Ms. Amy

Play-Based Learning

I have been working with children since I was in elementary school when I was a Mother’s Helper for the first time. There I learned how to properly care for a child, from diapers and play to best practices for safety. Since then I have devoted my life to working with children, specifically special needs children. I have held positions in the daycare field as well as being a nanny, a behavioral therapist, and a teacher. I hold a bachelors degree in psychology and a Masters degree in Education from Simmons college in Boston Ma. My concentration was in special education. I feel the important responsibility of helping children grow and develop while they are in my care. I also have two children myself, who are 7 months and 2.5 years old, who participate in my program.

Ms. Ashley

Play-Based Learning

My favorite thing about caring for children is watching them learn and grow. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 15 years of experience. I have worked as an early childhood educator in early childhood education programs, and most recently I have been taking care of my own children. People have said that I create an environment that is nurturing and comfortable. I focus on children's wellbeing, and I especially love to sing and dance with them. I’m proud when I think about all the children and families I've impacted over the years. That's what makes this work so special.

Ms. Heather

Infant Care

I have always loved working with children! From preschools to the medical field to my own home daycare years ago. It's no wonder I found myself back here, ready and excited to share my experience and love with the families in my neighborhood! My favorite thing about caring for children is watching them learn and grow. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 12 years of experience. I have worked as a nanny in private homes, as well as my own licensed family daycare for 12years while raising my children. After years of working as a visiting nurse, I’ve been inspired by the perfect, peaceful, farm side setting of our new home, to return to my passion, delivering quality child care at home. People have said that I create an environment that is nurturing and friendly. I focus on learning through play, and I especially love interactive story time. I’m proud when I think about all the children I've helped grow and learn over the years. That's what makes this work so special.

FAQs

Your family is unique to you, but some of your questions might not be. 😉 Here’s what most parents want to know when starting out.

What is NeighborSchools?

Hey there, nice to meet you 👋 We’re a new-ish startup that helps new-ish parents find daycare.

We know how hard finding good child care can be - especially for first-time parents. But really good care is what gives you the peace of mind to go back to work and feel confident that your child is getting the stimulation, socialization, and support they need to learn and grow.

So we created NeighborSchools to make this piece of parenthood a whole lot easier. We say “easier” because, let’s be honest, it’s still a big thing to figure out, but working together we can help you find some good options, understand the whole process, and choose a program you’ll feel really good about.

Most first-time parents don’t know exactly what they’re looking for, so we created a simple survey that will ask you questions about your lifestyle, your daily routines, and your preferences for child care. We’ll then share 3 personalized recommendations that we think might be a good fit. We’ll also give you a timeline that maps out when we would suggest you start touring programs, choose a daycare, and pay a deposit to secure a spot. Your timeline is based on when you want to start care - so you set the pace, and you decide when you’ve found the right match.

Nope. Our daycare recommendation service is free for parents. The other half of our business is helping these small-scale daycares with software and services that handle all their administrative tasks, like online contracting, payment processing, and licensing requirements. Before NeighborSchools, services like these were only designed for large corporate child care centers, and part of our mission is to level the playing field for small, independent child care programs. That’s why we picked the name NeighborSchools - we’re all about making child care more personal, more human, and more equitable for the incredible individuals who do this work and care for our children.

Generally, if you’re here, you’re ready. The survey lets us give you 3 recommendations to consider, but it’ll also help you better understand what factors to consider, and what questions to be asking right now. It’s simple things like where you live, your child’s date of birth, when you want to start care, and if you have any preferences around program philosophy or language of instruction. If you’re planning 6+ months ahead, it’s a great way to get started, and if you’re hoping to start daycare in the next 2-4 months, it’s definitely time to get started. Click here to start the survey.

Each program has a limited number of spots for each age range, so we need to know your schedule and child’s age before we can share availability. The survey covers these basics, as well as factors like drop-off and pick-up times to make sure that recommended programs fit your daily routine. Once we know your child’s age and schedule we can share rates and costs as well.

More questions? Text, email, or chat - we’re here to help.

We’re online Monday - Friday from 8am to 6pm Eastern.
