Ms. Resharia

Great Outdoor Space

Every child has a special light inside them, and a warm and happy environment can make that light shine even brighter! My home daycare is welcoming, comfortable and safe. This makes it a great place to learn! The children I care for become so precious to me, and the relationships that form with their families are just as precious. I feel that happiness is all about learning experiences and growth, and I love being a part of those things in a child’s life. Each little one that walks through my front door adds something special and important to the Lil I Am Miracles family.


Ms. Natalia

Play-Based Learning

I have 4 years of experience taking care of young children. For me, one of the best parts of working with children is that they start to show you their little personalities. 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 children's wellbeing. I aim to create an environment that is nurturing and welcoming 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. Silvia

Play-Based Learning

Kids are the future, and it’s important to guide them in a way that encourages healthy communication, self-assurance, respect, and kindness. As a mother of two, I know it can be hard to find the right environment for your child. I started teaching kindergarten when I was 19 years old in Cape Verde. When I moved to the United States, I went to school and became a certified assistant, working in hospital settings. But I had always dreamed of starting my own daycare to meet the needs of the children and families in my community. The best part about working with young children is truly just getting to know them and designing activities that will speak to them.


Ms. Vielca

Academic Prep

I have 10 years of experience taking care of young children. Previously, I worked in my home as a nanny, and most recently I have been taking care of my own children. For me, one of the best parts of working with children is that they provide so much joy. 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 friendly for the children I care about so much. So many parts of this job are fun, but I especially love to see them start to walk and talk. I can't imagine spending my days any other way. I’m also proud to do this important work.

Ms. Yirsi

Montessori Approach

Working with children means that every day is different! Kids at this age are so curious and get so excited about even the little things, and it’s so much fun to be part of that. There is always something new to discover and talk about. I realized how much I love helping children learn when I had my own children, and while working at a Montessori daycare. Having my own program has allowed me to work with so many unique and special children, and I have really enjoyed creating an environment where there are plenty of opportunities for growth for every type of child.


Ms. Maria

Play-Based Learning

Children want to learn. They are enthusiastic about their education! There’s nothing better than watching a child’s face light up when they learn a fun fact and want to know more about the subject, or when they start an art project that they’re excited to share with their families. After raising two children of my own, I realized I wanted to continue the good work of helping young kids find a love of learning. There is no limit to what a child can achieve with a little support and guidance!


Ms. Irma

Early Intervention Expertise

I love guiding children to become who they're meant to be, and their energy and curiosity are contagious! I opened my doors 14 years ago after working at a larger center, and have 3 kids of my own. It’s an honor to be a part of their early growth and learning, and to build a community among all the families who are a part of my program. I work hard to enrich the kids with skills they need for kindergarten, and to help them reach their full potential!


Ms. Tramille

Play-Based Learning

My favorite thing about caring for children is knowing that I influence their growth and development. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 9 years of experience as a Mom and caregiver. People have said that I create an environment that is happy and friendly. I focus on learning through play, and I especially love to read books to them. 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. Gemma

Great Outdoor Space

Every child is special, and their unique creativity will often blow you away! Each child I’ve cared for (starting with my own) has been a surprise and a delight. Taking care of children can be the most wonderful, unpredictable journey. You never know who is going to want to spend all day outside or who is going to love reading books together. Every time you give a child the chance to be creative, they will come back with something awesome. It’s why my walls are covered with their art!


Ms. Marie

Montessori Approach

Children are so eager to explore their expanding world. To them, every day brings something new. With good-hearted guidance, they come to every new person and experience with an open mind. At this program, we do not discriminate against anyone, no matter their race, religion, political beliefs, marital status, sexual orientation, or disability. In my experience, children at this age are really able to understand this. They have an abundance of generosity and acceptance to share that gives me hope about humanity.


Ms. Harlet

Outdoor Education

It’s so rewarding to see children come out of their shell. For example, there was this one very shy boy who came to my daycare. He would barely say a word to anyone. But through encouragement and patience (and a sprinkling of fun vocal activities like singing), over the course of a few months, he got comfortable enough to actively participate in conversations. Now he’s a confident kid, and he talks more than anyone!


Ms. Karen

Academic Prep

Every child deserves to have someone they can turn to for guidance and support. It’s awesome to see what every kid is capable of when they’re in an environment that fosters learning. After years of nannying, I realized I wanted to dedicate my life to helping children find their path, so I got a teaching degree. High-quality early childhood education is so important. Plus, there is nothing more rewarding than getting to spend quality time with young children and watching them expand their horizons every day.


Ms. Naomie

Play-Based Learning

Young children are so generous with their attention. When you’ve introduced them to something that really speaks to them, it’s incredible how much care and attention they give to it. The best part about working with kids is helping them adjust to this new routine and then finding that spark that’s hopefully going to stick with them for the rest of their lives. Opening a daycare—offering a safe space for local families—has been a dream for several years. As a natural caregiver, I was assisting my own parents for a while, but now I’m ready to make that dream of working with kids a reality. The quality time spent with young children is like nothing else. Every moment you share with them can have a major impact on their life’s journey. As a mother (of a 10-year-old and a 15-year-old), I really wanted to spend more time at home, getting even more involved in my children’s lives. Basically, I wanted to be there for my kids in the same way that I want to be there for all kids in need of a little guidance and support!


Ms. Rachelle

Montessori Approach

Kids love to learn, and teaching is such meaningful work. I have two children and lots of nieces and nephews who I’ve cared for over the years. I also have experience in a school setting, working with children with autism. I’m patient and kind and have always wanted to have my own home daycare! Being able to give guidance to families and offer my home as a wonderful place for kids to spend their days is so special.


Ms. Florence

Play-Based Learning

I started my work with children as a teacher back home in Nigeria. I also am a mother of 6 – my youngest is 14 – so I’ve seen so many children grow up from one of the littles to their own independent young adult. Watching the process of their individuality emerge is truly unique.

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 or email - we’re here to help.

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