What Our Families are Saying

Mr. Walquer and Mama Kate as our kids lovingly call Kate have transformed our vision of childcare. Their care for our children far exceeded our expectations. They have taught us how to take a step back and allow our children to take appropriate risks. We value the honest conversations and feedback to nurture the relationship between parent and child, parent and caregiver and caregiver and child.

~Jessica Gomez

[My kid] has been teaching his cousins Spanish and is so proud of having his 13 year old cousin asking him “¿Cómo se dice?” so frequently and he has answers. A huge thank you for expanding his palate (patiently) en escuela.  He’s tried and LIKED every meal we’ve eaten at his Aunt and Uncle’s home, including Japanese food that looked “different”. The amount of growth he’s had thanks to Kate and Walquer is priceless!

~Current MdN Parent

My kids felt safe, happy and so, so loved with Maestra Kate and Maestro Walquer. As a parent, I was grateful to have such deep trust that my kids would be given space for creative play and kid-led exploration, time outside, and nutritious food. We were so fortunate to have found a home-based care provider where nurturing bilingualism was as important as it was in my own home.

~Katie Hayden
