Ms. Lauren

Montessori Approach

I’m a mom of two, who used to work full-time in the healthcare industry and in public health, so I have first-hand experience of what it’s like to find child care. I know how frustrating the process can be! So when I opened Day Street Discovery School, I wanted to create the child care program that I wish I’d been able to find for my own daughters. At Day Street Discovery School we put families first, and we see parents as crucial partners in developing a child care experience that best fits their families’ needs. We do this by developing open lines of communication, so no questions ever go unasked or unanswered. From nap schedules to potty training concerns, I am always willing to collaborate with parents and families to find a solution that works for everyone! I feel very lucky to be able to draw on the passion I have for my children’s education and development, my own experiences with navigating child care, and my professional healthcare and public health knowledge to provide a service that I know is really needed for local families.


Ms. Louisventha

Infant Care

Having my own daycare is wonderful! I have lots of experience with kids - from babysitting, working as a bus monitor, and raising my own two kids – one of whom is now twenty-two. I did lots of reading and storytelling when my children were young and this made a world of difference once they started school - I love doing this for my daycare kids too! I also love that no two days are the same here - there is always something new to learn and I really focus on that in my program - along with providing a caring environment full of learning, love and respect.


Ms. Rachel

Play-Based Learning

Children can teach us a lot about life! The best part of every day is just sitting down with them at lunch and talking to them. They see the world in such a unique way, and their honesty and compassion is inspiring. Working with children is also such a beautiful opportunity to assist neighboring families. When I was getting my Masters Degree (in a related field) and raising my own child, working part-time with children offered me a great deal of flexibility. Caregiving was so rewarding to me that I never left and never looked back! It’s wonderful to be able to offer a supportive environment for young children, and to be able to help their parents out, too.

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.
