Ms. Francesca

Bilingual Daycare

Experience is so important when working with young children. I began working with kids by babysitting for nieces and nephews as a teenager and spending time with foster children in my family home - and from then to now, I have loved being around little ones! All that time spent caring for family taught me so much about child development and what kids need to learn and grow. Being able to use that knowledge in my own home daycare program to create a wonderful place for kids to spend their days is really special – and so is being part of so many milestones and growth moments every day.


Ms. Geovanny

Play-Based Learning

Ms. Geovanny’s home daycare caters to infants and toddlers, ages 3 months–6 years. As with every daycare on NeighborSchools, her program is licensed by the Office of Children and Family Services. That way you know providers have completed a 3-part background record check, and that their home environments have passed a detailed health and safety inspection. Ms. Geovanny’s daycare is a great option for parents that want that small-scale, personal feeling with a daycare provider you can develop a real relationship with. Take the survey to see if she has a spot that works for you or check out the full profile for more details.


Ms. Vallerie

Special Needs Experience

Kids learn so much from being around other kids their age! As a former kindergarten teacher, I know this from ten years of classroom experience! I also know just how to create a place where young kids of all ages can learn new things every day. Teaching children what they need to know to grow is the best part of what I do, and I love every minute of it. I have a first grader of my own – and every child I care for in my program becomes part of our family too. My daycare kids and their families mean so much to me!


Ms. Zenabo

Play-Based Learning

Every child is unique, and when you work with kids it’s important to be flexible! I always take time to get to know a child’s personality, energy level, and interests so I can connect to them and understand how they learn. I fine-tuned that flexible approach while working as a babysitter in my community and raising my own three children. I love to teach kids new things, and our space is set up with specialized areas for learning, snacks and meals, and activities. Kids are busy, engaged, and happy here, and that makes me happy too!

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 or email - we’re here to help.

We’re online Monday - Friday from 8am to 6pm Eastern.
