Ms. Kendra

Play-Based Learning

I have a bachelor’s degree in medicine, and I worked as a doctor in the Dominican Republic. I have always loved helping people and caring for people, but I never thought I would end up working with kids other than my own. Three years ago, I started working as a behavioral therapist, specifically helping kids with autism and related disorders, and I fell in love with it. I have two kids, and I’m expecting another one. I know the challenges that come with finding the right fit for my own kids, and I have the professional skills to offer a lot of what they’re not getting in their current daycare settings. I know there are other parents who have difficulty sending their kids to daycare, and I want to help solve that problem. I want to be the person who makes the difference.


Ms. Mayra

Play-Based Learning

A small-scale daycare in Peabody, Ms. Mayra provides care for just 10 children at a time. As with all home daycares, her program is licensed by the state and she’s completed training in childhood ages & stages, medication administration, and food safety. In this mixed-age group program, children get the socialization, stimulation and support they need to learn and grow. Parents are often surprised to discover home daycares like Ms. Mayra right in the neighborhood. See more details and take the survey to see if she has an opening for your little one.


Ms. Elisa

Play-Based Learning

I went to college for psychology and afterward began working with senior citizens first. Over time, my positions took me to younger and younger people until I was working with children who had gone through trauma. I worked with these children for four years before nannying for two years while I had my own children. By 2011, I was ready to have something of my own and continue in the child care field that I loved. Having a family child care program allowed me to not only work with children but also have the consistency that my family and the families I work with needed. I’m so glad I did because it is the most rewarding job anyone could have! We also just received an award for Best Child Care in Peabody in 2019, which is a huge affirmation of the work we’re doing.


Ms. Evelin

Play-Based Learning

It’s so important to be passionate about kids when you are working with them every day! Caring for children has been my calling for as long as I can remember, and before moving to the U.S. I went to school to be a primary education teacher. I practiced that profession for eight years and learned so much about children and what it takes for them to thrive! After volunteering with Family and Children's Services in Lynn, Massachusetts for a year, I realized that I wanted to have my own program where I could encourage children in my own way. The learning environment I have set up in my home recognizes children as core participants, and I am here to guide them in any way that I can. I consider it a blessing to be able to do this work.

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.
