Q&A with Ms. Chelsea

What inspires you to care for young children?

All young children have so much potential. Figuring out what each individual needs from their education and caregiver to untap that potential is like a puzzle, and it keeps every day different and engaging. Looking after kids is a lifelong passion of mine. It comes very naturally, because growing up, I would always help take care of my younger siblings. One of my sisters is actually severely dyslexic and struggled at school. Once I stepped in as her tutor, we spent a lot of time together getting her schoolwork done. Our one-on-one sessions were a fun way to learn that took away some of the pressure and frustrations that come from having a learning disability. It was inspiring to see her progress. Children who come to my daycare will find this same patience, understanding, and dedication to their education.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

The kids will look forward to coming here! At this program, we strive to strike the perfect balance of fun and education. Through arts and crafts and reading time, the kids get great exposure to different forms of creativity. They can experiment with different ways to express themselves, which is always exciting. We also try to spend as much time as possible outside. The fresh air and sunshine are really good for the kids, especially in this technology-obsessed age. It’s refreshing to see how much fun they have simply being together, using their imaginations, and playing games in the grass! In the spacious backyard, we will also have a little bike riding area, so kids can get their energy out in a safe and supervised environment.

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

Parents should know that I’m here for them. By enrolling their children in this program, they’re also joining an awesome support network. One of the major reasons I decided to start my own daycare is because after having my youngest child (a 7-month-old baby boy), I was unable to find a daycare with the early drop-off hours I needed. If parenthood has taught me anything, it’s that we’re never alone in our questions or our needs. Hopefully, this program is able to service a community whose needs weren’t previously being met. As a mother, former nanny, and lifelong caregiver, I’ve also picked up a few tools along the way, and I’m eager to share what I’ve learned with other families. My door is always open to parents who need advice or guidance, or who just want to connect.

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 or email - we’re here to help.

We’re online Monday - Friday from 8am to 6pm Eastern.
