Q&A with Ms. Teresa

Tell us about your experience working with young children?

This all started when I had a baby, and now my son is about to turn 39. When I had my first son, I was home taking care of him, and slowly I started taking care of other people’s children, too. I thought kids needed more of a relaxed environment where they could have a bad day and stay in their pajamas if they needed to. I thought I would work in this role as long as my kids were growing up, but now it’s the grandchildren who are coming through. I love giving all the kids in my program the freedom to be themselves, and I love that freedom for myself, too. Some kids call me Ms. Teri, and others call me Gram Gram. I really love working with infants and toddlers. They’re a lot of fun to be around; they learn so rapidly. It gives me a completely different perspective to look at the world through their eyes.

What are the key areas of focus at your daycare?

At Teri’s Tots, I focus on individual children and their social development, without stressing academics at such a young age. If I take them out somewhere, I teach them how to behave in that particular context. When children leave my program, they are comfortable in their own skin, and they know what’s expected of them in settings like stores and every situation. I stress manners, politeness, and kindness. I also allow space for kids to have bad days and need to stay in. Other days, when everybody is following directions and treating each other kindly, we get to go to the park. I have a schedule, but I build in a lot of flexibility. Meals and nap time are set in stone, but the rest can vary according to children’s needs and interests on any given day. I incorporate a lot of play and activities that help with social skills and motor skills development. I nurture children as individuals and tailor programming accordingly. For example, I have one child who is really physical, so we spend a lot of time outside, and I help her develop focus by spending incrementally longer amounts of time on activities. With the very young children, I do a lot of crawling around on the floor with them, and then I introduce developmentally appropriate activities such as puzzles, manipulatives, and sorting things.

Can you tell us a bit about your home environment?

Teri’s Tots is located in my two-story colonial home. The bedrooms are upstairs, and the kids have the whole run of the downstairs living areas. I have a playroom for them, and the dining room is a good space for the little kids while the older children are in the playroom with smaller pieces or more intricate activities. This is a home, and it’s a home I share with all the children in my program. It’s also their home where they can play.

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, email, or - we’re here to help.

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