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.


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!


Ms. Fateima

Healthy Meals & Snacks

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. Socorro

Play-Based Learning

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.

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.
