Q&A with Ms. Manuela

What inspires you to care for young children?

Young children see the world in such an open-minded and inspiring way, and they encourage everyone around them to share that good energy. Their natural curiosity and their desire to connect with one another is beautiful. No matter how many years I spend caregiving or working in preschools, it’s always refreshing. I’ve always been the person who took care of all the kids in my family, so it just comes naturally.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

The children in my program are encouraged to find joy in learning every day. Through music and arts and crafts, they practice their motor skills, exercise their creativity, and have a chance to express themselves. It’s so vital for kids to feel both a sense of community and also like they are seen as individuals! One example of the way we do this is celebrations. Together, we honor holidays and have a good time learning the stories and traditions behind them. But we also never miss a birthday! Every child deserves to experience those moments when they feel extra special! Everyone has their own strengths and talents that they bring to the table, and the kids in my daycare are encouraged to do that here. Another thing that sets my program apart is that I’m trilingual (in Portuguese, Spanish, and English) and will be implementing languages into our program. Learning a new language among friends and peers can be a really fun and exciting experience!

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

Family is everything. When a child comes into this program, they’ll be treated like part of the family—and so will their parents! We’re all in this together, because we’re all working towards a common goal: the safety, happiness, and success of the kids! When I came to the United States with my three sons, I was lucky to find a community that welcomed me with open arms. I wanted to give back, to create a space where I could provide other kids a wonderful early education. Parents should know that this daycare is more than just a job: it’s my dream. After many years of hard work and saving, that dream is a reality. It’s my goal to give that feeling of belonging and warmth to other local families.

If children feel safe, they can take risks, ask questions, make mistakes, learn to trust, share their feelings, and grow.

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.
