About Me

My favorite thing about caring for children is watching them explore and discover. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 11 years of experience. I have worked as a child care professional in early childhood education programs, and most recently I have been running my own program....

I want the children in my program to develop independence, and having a small group of children allows me to make that happen. I focus on exploration and imagination, and I use my knowledge and prior experiences to adjust my program and meet individual children’s needs. We follow a daily routine...

Environment

My program takes place in the living room and dining room of my Roxbury home. I want the children to feel at home here, so the space is open and child-friendly, with designated areas for outdoor play, circle time, dramatic play, reading, and arts and crafts. We also spend lots of time outside...

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.
