COVID-19 Resources for Parents
We hope you and your family are safe and healthy. Here at NeighborSchools, we’re taking active measures to protect our children, Providers and community.
During this uncertain time, we’re here to serve as a resource for both parents and Providers who are navigating these significant changes to our day-to-day lives.
How is NeighborSchools responding to COVID-19?
Starting on March 23, all Family Child Care (FCC) Programs in Massachusetts, including those partnered with NeighborSchools, will be closed until June 29. During that time, exempt Emergency Child Care Programs will be the only child care programs that are allowed to operate during the COVID-19 State of Emergency.
More information for parents regarding program closures, including guidance on how to sign up for emergency care is available on the EEC website. We will update this page with more information as it becomes available.
In the meantime, we are still able to help parents secure future care later in the year and have started a waitlist of parents seeking care starting in June through September. Interested parents are encourage to complete our Match Me Survey to find the best daycare options near them.
Currently, parents will be able to tour programs and meet providers virtually via video chat in place of typical in-person tours.
