Play-Based Learning

I have worked within the educational system for 18 years. I began in early childhood education, it is my passion, and I have always wanted to return to my roots. My working career began in travel and tourism. I then transferred to health care as a Facilitator and Coordinator at Dana Farber Cancer Institute. My career then took me to banking in the Commercial Lending Division at Fleet and Sovereign Bank, now (Santander). During this time period I decided to enter the teaching profession so that I could spend more time with my children, go on longer vacations, and have a similar schedule. I have been an educator for 18 years. I first began as a 5th Grade resource teacher and then became a kindergarten teacher / resource kindergarten teacher. I was also a Family Community Field Coordinator for Boston Public Schools. Family involvement and family engagement are important for the development of children. I also incorporate a variety of cultures by having food , cultural days, and reading various books from around the world. I encourage families to get involved through participation.

My favorite thing about caring for children is that they start to show you their little personalities. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 15 years of experience. I’m a mom and I’ve always run my own program. People have said that I create an environment that is nurturing and welcoming. I focus on academic and social readiness, and I especially love to watch them express themselves. I’m proud when I think about all the children I've helped grow and learn. That's what makes this work so special.

A home daycare is like a family, and my journey to becoming a daycare provider began with family too. While helping at my aunt’s child care center in the Dominican Republic I quickly discovered that taking care of little ones is my passion, a passion that has led me to my own home daycare program! I treat every child like my own, my daycare is very welcoming, and I try to build connections between families, starting with a celebration where they are able to meet and get to know each other. These kinds of connections are so important and what I do is so rewarding, especially when families tell me about the positive impact I have made in their lives.

A good daycare program is an important piece of the puzzle for many families, especially single parents. As a young mother, I really had to work things out on my own, and it wasn’t always easy! I want to help parents who are in that same situation and offer a support system that they can count on. I have lots of experience with kids – I’m a mother of two and worked as a monitor in the Boston Public Schools and in a personal security position at Boston Children’s Hospital. Having my own program and working with young people every day is a lifelong dream, one I am so happy to be fulfilling!

FAQs

Your family is unique to you, but some of your questions might not be. 😉 Here’s what most parents want to know when starting out.

What is NeighborSchools?

Hey there, nice to meet you 👋 We’re a new-ish startup that helps new-ish parents find daycare.

We know how hard finding good child care can be - especially for first-time parents. But really good care is what gives you the peace of mind to go back to work and feel confident that your child is getting the stimulation, socialization, and support they need to learn and grow.

So we created NeighborSchools to make this piece of parenthood a whole lot easier. We say “easier” because, let’s be honest, it’s still a big thing to figure out, but working together we can help you find some good options, understand the whole process, and choose a program you’ll feel really good about.

Most first-time parents don’t know exactly what they’re looking for, so we created a simple survey that will ask you questions about your lifestyle, your daily routines, and your preferences for child care. We’ll then share 3 personalized recommendations that we think might be a good fit. We’ll also give you a timeline that maps out when we would suggest you start touring programs, choose a daycare, and pay a deposit to secure a spot. Your timeline is based on when you want to start care - so you set the pace, and you decide when you’ve found the right match.

Nope. Our daycare recommendation service is free for parents. The other half of our business is helping these small-scale daycares with software and services that handle all their administrative tasks, like online contracting, payment processing, and licensing requirements. Before NeighborSchools, services like these were only designed for large corporate child care centers, and part of our mission is to level the playing field for small, independent child care programs. That’s why we picked the name NeighborSchools - we’re all about making child care more personal, more human, and more equitable for the incredible individuals who do this work and care for our children.

Generally, if you’re here, you’re ready. The survey lets us give you 3 recommendations to consider, but it’ll also help you better understand what factors to consider, and what questions to be asking right now. It’s simple things like where you live, your child’s date of birth, when you want to start care, and if you have any preferences around program philosophy or language of instruction. If you’re planning 6+ months ahead, it’s a great way to get started, and if you’re hoping to start daycare in the next 2-4 months, it’s definitely time to get started. Click here to start the survey.

Each program has a limited number of spots for each age range, so we need to know your schedule and child’s age before we can share availability. The survey covers these basics, as well as factors like drop-off and pick-up times to make sure that recommended programs fit your daily routine. Once we know your child’s age and schedule we can share rates and costs as well.

More questions? Text or email - we’re here to help.

We’re online Monday - Friday from 8am to 6pm Eastern.
