About Me

I’m a mom of two, who used to work full-time in the healthcare industry and in public health, so I have first-hand experience of what it’s like to find child care. I know how frustrating the process can be! So when I opened Day Street Discovery School, I wanted to create the child care program that...

Lauren's passion to see children learn, grow and develop into who they were made to be through play and creative activities is inspirational! Her patience and maternal nature really comfort the children she cares for.

Lauren is forward thinking and plan-oriented. She is super engaged and involved - she's glowing when she's around children! In addition to how good and caring she is with kids, it's important to know that she just knows the right thing to do in different conditions.

Environment

The main program area is on the ground floor of my spacious home. We have a large, central space for circle time and imaginative play. Then, depending on the children’s interests, we have different activity “nooks.” There’s a reading corner, an arts and crafts table, a snack area, and space for...

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.
