Q&A with Ms. Guerline

What inspires you to care for young children?

Every day is a new learning experience for a young child. It is an honor to be there for them as they learn to navigate the world. Their eyes just light up when they find something they genuinely care about! Children are naturally so open to new experiences, and you never know when something you say is going to inspire something in them. Teaching children has been one of the great joys of my life. I have a background in child care development, and I have experience working with Catholic charities that assist children in need. After raising three children of my own, I opened my own daycare program because every child deserves a patient, understanding environment to learn and grow.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

We will do everything we can to put these kids on the path to success. Many of the children in my program graduate straight into kindergarten because we work on some basic educational steps. But we also have a ton of fun here with arts and crafts projects (especially around the seasons) and music and dance. The kids also love the time we set aside for free play, both indoors and outdoors. Even this time is a valuable teaching moment: the kids get to build their social skills, learn from each other, and use their imaginations.

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

When a child comes to my program, their family gets a whole support network. The children in my program are treated like family, and parents should feel that same love and support. Whenever a parent (especially a new parent!) has a question, they are more than welcome to ask for my help. As a parent myself, I am always thrilled to share tips and tricks with others. Having conversations with families also helps make sure we are on the same page and working on the same things. Once I had a child in my care who was having difficulty eating on his own. Together, we worked on his fine motor skills, and he was able to use a spoon by himself in no time! It’s the small victories that matter a lot at this stage, and a trusting and comfortable relationship between all of us makes those triumphs possible.

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.
