Q&A with Ms. Janice

Tell us about your experience working with young children?

I have many years of experience taking care of young children. Previously I worked in a center, and most recently, I’ve been taking care of my granddaughter at home. I realized that while I was home with her, I could use my skills and experience to benefit other families as well. Now I operate Pretty Little Feet Daycare and Nursery from my home. Everything is fun for me as long as it benefits the kids. I spend most of the day on the floor, interacting with them. We play games and do activities together. I love my babies. They really give me so much joy and fun! I keep them safe, and they keep me young.

What are the key areas of focus at your daycare?

This is an intimate daycare program where I focus on the safety and well-being of every child here. I treat all the children as if they’re my own. When I only have babies, the schedule follows their needs. They sleep and eat and get changed as needed. The rest of the day we sing sing sing, read read read, and play play play. In the mornings, I gather everyone for circle time, and we clap and smile together. I also take them for walks outside every day that the weather is good. As babies age, I engage them in activities and with toys that aid their development. For example, right now I have a child who is 11 months old, and I’m teaching her how to color. I guide her hands through holding crayons and moving them on paper. When toddlers are enrolled in my program, they have more of a schedule. That still includes lots of singing, reading, and playing, but they also have some scheduled activities. They have sensory experiences, and they use toys that help them develop fine and gross motor skills. During their circle time, we have routines and songs to greet each other, practice ABCS and counting, and learn topics like shapes and colors.

Can you tell us a bit about your home environment?

Pretty Little Feet Daycare and Nursery takes place in a designated section of my basement. I have a library area, a table for work and eating, an activity area, a corner for cribs and naps, and a changing area. There is also a separate space where I prepare food and clean up. It’s small and tidy; I can see what everyone is doing all the time. We have lots of options for getting outside. I have a backyard that is surrounded by a fence and is approved for outdoor play. I live on a safe, quiet street, so sometimes we also go for walks in the neighborhood.

If the child is not learning the way you are teaching, then you must teach in the way the child learns.

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.
