I'd like to issue an apology for the negative reviews I left for the Henriquez Family Day Care. I've had an ongoing dispute with a member of their family, and in order to get revenge I posted a false review about their business. The truth is, Lilian is a very caring person and I'm sure she's a wonderful caretaker.
I am beyond embarrassed at having to post a review onto a business website of a family in which has always been good to us growing up. I want to take this time to do what I feel in my heart is right and I would like to apologize on behalf of my cousin NATASHA IERA JIMENEZ. I am completely baffled at her actions recently towards the Henriquez family and the false accusations that have been posted on her behalf onto multiple social platforms with false names such as Jessica, Portwood and others regarding the "services" that she has never received from this family daycare. I must recognize that although my cousin has been facing troubling circumstances in which has been causing her to act foul against many, it does not justify trying to harm a family that has done nothing but help us when we were in need. Although I am not one to discuss our family issues, I do believe in justice and I must recognize what's right from wrong, in this situation my cousin being at wrong. As stated previously, Natasha has recently gotten herself into trouble, some in which involves the law. Due to difficult times in her life in which she's trying to cope with. She was recently arrested for fraud which left the entire family at disbelief and disappointment. Therefore, we had to take extreme measures to make sure my baby cousin was being taken care of and being looked at in a professional manner. Since then, we have been keeping a close eye on her so she does not harm herself nor others as she is not mentally able to deal on her own. On behalf of our family, we would like to send our apologies to the Henriquez family for being one of Natasha's targets. We apologize for everyone in which she has gotten upset. Reading all these reviews truly shows the warm hearts that the Henriquez family obtains. We've known them for many years, almost as long as they've had the daycare and they are the most kind hearted, hard working and humble people I have met. Anyone who doesn't take the time to allow them into their life is missing out. As a parent, we want what's best for our children, and the HENRIQUEZ family home daycare is truly the best. Giving them the opportunity to look after your baby is one of the best decisions you can make, truly. Again, I apologize for the conflict. God bless you guys.
Natasha you're out of your mind. You have a personal vendetta with the family. You never even brought your child there. This family would never harm a child or anyone for that matter.
Great daycare! Great family. I always felt my child was safe. They treated myself and my son like we were family. They worked with us financially if my month was hard. They did crafts with my son, taught him simple Spanish words, made mother and fathers day gifts (no father at the time so I received double gifts) my son was special needs and they assisted with potty training. The children have their own bathroom aside from the bathroom in the home with I loved. Hommade meals daily. This daycare is where my child learned how to walk, learned his ABC's and days of the week. Great loving family. Highly recommended. Lilian speaks great English as well as her daughters and husband. In reference to the above review, I have never heard them use foul language. I also showed up at random times while my child was in Lilian's care and there were never ever any issues or problems.
I honestly can't say enough good things about Angel's Paradise Daycare and the ladies who work there, Lilian and Carla. When my wife and I moved to Long Beach about 3 years ago, one of our biggest concerns was finding a daycare facility that would properly care for our two little girls. We looked at several places and had become quite frustrated because there wasn't a single place that exhibited the warmth and love we wanted for our daughters. However, when we met Lilian and Carla, we knew our search was over. These two ladies are the kindest, gentlest, most loving women I have ever met. From day one they took such good care of our girls that I didn't think of them as daycare providers, but rather as members of our extended family. My wife and I were so fortunate to have met these wonderful ladies and will forever consider them to be our friends. If you are having any trouble at all deciding on a daycare, look no further than Angel's Paradise. Your child will be cared for with the utmost love and attention and you will feel 100% safe. I love this daycare!
My son is almost 4 and has been going to this day care for about 2 years. They are very good to him - my son even calls Lilian his second mommy. They are very caring and nurturing and I know he is safe when he is there. My son learned to eat veggies and was potty trained with their help. They are also incredibly flexible with my schedule which is important for our family.
My son started at Angels Paradise when he was 6 months, and from the very first moment we knew this was a special place. Lilian is exceptionally well organized and experienced, maintains an adorable and spotless space. Both Lilian and Carla take the time to educate the kids in Spanish and English from the basics of shapes, colors, animals, to fine motor skills, ABCs and math.
Most importantly they provide a calm, safe and loving place for the children they care for. Lilian is part of our family, and I can't imagine NOT having her (and her delightful family) in our lives.
My husband and I have been taking our 4 year old daughter to Lillian since she was 3 months old. I cannot say enough about how wonderful this place and people are and how good they treat our child. In the beginning I was so nervous putting my newborn in daycare for the first time but I immediately felt at ease with Lillian and Carla because they are so professional and they are experts at childcare and what they do. Since the beginning they have treated our daughter with love and kindness and I always know she is safe when in their care. When I get her ready in the morning she is always excited to see Lillian, Carla, and all her friends-not once has she ever cried or been sad to see me leave for work. We even use Carla at times when we need a babysitter in the evenings or weekends. Now that she is of preschool age, she has also been learning her numbers, letters, , words, colors, and other important criteria to prepare her for kindergarten. I highly recommend them.
