Ana's Kids

Our daughter found a second home at Ana Kids. What we like the most was the attention the teachers gave to all, and to her in particular. From a shy girl, we could see her development, and improvements of her social skills. While she would sometimes complain that she didn't want to go to school, in general we are happy with the time our daughter spent at Ana Kids. Thank you for the care and attention.

My two children attended Ana's Kids between March 2021 and May 2022. They were 3 years old and 9 months old when they began attending Ana's Kids. My kids were excited to go to school each day. After my younger child was able to walk, she would excitedly run into the classroom each morning and hug her teachers. Both kids learned so much, including so many Spanish words and phrases. The teachers are loving and nurturing and the school is clean. The staff took great care with COVID precautions. The only reason we left the school was because we moved away from the area. My older child still talks about missing her Little Penguins class. We would return in a heartbeat if we were still living in Arlington.

We are so thankful for the opportunity to send our toddler to A+ Kids! We switched daycares to A+ Kids in July 2020 just before our son turned two, and it has been the best choice for our family! Our son is so happy to go to school each day, and he truly loves all the teachers, and they love him! He is learning so much and growing each day! I also want to thank A+ Kids for preparing my son to become a big brother this winter since they teach the kids about babies, and now he's the best big brother!

My family was so fortunate to find Ana’s Kids. My daughter was only 2.5 months old when she began there and stayed until she transitioned to public school at 3.5 years. She loved going to Ana’s and was always greeted with hugs and smiles at drop off. I was regularly amazed at how much she developed over a week. There were many days when she would say or do something new that she clearly learned at Ana’s, including using Spanish words. The staff is warm, loving, and energetic. Many of the caregivers who took care of my daughter as an infant are still there. Ana and Giovanni are wonderful people and make new parents feel at ease. Words can’t express how much we owe them for providing such a loving and nurturing environment for our daughter.

I can't imagine a better place for my kids! They love their teachers, enjoy spending time with friends and they are always provided with a variety of activities that stimulate their development and social skills. The facility is always clean and safe, the toys disinfected on regular basis.
Kids go to the park every day, enjoy art & craft in the classroom, plant veggies, make food, organize parties and events, go to our local library and play in so many creative ways!
A special thank you to Ana and Giovanni, the owners of Ana's Kids who are always hands on, very responsive and professional. Anytime you need help, they are right there for you.
last but not least, Spanish Immersion program!
we are very grateful for all the love our kids receive in there!

Our daughter has been attending Ana's daycare since 2014 and she loves the place. We always felt comfortable letting Ana's care for her over the past 3 years. The owner couple, Ana and Giovanni, are very responsive to any and all of our inquiries. The teachers are very caring and there was not a single teacher that our daughter did not like.
The Spanish immersion aspect was one of the primary reasons for us to choose Ana's daycare, and we are glad we did so. Our daughter has a strong Spanish vocabulary and she thrived in the nurturing environment this daycare provided since she was eight-months-old. We can't praise this place, its people or their programs enough

My daughter started at Ana's in-home daycare when she was 4 months old and transitioned to Ana's Kids when she was two (she is now 2.5). I am so thankful that we were able to find Ana and I wish I had adequate words to express how much Ana's Kids and the people who care for children there mean to our family. I was so distraught to have to go back to work after the birth of our child, but it was not in the cards to be a stay at home mom. Ana and Gloria (the main carers for my daughter her first two years) were the next best thing to being at home with her, because I could tell how much they loved (and still love!) our baby and she loves them!! Our daughter is so very happy at Ana's Kids and is learning so much every day. There are times she cries when I pick her up in the afternoon because she wants to stay and keep having fun, and I've witnessed other kiddos doing the same thing in the parking lot! Before coming to Ana's Kids, I toured other daycares... and was distraught by what I saw. I can safely say Ana's Kids is far and away the best I've seen! Ana's Kids has allowed my husband and me to have 100% confidence that our daughter is loved, nurtured, and educated in a clean, safe environment during the day while we're at work. Thank you, everyone at Ana's Kids!

Ana Benavides, owner of Ana's Kids in-home day care center, is the current childcare provider for both of my children. My son started there in August 2011 when he was three months old. My daughter started there in November 2013, also at three months old. I could not be happier with the care they receive from Ana.
My husband and I work full time at fairly demanding jobs and being able to stay at home to raise children is not a realistic option for either of us. In the years leading up to getting pregnant we heard stories from many friends about the struggle to find childcare in the JJC area. Besides giving birth, arranging childcare was the second biggest worry on my mind.
We spent time researching nanny daycare options in area. The fact that some else would be playing such a major role in our children's lives made this decision even more important ill our eyes. After weeks of visiting daycares in the area, we met Ana. The care provided by Ana and her associates has been such a blessing in our lives. She provides an organized and professional daycare service in which I feel like my children's daily needs are not only adequately met, they are exceeded. I can literally see how happy they are and they are learning new things every day.
In a perfect world I would be able to be a stay-at-home mom .. However, in reality, having my kids with Ana is about as perfect as it gets. I would recommend any daycare setting 11m by Ana Benevides to anyone.

My son used to go to Ana's Kids a few months back but we had to relocate for my husband's job. Although it's been a while I can't help but think of the ladies who took care of my son. He was three months at the time.
I could tell the ladies treated him well since his face lit up when I dropped him off. After only one week, my son was able to sooth himself to sleep without me rocking him to sleep. He also slept for more then five minutes at a time which was unheard of when I was on maternity leave. On the last day, Sylvia, one of the workers cried because she had such a strong bond with my son. We do miss her dearly and everyone there. Since leaving Ana's it's been difficult to find a school for infants with such great routine. The Spanish immersion was a bonus!!

Our daughter started at Ana's when she was 4 months old, and from day one we felt like she was in wonderful hands. Every single day when I pick her up she looks so happy. I can see how much she loves her friends and teachers, and how much they love her. She's growing and developing so well, and the schedule they create for her is so wonderful, it's made it very easy to implement at home too. I really appreciate the communication that all the staff provides. Even though we can't be with her all the time, we feel like we always know what's going on, and how she's been doing. We would recommend Ana's to anyone looking for childcare for their infant or toddler.
