Ms. Katie

Play-Based Learning

My program is all about family! I began working with children as a mother’s helper and I still see myself as a helper – but now I’m working in partnership with families to make sure their children learn and grow. My daycare space is in the home I grew up in, and my program is friendly and welcoming to all. Sharing a special place so close to my heart with so many children is just wonderful, and so are all the new memories we make here every day. Having my own daycare has been a longtime dream, and the very best part of realizing that dream has been the children and families I’ve met and worked with along the way!


Ms. Mahmuda

Play-Based Learning

I am a proud mother of two young children, ages 2 and 5, and I am passionate about childhood development. Young children are like sponges, and what they learn when they are little will shape their whole lives. Combining my love for working with children and my business experience, I aim to bring a high-quality Family Child Care program to our neighborhood in Woburn.


Ms. Kathryn

Small Class Sizes

Children and parents love Ms. Kathryn’s daycare for its small-scale, personal feel. Fully licensed by the state, her program focuses on infants and toddlers, and the mixed-age range helps children learn to socialize in a small group setting. Parents often prefer home daycare when looking for options that are closer to home, where they can develop a long-term relationship with the provider. Many come to see the provider as an extension of the family, leaning on them for advice on all sorts of parenting questions. Check out Ms. Kathryn’s full profile and take the survey to see if she is a good match for your family.


Ms. Lynnelle

Montessori Approach

Earlier in my life, I was a math person. I majored in math and earned a degree in computer networks. I was a daytime analyst until my daughter was born. Ever since becoming pregnant with her, I wanted to learn all I could about childhood education theories, from all the way back to the 18th century. I found it all incredibly fascinating, and I was especially captivated by the Montessori philosophy. I enrolled myself into a course to earn a certificate in Montessori teaching so I could teach my daughter the Montessori way. My daughter was born in 2007 and by 2009 I had my certificate and thought, why not teach not only my daughter but other children as well using this method? So, I had my first EEC license in 2009. I feel so privileged to be able to play such an important role in young children’s lives, especially before the age of 6. It is a critical time and throughout my time working in the field, I’ve realized what a knack I have for teaching young kids. I love observing them and getting to know what they are thinking and what they want. I feel like a child whisperer! I feel my ability to understand them is a huge advantage. I do my absolute best every day to provide an environment for the children that they can develop in every aspect from physical, emotional, social, and cognitive. I am so ambitious for their little hearts, and I look at each child for the whole of them. I want to help parents raise their children, looking at every part of them, including life skills.

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.
