About Me

I’ve always loved caring for children, but I really became interested in child care as a profession when I had my twin daughters. I placed them in a Family Child Care program when they were one, and I volunteered to help as much as possible. When they went to pre-K at a local child care center, I...

My main focus is to nurture the children in my program. We definitely have a schedule, and it’s very important to me that the children learn, but that isn’t possible if they don’t feel safe and secure. Sometimes the larger child care centers can be too much for kids, with lots of noise and constant...

Testimonials

I first met Esther when her twin daughters enrolled at my school. Esther was always stopping in to ask questions and we had many conversations about development and how kids learn and grow. The following year, Esther made it her mission to be with me in the classroom. She became an invaluable...

Esther and I first met as coworkers and she later provided care for my daughter. She always has so much fun with the kids! I’m incredibly grateful to Esther for teaching my daughter how to better respect and get along with others. She’s such a good person and treats each child in her care as if...

Esther’s twins were students at my mother’s family child care program. I’ve always looked up to Esther because her daughter’s are so well spoken and considerate. Esther taught me the importance of building a strong foundation for learning with my own children, as those early years are so crucial...

Esther has cared for my daughter many times. One summer I had difficulty finding a camp to send her to because she is extremely shy and has difficulty adjusting to new situations. Esther has a unique way of making children feel at ease. I not only felt comfortable leaving her with Esther but my...

Our program is set up with lots of different opportunities for kids to explore. We have our main, open area for our daily circle time, and then there’s room for learning, play, and quiet time.

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.
