Our Story

Diana Moreno’s journey in childcare is one of passion, dedication, and a deep-seated belief in the transformative power of nurturing young minds. Holding a bachelor’s degree from CSULB, Diana ventured into the hospital field, only to realize that her true calling was in childcare. This epiphany led her back to the world of daycare—a field she loves deeply and considers foundational in building a child’s future.

At Daycare Ladera Ranch, we welcome newborns to school-aged children, offering flexible rates based on the duration of care and the age of your child. Understanding the importance of finding the perfect childcare environment, Diana strives to make every child feel at home, loved, and poised to achieve their greatest potential.

Mission Statement

Our mission at Daycare Ladera Ranch is to provide exceptional childcare that prioritizes the well-being, safety, and developmental needs of each child in our care. Through a blend of structured learning and free play, we aim to foster independence, creativity, and social skills, preparing our little ones for a bright future. We are committed to working closely with families to ensure that every child receives personalized attention, nurturing their unique talents and abilities in a loving and supportive setting.

Helping Your Child Explore, Grow, & Learn

At Daycare Ladera Ranch, we create an environment where curiosity leads the way, encouraging your child to explore, grow, and learn every day. Through interactive play, educational activities, and creative expression, we guide our little ones on a journey of discovery and development.

Our personalized approach ensures that every child receives the support and opportunities they need to flourish, building confidence, skills, and a lifelong love for learning in these formative years.

What We Offer


Our curriculum is carefully crafted to cater to the individual needs of each age group, ensuring that every child benefits from a balanced approach to early education. We combine the best practices in early childhood education with a deep understanding of the developmental stages of children to create an enriching, engaging, and effective learning experience.


Ages 0-2

Our infant program focuses on creating a warm, safe, and nurturing environment where our youngest members can thrive. With personalized care, we support the crucial developmental milestones of babies, from sensory exploration to early mobility, ensuring they receive the foundation they need for a healthy start.

Ages 2-3.5

For toddlers, our program is designed to foster independence, social skills, and language development. Through interactive play, engaging activities, and a structured yet flexible routine, we encourage our toddlers to explore their environment, learn to express themselves, and build meaningful relationships with their peers.

Ages 3-4.5

As children prepare for preschool, our program shifts focus towards more structured learning opportunities while still emphasizing play. We introduce early literacy, math concepts, and science exploration to spark curiosity and prepare them for the next stage of their educational journey, all within a supportive and fun environment.


From parents’ date night options to festive holiday painting and baking events, we create opportunities for fun, learning, and making memories. These gatherings not only strengthen the bonds between our families but also add an extra layer of joy and creativity to our children’s experience with us. Join us as we celebrate the seasons, special occasions, and the everyday moments that make childhood wonderful.


What Our Families are Saying

Diana is absolutely amazing! We are first time parents and the thought of sending our 16 week old to daycare was nerve-wracking, to say the least. We met with a few different providers, and in the end felt an instant connection with Diana and did not hesitate choosing her for our childcare needs.

We are so incredibly glad to have found Diana at Nana’s Daycare and highly recommend her to other parents!

Diana does a great job keeping the infants she cares for well occupied – from tummy time, to mirror time, to puppet time, she gives them lots of variety so they never get bored. I also love that she has a mobile app that she uses to send me updates throughout the day.
