Q&A with Ms. Rose

What inspires you to care for young children?

A good daycare program benefits kids in so many ways! I am a licensed teacher with a degree in education, and I taught special needs children for over 25 years. My son (who is now a teenager) inspired me to open my own daycare – I wanted to stay home with him and continue doing the work I love – teaching kids! Because of my background and experience, I know how to create a curriculum for my home program that really gives kids a boost and makes learning fun and enjoyable.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

Kids need balance in their days and their lives. My program has a schedule, but there is plenty of time for free play in the day and lots of different toys to choose and learn from. We spend a lot of time outside, too! I read to the kids every day during circle time – they love to listen to stories and it’s a great way to show them different perspectives. Another highlight of the day is lunchtime – I enjoy cooking and always serve healthy food with plenty of kid appeal! We do special seasonal activities and have so much fun together on holidays - and every day!

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

Daycare programs give kids a place to grow while supporting their families. I am flexible, and always willing to work with parents to make their children’s lives happier and theirs easier. My home is kid-friendly and fun, with lots of toys that encourage learning and a huge backyard to play in. I work hard to teach kids about inclusion, sharing, and getting along with others. Encouraging everyone to play together and helping them work through issues that come up is a big part of what I do every day, and the result is that kids feel a sense of belonging – like they are part of a winning team! It makes me so proud to see how much the kids grow during their time here.

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.
