Q&A with Ms. Wendelmi

What inspires you to care for young children?

Every single child has their strengths and passions—their own spark of light. It’s the job of an educator and caregiver to help them find it. By creating a safe environment, my hope is that every child feels confident and inspired to explore their interests and chase their dreams. There is nothing more rewarding than teaching a child to see the vitality in themselves.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

Who says learning can’t be fun? At this age, children learn best through play. Their natural instinct is to be curious, and that is rewarded here. Usually, their favorite time of day is circle time. We also do a lot of group activities and work together on arts and crafts. It’s wonderful when all the children enjoy spending time together. Every so often, we even make slime! Having fun while learning something new helps children develop a love of education.

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

The children in my program become like family. I treat every child that comes into my home as though they are my own. After raising two daughters and working with children for several years, I’m very comfortable working with a range of age groups. In fact, one child that was in my care was only 8 weeks old. We developed a very special bond, and I was heartbroken when the family had to move out-of-state. (I think of this family often. They never stopped feeling like part of this community!) Having a daycare program is about more than just watching kids and keeping them out of trouble. It’s about investing in one another and approaching every individual with genuine care and love.

Every day, through engagement in the arts, our children learn to open their imagination, to dream just a little bigger and to strive every day to reach those dreams.

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.
