Here’s the inside scoop from other parents that have worked with Mr. Andy.

In a short amount of time, Mr. Andy has proven to be an outstanding caregiver and support to our family as we raise our 14 month old son. His approach is kind, courteous, thoughtful. He is incredibly patient and a great teacher. I love that the kids have organized time for activity and play. Within the first week, my son was talking, interacting, and laughing more at home. Mr. Andy has already helped my son see the world in a new way that builds structure and curiosity. In a short time, my baby boy is already hitting so many milestones - like eating at the table, transitioning from the bottle to sippy cup, saying words, learning to clean up and learning to play with others. At the end of the day, Mr. Andy always takes time to share all that went on for the day, and it always feels so nice to feel like I didn't miss out on all the little things. As first time parents, it has been so helpful to learn from Mr. Andy's expertise. He is so good with kids and a very intuitive caregiver. It feels so good to know that my son is so happy, healthy, and well taken care of with such a great role model and friend all day. Mr. Andy's has truly been a blessing and a trusted extension of our family. It is so nice to feel so supported as we take this parenthood journey. I would highly recommend this daycare to any parent!

Our son transfered to Andi’s Child Care a few months ago, and we couldn’t be any happier. Putting aside the great location, the best part has been Andy’s partnership in raising our son. He provides very thorough updates on his development and progress, almost on a daily basis. In this way, we feel very involved and don’t feel like we’re missing out on his growth when he’s away from us - also making it much easier to track and understand his progress when he comes home. Andy also provides helpful tips and tricks when our son is sick, or not behaving normally, offering suggestions, ideas and alternatives perspectives we hadn’t considered before. We’ve also noticed that our son has learned new skills much more quickly than we had expected, and attribute that to interactions with other kids, and surely many of Andy’s teachings and activities, such as music, drawing, dancing or communicating in new ways. Aside from his warm, and intuitive caregiving for our son, I’ve found him to be professional, prompt and very reliable with all other aspects of our communications. I’m very satisfied with Andi’s Child Care, and hope that we can continue relying on them for our child care needs for these next few critical years of our son’s growth and development. Highly recommended!

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.
