Q&A with Ms. Andrea

What inspires you to care for young children?

Taking care of children can only be done well if your heart is truly invested! I have been working in childcare for almost twenty years, and in that time, I’ve learned how to deliver a high quality of service to kids and their families. I do this by communicating and sharing information with families and giving children plenty of attention and one-on-one time. I have an assistant who helps make that happen, and we are a great team! I started my own daycare while searching for a place for my own child to attend. I just couldn’t find one that met my high standards for care, so I started one that does. As a single mother, I have always worked hard to provide a loving and caring environment for my own children, and I’m so proud to offer that same thing for children in my community.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

Every child is so unique, and it’s important to make sure there is something to get involved in and enjoy no matter what a child’s interests may be. My program is play based, with lots of choices. Some children might prefer to work on art projects, while others enjoy sensory activities or imaginary play – so we offer many different options for interacting and learning! The one thing we do as a group every day, so long as the weather cooperates, is get outside for some fresh air and time in nature. My program is bilingual – I speak Portuguese as well as English during the day. The children love learning a whole new way to communicate – it’s so exciting to them! I really enjoy thinking up projects and activities that line up with the seasons or with holidays. In my program, every day is an opportunity to learn something new.

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

Outside time really makes kids happier and healthier! My home has a large backyard with lots of trees, and we get out into nature as much as we can to observe and enjoy the outdoors. My neighborhood is safe and quiet, with very little traffic – it’s such a peaceful place to be and the kids really appreciate that! Parents should know that I have a very personal connection with all my families and work hard to keep the lines of communication open at all times. I even have an app that allows me to send updates throughout the day! My assistant and I really put in the effort to form strong connections with children through lots of patience, care, and understanding. We both truly love what we do!

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.
