Ms. Silvana

Play-Based Learning

Kids really feel it if you have passion and interest in what you are doing. My daycare kids know that I love all the time I get to spend with them and that I’m so passionate about teaching them new things – and this gets them excited to learn! Working in childcare in my home country of Colombia for twenty years, and as a lead teacher in a school here in the U.S. for eight years taught me so much about how kids learn and develop – and I’m so excited about using what I know to help kids grow in my own program.


Ms. Bladymar

Great Outdoor Space

My home daycare is all about family! I’m lucky enough to have my twenty-year-old daughter as my assistant, and our daycare kids and their parents truly become part of our family too as the days go by. As a mom and a former nanny, I know how to create a nurturing environment for kids, and my daughter and I are a fantastic team. We offer an inclusive, bilingual program where we speak both English and Spanish and give kids lots of opportunities to learn and grow. Caring for kids is so gratifying for both of us!


Ms. Dawn-Jean

Play-Based Learning

Finding high quality childcare for my own children was such a nightmare that I realized I had to do it myself! I promise it was supposed to be temporary, and here I am almost 20 years later, having fallen into my calling. I've incorporated so many wonderful aspects into my daycare, from language to yoga, because I want the kiddos I care for to flourish! My favorite thing about caring for children is that they start to show you their little personalities. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 32 years of experience. People have said that I create an environment that is welcoming 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 special.


Ms. Nadege

Bilingual Daycare

Every child is a unique and special part of the world. In my program, I work with parents to make sure that their child is getting the special care they need. My daycare is program is all about the children and their families. When we all work together, it makes a big difference and allows me to get to know a child so much better. This makes it easier to teach and encourage every day! What I love most about having a daycare is the special little community that forms through my home program.

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.
