Ms. Jocie

Play-Based Learning

Before I opened Little Heavenly Moments Daycare, I worked for thirteen years as a medical assistant—with a specialty in pediatrics—and raised two daughters of my own. I love taking care of people, and I bring that same mindset to my program. I want children and their parents to feel safe, understood, and nurtured. It’s about getting on their level and meeting kids where they are. I think my love for kids and caretaking comes from growing up as the youngest of seven siblings. By the time I was old enough to care for children, I had lots of nieces and nephews running around. Now I have twenty-seven! I think it’s such a treat to help children grow into beautiful adults.

Ms. Viry

Play-Based Learning

I started working at a daycare when I was looking for a summer job, and it turned into something that I love. I worked for five years at that daycare, first in the toddler room and then with preschool-aged children. I loved all parts of the job - working with parents, circle time, story time, activities, implementing the curriculum. I transitioned to working as a nanny for individual families, and I learned so much from each family I worked with. I learned more about the family side of raising children; I became part of the village for each child I cared for. I also learned lots of specific skills - speech therapy, techniques to aid physical and cognitive development - because of the individual needs of the children for whom I was a nanny. I loved working one-on-one, but I missed the sense of the classroom and the community that I always build there. Now that I have opened my program, I get to combine the best of both worlds. I have a classroom community, a curriculum, and a daily routine while applying the personalized attention and love that I learned so much about as a nanny. I am an educator who is shaping children for the future, and I would like to make an impression on every child.

Ms. Arlinda

Play-Based Learning

I have always loved taking care of children, and have raised two of my own. I am fascinated by children’s psychology, and I am inspired to find different ways of working with children based on their individual needs and personalities. The most important part of what I do is making sure children are safe and feel secure enough to learn and grow in my care.

Ms. Fleurette

Play-Based Learning

I have 20 years of experience taking care of young children. For me, one of the best parts of working with children is watching them explore and discover. 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 learning through play. I aim to create an environment that is warm and encouraging for the children I care about so much. So many parts of this job are fun, but I especially love to sing and dance with them. 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 and families I've impacted over the years.

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 chat - we’re here to help.

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