Q&A with Ms. Olga

What inspires you to care for young children?

Young children really show the best parts of humanity. With some guidance and patience, they can be incredibly thoughtful, kind, and curious. They also have a way of bringing people together. When I came to this country 12 years ago, I started nannying for a few families, and I’ve been working with kids ever since. Through the years, there have been so many inspiring children and families that I’m proud to have worked with. As a mother, I have seen the community that forms between other parents. Hopefully, the families involved in this program can offer one another a similar support system.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

This is a place where kids can develop the skills that will prepare them for preschool while also having a lot of fun. Through music and arts and crafts, children will be encouraged to explore their creativity and hone their fine motor skills. They’ll also have the chance to make new friends with kids their own age, and they’ll learn to collaborate with others. In the large yard, the kids will get to use their energy and imaginations in a safe, protected environment. We also love to celebrate holidays together. Birthdays in particular are such a special chance to make sure each individual child knows just how special they are!

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

Parents who speak Spanish at home may take heart knowing that we share a language. Going to daycare for the first time can be a little intimidating for young children, but they will hopefully feel much more comfortable if they can also communicate in a language that feels most familiar to them. At this program, it’s all about helping the children adjust so that they can feel free to be themselves and truly thrive.

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 or email - we’re here to help.

We’re online Monday - Friday from 8am to 6pm Eastern.
