Here's what parents say about Les BouTchou...
This Nursery is amazing


This Nursery is amazing. It is run by Vanessa who is an extremely caring leader, and runs a very tight ship! This nursery is at her home so your child will feel safe and comfortable. They speak both French and English so don't worry too much if you don't. It's great for children under 5 to experience two languages. 


She has developed and looked after my young daughter since she was 3 months old up until 3. She gave me great advise on child development, challenges and always listened and cared as she has a great connection with the kids. They do Yoga, cook together, celebrate occasions and birthdays and all the staff there are kind, experienced and on top of it will all the children.


I would recommend this nursery to anyone.

We LOVE Les BouTchou!


We LOVE Les BouTchou! My son, now 16 months, has been attending this home daycare since he was 3 months, and has really been thriving. They are flexible, caring and fun. When we drop him off in the morning, he walks into the back room, picks up some toys and barely waves goodbye. As a first-time mom, I've learned a lot from Vanessa, the owner, and Alix, who has worked there for several years. They speak French with all the kids, too, which is great for his language development. He has lots of fun there, and is always happy when we pick him up at the end of the day.

Loved and nurtured​

Both my children went to Les BouTchou and had a wonderful experience!  They were loved and nurtured there.  They were always involved in some sort of project, whether it was gardening, art, and cooking.  They even did yoga once a week!  We felt they had ample time for play and developed great social skills.  It was wonderful having the teachers speak to them in French and in sign language.  We miss that place!

Thoughtful care


Les Bou Tchou is a great independant mom-owned and operated daycare in Emeryville. We sent both our kids here and would highly recommend to anyone in the area. There's a lot of real love and thoughtful care happening here. Vanessa and her team are like a second mom to our kids. Just a great day care.

I highly recommend this place!


Boutchou is a relatively recent daycare in Emeryville. The main caregiver is Vanessa Kahn, a french woman. I am going to Boutchou with my kids since 2 years, and i feel very happy to drop them off each morning in this small and warm, home-based day care. Vanessa will speak french to the kids if you'd like. She has a nice backyard with a big play structure. She does art, reads stories, plays, all you wish for you little one. She also uses american sign language with the kids! I highly recommend this place.
