Ms. Lisa

Infant Care

Helping children find their rhythm in life is the most rewarding thing! It’s incredible to meet them when they’re young and watch them keep getting better. During the time that children will be in daycare, they’ll have so many wonderful experiences: the first friends they make, the first time they recognize a word, the first time they remember celebrating a holiday or their birthday. It’s so special to be there for those moments. Even before having my two-year-old daughter, I was always known as the reliable person who loved kids. Within my church community, I was always happy to help local families and babysit. There was one family in particular whose kids I helped raise for over eight years. Those kids changed so much during that time, and it was always a joy to see them grow.


Ms. Bianca

Infant Care

Kids are so inventive and inspiring! As an artist, I so appreciate being around their youthful energy and all the imagination they bring into the world! I have twenty-five nieces and nephews and helping raise them has been a huge part of my life. As a mental health counselor for over ten years, I learned how to deal with challenges, encourage growth, and nurture minds and spirits. And as an artist, entrepreneur, and fashion designer, I put creativity into everything I do – including my daycare program! My home is a supportive, fun, and creative space where children learn, grow, and blossom.

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.
