Aunties Place Family Daycare

“With the primary goal of providing a nurturing and stimulating learning/play environment, Aunties Place Family Daycare is your child’s home away from home.”


Hello and welcome to Aunties Place! We are sisters, Carol Maniscalco and Diahann Orseth. Together we have created Aunties Place Family Daycare, a licensed in-home daycare that meets all the requirements of the safety, health and nutritional standards. We have lovingly opened our home to care for children newborn to school age.

Centrally located in Petaluma on 1/3 of an acre and nestled safely and conveniently off of the main street, we have created a fun indoor and outdoor environment.

Between the two of us we have raised nine beautiful and successful children. More than a job, and as caring mothers, aunties and a grandmother, it is an opportunity for us to share our passion for life while we inspire, engage and awaken the wonder inside each and every child.

We believe that for a child to be successful in his or her development, it requires teamwork from both the parents and the daycare. We are a play-based program that focuses child enhancement through literature, music and art.
We believe that children learn best through natural consequences, curiosity and experiences. We have designed activities to provide for a child’s mind, body and soul. Experimentation, creativity and discovery are all encouraged in a safe and healthy environment.

Dedicated to guiding and nurturing children in their developmental growth, we encourage the child’s desire to learn through hands-on exploration and creative expression in a structured environment. With flexible full and part time schedules, Aunties Place is your child’s home away from home. We are excited to partner in this new adventure with you and encourage you to contact the staff at anytime.
