Q&A with Ms. Kaitlyn

Tell us about your experience working with young children?

I have been around children my whole life! I started babysitting when I was 12 years old and as I grew older and had my own child, I babysat more and more for single mothers. After many years working in business, I decided to combine my love of children with my business skills. I started taking courses and learning about program planning and learning and development in children. I loved it! While I worked for a little while in a daycare center, I decided to open my own program because my own son went to a family child care program growing up. The provider was so helpful to me and set up a loving environment for my son, so I felt very comfortable. I aim to give that same comfort to parents who want their child in a smaller home setting for child care. Not only that, but development is one of the most important aspects of my program too. I love seeing how quickly children learn and helping them grow is a joy for me.

What are the key areas of focus at your daycare?

In a safe and loving space, the children get high quality care and everything they need to grow. I love the idea that the kids can grow together in this family environment. The key factors in my program are safety, a caring environment, ensuring growth and development, and having a ton of fun. While I love every activity with the kids, my favorites are ones that involve movement, hands-on elements, or our imagination. I like yoga, dancing, or just getting the kids up and doing things they may not normally do. We always like pretending and playing dress up too. For developing their motor skills, hands-on activities like building with blocks are very fun. I want parents to feel that we can be a team in their child’s journey of growth and development. In order to do this effectively, I encourage parents to contact me at any time. I also have a very tech-savvy way of making sure daily activities and progress are being communicated!

Can you tell us a bit about your home environment?

I want to be cognizant of children that may be sensitive to bright colors, so my home is a mixture of cooler tones and vibrant colors. Overall, I have created a relaxing and safe atmosphere for the kids. I have high quality age appropriate toys, plus different areas for different activities. We have a quiet space, a space for building blocks and motor skill activities, a dramatic play area, arts and crafts area, circle time area, a music center, and a library. We also have a large outdoor space that has a section exclusively for the kids. Because where I live is more rural than urban, we’ve incorporated nature into the design of the home as well as into our activities. Children of every age can get involved with some gardening and learn so much while doing so.

Teaching is not about answering questions but about raising questions – opening doors for them in places that they could not imagine.

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.
