Ms. Kanchan

Play-Based Learning

When I was growing up, I was always taking care of the younger kids in the family. Later, I went to boarding school, where I also helped care for the kids in younger grades—so I was really drawn to children right away! After I graduated from school, I taught second grade and worked as a social worker with low-income, at risk youth in India. Then, I had two children of my own, and I wanted to make sure they received a high-quality education. I also wanted to keep working in child care, so I decided I could achieve both goals by opening my own program in my home. It was a great decision—I love teaching the children in my program and supporting local families. I feel very lucky that I was able to discover my passion at such a young age and dedicate my entire life to working with young children! Being around kids motivates me to work harder every day. No other job can give you that.


Ms. Yolanda

Play-Based Learning

I am an experienced childcare provider with expertise in Early Childhood Education. Twenty-five years ago, I started working with children as a parent volunteer at my children’s nursery school, and I loved it so much that I became certified as a teacher’s aid at Head Start. From there, I earned my associate degree and then my bachelor’s degree in human services. I’ve worked as a teacher in homes and in traditional classrooms, a social worker with children and families, a family advocate, and an early intervention developmental specialist. I love my work with infants, toddlers, and families, and now it’s time to bring the classroom to my own home.


Ms. Esmirna

Play-Based Learning

I started working with children when I was 17 years old and worked for catholic charities for 6 years. I’ve been licensed through the EEC for a decade and have been able to give a lot of time to improving my teaching methods over time. I embrace teaching as an opportunity to inspire and empower. As a teacher, it is my goal to enhance student learning as a transformative experience. I want the kids to feel personally changed and empowered by their time in my program. I like the kids to engage with the things they’re learning, and directly relating stories and activities to their lives is a great way to do that. I also strive to understand each child’s unique learning style and teach them as individuals. While the children might sometimes dictate what they want to learn that day, I have a responsibility to inspire them too. I tailor my activities to what the kids have taught me about who they are, how they learn, and what their interests are. I am passionate about finding the most effective ways to stimulate and sustain growth for the kiddos while they’re in my care. Throughout our time together, I am inspiring them to grow intellectually, cultivating curiosity, providing opportunities for developing relationships, clarifying values, and uplifting their spirits.


Ms. Maria

Early Intervention Expertise

When it comes to taking care of children, know-how and experience is important! Not only am I a mother and a grandmother, but I’ve been in the field of education for over thirty years. In those three decades I have met so many special children and families and have worked with many different types of learners. My home daycare is a wonderful environment for learning – with different themes and activities and special times together throughout the year. I really work with parents and caregivers as partners, and my goal is to make sure every child learns a bit, moves a bit, and has a bit of fun during their day. I know I sure do!

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.
