Q&A with Ms. Entela

Tell us about your experience working with young children?

I have a gift for working with children! As a mother of two precious kiddos myself, and with 10 years of working with littles under my belt, I feel so happy to be able to share my gift with the families in my neighborhood! I started working with children as a child care professional in a home-based daycare 10 years ago, and I have been caring for children ever since. Opening my own child care program in my home gave me the opportunity to create the comfortable, warm environment that I think is so important. I especially love to crawl around with them on the floor, but the truth is that so many parts of the day and the week bring me a lot of joy. Through it all, I focus on exploration and imagination. One of the best parts of working with children is witnessing their curiosity and joy. The work is incredibly rewarding, especially when I think about helping so many children work through their individual challenges and achieve personal gains. It's such a gift to guide the children in my program as they grow.

What are the key areas of focus at your daycare?

Having a small group of children in my home-based program is great because I want them all to look forward to coming here, and this setting makes that possible. I use my knowledge and prior experiences to tailor programming to individual children’s needs, and I focus on allowing children to express themselves. We follow a daily routine that can vary according to child age and interest. Beginning with welcoming children and families, most days include story time, arts and crafts, motor skills development, music and movement, and free play. My favorite time is outdoor play. I love to see their personalities and interests develop and shine through. I want parents to know that their children will receive lots of love and care while they're here. We're all one big family here, and that includes the parents of the children in my program.

Can you tell us a bit about your home environment?

My program takes place in the living room of my Holbrook home. I want the children to feel at home here, so the space is child-friendly and bright, with designated areas for independent work, stations, free play, outdoor play, and arts and crafts. The children also have access to my yard, which is completely surrounded by a fence.

It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.

Reviews & References

Here’s the inside scoop from other parents that have worked with Ms. Entela.


I absolutely love Entela. My toddler has been attending her daycare for 7 months and he absolutely loves it. She listens to all of my wants and needs. She also gradually made sure that we connected so my separation anxiety was so much easier to deal with. She treats my son like he is her own son! Entela is the most respectful, most thoughtful and considerate home day care I have ever been to or heard about. She keeps her house squeaky clean. No shoes allowed inside. She gives them nutritional food. All of her food is made from scratch and organic. Entela also has chicken pets and plants with the kids. Shows them how to care for animals. Truly the best home daycare. Entela is like family. Definitely choose her! You won’t regret it.


Ms. Entela is great with our baby. She made us feel comfortable right away. She keeps us updated throughout the day and sends pictures/videos. We love that! Our daughter is happy and enjoys going here.

Rates & Openings

Daycare rates depend on how old your child will be and what your schedule looks like. 5 days / week might get a slight discount, and infant rates are usually more than toddlers’. Finding a spot also depends on age and schedule because each daycare has a limited number of openings for each age range.

Let’s find a really good daycare for you

Get your own recommendations based on your preferences, daily routine, and what matters most to you.


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.
