Infant Care

I have been around children my whole life! I started babysitting when I was 12 years old and as I grew older and had my own child, I babysat more and more for single mothers. After many years working in business, I decided to combine my love of children with my business skills. I started taking courses and learning about program planning and learning and development in children. I loved it! While I worked for a little while in a daycare center, I decided to open my own program because my own son went to a family child care program growing up. The provider was so helpful to me and set up a loving environment for my son, so I felt very comfortable. I aim to give that same comfort to parents who want their child in a smaller home setting for child care. Not only that, but development is one of the most important aspects of my program too. I love seeing how quickly children learn and helping them grow is a joy for me.

Play-Based Learning

I believe that providing a positive and nurturing environment will instill lessons that will last a lifetime! As an avid practitioner of play-based learning, I am always looking for fun themed activities, games and crafts that will be interesting for infants and toddlers using a lot of materials that is readily available around the house. I also use Funshine Express buttercups curriculum for themed arts and crafts designed for ages one to three years old. With a background in Business Administration and long-time business owner, I run my daycare with a healthy mix of flexibility and the predictable structure that children thrive on. I like to spend my free time with my two teenagers and husband traveling to different places, cooking healthy foods, trying international cuisines and watching movies together as a family.

Montessori Approach

I’m a mom of two, who used to work full-time in the healthcare industry and in public health, so I have first-hand experience of what it’s like to find child care. I know how frustrating the process can be! So when I opened Day Street Discovery School, I wanted to create the child care program that I wish I’d been able to find for my own daughters. At Day Street Discovery School we put families first, and we see parents as crucial partners in developing a child care experience that best fits their families’ needs. We do this by developing open lines of communication, so no questions ever go unasked or unanswered. From nap schedules to potty training concerns, I am always willing to collaborate with parents and families to find a solution that works for everyone! I feel very lucky to be able to draw on the passion I have for my children’s education and development, my own experiences with navigating child care, and my professional healthcare and public health knowledge to provide a service that I know is really needed for local families.

Play-Based Learning

My favorite thing about caring for children is watching them explore and discover. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 40 years of experience. I have worked as an early childhood educator in early childhood education programs, and most recently I have been running my own program. People have said that I create an environment that is welcoming and friendly. I focus on exploration and imagination, and I especially love to take children outside to explore and play. I’m proud when I think about all the children I've helped grow and learn. That's what makes this work so special.

FAQs

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.
