"We have had a very positive experience with Dima's Daycare. Our son started there when he was 14 months and had a bit of a rough transition. During this time Dima was patient and helpful. She carried him around in a carrier, laid down next to him and sang him to sleep, and she supported me with my numerous check in calls/concerns. Now our son is 2 and a half and he is happy to go to Dima's almost everyday. (In fact, he often cries when it is time to go home.) The daycare offers a very nurturing environment while also fostering the kids to be independent. There are many toys and projects that the kids enjoy, and a wide array of books - constantly changing with selections from the library. The kids spend much of the time outdoors - going to the Farmer's Market, 2 great neighborhood parks and into her incredible (must see) garden wonderland in her backyard. Dima is flexible and she is open to communicate about my child with me. She seems to love her work and clearly knows and loves the kids. We are starting our 8-month old at Dima's in the fall!"
"Our experience with Dima has been very positive. She cultivates a family environment with her daycare and works very well with the kids. Her backyard with the play structure and gardens is a wonderful asset for children to explore and play."
"No matter how chaotic your morning or your workday, when we walk into Dima's home to pick up our daughter, it is instant calm. She has a presence. One could call her the baby whispoerer. After a decade of knowing Dima, we have had all three of our children in her care and consider her an integral part of our family."
"Dima brings a nurturing heart, fun activities, beautiful garden and warm atmosphere to my child each day. We are thankful for Dima and her daycare."
"Dima's house and backyard are almost exactly what we were looking for, and Dima, Claire, Katie, and all the rest of the teachers have been fantastic, super helpful for specific requests, and generally super awesome all around."
