Krystina is currently working hard to get her Family Child Care license with the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) in Massachusetts.

What is a Family Child Care License?

A Family Child Care license will allow Krystina to legally operate a program out of her home. She must undergo a rigorous, state-mandated process, including:

  • A 3-part background check for every person in the household
  • Home inspection and unannounced visits from EEC Licensors at least once per year
  • 10+ hours of continuing education per year
  • Pediatric CPR & First Aid certification
  • Medication Administration training
  • Training in Safe Sleep, Childhood Health & Nutrition
When will Ms. Krystina’s NeighborSchool open?

Krystina should have her program up and running within a few months, but she is pre-booking enrollment now. to save your spot!

I taught along side Krystina at the Melrose Early Childhood Center. She was one of the most caring, informative and thoughtful teachers I have ever met. She was very dedicated to her students and had a great rapport with parents. She is a wonderful person.

She has a great sense of humor, and and she is very creative in finding out what each child needs. When I heard she was opening her own program, I thought it was perfect. This allows her to...

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.
