Q&A with Ms. Cryselle

What inspires you to care for young children?

A good daycare program is an important piece of the puzzle for many families, especially single parents. As a young mother, I really had to work things out on my own, and it wasn’t always easy! I want to help parents who are in that same situation and offer a support system that they can count on. I have lots of experience with kids – I’m a mother of two and worked as a monitor in the Boston Public Schools and in a personal security position at Boston Children’s Hospital. Having my own program and working with young people every day is a lifelong dream, one I am so happy to be fulfilling!

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

Children grow so much from being around other kids their age! My daycare environment is all about learning through play. We stay busy during the day – singing and dancing, working on arts & crafts, and getting creative in all sorts of ways. There is always the buzz of activity here, and we love to celebrate holidays and birthdays as a group, sharing our culture, traditions, and beliefs with friends and having fun! Another big highlight of my program are the plays we put on for families. Seeing the pride on the kids faces during these performances is priceless!

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

My mission is to support kids and parents right up until they reach school age and move on to kindergarten! I have a dedicated space just for my daycare program, and it is a place where kids can play and learn without interruptions. We are flexible here, and I’m always working with families to make their kids’ experience here the best it can be. One of my strengths is offering guidance and advice to parents when they need it, and encouragement to kids as they build confidence and grow. Kids feel respected, encouraged, and celebrated here!

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.
