Ms. Mariam

Academic Prep

A good daycare program teaches children all kinds of important things about life! We learn so much in my program about so many different subjects – math, science, art, civics - and we also learn about manners, respect for others, and how to give back to our community. Children are so smart – they all have genius inside them and helping them bring that genius out and let it shine is so meaningful. I began my program because I knew I had a lot to offer to families in my community, and I feel very lucky to be able to work with so many special children and show them how much fun learning can be!


Ms. Stacy

Bilingual Daycare

All kids are special and helping them as they grow into who they are is such important work! I have been caring for my stepdaughter since she was a baby - and it’s been such a gift to be part of her growth and development over the years. Teaching and guiding kids in my community like I did with her is a dream come true – and the enthusiasm I feel for working with children really shows in every part of my program! Kids grow in so many ways here!


Ms. Tamika

Arts & Music

What do you love most about working with children? I love that I get to work as a team with so many parents and families, to make sure their child is happy and thriving. Every child in my daycare program is special, and our environment is set up for learning and growth. Sparking creativity is a big part of our program, and we have many different art materials and projects to choose from. Young children are so full of imagination! I love to see where that imagination takes them and witness all the wonderful things they come up with when given the time and space. It’s so inspiring!

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.
