I was so disappointed when I had to move away and my daughter, Allison, couldn't go to Mariana's Family Child Care anymore. She's passionate about working with kids and treats all of the kids in her program like they are her own. My daughter has autism, and when I leave her with Mariana, I know...
I couldn't be happier with Mariana's program. She really teaches all of the kids and both of my sons have learned so much. Gabriel is six months and Eli is two.

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).
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.
