Ms. Brandi

Faith Based Program

There is no limit to what young children can accomplish when they are properly nurtured. There is no greater joy than watching a child discover something for the first time—that moment when something clicks for them. Kids have so much natural curiosity and hope, and each child deserves to have a safe place they can thrive in and a trusted person to turn to in times of need. As a mother and a nurse, I have had a lifelong passion for caregiving. Working with kids has always had a special place in my heart. After having my youngest child, I realized how wonderful it would be to spend more quality time at home with them. This program was borne out of a desire to help others have this same special attention. Individualized education makes all the difference and can really jumpstart a child’s love of learning. At this program, the children will have the benefit of being looked after by an experienced nurse and a mother passionate about early childhood education.

Ms. Esther

Play-Based Learning

Children love to learn new things, and it’s so much fun to be a part of that! I love having a small home daycare because we really get to know each other and create such special bonds as the days go by. Every interaction is a chance to learn – whether it’s a book we read together, an art project , or a fun activity with friends. I have found joy being around children since I began babysitting as a teenager, and the best part of having my own program is being able to give so many families a place where they know their little ones will have fun, feel safe, and learn and grow. Offering this type of positive environment for families in my community brings me a lot of happiness.

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.

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.
