Q&A with Ms. Aesha

What inspires you to care for young children?

Working with kids brings so many rewards. I get so much out of helping children learn and grow – and love seeing their personalities emerge as they go about their days. Every child is unique in their own way and brings something special to our little community – and they are all valued here. Growing up, I watched my nieces and nephews all the time and learned a lot about how to care for kids at a young age. I now have a six-year-old daughter of my own and have been running my own daycare program for over ten years!

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

A daycare program should be well rounded. In my Spanish immersion program we sing, dance, do educational worksheets, have fun with arts & crafts, and go on lots of little adventures. The kids get a lot out of our curriculum – they love to learn and I love finding ways to make learning fun! I also like to connect kids with our community - every year I have artists visit who teach the kids drumming, and we take lots of field trips together. We go to the library once a week for story time, and also visit indoor playgrounds, museums, parks, and the aquarium. Kids learn in so many different ways here!

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

My daycare is a community, and I will always help any member of that community in any way I can. If a family needs additional childcare, help with grocery shopping, or assistance finding housing – I am always available to help or connect them with the right people or resources. My daycare families trust me, and I value that trust! I focus a lot on health in my program - we eat mostly vegan foods, I teach the kids how to juice their own fruits and veggies, and we talk a lot about the importance of eating nourishing foods. Kids come away from my program with so many important life skills, and this makes me so happy!

If the child is not learning the way you are teaching, then you must teach in the way the child learns.

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.
