A good home daycare program can make the whole experience a lot better for kids and parents. Working as a lead teacher in a larger daycare center for infants and preschoolers made me realize how much I love being around little ones - and made me think a lot about how I would run a daycare of my own. This became my dream, and making it happen has been amazing! My program is small and welcoming – just like I imagined it - and I love teaching the kids new things every day.

Giving back to my community is a great feeling, especially supporting working families and their children. I love what I do – it’s always been my passion - I just love the energy I get from being around kids! I started my program over twenty years ago, after working as a nanny in my home country – and now I have a masters’ degree in education and three grown children – one of whom is my assistant, Erika. My daughter has worked with at-risk youth and brings many amazing skills and a love of children to the program. We love working together and supporting families!

Play-Based Learning

I just cannot live without working with children! I have a huge family with 7 grandchildren of my own and have been doing this incredible work for nearly 2 decades. I'm never happier than when I'm playing with little ones. I became a Mom over 18 years ago, and I have been caring for children ever since. Opening my own child care program in my home gave me the opportunity to create the nurturing, welcoming environment that I think is so important. I especially love to watch them express themselves, but the truth is that so many parts of the day and the week bring me a lot of joy. Through it all, I focus on learning through play. One of the best parts of working with children is watching them learn and grow. The work is incredibly rewarding, especially when I think about all the children I've watched learn and grow. It's such a gift to guide the children in my program as they develop.

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.

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.
