parents and working in the area. We would like to help your child too.

Nobody will care for your child better than we will ... every day!


Let us briefly explain our program, from a daycare center, a childcare center, babysitting to preschool and more.  

Our licensed preschool offers pre-writing, reading and math skills, a language literature program, creative arts, age-appropriate cooking class, gymnastics and movement experience. We provide delicious, nutritious meals and snacks for children, and Miss Sheila teaches our kids about manners, hygiene and appropriate peer interaction.

We offer both half day programs and full day programs. Miss Sheila’s educational background is in Early Childhood Education as well as having her credentials to be a Director in a preschool. Miss Sheila and Mr. Steven are both sensitive to the individual needs of young children.  We also work in conjunction with and according to the standards of the Laguna Beach / Orange County, CA, School Readiness Program.

KidCareBrookiesMom.com is a happy day care center and child development center with appropriate play experiences that contribute to the physical, social, emotional, intellectual and aesthetic development of the child.

Brookie is very proud of the loving environment we have created for local children. And we are glad to see that the experiences of parenthood live on, in our home everyday, through the children of Laguna Beach, California. We look forward to meeting your kids.

 



Our Daycare Program Includes 10 Main Individual Elements. Here's A Quick Overview:


Many of our competitors (and we don't feel we really have any) simply enroll your children without really explaining to the parent what their child care program consists of. At Kid Care Brookie's Mom, we want you to have the satisfaction of knowing exactly what your child is experiencing every day, every hour and every minute of the day. Here is an overview and later on in our website, we will explain these areas in greater detail:
