Ms. Dina

Play-Based Learning

I have always been around kids! I was the oldest girl in a family of seven children, and so I was always taking care of my younger siblings as well as kids in the neighborhood. I also raised five children of my own, and so moving into a professional family child care program was a completely natural progression. Over the years, as more and more families have dual income homes, childcare has become a greater necessity. When I opened my program in 1992, there was a huge need and I knew I could fill it. I love working with children because of the discoveries they make every day. It makes everything new for me too, and I enjoy participating in their development. I believe that my over twenty years of experience working with young children enables me to bring the highest level of care to them every day. I can see how everything the kids do, from singing and dancing to playing with water in the sunshine is bringing them new skills. My comfort with kids allows them to have an easy day of play and learning, and eases the parents minds that their children are safe, happy, and receiving an education that will set them up for success for years to come.


Ms. Jussara

Montessori Approach

I started working with children as a child care professional in an elementary school 11 years ago, and I have been caring for children ever since. Opening my own child care program in my home gave me the opportunity to create the calm, comfortable environment that I think is so important. I especially love to see them start to walk and talk, but the truth is that so many parts of the day and the week bring me a lot of joy. Through it all, I focus on helping children work through challenges. One of the best parts of working with children is that they all need love and care. The work is incredibly rewarding, especially when I think about all the children I've helped grow and learn. It's such a gift to guide the children in my program as they grow.


Ms. Dayse

Play-Based Learning

Every child blossoms in their own way. Getting to know the children as individuals is the most rewarding part of caregiving. After having my own son, I discovered how wonderful it is to watch a child grow. It’s an honor to be a small part of their journey. Each child in my program is treated as though they are my own, and the families of those children are also welcome!


Ms. Qinyi(Isabelle)

Play-Based Learning

I started working with children as a nanny in private homes 10 years ago, and I have been caring for children ever since. Opening my own child care program in my home gave me the opportunity to create the happy, engaging environment that I think is so important. I love to sing and dance with the children, but the truth is that so many parts of the day and the week bring me a lot of joy. Through it all, I focus on children's wellbeing. One of the best parts of working with children is watching them learn and grow. The work is incredibly rewarding, especially when I think about all the children I've taught. It's such a gift to guide the children in my program as they grow.

Ms. Marcia

Great Outdoor Space

My daycare is very family oriented! My two sisters are my assistants – we all worked as nannies in Brazil and have lots of experience with young kids. I also worked in a daycare center, and that job really helped me figure out how to run my own program in the best possible way. My sisters and I all love kids and work great together as a team. We do a lot of play-based activities and teach kids the skills they need for kindergarten – and for life! We want our daycare to be fun and full of learning, and those are the two goals we have when we open the door to the kids every morning.


Ms. Jasmine

Play-Based Learning

I have been in the Childcare field for over 10 years . I have worked as a Nanny, As a Teaching Assistant/ ABA Therapist in a private school in Long Island New York for children diagnosed with autism, as a Teaching Assistant/ABA Therapist in the Waltham public schools And at Loker elementary school in Wayland. I love teaching children, There is no other job more rewarding.


Ms. Wilma

Arts & Music

Every child deserves to be loved, cared for, and guided. This is a strong belief that I bring into my daycare program every single day. The way a child is treated and educated plays such an important part in their life and in their behavioral, emotional, and intellectual development. I witnessed this firsthand while volunteering with children living in depressed areas and orphanages. These experiences inspired me as I worked with children in my own community and eventually, in my own home daycare. I love being able to provide an environment where kids have lots of fun every day, learn and grow, and are nurtured with love.


Ms. Susana

Potty Training Support

It’s so important to help guide the next generation. Caring for young children is, in a way, investing in our collective future. Within my family, I’m the go-to caregiver for all the children. Starting a daycare felt like a great opportunity to help the families in my neighborhood provide their kids with quality care. As a community, we need to instill good values in our children. We need to show them what respect, love, and caring for other people looks like. By working with young kids, I’m able to create an environment in which they can become the best possible versions of themselves. They deserve a learning atmosphere that’s going to aid their growth.


Ms. Gabriella

Montessori Approach

Young children approach the world with an open heart. Their excitement about even the littlest things is so wonderful to see. Working with children really encourages you to see things from a whole other perspective. Both my 12-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son have taught me a lot about life. Even when they’re little, kids have so much to teach one another, and so much to teach us as well! In creating this program, I hoped to offer the children in my neighborhood a place where they would be heard and understood, a place where they would be able to make new friends. My children don’t have a lot of family living nearby who are their own age. It’s a beautiful thing, to be able to create an environment where children can meet, connect, and have fun playing together. The kids in this program will know what it’s like to be part of a loving family.


Ms. Amaziles

Play-Based Learning

Young children are at an exciting and crucial stage of their development: they’re finding some independence from home while needing some educational guidance. After raising my 16-year-old and working with pre-schoolers for four years now, I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with a new class of children full-time. The kids in my program will be treated as though they were my own! With care, love, and patience, they’ll be able to cultivate the skills they need for their futures.

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.
