Q&A with Ms. Gabriella

What inspires you to care for young children?

Young children approach the world with an open heart. Their excitement about even the littlest things is so wonderful to see. Working with children really encourages you to see things from a whole other perspective. Both my 12-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son have taught me a lot about life. Even when they’re little, kids have so much to teach one another, and so much to teach us as well! In creating this program, I hoped to offer the children in my neighborhood a place where they would be heard and understood, a place where they would be able to make new friends. My children don’t have a lot of family living nearby who are their own age. It’s a beautiful thing, to be able to create an environment where children can meet, connect, and have fun playing together. The kids in this program will know what it’s like to be part of a loving family.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

At my program, every experience can be turned into a learning moment. Children are so observant and curious. They can absorb new things, like another language for instance, so much more naturally than adults typically can. At every turn, we try to engage their minds and get their creative juices flowing. For instance, we do a lot of reading together. The kids just love story time! But I take it one step further: after the book is done, we’ll do an activity or art project based on what we’ve just read. It’s a great way to keep the kids thinking about what they’ve learned. Plus, they really appreciate the invitation to churn out their own creativity and self-expression.

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

All children will be welcomed here with open arms. At my program, we cultivate an environment of open-mindedness, support, and respect. At a young age, it’s really important for kids to know that there is so much we can teach one another. For example, since I also speak Portuguese and Spanish, I like to incorporate this into my program. If there are students who speak these languages at home, it might make them feel more comfortable adjusting to this new space. If there are students who speak other languages and want to share that with us, that’s incredible! The best learning experiences come out of this kind of sharing across cultures. We celebrate our differences as strengths at this program. I also have a lot of personal experience working with children who have special needs. My son is autistic, and caring for him has taught me a lot about cues, early indicators, and useful tools for working with special needs. I’d love to be able to help fellow parents navigate this difficult situation. In that way, this is more than a daycare. It’s a support network, a community devoted to the children.

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.
