Q&A with Ms. Vianka

What inspires you to care for young children?

Children have so much ahead of them! Every day brings discovery. At this age, they’re learning so much about the world and also about themselves. There’s nothing quite like introducing a kid to a story or a song that they really, genuinely love. It could mean you have a writer or a musician on your hands! With a little patience and guidance, there’s no telling what can happen, and that surprise is half the fun of working with children. Caregiving comes really naturally to me, personally. I’ve always been a nurturing person. I started working with the elderly, but after having four kids of my own (ages 10, 7, 2, and 7 months!), I realized how energizing it is to spend time nourishing the next generation.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

The kids in this daycare will learn so much through a play-based program. Children are so engaged when they get to use all their senses and let their imaginations run a little wild. We do a ton of arts and crafts here. It’s usually everyone’s favorite! These projects are such a perfect way for us to collaborate and be present together while also letting the children express themselves and their unique creativity! This is also a special program because we do language immersion. The kids will have the opportunity to pick up a little Spanish during our days together. It’s incredible to be able to share this language with them, and it hopefully inspires a lifelong love of learning about other languages and cultures. No matter what we do, though, every day, the children will have fun while experiencing new things and gathering new skills that will prepare them for their futures.

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

Everyone will be welcomed here with open arms, regardless of any special needs or challenges. Our differences are what make us unique, and it’s really important for every child to feel celebrated for who they are. Parents might be glad to know that I have worked with children with special needs before, and I’m happy to have them in my program! From past experience, I know this can put a lot of pressure on the families, but parents should know that we’re in this together. Their kids will be given the care, attention, and patience they need to thrive, and parents should feel supported, too.

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.
