Ms. Ilham

Play-Based Learning

I have 20 + years of experience taking care of young children. For me, one of the best parts of working with children is watching them explore and discover. I feel so fortunate to experience that every day and to share my skills and experience with families through my home-based child care program, where I focus on learning through play. I aim to create an environment that is nurturing and happy for the children I care about so much. So many parts of this job are fun, but I especially love to watch them express themselves. I can't imagine spending my days any other way. I’m also proud to do this important work. That’s especially true when I think about all the children I've taught and watched grow.

Ms. Sabina

Play-Based Learning

I have always loved children, babysitting for my nieces and nephews whenever I had the chance. I didn’t know it could be a career for me, as I was working for John Hancock Financial Services, until my sister-in-law introduced me to family child care programs and gave me the information to start my own. This decision was spurred not only by my love for working with kids, but because of my own experience having two young children and knowing how hectic and overwhelming it is to get to work and do the drop offs. I wanted to offer a program that could relieve stress on parents and also be something I love to do. I’m also always trying to further my own education. Currently I am enrolled in Early Childhood Education courses that are enhancing the program already and I have a Child Development Associate Degree.

Play-Based Learning

I have always had a passion for working with children, and after staying home for several years to raise my own children I decided to open my own family daycare. I figured if I can raise triplets, I can do anything! More than ten years later I have learned I was right—there’s nothing else I would rather do. I have worked with all types of children, and building trust with each child and their parents is one of the most important parts of my work. One of my most memorable children was a four-year-old girl, who started off very angry and on her second day ripped the wallpaper off of my wall. When I asked her why, she answered, “Because I’m mad. I’m not a good girl. Everyone is always telling me how bad I am.” I was sad to hear this from such a small child, and made sure that every day she was with me I gave her lots of hugs and kisses and told her what a good girl she was. She changed dramatically as a result. Every day she told me she loved me. With her newfound positive attitude she was able and excited to play with other children, learn, and explore. I aim to ensure every child in my care knows that they are loved, supported, and able to do whatever they set their mind to.

Ms. Ashley

Play-Based Learning

My favorite thing about caring for children is watching them learn and grow. That has been a highlight for me throughout my 15 years of experience. I have worked as an early childhood educator in early childhood education programs, and most recently I have been taking care of my own children. People have said that I create an environment that is nurturing and comfortable. I focus on children's wellbeing, and I especially love to sing and dance with them. I’m proud when I think about all the children and families I've impacted over the years. That's what makes this work so special.

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.
