Q&A with Ms. Rosa

What inspires you to care for young children?

Young children are so excited to learn! At this stage in their development, they’re able to absorb a lot of information, and they’re eager to try new things. That warm and welcoming energy is so inspiring to be around. After graduating with a degree in Early Childhood Education, I taught Spanish for all age ranges, up to the eighth grade. Watching those children progress and take pride in their education was one of the most rewarding experiences, and I’m hopeful that the kids in my program will fall in love with learning, too.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

At my program, the children themselves will play a big role in determining what our days look like. We’ll follow a Montessori curriculum, which means that we will be guided by their natural curiosities and talents. Instead of putting pressure on kids to meet certain milestones, we place a lot of trust in their instincts. That said, a wide array of activities will be readily available to them. From outdoor play to arts and crafts, they’ll always be engaged and encouraged to use their imaginations and creativity. The kids will also have a chance to pick up new languages: Spanish, French, and Mandarin! They’re really fun skills to pick up alongside peers, and they promote communication.

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

Honesty and openness are an important part of this community! As a long-time, dedicated educator and a new mother myself, I’m really looking forward to connecting not only with the kids but with their families as well. When I was a teacher, I always liked to open the lines of communication between myself and parents. Hopefully the whole family will feel like this daycare is an awesome support system, a friendly place they can turn to for any extra support or solutions.

A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove, but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.

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.
