Q&A with Ms. Yina

What inspires you to care for young children?

All children are special and deserve to have a safe and happy place to spend their days. In my home, children are loved and cared for, and I am here to help and support families. When my daughter was very young, we began looking for a daycare for her and became so discouraged - there weren’t any that met our expectations! This is when I decided to start my own program – a home daycare that parents could feel good about and where children would get lots of love and attention. And that’s exactly what I am still doing every day. I love being able to offer this kind of care to the families in my community.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

Young children should have plenty of time to play! In my program we are flexible, and there are lots of fun activities and things to do. We start the day with circle time, a special time for connection and sharing. Then we might sing songs together, dance, do crafts and special art projects, or have music time. The children really enjoy making crafts and are so proud when they finish their projects and get to surprise their families with their work! My program is small enough for lots of attention for every child, and the kids really enjoy playing with each other too. They have a lot of fun every day!

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

A daycare really becomes like a little family, especially when it is a home-based program! I treat every child like I treat my own children, with patience, kindness, and plenty of love. It makes me so happy to be able to offer a place where children can be safe, be around other littles ones their age, and have fun every day. Children and families really mean so much to me and the bonds we form are so special that it’s always bittersweet when the time comes for them to move on. I really think the goodbyes are the hardest part of what I do!

Anything you can teach in an indoor classroom can be taught outdoors, often in ways that are more enjoyable for children.

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.
