LiL' Canyon Child Care-
My name is Diana Mujica and I am the child care Provider/Teacher for this Home facility.
I am 40 years old, graduated from Chula Vista High School in 1993. I am married to my wonderful, supportive husband, Oscar, and have 3 spectacular kids: Anthony, Rosy, and Julian. One of the main reasons I started Family Child Care in 1999 was my kids. I was a working as a Dental Assistant with my second child on the way, when I thought, 'What can I do to stay home with my kids?' I was a worried parent just like everyone else...
At that time I said, 'Child Care.' From that point forward, I started going to trainings, assisting at my mom's daycare, and preparing myself so when our daughter arrived, I would be ready. During this time I started arranging our home, and soon after that I got my license to care for 8 kids!
I loved it! One year later I wanted to expand, so we moved to a bigger house in National City, CA. that had a huge Canyon backyard with over an acre lot. It was then that I decided to name my Child Care 'Lil' Canyon Child Care.' After the move, I extended my license to care for 14 kids. Years later we bought our second home in Chula Vista, CA. This home is located off one of the main roads named 'Telegraph Canyon Road,' so the name continues.
On June 1st 2012 i got my Associates in Child Development !!

About the Child Care:
Our home in Chula Vista, is located in the Otay Ranch area, in a gated community. Now 16 years later, I am still in business!
I love what I do, and don't regret changing careers! I enjoy teaching, interacting with kids, and making a difference in their lives.
Once your child is enrolled in LiL' Canyon Child Care, all meals are provided free of charge with enrollment into the Chicano Federation Food Program. Please call for further information.
The only challenging part about this job is getting attached to the children and then having saying good-bye when they leave to Kindergarten. I am comforted knowing that when the children leave here, they will be fully prepared for all that Kindergarten has to offer.
I accept government programs such as YMCA,
Cal Works, CDA, Naccrra and others. Please call for further information.
