Ms. Caitlin

Montessori Approach

My name is Caitlin. I am a wife, and a mother of three and counting! I am currently in pursuit of an interdisciplinary Doctorate at Liberty University with cognates in Health, Religion, and Education. I have more than ten years of experience in a childcare setting and am actively home-schooling my children. One of the best parts of working with children is watching them learn and grow. The work is incredibly rewarding, especially when I think about helping so many children work through their individual challenges and achieve personal gains. It's such a gift to guide the children in my program as they grow.

Ms. Janine

Play-Based Learning

After I had my son, 1 daycare center in town closed and the only other option was a woman who was retiring! It made perfect sense for me to stay home with my little one and care for my community at the same time. I filled right up and have maintained the most beautiful relationships with the children I've cared for and their families for years and years! I have 9 years of experience taking care of young children. . For me, one of the best parts of working with children is watching them explore and discover. I feel so fortunate to experience that every day and to share my skills and experience with families through my home-based child care program, where I focus on learning through play. I aim to create an environment that is welcoming and engaging for the children I care about so much. So many parts of this job are fun, but I especially love to see them start to walk and talk. I can't imagine spending my days any other way. I’m also proud to do this important work. That’s especially true when I think about all the children I've taught.

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.
