Q&A with Ms. Amanda

What inspires you to care for young children?

For each child, there is a moment (or moments) when they find something that they love. Of course, it’s different for every individual. For some, it’s dance or making music. For others, it’s arts and crafts projects or story time. The moment of discovery and the pure joy that comes with it is like nothing else in this life. Day care is so special because these moments of awe happen often. At this age, children have such a wonderful capacity for taking in new things and learning from one another.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

The most special thing about my program is the children in it! While we do have structured activities (kindergarten prep sheets, for example, and arts and crafts to promote self-expression and fine motor development), the ages and interests of the children play a big part in my planning. Children are so dynamic, and they are still finding their first passions. That’s why free play is so popular among the kids. It’s a special time when they get to explore and pursue the things they care about. Their curiosity will be encouraged here. We will even do local field trips once travel restrictions are more manageable (and depending on the comfort level of each family).

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

The children that come into this program will be looked after by someone with experience and enthusiasm in equal measure. Caring for children is the most rewarding work a person can do, and that’s why I’ve dedicated most of my life to it. After decades of babysitting, nannying, and raising two children of my own, I worked for a parenting support program, specializing in child development. There was even a family that privately employed me from the time their children were infants through their early years at school. To this day, they tell me how great an impact I had on their children’s learning, and we have become close friends.) It all just goes to show that once children step into your life, they are the number one priority!

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.
