Ms. Lynnelle

Montessori Approach

Earlier in my life, I was a math person. I majored in math and earned a degree in computer networks. I was a daytime analyst until my daughter was born. Ever since becoming pregnant with her, I wanted to learn all I could about childhood education theories, from all the way back to the 18th century. I found it all incredibly fascinating, and I was especially captivated by the Montessori philosophy. I enrolled myself into a course to earn a certificate in Montessori teaching so I could teach my daughter the Montessori way. My daughter was born in 2007 and by 2009 I had my certificate and thought, why not teach not only my daughter but other children as well using this method? So, I had my first EEC license in 2009. I feel so privileged to be able to play such an important role in young children’s lives, especially before the age of 6. It is a critical time and throughout my time working in the field, I’ve realized what a knack I have for teaching young kids. I love observing them and getting to know what they are thinking and what they want. I feel like a child whisperer! I feel my ability to understand them is a huge advantage. I do my absolute best every day to provide an environment for the children that they can develop in every aspect from physical, emotional, social, and cognitive. I am so ambitious for their little hearts, and I look at each child for the whole of them. I want to help parents raise their children, looking at every part of them, including life skills.

Ms. Maria

Play-Based Learning

My favorite thing about caring for children is knowing that I influence their growth and development. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 10 years of experience. I have worked as a teacher in early childhood education programs, and most recently I have been running my own program. People have said that I create an environment that is happy and encouraging. I focus on exploration and imagination, and I especially love to watch them express themselves. 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. Esmirna

Play-Based Learning

I started working with children when I was 17 years old and worked for catholic charities for 6 years. I’ve been licensed through the EEC for a decade and have been able to give a lot of time to improving my teaching methods over time. I embrace teaching as an opportunity to inspire and empower. As a teacher, it is my goal to enhance student learning as a transformative experience. I want the kids to feel personally changed and empowered by their time in my program. I like the kids to engage with the things they’re learning, and directly relating stories and activities to their lives is a great way to do that. I also strive to understand each child’s unique learning style and teach them as individuals. While the children might sometimes dictate what they want to learn that day, I have a responsibility to inspire them too. I tailor my activities to what the kids have taught me about who they are, how they learn, and what their interests are. I am passionate about finding the most effective ways to stimulate and sustain growth for the kiddos while they’re in my care. Throughout our time together, I am inspiring them to grow intellectually, cultivating curiosity, providing opportunities for developing relationships, clarifying values, and uplifting their spirits.

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.
