Q&A with Ms. Mackendia

What inspires you to care for young children?

Children are so eager to explore their expanding world. To them, every day brings something new. With good-hearted guidance, they come to every new person and experience with an open mind. At this program, we do not discriminate against anyone, no matter their race, religion, political beliefs, marital status, sexual orientation, or disability. In my experience, children at this age are really able to understand this. They have an abundance of generosity and acceptance to share that gives me hope about humanity.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

Every child in my program makes it special. While the children in my program are set up for success in school, they are also encouraged to explore their interests, so our activities can vary. Usually, most kids look forward to our more active activities, like singing and dancing and arts-and-crafts. They’re able to funnel their bursts of energy into a task that lets them express themselves. I strive to provide them with lots of exciting projects, so they stay engaged and eager to get started on something new. (The change of seasons and annual holidays are a great opportunity for this.) It’s a beautiful thing to see what they gravitate towards. At my daycare, we celebrate the things that make us unique.

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

At this age, individualized attention means the world to a child. To know that someone is listening to and looking out for them specifically boosts their confidence so much. Plus, every kid needs something different when it comes to their education. What works for one child might not necessarily click with another. They each hit their milestones at different times (and it’s so rewarding when they do). My program strives to set each child up for success in pre-K and kindergarten by taking their unique interests, ages, and learning styles into consideration. A big part of what makes this individualization possible is that I work with an assistant, Marie, to provide the best possible experience for every kid. Two sets of eyes are better than one! The children in my program will be looked after by two dedicated caregivers.

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 or email - we’re here to help.

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