Your Child's Education

Begins Here


From our unique Gentle Entry process to our specialized RIE infant training your baby's care is all about respect for the child and their development.

A toddler's world is full of change and growth. Our program enables your toddler to explore, increase their language skills, and take those first steps towards independence.

Your child is getting ready for school! Now is the time to empower your child to learn to care for themselves, their environment and others.



Baby MacBean Child Care Homes exist to provide a safe, developmentally appropriate environment for infants and toddlers. Our focus is to provide a stimulating early care and education experience which promotes each child's social and emotional growth, as well as physical and cognitive development.


We use an integrated model for the care and education of infants and toddlers using Magda Gerber's respectful approach. In the parents' absence, children need adults who will both nurture and educate them, or act as an educarer. As opposed to a teacher, who educates, and caregiver, who nurtures, the educarer does both; thereby providing a continuum of care from parent to educarer. Providing this continuum from family to childcare is a fundamental component of our program.

"I can't tell you enough how much we appreciate your inspiring service to our family.  I means so much to know that Reilly is in the care of a smart, caring woman that is clearly an expert in her field." 

Erin & Mike

"When my son Ryan was 3 months old, I began my search for a day care provider in the Benicia area.  I was struck by the stark differences in atmosphere, experience, and dedication between the facilities that I visited.  While I believe that every provider I spoke with had the best interests of my infant at heart, I felt that Baby MacBean offered the best care.  Claudia’s continued pursuit of education and her proactive approach to preventing illness and injury to the children in her care definitely put her head and shoulders above the rest.  Not only am I comfortable knowing that my son is in a stimulating environment, I can also rest easy that she is taking every precaution to keep him safe.  She does this through her tireless dedication to bettering herself and increasing her knowledge and awareness regarding childcare issues."


"I wanted to let you know how thankful we are the incredible care that you provide for our son.  Watching Jackson grow and learn every day is truly a miracle, and I know so much of it is because of your work and guidance."
