Q&A with Ms. Amaziles

What inspires you to care for young children?

Young children are at an exciting and crucial stage of their development: they’re finding some independence from home while needing some educational guidance. After raising my 16-year-old and working with pre-schoolers for four years now, I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with a new class of children full-time. The kids in my program will be treated as though they were my own! With care, love, and patience, they’ll be able to cultivate the skills they need for their futures.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

Everyone will be encouraged to bring their unique skills and interests to this program. Each child has a talent waiting to be discovered, something that they feel passionately about that might stick with them for the rest of their lives. At this daycare, they’ll have ample opportunity to try new things. We try to spend a lot of time outdoors, which might spark a love of nature. We also do a lot of singing, dancing, and arts and crafts projects. The kids have so much fun expressing themselves creatively! One of my personal passions is the Portuguese language, so I’m looking forward to sharing that with my students. At this age, new languages are much easier to learn, and kids tend to have a lot of fun finding new ways to communicate with one another.

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

Parents should know that their children will receive so much support at this program. The kids enrolled here will actually have two devoted caregivers looking after them (myself and my assistant). Individualized education can really make a difference to a child. Here, they will definitely get the attention they deserve. As a single mother, it was my dream to provide other parents with a place they could feel good about sending their kids to every day. The kids in my program will come to see this as their second home, a place where they are loved and where they can be themselves.

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.
