Ms. Patricia

Play-Based Learning

Children are naturally curious and creative, and it is so important to nurture both of those things. A safe, welcoming space is a key part of that. My home is comfortable, bright, and joyful, with something new to discover on every shelf and bookcase. My program is play based, so the children are usually having too much fun to notice how much they are learning, but I certainly notice! It never fails to amaze me how much children at this age are able to take in and absorb! Our community is a place where children can relax and be themselves. For me, it is a gift to be part of so many learning experiences and to provide a happy space where children can grow and thrive.

Ms. Jane

Play-Based Learning

I opened Jane’s Family Child Care five years ago when my two kids were in different schools and their schedules were really hard to figure out with the job I had. I love children, and this allowed me to help parents who needed good care while also having the schedule I needed for my own family. Now, my passion for early childhood development continues to grow, inspiring me to provide quality care for the children. My family also has grown so much because the children in my program feel like family to me. I have always loved kids, and running my program has given me a special opportunity to watch so many kids learn and grow. When they have individual breakthroughs and they show tremendous personal growth, it makes me so proud!

Ms. Jill

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 21 years of experience. I have worked as a teacher in an elementary school, and most recently I have been running my own program. People have said that I create an environment that is nurturing and engaging. I focus on learning through play, and I especially love to read books to them. I’m proud when I think about all the children I've taught. That's what makes this work so special. I've dedicated my life to nurturing, guiding and teaching children! As the mother of 8 yo twins, I know how sacred our little ones are - and I get such joy out of the precious years I have with them!

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.
