Ms. Vianka

Infant Care

Children have so much ahead of them! Every day brings discovery. At this age, they’re learning so much about the world and also about themselves. There’s nothing quite like introducing a kid to a story or a song that they really, genuinely love. It could mean you have a writer or a musician on your hands! With a little patience and guidance, there’s no telling what can happen, and that surprise is half the fun of working with children. Caregiving comes really naturally to me, personally. I’ve always been a nurturing person. I started working with the elderly, but after having four kids of my own (ages 10, 7, 2, and 7 months!), I realized how energizing it is to spend time nourishing the next generation.


Ms. Faida

Infant Care

Ms. Faida’s home daycare caters to infants and toddlers, ages 3 months–5 years. As with every daycare on NeighborSchools, her program is licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care. That way you know providers have completed a 3-part background record check, and that their home environments have passed a detailed health and safety inspection. Ms. Faida’s daycare is a great option for parents that want that small-scale, personal feeling with a daycare provider you can develop a real relationship with. Take the survey to see if she has a spot that works for you or check out the full profile for more details.


Ms. Ramonita

Play-Based Learning

My daughter Adela and I have always dreamed of having our own family child care program. Opening my own child care program in my home gave me the opportunity to create the happy, welcoming environment that I think is so important. I especially love to see them start to walk and talk, but the truth is that so many parts of the day and the week bring me a lot of joy. Through it all, I focus on learning through play. One of the best parts of working with children is watching them explore and discover. The work is incredibly rewarding, especially when I think about how I've prepared children for pre-K. It's such a gift to guide the children in my program as they grow.


Ms. Barbara

Play-Based Learning

All children deserve our attention, our dedication, and a quality education. Once they have access to these things, there’s truly no limit to what they can achieve! Growing up in a family with 16 brothers and sisters meant I was always around children and eager to help guide those younger than me. It’s a responsibility I took and continue to take very seriously. In fact, after having my own children, I also became a foster parent so I could give children in need a chance. In the 30 years that I’ve been a foster parent, I have met some great kids who have grown up to become even more remarkable adults. For me, caregiving is more than a passion. It’s a lifelong commitment to the children. Starting my own daycare program meant that I was able to create a safe space for kids to come and be themselves without judgment or reservation. Watching a child come out of their shell a little is the most rewarding thing! At my program, I have the joy of helping children thrive

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.
