The NeighborSchools Difference

Experienced Educators, Exceptional Programs
Unique Programming

The only cookie-cutters you’ll find are in the kitchen. Our Educators come with years of experience, diverse backgrounds and creative curriculums.

Individualized Care

Better ratios, flexible programming. Our days are based on what’s best for the kids, not what the corporate policy dictates.

Stronger Bonds

No more bouncing between assistants every six months. Your child forms a deep and special bond with their Educator. And so will you.

Hidden Gems

Go with the best program, not the biggest. Our Educators have left behind the for-profit centers, and you can too.

All of our programs are fully licensed and insured.

Background Checked
Reference Checked
Home Safety Inspection
Health & Safety Trained

We believe that child care should...

Emphasize People & Relationships

Parents connect with Educators. Educators connect with children. Children connect with each other. We’re all better when we trust and rely on our neighbors to help raise our children.

Empower Educators

Educators are crucial to our society. We need experienced educators to stay in child care, and experienced educators need to earn a livable wage.

Embrace Diverse Philosophies

There’s no one right way to educate a child. Each educator can shape their program around their preferred educational philosophy, and every parent can find a program that works for them.

Just Feel Right

You know that feeling when you really trust and connect with someone? When you know they really care? That’s what you’ll feel when you find the right child care program.

What is Licensed Family Child Care?

Licensed Family Child Care is when one experienced educator operates out of her or his home with a maximum program size of six to ten students.

To become licensed, a provider must go through:
  • A 3-part background check for every person in the household
  • Rigorous home inspection & unannounced visits from EEC Licensors at least once per year to ensure a healthy & safe environment
  • 10+ hours of continuing education per year
  • Pediatric CPR & First Aid certification
  • Medication Administration training
  • Training in Safe Sleep, Childhood Health & Nutrition

NeighborSchools partners meet or exceed all EEC licensing requirements, and many have 10+ years of professional experience prior to opening their own program.
