Q&A with Ms. Kendra

Tell us about your experience working with young children?

I have a bachelor’s degree in medicine, and I worked as a doctor in the Dominican Republic. I have always loved helping people and caring for people, but I never thought I would end up working with kids other than my own. Three years ago, I started working as a behavioral therapist, specifically helping kids with autism and related disorders, and I fell in love with it. I have two kids, and I’m expecting another one. I know the challenges that come with finding the right fit for my own kids, and I have the professional skills to offer a lot of what they’re not getting in their current daycare settings. I know there are other parents who have difficulty sending their kids to daycare, and I want to help solve that problem. I want to be the person who makes the difference.

What are the key areas of focus at your daycare?

I believe that kids learn best through play, so Rock Stars Family Child Care is based on a creative curriculum that involves a lot more play than instructor-led activities. A schedule guides us, and days include free play, circle time, arts and crafts, snacks and lunch, outdoor play, dramatic play, sensory play, so much play and creativity! I also like to include music and movement. Music is infused throughout the day. For example, we have goodbye songs that help us end the day in a community setting at closing circle.

Can you tell us a bit about your home environment?

Rock Stars Family Child Care takes place in my home, where I have two rooms designated for the program – for playing and for circle time. We use my dining room for meal time and for the messiest arts and crafts, and we use the playroom for most play-based activities. I also have a large outdoor space that allows kids to move and be social and imaginative in the fresh air!

It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.

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.
