Ms. Ashley

Play-Based Learning

My favorite thing about caring for children is watching them learn and grow. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 15 years of experience. I have worked as an early childhood educator in early childhood education programs, and most recently I have been taking care of my own children. People have said that I create an environment that is nurturing and comfortable. I focus on children's wellbeing, and I especially love to sing and dance with them. I’m proud when I think about all the children and families I've impacted over the years. That's what makes this work so special.


Ms. Florence

Play-Based Learning

Working with children is a gift! I am a natural caregiver and a very loving person. From a young age, I took care of my sister and then all my nieces and nephews. I taught them, and my own children too – how to read and write – and found it so rewarding to see the kid’s confidence build as they learned these skills! I feel so lucky to be part of moments like that every day in my daycare program. I have a background in healthcare and taking care of people is my biggest strength. I’m so happy to be putting that to use, helping kids learn and grow to their full potential. Now that I have my own daycare, I could not imagine doing anything else!


Ms. Jillian

Play-Based Learning

A daycare program should be a place of joy and exploration! My program is all about free play, exploring the senses, and fostering a love of learning. I began working with children as a teen at my grandmother’s daycare – and that afterschool job quickly turned into a passion. Since then, I’ve worked with children as a cook, an art teacher, a one-on-one aide to a child with autism, and a teacher in a large classroom setting. These roles eventually led me to working with toddlers – and discovering that working with children this age is truly my calling! One of the best things about what I do is being apart of all the milestones (big and small) that happen every day. I love being able to support children, cheer them on, and celebrate their accomplishments – there is just nothing more rewarding!

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.
