Ms. Lakeisha

Play-Based Learning

Children learn best when they are having fun. Planning exciting activities that I know kids will love and learn from is a real passion for me. Every child is so unique, and I offer many different types of activities that vary from week to week. There is always something to get excited about and dive into in my program! Arts & crafts, reading, and singing and dancing all bring joy to the children’s hearts and to mine. I’ve wanted to be a teacher from a young age - my first ‘students’ were my sisters, in a classroom I would set up for them in our home after school. Little did I know how much practice I was getting for my future career!


Ms. Erika

Arts & Music

Children are at the heart of every community. They are so caring and open to new friends, and that warmth and generosity is so nice to be around. Every child also comes with their own community. They have a family and friends and other mentors who really care about them. If we all work together, we are capable of creating a safe and happy environment for our kids. I was inspired to start my own daycare after watching my mother run hers for 25 years. A love of caring for others runs in the family, and it’s a passion I look forward to passing on to future generations.

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.

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.
