About the Owner

As the owner and lead caregiver of Busy Bee Playcare, Maria Uzcha has created a safe environment that combines loving care with educational play. 

"As first time parents, it was a nerve-racking feeling, agreeing to send our 3 month old to day care where the providers would end up spending more time with my child than I would during the week.

Having Maria there to greet our son and take care of him made it not an ordeal, but a great part of our son’s day. Maria took such amazing care of him, spending extra time when he struggled with drinking from a bottle, playing with him, and giving him personal attention and care that exceeded my expectations of a daycare provider.  It was clear to us that our son appreciated being in her care as much as we did."

"My daughter loved Maria – so much so that it was often hard to get her to leave at the end of the day.  Maria is warm, caring, patient, and knowledgeable."

— Brigitte

"We were frustrated that all of the daycares we visited lacked the warmth and love that we wanted for our child. The caregivers seemed they were just doing a "job."

Then we found Maria. She combined everything we wanted: play-filled education, a structured environment and, most importantly, loving care. Our son jumps up and down with excitement when he knows he's going to see Maria. We couldn't be happier with our choice."

— Lu and Justin
