Q&A with Ms. Ayesha

What inspires you to care for young children?

I love being around little ones, and always volunteered in my own kid’s classrooms. That’s how I fell in love with the Montessori approach to learning and decided to train to be a Montessori educator! Working in this type of school setting has been so inspiring - but my true dream has always been to open my own program. Creating a wonderful place for kids to learn and encouraging them every day makes me so happy. I approach everything I do with a positive mindset and the kids in my program really feel that and benefit from the positive environment here.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

The Montessori approach is great for preschool kids, and I use it in my program in many ways - following the interests of the kids, offering lots of hands-on activities, and learning from nature, the changing seasons, and the outdoors. Our space gives kids the chance to explore materials and activities independently! I interact with the kids and guide them as they play, and I love to see their personalities emerge as the days go by. Having a smaller program means I can spend one-on-one time with each child and really figure out how they learn and what they like to do - then shape the program around that.

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

Kids learn through doing! Our daycare space is full of hands-on materials that the kids can use to learn on their own, with guidance from me. We take our classroom outside into my big backyard as much as possible and even plot and plant a garden together in the spring! I have seen firsthand that when kids are doing something they are interested in, they learn more – so while we do have a daily schedule, it follows the children’s interests. This is fun for the kids, gets them engaged, and results in learning experiences that stick with them for life!

''If teaching is to be effective with young children, it must assist them to advance on the way to independence.'' ''Do not tell them how to do it. Show them how to do it and do not say a word. If you tell them they will watch your lips move. If you show them, they will want to do it themselves.''

~ Maria Montessori

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.
