Q&A with Ms. Ysabel

What inspires you to care for young children?

It’s so motivating when the children come to the program, energized and eager to take on the day. Their natural penchant for learning encourages everyone around them to look at the world with a similar openness and excitement. After raising two children (who are now adults), I’ve realized my calling is to continue to offer care and support for the kids in my area. Six years ago, I opened my doors to the families in my community, and it’s been the most rewarding experience.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

Kids will learn here in a loving and safe environment! A lot of what the children will encounter at this daycare will be similar to what they’ll find in preschool. We’ll do some preparation for kindergarten, but we’ll also have a ton of fun! Kids really love the parts of the day that let them get creative and that challenge them. We do a lot of arts and crafts projects, and it’s so lovely to see what they create! We also have story time, which is a wonderful way to get them excited about reading and learning through literature. It’s really important to build the foundation that’s going to set them up for success in the rest of their schooling.

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

The children in my program and their parents can really count on me. At this daycare, the kids will have someone looking out for their best interests. Their health and happiness is what’s most important. A huge part of what paves the path to success is open communication with the families involved. We will hopefully develop a relationship of trust and a good rapport. Parents should know that I’m really looking forward to working closely with them, so that we can all be on the same page about the care their child is receiving. Sometimes, this can lead to uncomfortable conversations. One time, I had to speak privately with parents about the possibility that their child might be on the autism spectrum. It was a difficult talk, but we were thankfully able to find their child the support he needed! Parents can depend on me and look to me as a resource.

If children feel safe, they can take risks, ask questions, make mistakes, learn to trust, share their feelings, and grow.

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.
