Q&A with Ms. Ronique

Tell us about your experience working with young children?

With four children of my own, I know how challenging it is to find a local daycare you love and trust. I have worked in the education and mental health fields since the age of 14, and decided to give back to my community by opening a daycare of my own. I care for children and families like they are my own, and I am very flexible and happy to help with any needs that may arise—from special circumstances and extra hours to meals—my husband is even licensed to drive a van and can assist with transportation. Every child is welcomed in my home, regardless of race, religion, or gender. I believe our community is better when we work together!

What are the key areas of focus at your daycare?

My program is geared toward helping children in every step of their learning process, and is very flexible and ready to adapt to the individual needs and preferences of children and parents. I work hard to ensure every child feels safe, accepted, and supported in my care so that they can thrive in all they do. From dramatic play to reading to structured learning activities, every activity children participate in with me helps them on their way to a successful future. I am proud to mold them into eager and able students but also strong and morally sound members of their community.

Can you tell us a bit about your home environment?

My home is located across the street from the Neponset river trail, which allows for frequent walks and outdoor exploration. I also have a front and back yard with plenty of room to play and work on motor skills like crawling, walking, and jumping. Inside, one entire floor of my home is dedicated to the daycare, and features an art center, dramatic play area, chalk wall, library space, and infant area.

Rates & Openings

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.
