This facility is co-owned by Maribel and Carol Hadnot, a mother and daughter powerful duo. Carol has the same passion and love her mother carries in her heart for every kid that comes through the doors. She has a genuine enjoyment of working with kids and her energetic personality is contagious. From the time she was a little girl, Maribel dreamed of finding a way to help parents and children have a place that will meet their needs while becoming a safe haven in this high-demand world we live in.

Your little hands are in great hands!
Take it from our parents

I have trusted Little Bears with both of my daughters for many years. As a Marine Corps veteran that had both of my children while active duty, I can honestly say I don’t know what I would’ve or would do if I hadn’t found Little Bears Tender Care to help ease my mind. During long work days and deployments I’ve never had to question if my children were in the best hands possible! From 6weeks old, to now 7yrs and 11yrs old, I have had peace of mind knowing that they are in the most capable hands. The preschool class with Ms. Yolanda is unmatched in preparing little ones for school, and the older kids always have fun! You know it’s a good place when my 11yr old wants to be at daycare! Thank you Little Bears for all the support, love, and care that you have shown my children over the years!

During the developing years of myself and my siblings, Little Bears Day Care provided a safe, consistent learning environment for my family and so many others as well. If you are looking for professional and reliable child care, then Little Bears is the place to go. I’m beyond grateful for the delicate care they provided over the years. I can say undoubtedly that they left a lasting positive effect on my life.

The best daycare my son has ever been in. They make it so special for the children. Everyday when my son comes home he never has anything bad to say. During this covid they are very careful by temperature checks upon entering and limiting exposure. Very clean facility. I feel very comfortable having my son stay the day there. Highly recommended.

THE BEST DAY CARE IN SAN DIEGO COUNTY! My son loves it. He feels right at home, always ready to go and “play with his friends!” great facility with a warm home feeling. Arts and crafts, toys, books, play areas, celebrating the children’s birthdays! A great place for kids I’m happy to have my son here. Very appreciative

I went to this daycare as a kid and I always felt cared for. We went for many years. If I still lived in California I would send my daughter there.

They provide such a safe and caring service, my kids feel like they’re getting dropped off with family instead of a daycare 💓
