Children learn best from each other, even just when they are playing! I work hard to create a good balance of social time, play, and learning. Having my own home daycare means spending time with all types of children with different personalities and ways of learning. It is a challenge for me to get to know what makes each unique child tick and to figure out the best way to teach them, and this challenge is really what makes me excited for each day. As a mother myself, I know what it is like to be a caregiver at home, and that helps me be even better at what I do.

Every child is different, and it’s always such a joy to get to know them on an individual basis. Even at this young age, their personalities really start to shine through. It’s my job to help facilitate their growth and guide them. I’ve worked at daycares and as an educator, and it’s a responsibility I take very seriously. Of course, every child has their own needs and brings something unique to the table, and that’s what keeps this work so interesting. The connections I form with the kids (and that they form with each other!) are so special.

Ms. Martha

Play-Based Learning

I’m originally from Bogota, Colombia, where I earned my degree and started my career in the business world, visiting customers and helping them adopt new products and services - I’ve been helping others ever since. In 2007, I decided to devote myself to working full-time with young children. I started as a nanny and tried hard to bring love, joy and energy into all of the homes where I worked. Over the years, I've worked with families across Needham, Newton & Dedham. Because I’m fully bilingual, I’ve led programming in both English and Spanish, including full immersion at the request of multiple families. At one point, while coordinating playdates with 3 children in one household, and 2 in another, I discovered that children could learn so much more from socializing with a mix of ages, and that's when the idea for Patico's Home Daycare was born. As a mother, and now a grandmother, I cherish every child’s uniqueness, and I treat each child as if they were my own because I know how precious they are. I’m thrilled to welcome families in Dedham to Patico’s Home Daycare, and I look forward to meeting you and your little one.

Giving back to my community is a great feeling, especially supporting working families and their children. I love what I do – it’s always been my passion - I just love the energy I get from being around kids! I started my program over twenty years ago, after working as a nanny in my home country – and now I have a masters’ degree in education and three grown children – one of whom is my assistant, Erika. My daughter has worked with at-risk youth and brings many amazing skills and a love of children to the program. We love working together and supporting families!

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.
