Q&A with Ms. Lakeisha

What inspires you to care for young children?

Children learn best when they are having fun. Planning exciting activities that I know kids will love and learn from is a real passion for me. Every child is so unique, and I offer many different types of activities that vary from week to week. There is always something to get excited about and dive into in my program! Arts & crafts, reading, and singing and dancing all bring joy to the children’s hearts and to mine. I’ve wanted to be a teacher from a young age - my first ‘students’ were my sisters, in a classroom I would set up for them in our home after school. Little did I know how much practice I was getting for my future career!

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

Children work best with routines, but it’s important to change things up within that routine to keep them interested – this is how they learn and grow! My home daycare focuses on a different theme each month, and we zero in on something specific every week to keep things fresh and fun. The themes often reflect the world around us. For example, in the month of April we focused on Spring. The kids loved learning about plants and flowers the first week, bugs the second, animals the third, and weather in the fourth. There’s nothing I love more than finding a book or a song that fits right in with what we are learning about! We always begin our day with circle time, followed by a fun, exciting activity. After that, there’s lots of play - arts & crafts, singing, and dancing. Our days are full of activity and joy.

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

Children need to feel supported and loved, and I treat every child in my care just like I treat my own daughter. I often have families tell me that their child wakes up in the morning ready and excited to go to school, and that they notice how happy they are when they come back home in the afternoon. Our space is decorated in a way that is bright, beautiful, and joyful. A favorite spot of mine and the kids is the cozy book corner. They love seeing the new books I put out and how they relate to our monthly theme. It’s so much fun to watch them make those connections! After so many years taking care of children, parents know they can come to me for guidance and support and that I’m always ready to help.

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.
