Ms. Helen

Play-Based Learning

When I say I've been doing this for over 30 years, I mean that my own children grew up in my childcare and now I have my grand babies, too! I find so much joy in creating a safe and warm environment for little ones to grow and learn - it's my true passion! My favorite thing about caring for children is witnessing their curiosity and joy. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 35 years of experience. I have worked as a mom in my home, and most recently I have been running my own program. People have said that I create an environment that is welcoming and happy. I focus on allowing children to express themselves, and I especially love to watch them express themselves. I’m proud when I think about all the children I've helped grow and learn. That's what makes this work so special.

Ms. Marilia

Academic Prep

I started working with children in my home-based daycare 7 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 comfortable, encouraging 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 building independence. 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 all the children I've helped grow and learn. It's such a gift to guide the children in my program as they grow.

Ms. Viry

Play-Based Learning

I started working at a daycare when I was looking for a summer job, and it turned into something that I love. I worked for five years at that daycare, first in the toddler room and then with preschool-aged children. I loved all parts of the job - working with parents, circle time, story time, activities, implementing the curriculum. I transitioned to working as a nanny for individual families, and I learned so much from each family I worked with. I learned more about the family side of raising children; I became part of the village for each child I cared for. I also learned lots of specific skills - speech therapy, techniques to aid physical and cognitive development - because of the individual needs of the children for whom I was a nanny. I loved working one-on-one, but I missed the sense of the classroom and the community that I always build there. Now that I have opened my program, I get to combine the best of both worlds. I have a classroom community, a curriculum, and a daily routine while applying the personalized attention and love that I learned so much about as a nanny. I am an educator who is shaping children for the future, and I would like to make an impression on every child.

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.
