About Me

I have always been passionate about working with children. When I had my own children, I looked for child care in my area and didn’t find a program that I felt comfortable with, so in 1984 I opened my own family child care program, which I had for 15 years. I then worked at the YMCA first as a...

My program is one where the social, emotional, physical, and cognitive skills of the child are developed through play. It’s important to me that the children are ready to enter school, and that parents aren’t worried about the level of care that their child is receiving in my home. I help the...

Environment

At my program, we utilize the entirety of my home. It depends on the activity, but sometimes we will be in the kitchen, family room, or a spare room. I also have a big fenced-in yard where we can enjoy the outdoors. In Winthrop, there are many local resources for the kids to enjoy too. We go to the...

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.
