Santa Cruz’s newest company, A Mother’ s Place, is set to open soon. We provide high-quality customer service in a family-friendly setting to support the emotional, physical, and social well-being of mothers and their young children.
The principal, Emili Willet, the proud mother of a nine-month-old son, wants to fulfill her passion to help and support other mothers in the community. Emili has a Harvard Graduate School Master’s in Child Development, and 15 years progressive management experience working directly with children and families. Most recently, she served as Chief of Operations of a childcare management company in the Silicon Valley, and as a Finance Account Manager for the largest corporate childcare center in California for Cisco Systems. The Cisco center, which was a start up project that served over 500 children and had 125 teachers and administrators, was also a successful venture. Emili is looking to create a company that offers a service to families. She wants a fun environment, top-of-the-line products, supportive environments, and excellent customer service. Santa Cruz is lacking this service. This gives Emili the opportunity to use her expertise in child development, finance management, as well as her passion for working with children and families.
The mother’s place will provide a full range services, including parenting and babysitting classes, childbirth classes, children’s play classes, “Mommy & Me” classes, pre-natal yoga classes, and planned birthday parties.

This location is easy to access via a freeway, has parking available and offers excellent customer service.
