Ms. Nadine

Reggio Emilia Approach

My favorite thing about caring for children is knowing that I influence their growth and development. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 16 years of experience. I have worked as an early childhood educator in daycare centers, and most recently I have been teaching pre-K. People have said that I create an environment that is engaging and warm. I focus on building independence, and I especially love to read books to them. 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. Sabrina

Play-Based Learning

My whole life has been dedicated to providing the best childcare possible. From nannying, to completing my degree in Early Childhood Education, to mothering my own two precious little ones, to home daycare - I've done it all and I love it all! Having just moved to a new neighborhood, I can't wait to share all I know and provide with new kiddos in Methuen. People have said that I create an environment that is friendly and warm. I focus on learning through play, and I especially love to watch them express themselves. I’m proud when I think about all the children I've helped learn. That's what makes this work so special.

Ms. Fouzia

Play-Based Learning

Building strong relationships of trust and love with children and families is the most important aspect of what I do. I raised my two children (who are now grown) myself, as a single mother. When children are in my home, they are “my babies” and I truly love and care for them as my own. I have worked with children for nearly 20 years, and I have loved every moment. I am fluent in English, French, and Arabic and am happy to teach children phrases in these languages. I also love art and frequently work on all different kinds of creative projects with the children.

Ms. Stephania

Play-Based Learning

My favorite thing about caring for children is watching them explore and discover. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 10 years of experience. I have worked as an early childhood educator in early childhood education programs. Children are my life and I love them like family! It's my dream to provide quality care to the kiddos of Lawrence and I'm uniquely qualified to do so with my medical background. People have said that I create an environment that is engaging and nurturing. I focus on learning through play, and I especially love to watch them express themselves. I’m proud when I think about all the children and families I've impacted over the years. That's what makes this work so special.

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.
