Ms. Kettly

Play-Based Learning

I have always loved children, and prior to working as a branch manager in a bank for many years, I worked as an elementary school teacher for four years. I left my position at the bank in 2003 to start my own family child care program because I wanted to return to doing what that I loved and create something that was my own. I love working with children because they are so genuine and show me how easy life can be. Plus, they make friends in about five minutes! I watch them in action and it’s so inspiring, I wonder why can’t everyone be like that. Truly, I draw insight from their playfulness, curiosity, and kindness and it inspires me to be as happy as a child is!


Ms. Angie

Play-Based Learning

I have 11 years of experience taking care of young children. Previously, I worked as a nurse at a children's hospital , and most recently I have been running my own program. For me, one of the best parts of working with children is watching them learn and grow. 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 building independence. I aim to create an environment that is welcoming and comfortable 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 helped grow and learn.


Ms. Yissel

Montessori Approach

A small-scale daycare in Randolph, Ms. Yissel provides care for just 8 children at a time. As with all home daycares, her program is licensed by the state and she’s completed training in childhood ages & stages, medication administration, and food safety. In this mixed-age group program, children get the socialization, stimulation and support they need to learn and grow.

Ms. Nonaliza

Play-Based Learning

My mother was a teacher in DR for her whole life and now owns her own school. I grew up just loving working with little children - teaching them and guiding them. It's no wonder I had to open my own home daycare, it's in my genes! My favorite thing about caring for children is watching them learn and grow. That has been a highlight for me throughout my experience. I have worked as a nanny in private homes, and most recently I have been taking care of my own children. People have said that I create an environment that is welcoming and comfortable. I focus on helping children work through challenges, and I especially love to take children outside to explore and play. I’m proud when I think about all the children I've taught. That's what makes this work so special.

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.
