Ballena Family Child Care began in August 2006 and since then, it has been a pleasure and a privilege to serve the Antelope Valley Community. Walter and Cynthia Ballena, known as Mr. Walter and Ms. Cindy, are the owners. Cynthia is the Director and member of the Antelope Valley Daycare Association.
After moving from the San Fernando Valley to the Antelope Valley, the Ballenas wanted to own a house, settle in with their only son and adopt a baby girl; for medical reasons, Ms. Cindy couldn’t have more children.
Ms. Cindy volunteered for four years at the YMCA. She loved carrying and working with different children and decided that instead of adopting a baby girl, she would be happy with helping others with child care needs. After a year, Ms. Cindy ran the child care by herself and became well known in the community. She decided to increase her child care capacity from eight to 14 children, and Mr. Walter joined her.
Ballena Family Child Care’s staff have completed training and passed all state licensing requirements. Each has taken a variety of workshop courses in child development.
