Ms. Shante

Great Outdoor Space

Some people just know what they want to do from a young age, and I’m definitely one of them. My very first job was working as a teacher in a daycare center and opening my own home daycare is something I have wanted to do ever since! The best part of my job is that I get the opportunity to create a safe environment where kids can learn and have fun every day. Contributing to my community in such a special way is so special.

Ms. Tierra

Special Needs Experience

There is so much for a young child to learn, and it’s really exciting to help them map their journey. Getting to know each kid as an individual, and guiding them as they find their passion, is such a rewarding experience. Watching them grow into even more incredible human beings and knowing you played a part in that is the reason I love what I do every day. Taking care of children has always come quite naturally to me. When I was very young, my siblings and I started our own babysitters’ club. Becoming a mother (to a wonderful 16-year-old daughter) really reinforced my love of children, and I got licensed when I was helping out with my niece. Over the years, I’ve had the joy of meeting a lot of really awesome kids, and I’m looking forward to getting to know even more of them through this daycare!

Let’s find a really good daycare for you

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.
