Q&A with Ms. Scarlet

Tell us about your experience working with young children?

I am an educator and mother of three children. I started working with children after I started my own family. I worked as an assistant in a daycare for three years. I’ve also looked to learn as much as I can about child development and what makes family child care programs work best for the children. I’ve taken many different courses and workshops such as, Development of Child Learning, Food for Children, and others. I’m interested not only in spending more time with my children and being home with them, but also helping my community and other children grow. I love a child’s ability to learn, along with what we can learn from them. They teach me new things just as much as I teach them. I also love the innocence and sweetness that each of them has.

What are the key areas of focus at your daycare?

In my program, I want to help the children grow up in an environment of respect, love, care, and equal opportunities for growth. I am highly attentive to their development in every area, from gross and fine motor skills to social, emotional, and cognitive. I want to do everything that I can to improve their chances of developing to their highest ability. For me, it is very important to see how each individual child learns so I can teach every one of them. Every day they learn something new. I like to convey how unique and serious my program is in development, even though we’re also having a ton of fun while doing so. I’m also confident that what the children do daily in my program strengthens the teaching that happens in the home. Some of my favorite activities to do with the children are crafts and painting, and working with blocks and geometric shapes. While we’re serious about learning, we’re also serious about having fun.

Can you tell us a bit about your home environment?

With high quality, age-appropriate toys, we provide a suitable space for the development of children. They love to play with the toys that are sneakily helping them develop motor and other types of skills in their brain. We strive to provide a welcoming environment, and one where there is ample rest and quiet space for the kids during the day, and areas for our variety of activities. Parents are easily able to feel comfortable leaving their children in my home under my care, which is an amazing reward of my position.

My daughter has been under the care of Ms. Scarlet for a month and it's been great. My 1 year old was already comfortable the 1st week which was surprising. She makes sure we are comfortable, that things are clearly communicated, and our daughter is cared properly. Couldn't ask for more.

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.
