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. Sophia

Great Outdoor Space

Daycare programs give kids a safe place to learn and grow! I first started caring for children in my home country of Morocco, and here in the U.S. I have worked at a daycare and as a preschool teacher in a local church. I have a big heart and it is devoted to caring for children! In order to flourish, kids need to feel safe and loved – and giving them that kind of environment is what I love most about what I do. It’s also wonderful to see how much joy and wonder kids experience every day as they play and learn!


Ms. Tamara

Play-Based Learning

Children’s infinite ability to learn and grow has always been an inspiration for me. As a social worker who worked with children on the spectrum, I saw how early intervention and access to the best services gave children the tools they needed to grow and learn. With the right resources and adult support, they could do anything. One of my favorite things when working with students was watching them go from knowing nothing about a subject to being proficient in it. It is a true passion for me to watch that process.


Ms. Hidai

Montessori Approach

Simply getting to know the children as individuals is the best part! The kids in my program will get an education designed specifically for them. It’s incredibly rewarding to craft a learning plan for each child and watch them thrive every day. For a lot of children, daycare is the first time they’re regularly interacting with people who aren’t in their immediate family. It’s so important that they feel supported and listened to during this moment of transition. Their opinions matter! Their interests guide our curriculum, while their unique challenges will be taken into account every step of the way. It’s so exciting when we find an activity, an arts project, or a book that really speaks to a child. Having a small daycare means that each child’s personality can really shine through.

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 or email - we’re here to help.

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