Ms. Ilham

Play-Based Learning

I have 20 + 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 nurturing and happy for the children I care about so much. So many parts of this job are fun, but I especially love to watch them express themselves. 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 and watched grow.

Ms. Malika

Play-Based Learning

My favorite thing about caring for children is witnessing their curiosity and joy. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 20 years of experience. Working with children is my absolute passion! I raised all my siblings and three of my own children. Nothing brings me more joy than opening my home to the families in my community.mom in my home, and most recently I have been running my own program. People have said that I create an environment that is comfortable and friendly. I focus on academic and social readiness, and I especially love to watch them express themselves. I’m proud when I think about helping so many children work through their individual challenges and achieve personal gains. That's what makes this work so special.

Ms. Gail

Play-Based Learning

I have always been passionate about working with children. When I had my own children, I looked for child care in my area and didn’t find a program that I felt comfortable with, so in 1984 I opened my own family child care program, which I had for 15 years. I then worked at the YMCA first as a toddler teacher, through various roles, all the way to the Center Director of child care in East Boston and eventually running the child feeding program. I started the YMCA food programs for after school and summer and took it from six sites to sixty-one. I have a bachelor’s in Human Services, have worked with children for many years, and am licensed and certified for family child care. After years working for YMCA, my first grandchild was born and I decided to start a new program for parents in the community looking for high quality care for their children.

Ms. Lilian

Play-Based Learning

When I received the opportunity to study Early Childhood Education in Boston I was so excited because I just love children so much! I incorporate so many wonderful parts of my Spanish culture, including my language and delicious home made meals, that the children I care for have a joyous and enriching experience! I have 13 years of experience taking care of young children. For me, one of the best parts of working with children is that they provide so much joy. 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 helping children work through challenges. I aim to create an environment that is welcoming and friendly for the children I care about so much. So many parts of this job are fun, but I especially love to take children outside to explore and play. 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 helping so many children work through their individual challenges and achieve personal gains.

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 chat - we’re here to help.

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