September ushers in fall and the back-to-school mindset. This year, that mindset is paired with uncertainty. Maybe your child’s preschool or daycare is reopening in-person, or offering a hybrid option. On top of that, many programs may start with one way of doing business and then be forced to quickly pivot to another. The only certainty right now is that working parents are constantly worrying about how to care for and educate their young children, while balancing their careers.
This is why we’re excited to introduce our latest partner, NeighborSchools. NeighborSchools was created to help the best preschool teachers, nannies, and dedicated child care experts open and run their own licensed home daycares, increasing access to affordable, local, high-quality child care for parents everywhere. They started their business in Massachusetts and are now the largest network of home daycares in the state.
The key to their growth is a technology they created called, “MagicMatch,” that automatically shows parents the daycares that have space for them, based on their location, schedule, budget and age of child. Program age ranges vary, but there are many options for infants through age 5.
Simply visit their MagicMatch link, answer a few questions about the days and hours you need care, age of your child, zip code and budget, and you’ll be matched with an awesome home daycare on the North Shore. (You can also sort by your work zip code, if you’d rather find a location closer to your office.) Then it’s just one click to learn more about the provider and schedule a tour. Providers have had their backgrounds and references checked, are health and safety trained and their homes have been checked for safety as well.
When I needed a home daycare with flexible hours for my son, before he started preschool, I scoured our town’s Facebook group and other online mom groups. NeighborSchools has created a solution that does all the leg-work for you. I wish it was around a few years ago!
