Q&A with Ms. Jianhua

What inspires you to care for young children?

Young children have endless creativity. When they see a circle on the page, it can be the letter O—but it can also be a stone, or a cookie, or even the sun! Every child has a unique perspective, and it’s so special to spend time looking at the world from their point of view. After raising two children of my own (currently 24 and 14 years old), it’s become clear that everyone brings their own strengths to the table, and it’s important to celebrate that. At my daycare, we aim to stimulate the imagination. Children can learn so much and have a lot of fun with this kind of encouragement.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

Every day of this program is full of love, fun, music, and good food. Of course, we have a well-rounded schedule of activities that the children love to engage with. They love going outside to play together. (It’s so beautiful to see them making up games and cooperating!) Painting and singing songs also provides a lovely outlet for their creativity and self-expression. One of the very best things that we do, though, is prepare food to share. Through food, we can learn so much about each other. We take turns telling stories about our favorite foods, which helps the kids listen to one another and connect.

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

The children in this daycare will have the benefit of a bilingual (Chinese and English) program. This might help kids coming from families that predominantly speak Chinese at home. Daycare can be a thrilling but intimidating new experience, and to have this shared language brings a lot of comfort for young children. Also, in today’s world, understanding two languages is a great skill and advantage. It’s never too early for kids to learn about other cultures and to share what’s special about their own. This is a program built on trust, respect, and love for one another.

If children feel safe, they can take risks, ask questions, make mistakes, learn to trust, share their feelings, and grow.

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.
