What Parents Are Saying About Our Day Care/Preschool

My son has attended ESDS since its opening. The transition was seamless and I always felt confident that he was learning and very well cared for! Devin is now in the Pre-K program and is growing and learning everyday. We are so incredibly thankful we found this program when we did! He’s more than prepared for kindergarten! We loved it so much we decided to start our younger daughter just before she turned 2. Her progress and growth has been amazing! She and Devin love to read, engage more socially and love going to school! I don’t have enough good things to say about Lucy, the owner, and her staff. They are incredible and have gone above and beyond from day one.

Editor’s note: Tami’s third child is now enrolled at ESDS.

The school is so much more than a daycare! My son has been going to Evelyn Street since he was 12 weeks old. He is now a happy and thriving 18-month-old! This place hits all of my must haves for a daycare and then some!!! There are cameras, a secure entrance, its clean, its organic, its big and most importantly it has amazing staff. People who truly care about my son. Ms. Lucy, the director, is an angel! She is so open, friendly and constantly communicates all changes! Everyone here has become my son’s family.

My child has been attending Evelyn Street Day School for eleven months now and it is the best choice I have made as a mom yet. Not only has my son flourished developmentally but I know that he is safe, learning and having a ball with the staff and his classmates. The directors and teachers all make me feel at ease when I leave him in their care. That peace of mind is priceless!

Michaela M., Wallington

My daughter attended Evelyn Street and now my son does. The care and love they receive here is beyond measurable. It is a top notch school that really prepares your child for kindergarten. The teachers are amazing!

Christina D., Paramus

The teachers’ attention to detail is outstanding and genuine care for the children is so clear each and everyday. Lucy and her team are truly an extension of my family and I am so grateful to have found Evelyn Street Day School.
