Q&A with Ms. Nadine

Tell us about your experience working with young children?

Being a nanny years ago really planted the seed in my head that I love working with children. Now with two littles of my own, I know I'm meant to be here for the families that are seeking care. Seeing the progression in children, witnessing and encouraging them to reach milestones is such a gift! My favorite thing about caring for children is that they provide so much joy. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 10 years of experience. I have worked as a nanny in private homes and I'm a mom. People have said that I create an environment that is warm and nurturing. I focus on learning through play, and I especially love to sing and dance with them. I’m proud when I think about all the children I've helped grow and learn. That's what makes this work so special.

What are the key areas of focus at your daycare?

I want the children in my program to look forward to coming here, and having a small group of children allows me to make that happen. I focus on building independence, and I use my knowledge and prior experiences to tailor programming to individual children’s needs. We follow a daily routine that can vary according to child age and interest. Usually, days begin with drop-off and breakfast and include nap time, story time, circle time, music and movement, and curriculum-based lessons and activities. One of my favorite times of day is circle time. It's so much fun to watch them learn and grow. I'm so grateful to parents for trusting me with their children. I want all families to know that I treat all the children as if they were my own.

Can you tell us a bit about your home environment?

My program takes place on the first floor of my Holbrook home. I want the children to feel at home here, so the space is child-friendly and inviting, with designated areas for stations, circle time, free play, reading, and napping. When the weather cooperates, I also take them outside to get fresh air.

Reviews & References

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


I’m a stay at home mom and I have used Nadine as a sitter to watch my 2 daughters (6 yr old and 1 yr old) over the past several years while I went out and did errands/projects. Nadine has a warm and inviting presence about her that made my girls always feel like she was part of the family. Not only do I think she’s responsible, on time(many times came early) but willing to go the extra mile to make sure the girls were having fun. Her daughter and my oldest daughter were like to ‘peas in a pod’ and each other’s shadow. Nadine made sure the girls were read to, enjoyed arts and crafts or endless ‘pushes’ on the swing. She is kind, trustworthy and would take the time to communicate with me about how their day went and any new accomplishments they made. I really appreciated how she kept a routine with the girls which was great for me because we were all on the same page when it came to the expectations and needs of the girls. It made me feel so at ease...especially with an infant! It is so hard to find a dependable and honest sitter, so my husband and I were so lucky to find such an amazing and loving person who cared for my girls like they were her own. She’s definitely someone that I can trust and would call if I ever needed her babysitting services again. The girls miss her but we wish her the very best on her new and exciting journey!


I can not say enough about Ms. Nadine. She is not only an amazing educator but a mom as well. Her ability to show each child the same time and intention is uncanny. She is always researching new and creative ways to advance her curriculum and overall impact she has on each of her students. She leads with love and ensures her students receive well-balanced and nutritious meals and snacks. I truly appreciate her ability to communicate with families to ensure all of her students needs are met. A few words to sum up Ms. Nadine: Amazing! Reliable! Trustworthy! The best foundation for any educator.


Nadine has cared for my children on an as needed basis for the past 10 years. I have three children, and watching her juggle my three in addition to her own two children is pretty impressive. She is everything I was looking for in a caregiver. Warm, nurturing, caring, loving and extremely friendly. Seeing the comfort my children feel and hearing the way they talk about their day with Nadine puts my mind at ease. I couldn’t feel more comfortable leaving my children in her care. Highly recommended!!!


Ms. Nadine’s NeighborSchool is the best! Not only is she phenomenal, friendly and professional she loves the kids! She provides an atmosphere filled with fun and a joy for learning and exploring! My daughter loves it there and often asks when is she going to see Ms. Nadine- that speaks for itself!!! The environment is clean and safe and I always trust that my precious little one is in good hands and in a safe learning environment! I will definitely recommend anyone in need of her service!


Ms. Nadine is hands down my go to for any daycare needs. She is not only an educator but a mother herself which is always a plus when trusting a new person. She is compassionate and understanding of each child’s needs without making anyone feel left out. I love knowing she can handle any child with great discipline & respect knowing no two kids are alike. Give her a try because I did & it was a great decision!


Ms. Nadine’s Neighborhood daycare is top of the line because she is very clean, extremely careful with the kids, she treats each child as if they’re her own and she makes sure the have fun while keeping them safe at all times! I totally trust her daycare for my grandchildren!!!


Ms. Nadine is great with the children in her daycare. She provides a nurturing environment that allow the children to learn, explore, and gain independence.

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, email, or - we’re here to help.

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