My philosophy:
I believe that children learn through exploration and play. Through play based activities, your child will grow socially, emotionally and mentally. I model and practice important skills such as how to handle conflict, how to be a good friend, how to be respectful and how to be social and open to new experiences. I believe in nurturing children through a caring and loving environment that supports the whole child.

My 11 month old has been cared for by Deb since he was 3 months old. We have had such a great experience! Debbie is very clean, organized and timely with pick up and drop off. She cares for my son as If he were her own. She is good about communicating how he is doing throughout the day. Deb also makes it a point to take the kids outside when it's nice out. We have had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend!

My name is Eva M 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 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.

Our daughter (9 mos) loves Eva and going to Early Milestones! She gets the biggest smile on her face when she sees Eva in the morning and she's happy and smiley when we pick her up at the end of the day. We have no doubt that our daughter is well taken care of while she is there. We definitely recommend Eva and Early Milestones!
