Ms. Janine

Play-Based Learning

I have 13 years of experience taking care of young children. For me, one of the best parts of working with children is that they start to show you their little personalities. 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 calm 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. As a mother myself, I know how sacred time is with our children. I bring that same love, attention and nurturing to the little ones that I welcome into my home daycare!


Ms. Scarlet

Play-Based Learning

I am an educator and mother of three children. I started working with children after I started my own family. I worked as an assistant in a daycare for three years. I’ve also looked to learn as much as I can about child development and what makes family child care programs work best for the children. I’ve taken many different courses and workshops such as, Development of Child Learning, Food for Children, and others. I’m interested not only in spending more time with my children and being home with them, but also helping my community and other children grow. I love a child’s ability to learn, along with what we can learn from them. They teach me new things just as much as I teach them. I also love the innocence and sweetness that each of them has.


Ms. Alialis

Language Immersion

Young children make progress every day. They learn to count. They learn to tie their shoes. They start taking themselves to the bathroom. They make new friends. The list could go on and on! As a stay-at-home mother of an 11-year-old and a 4-year-old, I realized how great it was to be able to celebrate these small moments with my little ones. Young kids can be so inspiring, and they really appreciate sharing this time with someone who is devoted to their growth. By starting this program, I hoped to offer myself as a support system to local parents looking for a trustworthy caregiver. The kids in my program will be treated like family. They will have someone cheering them on every step of the way!


Ms. Vanessa

Arts & Music

Young kids are so much fun to be around. They bring such a unique perspective to everyday routines. They make you see the world differently. I’ve raised two daughters (ages 11 and 14) and worked as an assistant at another daycare. Both were incredibly rewarding experiences that made me realize that caregiving is my passion. Watching these little ones grow up to become their own people is really inspiring, and I’m eager to help them in their journey.

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.
