Q&A with Ms. Maria

What inspires you to care for young children?

Getting to know these children as they find themselves is such a rewarding experience! Every day, they’re learning new things about the world and who they want to be. This is such a special time in their lives because they’re making new friends and discovering their interests. They’re asking really exciting questions about the way things work. It’s incredible to be even a small part of this stage in their life. I have four grown kids of my own—and one grandchild. In addition to being a mother, I’ve also been running my daycare for ten years. All of this experience has given me a great deal of patience, and as the years go by, I see again and again how much I genuinely love spending time with kids and creating an environment for them to grow in.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

Coming to this program is like getting started on the right track. At my daycare, we are going to do everything we can to set these kids up for happy, healthy futures. Something the children really love doing is arts and crafts. We have a bunch of fun projects that let them express themselves and be creative. They’ll also become acquainted with letters and numbers. When these things come up in school, it’ll feel less scary and more like seeing old friends! Hopefully, this makes them feel prepared and excited for the rest of their education. One unique thing we actively work on is potty training, starting at two years old. Parents are pretty grateful about this last one! Everything we do here is designed to help these children find success, not just in school, but in a well-rounded life.

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

The children in my program and their families are going to have me as a support network, always. Both the kids and their parents should feel like they have someone they can really trust and rely on. I’m invested in their health and overall wellbeing. With over 20 years of childcare experience, I like to think I’ve learned a lot along the way, and I’m eager to share my knowledge with fellow parents. We can tackle anything together. Once, there was a child who had been in my program ever since he was a baby. As he grew into a toddler, he really struggled to pay attention and wasn’t speaking. His parents and I were able to monitor his development, and ultimately, I recommended that they take him to a speech pathologist to see if there was any possible speech delay. Of course, it was a difficult conversation, but it was in the best interest of the child. With that little bit of extra help, he went on to reach his developmental milestones. Parents can expect that kind of dedication and open communication here.

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 or email - we’re here to help.

We’re online Monday - Friday from 8am to 6pm Eastern.
