About Us


My name is Patricia Sutton, better known as Auntie Paty to the kids. I adore children. I was born and raised in Mexico City. I’ve always had two dreams for myself, to become a teacher and to travel the world. In a way I’ve done both. I went to college in Mexico for two years studying International Relations. However I could not finish because it was too expensive. I had to drop out but thankfully I was given the opportunity to become a flight attendant. I traveled with the airline for 9 year. During my travels I met my husband. I left the airline when I fell in love and got married. I’ve been married for 22 years, and now a devoted mother of two young adults. My second dream became true when my children became teenagers. I was able to go back to school and became a qualified Early Childhood Development: Associate Teacher.  I am trained and certified in first aid and CPR.


My Name is Melissa Silva, better known to the kids as Missy. I was born and raised in Pleasanton. I graduated from Amador Valley High School in 2010. I was given the opportunity to work at Auntie Paty’s Daycare in October 2010.  At first I was not sure about it but after the first week I realized how much I loved kids. I love coming to work every day. I can’t see myself doing anything else. I have been working here for the last three years. I am trained and certified in first aid and CPR.


Auntie Paty has been providing love and care for children of all ages, well establish since 1995 in Pleasanton “Ptown”. Being a devoted mother of two (now 21 and 18) I always wanted my two children to grow up in a big family, with brothers and sisters, so it was a perfect match of working parents and myself to get our children together and have a big happy family, so I can help them and they can help me meeting all our needs. I started the daycare when my son was a month old, watching our next door neighbor’s daughter. When another neighbor asked me to watch their children as well, that’s when I applied for my license. Paty’s child care started as a small, home child care for up to eight children. Suddenly, our Childcare family started to grow. Two of the attending mothers became pregnant, and both of the mothers didn’t want to take their children out from under my care. We talked after hours to find a way for all the children to stay here. So Auntie Paty applied and was approved to become a large home child care for up to fourteen children with an assistant/helper. That was in 2004. From the first time that you walk through the front door, you and your child will become a part of our family.
