6125 W. Waveland Ave., Chicago, IL

Costimate: $201/wk

My name is Eva Makris and I am the owner and program director of Early Milestones Home Daycare. I have a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Illinois in Chicago and I am a mother of three wonderful children. My goal as a child-care provider is to provide children with a comfortable and nurturing learning environment that feels just like home while their parents work and/or attend school. I believe that children learn best through play and I understand that a child s play time is essential to his cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development. Early Milestones Home Daycare opened its doors in April of 2016. Our child care provides high quality, personalized, and reliable child care services for the professional working families of the northwest side of Chicago. We are a licensed day care home that operates under a small license capacity, in order to give more one-on-one attention to the children in our care. Our child care meets all the requirements established by the State of Illinois. We are First-Aid and CPR Certified. We use the main level of our house to care for the children and do not have a t.v. in the day care - only toys and educational activities!. We provide two healthy meals and snacks per day. Our meals include a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Early Milestones Home Daycare is designed to provide both a nurturing home atmosphere along with dedicated areas for the children to actively learn and play in. Furthermore, we maintain a low teacher to child ratio. Therefore, your child will receive the kind of close attention he or she deserves, nurturing a foundation for development and helping to enable your child to reach his/her full potential.

Having my daycare in River Grove is very convenient for the children's families as I am close to major highways and also the train station. I offer a fun-loving family environment for all the children and an open door to their families. We enjoy doing arts & crafts, daily walks to the park, playing in my fenced yard (weather permitting), circle learning time (books, flash cards, songs), dress-up / free play, a scheduled day full of fun. My house is pet-free and smoke-free. I strive to make the children feel as comfortable in my home as they would be in their own. As a DCFS licensed provider I am CPR & First Aid certified, also certified in other various topics such as proper food handling & SIDS, & I take early childhood classes on-line. My house is up to code with the fire dept as well with the police dept, all furniture & TV's are anchored to the wall. Separate entrance & exit are provided for the day children and their family.

My name is Mary. I have been married for 19 years, and we have an amazing 15 year old son. I have a group home daycare with DCFS License since April, 2001. I obtained my Early Childhood Education Associate on December, 2013. My daycare program is NAFCC Accredited and is a Quality Counts Three Star Rated Program. We provide nutritional meals and snacks, and we are regulated by Association for Child Development Food Program. I have the joy to work every day with two wonderful women. We welcome every day diverse families and children in our bilingual daycare program. Our goal is to provide the highest quality child care. We achieve this through a combination of education, experience, a positive attitude and most importantly a love of children.

My home is a safe and happy place where children can learn and grow physically, emotionally, intellectually and socially at their own pace. We provide the children under our care with opportunities to learn with mixed aged groups where they can feel safe, loved and can begin to build a positive self-image, in a clean and interesting environment. We encourage children's curiosity, creativity, confidence, independence, discovery, cooperation, and language. We believe in the value of playing. Through play children will learn cognitive, language, physical and social skills. Every day at Little Angels Home Daycare has an element of free play. We encourage the children to use their imagination and provide an area with costumes for dress up and have a gorgeous kitchen for pretend play. We promote role playing, storytelling and join the children at play.

We love music and dancing and incorporate these elements into every day. Some days the children and we play instruments, sing songs, have dance parties or just listen to music from all genres. We believe in complementing the parent/ child relationship and maintaining a caring and responsible value system. Promoting parent involvement is essential to develop partnership between child, parent and teacher. Parents are welcome to participate in daycare activities. I believe in respecting any family culture and beliefs, giving them the opportunity to feel free to share or give any comments or ideas for the program. As Daycare Providers we believe that every child will develop different.

We believe that each child is an individual with his own special interest and abilities. Our program promotes social, cognitive, emotional and physical growth.
