Ms. Maria

Montessori Approach

Getting to know these children as they find themselves is such a rewarding experience! Every day, they’re learning new things about the world and who they want to be. This is such a special time in their lives because they’re making new friends and discovering their interests. They’re asking really exciting questions about the way things work. It’s incredible to be even a small part of this stage in their life. I have four grown kids of my own—and one grandchild. In addition to being a mother, I’ve also been running my daycare for ten years. All of this experience has given me a great deal of patience, and as the years go by, I see again and again how much I genuinely love spending time with kids and creating an environment for them to grow in.

Ms. Ysabel

Healthy Meals & Snacks

It’s so motivating when the children come to the program, energized and eager to take on the day. Their natural penchant for learning encourages everyone around them to look at the world with a similar openness and excitement. After raising two children (who are now adults), I’ve realized my calling is to continue to offer care and support for the kids in my area. Six years ago, I opened my doors to the families in my community, and it’s been the most rewarding experience.

Ms. Yanel

Bilingual Daycare

I love being able to offer a home daycare program that gives parents peace of mind! I have a very high standard for care and that shows in my program. Working with special needs kids and in an adult daycare taught me a lot about how to create a nurturing and supportive environment, and I use what I learned all the time in my daycare program! My own children are grown now, and I have two grandchildren, and I really enjoy being around kids of all ages and taking care of them!

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 - we’re here to help.

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