Ms. Jannie

Infant Care

Young children inherently have such good hearts. They bring a curiosity and openness to the world that is inspiring to work with. They have so much energy when it comes to learning new things—whether it’s reading or the rules of a new game. They are eager to learn. Ever since I was a teenager, I have enjoyed being a guide for those younger than myself. I have raised three children of my own, and I am now incredibly lucky to have grandchildren as well! It’s amazing to be able to pass down traditions, knowledge, and love through the generations.

Ms. Elyvanessa

Infant Care

Being there for a child as they learn how to be in the world is so incredibly rewarding. It’s such a privilege to teach them new things and expose them to new experiences. When a kid finds something they really care about, they light up in a way that’s so heartwarming. After studying psychology and having a child of my own, it’s a wonder to see just how unique every individual is. You never know who is going to be drawn to singing or dancing or learning more about the natural world. Every day brings something surprising and amazing.

Ms. Tracey

Arts & Music

Being a part of so many children’s lives is very special and meaningful. This is exactly what led me to start my own program! From a young age, I could always be found at family gatherings spending time and having fun with kids – and now that I have my own program, the children in my care become just like family to me. I treat every child just like my own, and I have a lot of guidance to offer to families. Together, we can get through challenges or work through problems, and the families in my program know that I am always available to help or offer support.

Ms. Judy

Infant Care

Young children are such a beautiful reminder of how special human connection and bonding is. Every kid is unique, and each one needs something different in order to succeed. As a mother of a now-22-year-old, I have had a lot of experience with childcare. As a lifelong educator and caregiver, it’s such a joy to find the things that make them feel comforted and excited to be there. In 2006, I had a daycare, and there was a little boy who had a hard time transitioning into a new schedule. He had tantrums and was constantly upset about not being home with his family. His parents and I worked closely to create a routine that made him feel good about daycare. (His family even told me they stuck with some of our daily practices to get him used to going to school.) It was incredible to see the progress he made every day. In no time, he was happy to come to my program and be with his new friends.

Ms. Phylicia

Early Intervention Expertise

Children are always reaching new milestones. At this stage, every day brings new discoveries and skills and connections. There is no better feeling than watching a child gain confidence and be proud of what they’ve accomplished. As an older child, I often helped my mother take care of my siblings. I was always there to cheer them on and root for them. The kids in this program hopefully feel that same support. In fact, we even have achievement award parties sometimes to celebrate everyone’s growth!

Ms. Paola

Play-Based Learning

Every child deserves to have a safe and happy place to spend their days. This is my number one goal with my home daycare, to offer a place outside of their home where children can learn, grow, and feel comfortable and relaxed. My first job working with kids was as a school bus attendant, and it really made me see how much I love being around children and how much I enjoy their energy. Having my own program is rewarding - being able to work with children and families in my own community and knowing that my home is a place where children can learn, feel safe, and be themselves makes me just as happy as it makes them.

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. Milinaire

Play-Based Learning

Every child is a unique being with a spirit that radiates love and divine purpose! My daycare program nurtures and guides children to develop that spirit and let it grow even stronger. My journey as a daycare provider really began with taking care of the children in my own family - but this soon turned into something more, and I found myself called to create a beautiful, peaceful place where children are encouraged to be creative and expressive in their own unique ways. Word spread throughout my community - and this is how my program began! It makes me so happy to say that in my home program, every child is valued and cherished for who they are.


V

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. Marielys

Infant Care

There’s so much to celebrate with young children. They’re growing up so fast, and each day really marks a new stage in their development. Every time they learn something new, when a lesson clicks or when they’ve been practicing a skill and seeing improvement, it’s such a rewarding experience. They just light up! After having my own child (now 10 months old), I can still say that I treat every child who comes to my program like my own. Their accomplishments and their dreams matter to me, and it’s such a joy to help them realize their potential.

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. Shamonii

Young children deserve the world! It is such a privilege to spend time with them, to help them learn, and to find out what makes them happy. There is nothing like that lightbulb moment when a child is excited about a new project or figures out a skill they’ve been working on. Their smiles are what we strive for! Every kid is so unique, and they should be celebrated like the young kings and queens they are.

Ms. Nikita

Infant Care

Children have strong, individual personalities, and it’s such a pleasure to get to know them each. After raising children of my own and working at other daycares, I can certainly say that no two kids are alike, and it’s a joy to figure out their passions and dreams with them. A daycare program is also likely one of the earliest social settings for young children, and it’s an amazing chance for them to interact with kids their own age. So many children make their first real friends at daycare. It’s a beautiful thing to watch a friendship unfold!

Mr. Naftali

Infant Care

Daycare programs can really broaden a child’s horizons! I offer a Yiddish immersion program that is inclusive and welcoming to all. We have a special community here, and I have many years of experience working with kids. I got my license in 2008 as a public-school teacher and have been teaching in informal and formal settings for over a decade – and I have a two-year-old child and another on the way. Giving kids many different opportunities to learn and grow is what motivates me every day!

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. Yscaira

It takes a village to raise a child. I am so happy to give families a place to bring their children every day where they will learn from me and peers their age. I love being around little ones! I’ve been a babysitter for a lot of my life and also worked with autistic kids in a school setting. In both of those jobs I treated every child with lots of care, like they were my own! I love having my own business, and my mother and sister help with my daycare, so kids get plenty of one-on-one attention here!

Ms. Lizveny

Working with children takes a special kind of person. I am patient, welcoming, and understanding, and work hard to make sure my daycare kids’ needs are always met! My mother-in-law runs her own daycare and has taught me a lot about how successful programs work. She has been a great mentor and inspired me to open my own program. I'm so happy to be able to spend each and every day helping kids and families in my community!

Ms. Nervia

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.

Ms. Ana

Children grow so much just by interacting with me and with each other! My daycare is a place where children socialize and learn, and it’s an honor to be so many children’s very first teacher! I realized how much I enjoyed caring for kids while spending time with my nieces and nephews, and then while working as a teacher in a Montessori preschool. That job really helped me figure out so much about how I wanted my own daycare to operate, and gave me experience with all different types of children. I love helping kids learn and and take my role as a caretaker very seriously. I’m proud that so many families trust me with such an important job!

Ms. Ayna

Children should be excited to go to daycare and happy when they are picked up! This is true in my program - every child is treated with love and care here. We deeply enjoy getting to know our daycare kids and their families, and I am grateful that a volunteer position in foster care led me to this profession. It is truly what I am meant to do! One of the things I most enjoy is coming up with diverse and exciting activities - art, cooking, yoga, music, and more. Children are so curious and open to trying new things, and offering a variety of things to do really lights them up and leads to profound learning!

Ms. Socorro

Being around children every day is so much fun! I stumbled upon my career by accident – I’d been working with older children in New York City when I found myself in a toddler classroom one day and couldn’t believe how much imagination and energy was flying around the room! That day was a turning point for me, one that led to a master’s degree in early childhood education, a teaching certificate, and ten plus years of childcare - and counting!. I’m so grateful that I ended up in that classroom that day - working with young children is so rewarding and such a perfect fit for me.

Is there anything more incredible than watching a kid come out of their shell and really shine? Daycare is such a unique time for young children. Some of them take to the change so naturally, and they really look forward to seeing their friends every day. Others have a harder time adjusting, and that’s okay! With patience and empathy, we can create the kind of environment that lets a child get comfortable at their own pace. There was one child in my daycare who really struggled to interact with his peers. It was key to make him feel included and to try to involve him in activities without making him feel pressured. With time, he became more relaxed, and he was active and eager to participate. The best part of working with children is helping them find confidence in themselves!

Young children are so enthusiastic! They are able to take in new information and learn new skills so quickly. It’s a wonder to be around! There was one child in particular who I nannied for who seemed really interested in art at a young age. One day, we got paints and I taught him how to make a picture. He really enjoyed learning in this hands-on way, and he was so excited to show his family what he had created! It was a small moment of independence for him because he couldn’t believe he made it himself. We’re all about celebrating these steps at my program. There is nothing quite like that moment when a child realizes what they are capable of.

Every day is different when you’re working with young children. Their enthusiasm for learning is exciting. It’s incredible to be able to combine my passion for teaching with my natural inclination towards childcare. Childhood is such a special time, and kids deserve the attention and support they need to get ahead. My own three kids (ages 5, 7, and 8) are a joy to raise, and it was my hope that I could assist local families and give them some flexibility by opening this daycare in our neighborhood.

Ms. Cecilia

Whether the child is an infant or nearly in grade school, their unique personalities and approaches to life each inspire me in a different way. Each child I have had the pleasure of caring for has inspired me to help the next generation and help them flourish into the best version of themselves. There is nothing more rewarding than being a part of that process. Watching my own three children grow up was my most intense experience of this but I quickly gained experienced nannying infants in my neighborhood and then worked in a school with children 6 and under as well.

Young children have so many incredible experiences in front of them. It’s such a pleasure to help introduce them to the world. At daycare, kids make remarkable progress in their everyday lives: making new friends, learning new words, creating something in arts and crafts that they’re really proud of. Knowing that they reached these milestones in an environment you created, under your guidance, is so rewarding. A love of children and caregiving runs in my family. My mom owned a daycare, and I’ve basically always been surrounded by children. Hopefully the children and families in this program feel the love of these generations!

Ms. Kandys

Play-Based Learning

Young children are so receptive to new experiences, and they’re really excited to have someone to share those with. Having some one-on-one guidance, coupled with time spent in a small group of peers, makes all the difference for a kid, socially and developmentally. The kids in my program look to me as someone who is really invested and involved in their day-to-day education. As a mother of three (ages 22, 18, and 8), I know how difficult it can be to juggle everything and give your children the individualized attention they deserve all the time. This daycare was born out of a desire to spend more time with my own kids, and to help local families find a trusted caregiver for their little ones. It’s hard to believe that it’s been thirteen years since the daycare opened, but every day since has been filled with joy, laughter, and learning.

The bonds that form while working with kids are just priceless. There is a real sense of community in my program. The kids learn from me and from one another, and friendships really blossom here. My childcare journey started with babysitting my nephews, which I did for eight years! I found so much joy in being part of their growth and development, and that led me to work as a daycare assistant while in college. When I had my own child, I realized how much of a struggle it is to find a high quality daycare that’s also affordable. This is something I want to change with my program - I want to help parents who are facing the same childcare challenges I did! I’m so happy to be able to support my community in this way.

Ms. Daisy

Home daycare programs have a cozy, comfortable feel to them, especially mine! I come from a large extended family and have been taking care of kids since I was a teenager – so it just felt natural to open my own program and care for kids as a career. In the twenty plus years since that opening day, I’ve worked with kids of all ages - even newborn babies – and raised three kids of my own. Helping kids learn and watching their personalities develop is just the best! My daycare families know that they can count on me to support them and lend a helping hand whenever they need one.

Let’s find a really good daycare for you

FAQs

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.
