Ms. Cassie

Infant Care

My daycare program is a place where children learn! I go out of my way to work with parents and caregivers so that every child can thrive in our community. I began working with kids as a teen – babysitting for the children of neighbors – and this began a journey to a dual Masters degree in Elementary and Special Education - and my own home daycare program! My education and my experience with kids really helps me create an environment for learning, and this is what I love most about what I do – being able to use my skills, experience, and training to help kids grow.


Ms. Olga

Reggio Emilia Approach

Helping young children make progress in their personal journeys is the most rewarding part. Once, I was working with a 5-year-old whose mother was having a hard time potty training him. He was also having a hard time socializing with other children. When he started working with us, we were able to give him more attention and encouragement, which worked wonders for his confidence! Soon, he was able to use the bathroom all by himself—and he became more social in the classroom, too! Seeing that growth (and how proud he was of himself) made all the difference. It was also a joy to be able to problem-solve with his parents. We look forward to working with all families as partners in this process. It’s relationships and success stories like these that made me want to open my own daycare after working at others for several years: so I could have a more active hand in designing the program and connecting with parents, as well as getting to know the children and figuring out what’s best for them.


Ms. Chotimanee

Infant Care

I used to work for the school district and I’ve found myself that I love to play, teach and share the stories with the kids.

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.
