Ms. Ramonita

Play-Based Learning

My daughter Adela and I have always dreamed of having our own family child care program. Opening my own child care program in my home gave me the opportunity to create the happy, welcoming environment that I think is so important. I especially love to see them start to walk and talk, but the truth is that so many parts of the day and the week bring me a lot of joy. Through it all, I focus on learning through play. One of the best parts of working with children is watching them explore and discover. The work is incredibly rewarding, especially when I think about how I've prepared children for pre-K. It's such a gift to guide the children in my program as they grow.


Ms. Christvie

Infant Care

Young children are so full of potential. They can do anything they set their minds to, and that journey starts with daycare. Every kid deserves a safe space, somewhere they feel comfortable being themselves and asking questions. They also deserve a mentor or guardian who is going to have their best interests at heart. I’ve always had a knack for looking after kids. I was always the go-to person in the family to babysit. When my niece (age 12) needed a place to live, I was happy to open my home to her. Starting a daycare is my way of offering the children in my community this quality care and helping them with these important first steps.


Ms. Khadija

Sleep Training Specialist

Although every child’s development is different, they all have one thing in common: they never ceased to amaze us with their excitement and their passion. They have a natural inclination towards discovery that makes learning such a joy. It’s incredibly rewarding knowing that you’ve helped a child find a book they love, or introduced them to a kind of art that speaks to them, or taught them a skill that’s going to help them down the line. Together, we’re building towards their future success.


Ms. Vanessa

Bilingual Daycare

Every child is unique and needs a different type of care. I know this from personal and professional experience - I have four kids, each with their own personality, interests, and needs – and I’ve worked in childcare for the past fifteen years! I also have a degree in elementary education and a preschool certification. Between my education and my life experiences as a caretaker and mom, I really know how to interact with kids, bring out the best in them, and give them patience and care on days when they need it. Having my own home daycare is the perfect way for me to use all my skills and knowledge so that children can learn and grow!

Let’s find a really good daycare for you

Get your own recommendations based on your preferences, daily routine, and what matters most to you.


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.
