Ms. Saira

Small Class Sizes

Being a childcare provider means being part of a team – a team that is working toward one goal – happy kids! Parents and caregivers are such an important piece of the puzzle, and communication is key. As a mother myself with a background in ABA therapy, I have a lot of experience working with all types of children, and have learned so much from them over the years. Most importantly, I’ve learned that every child is unique and special in their own way, and that every child has the ability to learn and grow in the right environment! I am so grateful for all the precious moments I get to be a part of, and that I get to teach children about the beauty of life, and how much they can bring to the world just by being themselves.


Ms. Sadiemarie

Infant Care

Experience makes all the difference in a daycare! I have eight siblings and am the child of foster parents – so my home has always been full of kids. That’s the norm for me, and I love it! As a young person I babysat all the time and as a teen my summer job was working with special needs children. I majored in education and taught kids for many years - from preschool age to high school, and then became a department head. That’s when I realized I wanted to get back to my roots and work directly with kids again! This is really where my passion lies and having my own home program is a dream come true!


Ms. Tara

Infant Care

A small-scale daycare in Sharon, Ms. Tara provides care for just 6 children at a time.

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.
