As new parents it was hard to not be with our little boy, but finding Ms. Jennifer was a blessing! She is so sweet with the kids and is so caring! She sends pictures and updates throughout the day which is so awesome. She's great with the kids and we can’t imagine our son anywhere else!!

Child Care during Covid-19

The health & safety of children & Providers is our top priority. In addition to regular check-ins, here’s what we’re doing to keep everyone safe during Covid-19.

WB Mason + NeighborSchools - Child Care Covid-19

Teamed up with WB Mason to make sure that Providers have on-demand access to PPE & cleaning supplies at discounted rates.

New health & safety protocols including strict cleaning schedules, touchless drop-offs & pick-ups, and social distanced activities, meal-times, and napping protocols.

NeighborSchools - Provider with Children

Keeping it small. Many states have required corporate child care centers to reduce their numbers. We didn’t have that problem because most of our daycares are just six children to begin with.

About Us

We set out to create the type of child care we all want for our own families.

Child care in our country is really broken. For starters, there aren’t nearly enough good options but families. And, despite how much parents pay corporate centers, preschool teachers are paid next to nothing.

We created NeighborSchools to help the best preschool teachers, nannies, and early-childhood educators do exactly that, and let them focus on what matters most: your children.

Our goal is to create thousands of small-scale daycares across the country and bring affordable, quality child care to every neighborhood over the next few years.

Q. How much does home daycare cost?

A. Home daycares are usually 30-40% less expensive than nannies or corporate centers. Exact rates depend on several factors, including whether you need full-time or part-time, the exact schedule, and the age of your child. That’s why we recommend MagicMatch for new parents, so you can see what openings work for you and your budget.
