Montessori Approach

I love being around little ones, and always volunteered in my own kid’s classrooms. That’s how I fell in love with the Montessori approach to learning and decided to train to be a Montessori educator! Working in this type of school setting has been so inspiring - but my true dream has always been to open my own program. Creating a wonderful place for kids to learn and encouraging them every day makes me so happy. I approach everything I do with a positive mindset and the kids in my program really feel that and benefit from the positive environment here.

Small Class Sizes

The progress that young children can make in such a short time is remarkable. It’s inspiring to watch them grow, retain new knowledge, and hone their skills. Working with kids has been a lifelong love of mine—especially after helping with two stepchildren and three grandkids! In 2014, I got licensed to open a daycare, and every day since has been filled with beautiful new experiences. The kids in this program will learn so much in their time here, and my hope is that they also pick up important life lessons. They’ll gain confidence, independence, and a sense of self here, too. Every child wears these qualities differently, and it’s really nice to know you had a small part in helping them become this version of themselves.

Academic Prep

Working with children is such a joy for me! I have been licensed through the EEC since 2016. Before having my own program, I was a certified in-home daycare assistant for a year. I later worked at an after school program for another year before moving into a preschool teacher role. I decided to open my own family child care program when the preschool I worked at had to decrease hours for its employees. I wanted to be with the children more of the time and thought that opening my own program would lead me to be able to work with children all day long!

Ms. Adalgisa

Play-Based Learning

I'm a mother to two wonderful daughters, and I've always cared for the children in my family and community. When the pandemic hit and families were turning to me, I realized the opportunity was right in front of me. I had to open my own family child care to do what I love and serve my neighborhood! I started working with children as a special education teacher in my home 6 years ago, and I have been caring for children ever since. Opening my own child care program in my home gave me the opportunity to create the encouraging, friendly environment that I think is so important. I especially love to sing and dance with them, 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 helping children work through challenges. One of the best parts of working with children is watching them learn and grow. It's such a gift to guide the children in my program as they grow.

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 or email - we’re here to help.

We’re online Monday - Friday from 8am to 6pm Eastern.
