Q&A with Ms. Gersey

Tell us about your experience working with young children?

I worked as a teacher after university, and then I spent several years working in the healthcare industry. Now I have returned to what I was trained to do and what I love so much: working with children. Before I opened my program, I volunteered in a friend’s program and took some courses to refresh my knowledge and my certifications. Now that my program is open, I am reminded of how much fun I have with children. And they have fun with me, too! I have one parent who is always telling me that her daughter asks to come to my house on the weekends.

What are the key areas of focus at your daycare?

We follow a daily routine that can vary according to child age and interest. Typically, circle time follows breakfast, and during circle time, we have lots of learning routines. Children in my program learn numbers, letters, shapes, colors, animals, and lots of other things. We do this through images, motions, speaking, conversation, and repetition. After circle time, we often play outside and then move to independent work or free play leading up to lunch. The afternoons include napping, activities such as dramatic play and arts and crafts, dancing, and more play. I love to participate in activities with the kids. We dance together almost every day, and I show them how to do the stretches and exercises when we do those. I’m not just having fun with the kids, though. I take my job as their teacher very seriously, and children leave this program prepared for all that they will find in Pre-K.

Can you tell us a bit about your home environment?

The program takes place in my basement. I have a check-in area with space for coats and papers, the daily schedule, and communication for parents. We eat in the kitchen area, and boards in all the other areas contain helpful information - labels, vocabulary words, student work and photos of the kids who did the work. One large, open space contains two tables - one for activities and one for eating. In the other room I have equipment for dramatic play - including a pretend kitchen and other toys. There’s also a bookshelf with lots of books for reading and a quiet area for napping. In the corner, I have an inviting playroom with a colorful carpet, a comfortable yellow chair, and lots of toys.

Every day, through engagement in the arts, our children learn to open their imagination, to dream just a little bigger and to strive every day to reach those dreams.

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.
