Play-Based Learning

All children are special and deserve to have a safe and happy place to spend their days. In my home, children are loved and cared for, and I am here to help and support families. When my daughter was very young, we began looking for a daycare for her and became so discouraged - there weren’t any that met our expectations! This is when I decided to start my own program – a home daycare that parents could feel good about and where children would get lots of love and attention. And that’s exactly what I am still doing every day. I love being able to offer this kind of care to the families in my community.

Play-Based Learning

We are Wei and JianJun. My wife, JianJun, and I began our Family Child Care program in August of 2019 and have loved it more and more every day. My wife previously worked at a large child care center for a year and a half with more than 100 children enrolled. While there, she found it difficult to provide as high quality of care as she’d like with such high enrollment. We decided to bring her high level of care to children in a smaller setting, thus starting our own family child care program. We have both worked in the academic world for most of our lives and raised a daughter who is now in her early 20’s. JianJun has the Child Development Associate Credential and we are licensed through the EEC. We’ve taken courses in Child Development and continue to study different theories of how best to educate the children. We feel that we are learning just as much as the children are!

Early Intervention Expertise

Some people are just called to work with children! I have wanted to be an educator since I was very young, and having my own program is a dream come true. My daycare is unique because of all the energy, time, and care that is put into it. Even after the kids have gone home in the evening, I spend time preparing and planning for the next day so that we can make the most of our time together. I love being able to show kids how many opportunities and possibilities there are in each and every day!

Ms. Maggie

Bilingual Daycare

Watching them learn and grow. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 13 years of experience. I have worked as an early childhood educator in daycare centers, and most recently I have been working in a daycare program. People have said that I create an environment that is nurturing and welcoming. I focus on learning through play, and I especially love to sing and dance with them. I’m proud when I think about all the children I've helped grow and learn. That's what makes this work so special.

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 or email - we’re here to help.

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