Ms. Petrice

Play-Based Learning

I have a deep love for working with children and seek to provide the highest quality of care for them. I absolutely love watching the kiddos grow! Every single hour with them is different. Within our daily routines, they are constantly learning and developing new habits. I care for each individual child as if he or she were my own. Children have so much love within them that it’s impossible not to love them and want to give them the best education and care possible. Whatever mood I might be in, the kids immediately make everything feel full of light and joy. It is an honor to nurture the kids through the developmental stages and the rewards are endless for both the children and me. I’m also very attentive to the needs of parents and do everything I can to make their days easier. I want parents to feel relaxed and happy knowing their child is in my care. It is my duty and privilege to teach children through play and help them develop all of the emotional, cognitive, social, and physical skills they need. I not only want to prepare them for school, but also set them up for a successful night when they leave my program each day and return home.


Ms. Helen

Play-Based Learning

When I say I've been doing this for over 30 years, I mean that my own children grew up in my childcare and now I have my grand babies, too! I find so much joy in creating a safe and warm environment for little ones to grow and learn - it's my true passion! My favorite thing about caring for children is witnessing their curiosity and joy. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 35 years of experience. I have worked as a mom in my home, and most recently I have been running my own program. People have said that I create an environment that is welcoming and happy. I focus on allowing children to express themselves, and I especially love to watch them express themselves. I’m proud when I think about all the children I've helped grow and learn. That's what makes this work so special.


Ms. Janelle

Play-Based Learning

I am deeply inspired to teach by my passion for guiding children to think outside the box. I believe that encouraging creativity and independent thinking at an early age can have a profound impact on a child's development. I firmly believe in fostering a nurturing and supportive environment where children can thrive emotionally and intellectually. By cultivating a sense of respect, empathy, and understanding, I aim to empower children to resolve conflicts peacefully and develop healthy relationships. I am dedicated to providing an inclusive environment for all children. Recognizing the importance of diversity and individuality, I strive to create a space where every child feels valued and respected. By embracing differences and celebrating unique qualities, I aim to nurture a sense of belonging and foster a community that embraces kindness and acceptance. Lastly, I am passionate about laying a strong foundation for children during their preschool years. These formative years are crucial in shaping their future academic and social success. Through engaging and stimulating educational experiences, I aim to equip children with the necessary skills and knowledge, helping them build a solid groundwork for their future endeavors.


Ms. Maryjean

Play-Based Learning

A home daycare should be a positive and happy place for children to spend time in! One of the most important parts of being a home provider is teaching children to care for one another and be kind to each other. We work on kindness and cooperation every day in my program, and it’s an important part of the special community we create together! I began working with children when I was just twelve years old, as a babysitter for families in my neighborhood – and even then, I had a real passion for taking care of children. That passion has only grown stronger over the years! Being part of so many children’s lives is such a joy.

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 or email - we’re here to help.

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