Ms. Melania

Play-Based Learning

It’s so important to find a daycare provider that you trust. I began my program after searching for a daycare for my own young daughter – this turned out to be so much more difficult than I’d imagined! Nothing felt right and none of the places I visited seemed like a good fit for my precious girl. That’s when I decided to open my own home daycare, so I could create the kind of place I was searching for – where children like my daughter could learn and grow in a safe, happy environment. I had no idea then how much I would love it! There is nothing more rewarding than helping a child develop and learn, and I get to be part of that amazing process every single day!


Ms. Dottie

Play-Based Learning

I've been working with families and children for more than 15 years and have run my own program for more than a decade. I am committed to creating an enriching environment that fosters the growth of all children. Through my formal education and ongoing training, I am able to support each child's unique personality and development. I believe in providing outstanding service, and I cherish the relationships that I build with all of the children and families in our care.


Ms. Maria

Play-Based Learning

I come from a huge family and have always been surrounded by children. I love creating activities for them and watching them play outside. I've been in the field for 30 years and am still in love with it! My favorite thing about caring for children is that they start to show you their little personalities. I have worked as an early childhood educator in daycare centers, and most recently I have been running my own program. People have said that I create an environment that is comfortable and welcoming. I focus on exploration and imagination, and I especially love to take children outside to explore and play. 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. Sonia

Small Class Sizes

Coming from a big family is great preparation for having a daycare program! I always loved being around my nieces and nephews and volunteering with kids in daycare programs as I got older. Starting my own program was a great way to be home with my children when they were young, and twenty years later I still think this is the best job ever! It is so rewarding when a child begins to understand something you are teaching them - the looks of pride on their faces in those moments are truly priceless. There is nothing I’d rather do!

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.
