Ms. Fateima

Late Pickup

Childcare has been part of my life for as long as I can remember – my mother was a childcare provider, so I grew up around kids of all ages! My program is friendly and I go out of my way to work with parents so that there is a strong connection between the home and my daycare program. The environment here is one where children are learning every day in lots of different ways. This is what I love most about what I do – encouraging children and being part of their growth.


Ms. Nyeka

Infant Care

At this stage, every little moment you spend with a child can have the biggest impact on their future. It’s incredible to think that when a kid picks up a book and learns to read for the first time, they could grow up to be the next voice of a generation. A kid who thrives during arts and crafts can, one day, produce work that’ll be hung in museums and galleries. Or perhaps a child makes a friend in this program, and that bond lasts for life. You just never know! I’ll be at the supermarket and run into a student I had several years ago, who will run up to me and tell me that our time together had such an impact on him. It’s incredibly rewarding! As a mother of two now-grown adults, I have had the joy of watching a full life unfold, and I’ve seen the effects of the lessons I’ve taught them. As an educator, I have also worked mostly with fifth and six graders, but during the pandemic, I had the opportunity to reach four and five year olds. It was a game-changing experience! After being an educator for 20 years, I am eager to achieve my dream of opening a daycare so I can continue to cheer on the next generation.


Ms. Nervia

Montessori Approach

Every child is exceptional in their own way! In my program, we implement diverse learning activities to meet the needs of every child and keep them engaged. We also work closely with parents to support learning and development, and enjoy the challenge of creating activities for kids of all ages, so that no child is left behind! After having my first child in 2012 and discovering childcare as my true passion, I decided to pursue a degree in early childhood special education. I wanted to build my knowledge, assist little ones who are not yet able to express themselves, and be a useful tool in my community. My passion has only grown stronger since then, and I have treated every child who has come into my home in the past nine years with love and care.

Let’s find a really good daycare for you

Get your own recommendations based on your preferences, daily routine, and what matters most to you.


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.
