Q&A with Ms. Mireya

What inspires you to care for young children?

A daycare can be a home away from home for children, and I’m happy to say that this is certainly true of my program! My daycare is a welcoming, educational, nurturing, and safe space where children grow and learn. I discovered my passion for childcare while working as a nanny, and after eight years of supporting families in this way, I became a parent myself. This is when I decided to open my own program – so I could stay home with my son but still provide support for families in my community. Having my own home daycare has been such a blessing! I believe in the power of positive reinforcement and love, and in the importance of allowing kids the freedom to follow their own curiosity. The best part of what I do is supporting and witnessing so many special moments and milestones.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

Young children should be given the freedom to learn by doing! My program is based on Maria Montessori’s theory of learning, where children are encouraged to learn through exploration and play. We do lots of fun activities – we love to sing, dance, color and create art, and explore educational toys and materials. Free play is a favorite time of day, where children get to cycle through the playroom without any set limitations. I love letting them explore but am always available for support – whether they are working on a puzzle or putting on a puppet show. A favorite event during the year are our community dinners, where all of the families in my program are invited to share in a meal together. This is such a wonderful opportunity to get to know each other and always leads to special connections! Many times, those connections with families last long after children leave my program - so many of my families keep in touch with me and come back to visit.

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

A home daycare should feel welcoming and accessible! My daycare space is beautifully designed just for kids – everything is within their reach so they can explore freely and independently. Children feel so proud when they accomplish things on their own! My home also has an outdoor space for fresh air, exercise, and play. Parents should know that I go above and beyond to support kids and families and that I am a nurturing presence for their child. My assistants and I are passionate about learning and growth for all children. We set limits when appropriate while allowing kids to explore their own curiosity every day. We also encourage soft skill development through play and interactions with others. Above all, we are dedicated to providing a safe, fun, and positive environment where children can thrive!

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.
