Our son started at Ana's at 16 months old. We visited several day care centers and home day cares before we found Ana's. As soon as we visited, we knew it was exactly what we wanted for our son. Her home is completely dedicated to the children. She has an indoor play area that looks like a preschool classroom and a dining area with a kids table and chairs so the children can share all their meals and snacks together. Her garage and backyard are converted into more play spaces for the kids with a sandbox, play houses and a tricycle path. Over the two years my son has been with Ana we have seen him grow into a confident and well-socialized child. He started off very introverted, but has bloomed under her care. Absolutely everything she does with the children (play, meals, discipline) is exactly what I would want for my child. I have taken so many ideas from her and used them at home because they work so well for my son. I will always be so grateful for the care she has given my son over the last two years and will remember his time at Ana's fondly.

Highly recommended daycare! My daughter has been attending Ana??s daycare now for over a year and a half and she absolutely loves it. We were blessed to find a very safe and caring environment with absolutely fantastic teachers and very healthy fresh food. When I hear from my 3 years daughter every day, even on weekends, "Mommy, can I go to my Ana?? it??s needless to say anything else.

When we moved to South Pasadena and were looking for a daycare for our 2 year old son, we felt lost. Nothing seemed right, or available.
We feel so lucky to have found Anna through a friend and for her to have an opening for our son.
Anna does not advertise and the families attending are mainly from referrals.
This place is the highest quality childcare one can ask for. Absolutely a hidden treasure

It is with great privilege that I write a review for Ana Arsenault and her daycare facility, Sticky Fingers. My daughter Juliet has attended since September 2008 until present. She is only leaving because she is now 4 years old and ready to begin pre-kindergarten. My husband and I have found Ana to be a generous, kind and loving person who can be strong while maintaining order and safety as well.

The idea of sending our daughter into someone else??s care was not a decision that my husband and I took lightly or made casually. Our 2-year-old daughter had been at home with a nanny and the thought of sending her out into a different environment was a little scary. We began our search with trepidation. Although Ana came highly recommended by my sister-in-law, that offered comfort but not enough to completely put us at ease. However, after our first meeting with Ana we knew we could relax.

Today I have only positive things to say about our entire experience with Ana. Her house is warm and comfortable. And although it??s filled with toys and books it remains clean and uncluttered. Menus and licenses are posted clearly for viewing. Though these qualities make for a sound daycare Juliet has received so much more.

Juliet has had bouts of separation anxiety and Ana has been great at determining the best line of action to put her at ease. Whether it??s quickly moving her into the routine with the other children, getting her engaged or offering a little quiet time and space ?? allowing her to join when she is ready. She has a way of sensing the appropriate action. By the time I call to check on Juliet, she is already happily playing with the other children.

I think the number one priority for children this age is to feel safe and cared for. Ana has managed to create this environment and after over 20 years of doing so, I believe she still enjoys the challenges and is truly committed to it. I??m sure that is why she does such an incredible job.

It is with a bit of sadness that we leave Ana??s care and move Juliet on to her next phase of development but we will always cherish our days at Sticky Fingers and treasure our warm memories. Any child left in Ana Arsenault??s fine care is truly fortunate.

We love Arsenault!

Our children were in 5 pre-schools collectively and we visited close to thirty schools over a five year period. Arsenault is easily the best of them all. We needed to pull our daughter from Huntington Drive Pre-School due to MAJOR health and safety concerns. We were referred to Arsenault by a neighbor. From our first meeting with Ms. Ana, we knew we found the perfect place for our three year old.

Ana and her staff...

- Treat the children wonderfully. Two years after leaving the school, my daughter still talks about Ms. Ana with adoration.

- Teach the children to be respectful and caring of their peers and adults. Thanks to Ana our daughter became wonderfully compassionate toward her peers. Ana has a way of making all the children really care for each other.

- Provide healthy food and encourage good habits. There are none of the packaged foods you see at other day cares. Arsenault was able to get our daughter to eat, and prefer, fruits and vegetables over candy and processed carbs. Something my wife and I couldn't accomplish.

- Prepare children for pre-school. When our daughter started to Calvary Pre-School it went incredibly smooth. Ana was able to build the confidence in our child, and with her peers that transitioned with her, to be able to transition to the larger classes and learning environment, without incident.

- Accept babies! It is so hard to find Day Cares that take infant's. Arsenault does and take great care of them.

Please consider Arsenault. You will be glad you did.

I was never a fan of someone other than family watching your children. On top of that, you always hear about so many day care horror stories.

9-10 years ago I was convinced into enrolling my then 2 yr old needed to learn how to interact with other children and she needed day care. Although resistant, I agreed to send her to Ana Arsenault's place. From the beginning I noticed a positive change in my daughter. She learned her colors, how to get along with others, how to share and more importantly she was on a schedule The transition to pre-school was seamless.

7 years later, when it was time to send my second child also 2 at the time there was no question where she was going to go. I didn't bother looking into other day care's because Ana was the hands down choice. Again, instantly there was a positive change in my daughter.

I live in Pasadena and make the short drive to Alhambra because I feel that she is the best in the San Gabriel Valley.I can't think of a single negative!

I highly recommend this place.

Our son was with Ana's daycare from 14 months to almost four years. He just started preschool and all of the teachers have remarked at how well he's doing. I have Ana to thank for preparing him.

Her years of experience and knowledge was reassuring to us as first-time parents. The children's health and safety is her number one concern. She encourages imaginative play--indoors and out, and teaches the kids the importance of compassion, sharing, being helpful, and taking responsibility. We know that nutritious meals and snacks are served every day, and she encourages the kids to try everything.

We completely trust Ana, and are grateful to have had her these past few years to start our son on the right path. He has learned so much--interacting with other kids, listening and following instructions, being a good person, and having fun! We highly recommend her to other families.

My 3-year old son started at this day care six months ago. We are so happy with the owner, Anna, and the staff.

My son just loves it and leaves me without any protests--something my older childen rarely did at preschools or with in-home nannies.

Anna has a gentle but consistent schedule and the children eat healthy foods, learn their colors, shapes, and, of course, socialization.

The facility is clean and well organized with a quaint little backyard, sand box, little path for trikes, toys, and lots of shade. It really is the day care you have been dreaming of.

In short, I highly recommend this daycare.

We highly recommend this daycare to everyone. We wouldn't think of sending our kids any place else. Ana is amazing. She provides a nurturing, educational and fun day care. The kids all love her and the parents too - She can get any infant or child on a schedule. I can't say enough wonderful thing about her and her daycare. And I can't think of a single negative thing.

It's always hard to leave your child with anyone. The moment I met Ana and visited her home, I felt at ease and completely comfortable. My daughter loves Ana and has never cried about not wanting to go to 'school'. My daughter started at Ana's when she was 3 months and she' 3 years old now. I'm always amazed when she comes home and tells me stories. Her vocabulary is amazing and she knows all her colors, numbers, fruits and veggies in English and Spanish. I'm so thankful to have Ana as part of our lives....she is just a fantastic person - with great energy.

We couldn't have asked for a more loving and caring environment for our kids. Ana has created such a beautiful space for the kids to learn, explore and have fun at the same time. I believe the experience our children are receiving while being in this group setting will be so helpful as they get older and will allow for an easier transition when they start preschool and kindergarten. It's one of those places where the minute you walk in you just know it's the right place. It is located just on the border of South Pasadena with easy access from Huntington Blvd. for those living in adjacent areas.
