About Me

I have always been around kids! I was the oldest girl in a family of seven children, and so I was always taking care of my younger siblings as well as kids in the neighborhood. I also raised five children of my own, and so moving into a professional family child care program was a completely...

My program has a very home-like feeling. I value that when a child is being cared for, they are able to build a distinct bond with that one person, that the parents also trust. I feel almost like I’m a grandmother to the children in my program! In the beginning of life, it’s nice to have a...

Testimonials

Dina is like family. Both of my children started in her program as infants, and stayed until they went to school - they even continued part-time once in preschool! She is wonderful, and we still visit her! She loves getting into the holidays - dressing up and having little parties with the children...

Dina is so kind and loving. Both girls still talk about their time there, and they are now in 8th and 4th grades. Dina taught them not just to be ready for pre-school, but also about manners, sharing, and other important early childhood development milestones. Dina listened to my concerns as a new...

Environment

In my home, we have a big sunshine-filled room that is 20x25 with a wraparound deck off of it, then a fenced-in yard for outdoor play, weather-permitting. Inside we have shelves of toys, little kitchen sets, and tables and chairs for art and snacks, and couches for story time. There is also the...

NeighborSchools
The NeighborSchools Difference

Unlike Care.com, Yelp, or SitterCity, here at NeighborSchools we only partner with Licensed Home Daycare & Preschool Providers. These high-quality small-scale programs allow for better ratios, meaning more individualized attention for your little one. In Massachusetts, all Providers are licensed by the Dept. of Early Education & Care (EEC).

In order to receive and maintain a license from the EEC, Providers must:
  • Complete training in Safe Sleep, Childhood Nutrition, Medication Administration, and Transportation Safety
  • Undergo a rigorous home environment inspection & unannounced monitoring visits from EEC Licensors throughout the year
  • Maintain current Pediatric CPR & First Aid certificates
  • Complete a 3-part background record check, including fingerprints
  • Complete 10+ hours of professional development training annually

Many parents don‘t realize that Licensed Home Daycare & Preschool is regulated just like center-based child care. The biggest difference is that with Home Daycare your child is in the care of one experienced Provider who is wholly devoted to the children in their program. Children get the individualized attention and continuity of care they need to thrive; you get a more affordable child care option conveniently located right in your neighborhood.
