Early milestones daycare had been our son's daycare since he was 3 months old (he's almost 2 now) and Eva has taken such great care of him. He came to her pretty weak at tummy time and with her help, we saw great improvements in his head strength. Any needs we had or concerns were handled very professionally and it's obvious to us that he gets the best loving care we could hope for. Sometimes communication can be frustrating, but I suppose that's the case with any parent/caregiver relationship. We would recommend EMD to anyone.

We are very pleased with the care our daughter receives at Early Milestones Daycare! Our daughter has been going to Early Milestones since she was 3 months old and has grown into a happy, healthy, well-adjusted, thriving toddler. She cant wait to get in the door in the morning and see what new adventures await her at daycare! We highly recommend Early Milestones Daycare.

Eva cared for our daughter since she was only 4 months old. She was very understanding of our schedule and needs. Our baby would always get excited to go to the daycare. The best thing about Eva was how clean and neat she kept her place. I would highly recommend Eva's day care.

I HIGHLY recommend Eva & Early Milestones Home Daycare. She's been taking care of our son for the past year and a half and we couldn't be happier with the care, compassion, fun and expertise she provides. Early Milestones is a very clean, bright and welcoming home daycare and i always look forward to the warm welcome from Eva each morning. She's very transparent and timely with her communication, providing us with daily updates at pick-up about his naps, activities and delicious food that he eats. Our son loves going to see Eva and his friends at Early Milestones, and we feel so confident and happy about leaving him in such capable hands.

Our son has absolutely loved being with Eva at Early Milestones! She is attentive, organized and energetic. Our son is happy when we get there and is always having fun when I pick him up. It is so nice to have found a daycare where it feels like they are a partner!

Our family loves Eva at Ealry Milestones Home Daycare! You can tell right away that she is very experienced in working with children of all ages - she teaches us new things everyday! At home we feed our children all organic and whole foods so it was a relief to find Eva where she cooks everything fresh and does not use any processed foods. That is very hard to come by at home daycares and centers! While providing our children with the closest thing to "home" possible, Eva is also educational for our older child. She has learned so much at early milestones! And as parents we love that Eva provides a daily infant report for everything our littlest one did that day. Eva is very business savvy and will work with what your family needs.

My daughter started going to Early Milestones at 5 months and I really feel like she is engaged and well taken care of. When I come to pick her up she is always clean and smiling. I am so glad we found Eva! She has been such a wonderful help for our family.

Eva is extremely difficult to work and communicate with. She is inexperienced and reactionary, thus constantly changing her policies. She then chooses to explain these new policies to you at length at morning drop-off when you are trying to get to work on time. She is not clear in her explanations, which further complicates matters. She also makes endless new requests of you concerning bibs, sheets, diapers, wipes, etc. and refuses to simply put these things in writing to save time for busy working parents. It is exhausting to deal with her. She is inflexible and unable to see beyond her own perception. For example, we were ridiculed for wanting our child to eat organic. Eva claims that she "does not believe in organic foods in America." The bottom line for this provider is money and having things her way, with little to no regard for the parents she services. You will start to wonder if you are the one working for her. Don't be fooled by her "fancy" website as things at early milestones are not as "customizable" to your child's needs as advertised.

We LOVE Early Milestones and Eva!!! Our son truly loves coming to day care every day and we see the growth and progress in every aspect of his life! Eva truly cares for our son and is amazing at providing an environment that is safe, fun, interactive, social, and developmentally appropriate. I can't say enough nice things about Early Milestones!

Eva is a wonderful caregiver! Our daughter absolutely loves going to her house to learn and play! As a first time mom I was very nervous about finding the right caregiver for my daughter but the very first time I met with Eva I felt at ease. She is extremely knowledgeable about early childhood development and learning. I love picking up my daughter at the end of the day and hearing about all of the fun things she learned at Eva's house! My 2 year old asks if we can go to Eva's house even on weekends, she loves playing with the other children! I would recommend Early Milestones to anyone looking for a safe, happy, home daycare for their child. My family is truly lucky to have found Early Milestones!

Early Milestones is a fantastic home daycare. Eva is caring and attentive to each child's needs. She has a master's degree in Early Childhood and it is clear that the kids are learning and growing. I also LOVE that there is a Greek immersion option as well. I highly recommend Early Milestones for your childcare needs.
