Q&A with Ms. Sinead

What inspires you to care for young children?

Every child has their own story to tell. Every child comes with their own interests and needs. My youngest sister was born with Down syndrome. Yes, this means she faced challenges, but she also has so much to offer. When I was a teenager, I would go with her to preschool whenever I had a chance. It was then that I first fell in love with caring for others. Working with a small group of kids means each one has the chance to be seen and heard. Giving a child that specialized attention is one of the greatest, most rewarding things a person can do. Being a small part of their lives at this very important stage is so exciting. You can see their potential, and you can watch them grow!

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

Children respond well to a balance of education and play. In my program, we create a strong foundation for their next steps. In addition to learning to spell their names, for example, and doing a few kindergarten prep worksheets, there is plenty of opportunity for creativity and exploration. The kids work on gross motor skills through outdoor free play and arts and crafts projects. They improve their social skills with circle time and learning to take turns. We even have a few special activities that the kids always enjoy, like the occasional Pizza Friday or building snowmen in the winter or baking. We even have a pajama day! All these activities work together to help make the children feel more knowledgeable about the world and more comfortable expressing themselves.

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

Family—both biological and chosen—is such a special thing. At this program, we believe that anything is possible with a supportive, loving family that’s got your back. In fact, my own daughter is also a certified childcare professional, and we run our daycare together. A passion for working with children just runs in the family! Every single child that walks through these doors becomes a part of our strong community. It’s a community that expands beyond this house, too. We believe that it’s vital to bond not just with the children but with their parents and guardians well. Through open communication, we can reach our shared goal: ensuring these kids are happy, healthy, and reaching their full potential.

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.
