About Me

As a mom of three, life can be busy, but I am at my happiest when I’m around kids. The more you work with kids and help them learn, the more you learn yourself. I started my program because I wanted to create a career around my passion for child care. Plus, I love supporting other parents and...

At Miles of Smiles Childcare, we are always focused on learning, but in ways that are fun and engaging. I think everyone—children and adults—learns best when they’re having fun. Even when we are doing something ordinary, I’ll sing a song about it; the kids think it’s so funny, and it really keeps...

Being the parent of a child with disabilities, I could use help in finding new ways to build his daily learnings. Her level of patience is amazing. She can explain things in a...

We absolutely LOVE Amanda!! Amanda is so kind, and playful with my son! Within such a short amount of time my son was running in to hug her in the morning, and very excited to play with his friends. I feel confident my son is well taken care of while I can't be there which gives me peace of mind!...

Ms. Amanda was receptive of my concerns and respectful of my time when responding to my questions. She truly made me feel at ease and made...

Environment

Miles of Smiles Childcare is so brightly lit and cheery! In our main area, we have lots of space to play, with designated room for “things that move” (like toy cars and trucks), quiet reading, and arts and crafts. Breakfast, lunch, and snack time are in the kitchen, and out back we have tons of fun...

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.
