North Shore Family Daycare is a system of educators who offer childcare services in their homes. Every NSFD educator is licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care and is a participant in the Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS). A key standard in the QRIS system is performing regular standardized assessments of children to monitor their growth in the areas of language development, fine and gross motor, cognitive and social-emotional skills.
NSFD educators are trained to use Teaching Strategies GOLD Online to observe, record, and nurture the abilities and knowledge they want each child to obtain. These assessments are then used to design curriculum to meet each child’s needs.
North Shore Family Daycare educators offer high quality care and demonstrate an ongoing commitment to professional development. We offer childcare for children from 2 months to 12 years and accept voucher, state contract, and private paying clients in the Greater Lynn area.
