Q&A with Ms. Brooke

What inspires you to care for young children?

When a child discovers something new for the first time, they just light up! That spark of wonder is something educators are able to keep alive. I’ve always wanted to become a teacher, and that led me to early education. After working in preschools and becoming a mother, I decided to open my own daycare so I could work closely with kids and help them find the things they are most passionate about.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

At this program, we have a healthy balance of fun and education! We try to spend as much time as possible outside. In our spacious backyard, kids can run around and enjoy the sunlight. We also have a very friendly dog who is a great companion for the kids. (Parents should know that she is well-trained, and that she especially loves kids!) It can be really special for children to learn to care for and connect with animals. My hope is that the children come to this program every day, energized and excited to learn from the earth and from one another. We do a lot of seasonal activities, which can be a great jumping off point for learning about other things. Because I’ve worked in preschools in the past, early childhood education is very much at the heart of this program.

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

This program is more than just a daycare: we are a community. The kids in my care will be treated as though they were my own children. They will ideally come to think of this as a safe place where they feel comfortable asking questions, expressing themselves, and trying new things. Similarly, parents and family members should feel welcome here! They should be able to come to me for advice or guidance if needed. As an experienced mother of two, I’m really looking forward to connecting with them and helping them have an even better relationship with their kids and their education. One of the best parts of having a daycare is communicating with family members, working through any potential hardships together, and sharing with them the ways that their kids shine!

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.
