Q&A with Ms. Linda

What inspires you to care for young children?

Children should always be treated with love and care. In my home daycare, every child gets plenty of loving attention. My program is small enough for me to really be there for every child and to listen and offer patience and care to both them and their families. All of my daycare kids bring something special to our little group – themselves! Getting to know them and their caregivers as the days go by is very special, and our group becomes like a big family. We make so many wonderful memories during our time together.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

A daycare program should have lots of playtime! Little ones learn so much through play and just by being with each other and having fun. My program follows a set schedule from day to day. The kids get excited about all kinds of activities – they really love to sing, dance, and make art. I have noticed over the years that young children especially like working together to create something new and creative, so I give them plenty of chances to do just that. We have lots of fun throughout the day, but If I had to pick a favorite part of our time together, it would be story time. I love finding special books to read to the group. Sharing stories and looking at illustrations together makes us all feel happy!

What’s one thing parents should know about your program?

After my program, most children are ready for that next big step – kindergarten! This makes me feel so proud! Even though the goodbyes can be bittersweet after so much time spent together, I’m grateful to be a part of so many children’s first ‘school’ days and to be able to prepare them to move on to bigger things! If there’s one thing I want parents to know about my program, it’s that their children will feel safe, loved and cared for in my home. To me, these are the three things that young children need most - and these three things are really at the heart of my program.

Every day, through engagement in the arts, our children learn to open their imagination, to dream just a little bigger and to strive every day to reach those dreams.

Rates & Openings

Daycare rates depend on how old your child will be and what your schedule looks like. 5 days / week might get a slight discount, and infant rates are usually more than toddlers’. Finding a spot also depends on age and schedule because each daycare has a limited number of openings for each age range.

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.
