Ms. Meredith

Academic Prep

I have been working with young children since my teen years. I have taught and coached swimming and other sports as well as been a day camp counselor and classroom assistant. Upon completing my undergrad I started my teaching career in the Boston Public Schools as a teacher of young children with autism in 2002. After teaching that class for four years I moved on to teaching K1 for four years. At the conclusion of those four years, our school model was shifting to the inclusion model and I began teaching a K0/K1 full-day inclusion program. This is the class I taught until the end of the 2018/2019 school year. Something I loved about my job was watching kids grow over not only our time together but watching them through their elementary school career. Getting to know the kids and families in our school community was something I looked forward to every year! I'm thrilled that this is something I can look forward to as children age in and out of my daycare program. I love having a small group in my home where there is more time for free play, art, exploration, sensory activities as well as social and emotional learning.

Mr. BeiBei

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!

Ms. Yohanny

Play-Based Learning

Children learn and grow so much in a positive, loving environment. Offering my home as a happy, nurturing space in my community – a place where children look forward to spending time - brings me a lot of joy. I believe personal attention and loving care result in happy children who are ready to learn! I have seen this firsthand with my own children and with the many little ones I have taught over the last decade. The smiles of pride as they learn something new, the laughter when we sing a funny song, the creativity that blooms when we do art – these are all moments I feel lucky to be part of. The families in my program know I consider caring for their children to be a privilege!

Ms. Marina

Play-Based Learning

I’ve always wanted to work with children. I began my journey with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I then worked in schools, preschools, and daycare centers before deciding to open a smaller daycare of my own. I’ve never wanted to do anything else and now have been working with children for more than 25 years! I love all of the hugging and smiling! But especially, I love that when working with children, I can see them beginning to understand, grow, and learn. It’s the most exciting part of my job!

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 - we’re here to help.

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