Ms. Juliana

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 all need love and care. 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 friendly and happy for the children I care about so much. So many parts of this job are fun, but I especially love to read books to 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 I've helped grow and learn.

Ms. Sydney

Play-Based Learning

My favorite thing about caring for children is watching them learn and grow. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 12 years of 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 encouraging and engaging. I focus on learning through play, and I especially love to watch them express themselves. I’m proud when I think about all the children I've helped grow and learn. That's what makes this work so amazing. It's so special to me to be able to encourage children's learning through play and exploration. As a mother and Expressive Therapist myself, I realize that little ones do best in small, structured programs. I'm thrilled to share my preschool with my neighborhood!

Play-Based Learning

Even though children are only in daycare for a small part of their life, it’s incredible to have this glimpse at the people they will become. This age is such a special part of their development. After having two of my own children and babysitting for other families, I understand how important it is for every child to be in a nurturing environment. Obviously not everyone’s needs and interests are the same. Creating a setting in which each kid will be happy and thrive is a unique and exciting puzzle.

Ms. Lindita

Play-Based Learning

From the moment you meet me it'll be obvious how much I love caring for children! I've been doing it for decades and the families I work with become my family, too. My favorite thing about caring for children is watching them learn and grow. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 20 years of experience. I have worked as a teacher in daycare centers, and most recently I have been teaching pre-K. People have said that I create an environment that is engaging and nurturing. I focus on exploration and imagination, and I especially love to see them start to walk and talk. 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.

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 - we’re here to help.

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