Q&A with Ms. Leila

What inspires you to care for young children?

Working as a daycare assistant in my cousin’s program got me interested in opening my own - and I’m so glad for that inspiration because I love working with kids every day. In my home, kids learn from me and from each other. I give children plenty of time to interact while guiding them through different activities during the day. Parents trust me because I will go out of my way to work through any behavior or learning issues – there is always a solution that will make a child feel comfortable and happy and I work hard to find those solutions! I’ve had my own home daycare for four years and am so excited to continue to grow my program.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

Kids thrive on structure, and we follow a set routine during the day. We go outside all the time and do lots of fresh air activities once the weather warms up. In the spring, we plant seeds in the backyard, and the excitement when those first little sprouts pop up is really something to see! Learning to care for the plants as they grow is a great learning experience too. We do lots of different activities here, and one thing we always find time in the day for is dancing. Moving to music really lifts everyone’s spirits, including mine! We have a great space with a large backyard and a playground unit for the kids to enjoy.

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

What's one thing prospective parents should know about your program? Home daycares have a much more personal feel! My program is a family environment and I really have a strong relationship with every child in my program. Building these relationships and getting to know kids is a huge part of what I do every day, and it’s so important! Kids feel safe in my home, learn a lot, and have fun every day – this is exactly what a childcare program should offer and I’m proud of what I do. I love seeing how much the kids learn and grow and watching them play together – so many wonderful friendships are formed here!

If children feel safe, they can take risks, ask questions, make mistakes, learn to trust, share their feelings, and grow.

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.
