There is no better way to describe this center than to use the term amazing! We searched and searched for a facility that would offer us all of the things on our insanely long list of requirements and Maranatha hit all and then some! We researched a minimum of 40 facilities ranging from corporate to private. To say that I have high expectations is an understatement, but upon entering the facility I was instantly impressed. First of all the fact that the entry is by a code lock only made me feel that regardless of the amazing location, people who are unwanted will not be entering. But as we continued on and I saw the way the classrooms are set up to be the best for each age group and the fact that they have a fantastic outside play area in addition to the great activities they offer in each class, I was consistently growing more and more excited that we may have discovered our new "home away from home". Considering that these people will be a huge part of helping in the primary day to day upbringing of our son, I will not accept anything less than the best. Maranatha is just that! I could go on and on for hours about all the amazing things this staff and more-so additions to our family offer to the children they care for each day but the bottom line is, as an educator who values not only the fun in young children's days, learning is also crucial and a huge part of the day to day here but in a way that the kids LOVE participating. They sing songs, dance, play, read books, learn manners, and the list is truly endless. Our son isn't even 2 yet and can tell you all his letters and their sounds, can count to 10, discuss with others his opinions on things and so much more. None of the things Maranatha does is forced, these "teachers" love what they do, they love the kids and they give 100% every day.

I must say, at this point, after all the research and the background checks and history checks we have done, we really have done all the work for you and if you choose to go to another facility you are missing out on such outstanding care, learning, and love... that for me is the biggest reason our son will remain here until he goes to a traditional elementary school. Even then, I hope by that point they will be a full elementary facility....

I searched high and low for child care for my twin baby girls. They have attended Maranatha since they were 4 months old and I cannot express how happy I am we found this facility!

We're paying twice the bill for everything we need for our babies, but not the cost of their daycare. No one beats Maranatha's sibling discount!!

Maranatha is also the only daycare facility that understands that not all parents have set schedules! Most daycare facilities would only take my babies on the same days every week. With our shifting schedules, that did not work for us. Maranatha is the best facility for your flexing schedule. They have been there for me with last minute requests and taken my girls with open arms.

I enjoy and look forward to the few minutes I get to chat with the staff before I run off to work. The staff is awesome!

Our Daughter has been attending Maranatha since she was less than a year old and is now 3 years old. We have loved this school so much. She always comes home with stories to tell and artwork and more. The staff is so very friendly, helpful, and accomodating. We are always greeted by smiles. Our Daughter loves going here and I would recommend this to anyone. We love this school so much that even though we moved from Yorba Linda to Placentia we still drive the opposite way from work in the morning just so we can continue our Daughter's learning here.

My grandmother watched my son twice a week and then she suffered a stroke. Suddenly we were put in a position to find a preschool very quickly! I researched, talked to friends, and finally my dad recommended Maranatha. I took a tour the next day and loved what I witnessed! A day later my son started in the 2 year old classroom. It was hard for both him and me as I had never left him at a preschool before and he suffered from separation anxiety. But thank God for the staff and teachers at Maranatha!! They made it as seamless as possible for us to transition from family care to preschool care (which, honestly they treat like "family") My son "graduated" to the 3/4 classroom last year and absolutely loves Ms. Kathy! Flexible, affordable, family-that is Maranatha in a nutshell.

Maranatha Child Development Center is an amazing center/preschool. The rooms are very clean and the staff cares for each child individually according to their needs. The meals are fresh and prepared and are healthy. The playground is large, and safely enclosed, all overlooking the river behind it.

The owners are so passionate about child care that it's great to see someone who genuinely cares about the education and development of a child. Defiantly recommended, and worth every dollar.

My son, now 18 months, has been with Maranatha CDC since he was 4 months old. Felicity and her staff have ALWAYS been willing to talk about how my son is doing and to help with great suggestions whenever I had a question about a phase he was going through (I'm a first time mom).

You know your child is well loved and cared for when he reaches for his teachers in the morning and doesn't want to leave in the evening. Ms. Rhonda will sing songs to him until she loses her voice, Ms. Jessica will hold him literally all day long if he is feeling particularly needy that day and Ms. Michelle is always so excited to see him in the morning. You can't ask for more dedication to the children.

These are truely wonderful people who love kids and care for yours as much as you would if you could stay home with them. I love the fact that they use the Reggio-Emilio approach because each child is encouraged to pursue what THEY are interested in, which in the case of my son is books and songs. His vocab is leaps and bounds above where he might normally be because his teachers let HIM direct his play. Can't endorse them highly enough. The cost is cheaper than other local daycare's I looked at and the benefits are so much more. As a first time mom having to return to work before I was ready to leave my baby with anyone but family, I was fully satisfied with the quality of the center.

Now, I am more than satisfied. I love it just as much as my son does. I am considering taking a job that will require me to drive in the other direction to get here. And it is TOTALLY worth it.

Maranatha has become a second home to my son. I'm often asked why my child attends a preschool that is not in our neighborhood. The truth is that I felt very comfortable with the owners. In addition, I have had several friends whose children have attended Maranatha and were happy with the child care. Something that is particularly nice about Maranatha is that they are very flexible in terms of schedules. As parents, we are all busy people. The preschool's willingness to make adjustments to accomodate us has been a big asset.

My daughter has attended Maranatha CDC since she was a toddler. She has learned so much and is now more then prepared to venture into Kindergarten next year. She has learned to be independent, kind, and loves to learn. The staff are so attentive to her and get excited right along with her as she learns. I highly recommend Maranatha to families that are looking for a child care center that puts your child as the focus and includes the whole family in any way they can.

Maranatha Child Development and Child Care Center is a second home to our children. The staff is loving and attentive to all the kids. Plus the level of education beats any that my family has encountered.

I have the pleasure and opportunity to share proudly with the world. My name is Carmen and I have 3 boys.

My first two boys never went to peschool because I never found one that would satisfy me. But recently, I joined the gym and Maranatha was highly recommended.

This preschool is a wonderful place for my five year old. He loves it. He has a lot of fun. He looks forward to going to preschool. He learns from different subjects every time. The teachers and all the staff are magnificent people. They are all professional people and extremely kind.

Thank you to all the staff at Maranatha, you guys are awesome! I definitely recommend Maranatha to all the parents that are looking for a safe child care and fun place for our little ones.

Maranatha child care center is a blessing. Being young and involved in such an amazing preschool is definitely something I'm proud of. I agree with the teaching approach and am proud each day I walk in. The environment is uplifting and positive and the children don't want to leave. My co-workers are gifted at what they do and love their jobs. It's not just work, it's what we all love and do.

Our three year old son loves attending Maranatha Child Development Center and as his parents we love that he is learning new and exciting things each day. It is an inviting Preschool/ Childcare Center where the Reggio Emilia Program is taught throughout the school. The teachers are warm and nurturing to all the children at the center.As a parent, it is comforting to see how all the children there are smiling and learnng. Also, as two working parents it is great to have a school that is flexilble with our schedules and meets the needs of our child and us. We highly recommend Maranatha Child Development Center for a rewarding preschool experience.

As a teacher myself, it is always fun to see all the things the kids are doing, and getting to see and interact with.

The teachers are welcoming and willing to talk with and share ideas.

The kids are engaged and excited at all the different activites that are offered.

Even in the toddler room, the kids are happy and interacting with the toys and people around them.

I enjoy visiting Maranatha and watching the smiles and the excitement on the children's faces. And I love watching how involved the entire staff is with every aspect of Maranatha.

Message from Maranatha Child Care Development Center

I truly believe that child care is my calling and I love interacting and working with children and parents. I have 3 wonderful daughters, 2 of them are in college and my youngest daughter is in high school. I really enjoyed and still miss the days when they were little.



I have been in the early childhood education field for more than 10 years. I majored in Early Childhood Education and love this opportunity to create a unique program with our wonderful staff and also reaching out to our community. Together, we have created an environment and program that is warm, welcoming, safe and familiar to young children.



We are so grateful to your family for choosing Marantha Child Development Center. As a team, we will always ask ourselves - are we offering and developing a great program? Are we providing great service and child care to our parents? Are we building a great team? If we are doing these things, I know our program will continue to be a vital part of our community.
