Q&A with Ms. Giselle

What inspires you to care for young children?

Every child brings their own little light to the world. Working with such a small group in my own home means that I can take the time to discover that light, and to nurture it! I first started working with children as a substitute, and it did not take long for me to realize that I wanted to start my own program. Inspiring little ones to learn, helping them grow, and getting them ready to go out into the world brings me such joy. The relationships and partnerships that bloom with caregivers and families make what I do even more meaningful and special.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

In a child-care setting, routines are so important. In my program, children know what to expect when they walk through the front door, and what kind of schedule we will follow as we go about our day. I believe that when a child feels safe and secure, that child is ready to learn! Of course, we have a whole lot of fun too! My home is bright and joyful, and there are plenty of arts and crafts, singing, and dancing built into the day. Story time is a highlight for the children, and for me. The bookshelves in my home cover almost an entire wall, and the children just love browsing the shelves to see what is new and exciting and what we might like to read next!

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

I believe that all children deserve the chance to learn! My house is friendly and welcoming to all, and I take great pride in preparing children to take the next step into their first school experience. We do plenty of playing throughout the day - the children love creative time, or time spent zooming around in child-sized ‘cars’ in my grassy yard. But we learn a lot too! There are so many exciting things to discover, and parents are sometimes surprised when their child shares how much they know about social studies, or the weather, or even how to take care of a garden. I love watching children’s light up when they learn something new!

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.
