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.

Ms. Marina

Play-Based Learning

I’ve always wanted to work with children. I began my journey with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I then worked in schools, preschools, and daycare centers before deciding to open a smaller daycare of my own. I’ve never wanted to do anything else and now have been working with children for more than 25 years! I love all of the hugging and smiling! But especially, I love that when working with children, I can see them beginning to understand, grow, and learn. It’s the most exciting part of my job!

Ms. Yohanny

Play-Based Learning

Children learn and grow so much in a positive, loving environment. Offering my home as a happy, nurturing space in my community – a place where children look forward to spending time - brings me a lot of joy. I believe personal attention and loving care result in happy children who are ready to learn! I have seen this firsthand with my own children and with the many little ones I have taught over the last decade. The smiles of pride as they learn something new, the laughter when we sing a funny song, the creativity that blooms when we do art – these are all moments I feel lucky to be part of. The families in my program know I consider caring for their children to be a privilege!

Ms. Elba

Play-Based Learning

For more than 20 years, I have worked with children in some capacity or another, including as a preschool teacher and a Spanish teacher at a private school. Some of the young people I once taught are now in college, and nothing makes me happier than hearing from them and seeing how the skills I taught them and qualities I helped instill in them have taken them into adulthood. As a mother and a grandmother, I am very family-oriented. The families who join the program become part of my own. The children I care for call me “Titi” (“Auntie” in Spanish)—and even once they have moved on from my care, their families know they are always welcome to come and visit Titi’s house. I want all children to feel completely comfortable in my home—I love to see them be happy and feel like themselves. If all of “my babies” are good, I’m better.

Let’s find a really good daycare for you

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, email, or - we’re here to help.

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