Q&A with Ms. Dawn

What inspires you to care for young children?

A nurturing environment is so important for children. This is something I am really passionate about – creating a place where children are able to thrive and succeed. I work hard every day to make sure that happens! Parents and caregivers are an important part of the puzzle too - when we communicate and work together it makes for happier children and families! I discovered how much I enjoyed caring for children at a young age, when one of my nieces moved into my home and I got to help take care of her. That was really the beginning of it all - when I discovered that teaching children and helping them succeed is something I’m good at and that brings me a lot of joy.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

Kids are so full of energy and so ready to discover new things! My daycare follows a daily schedule that is full of activity and learning – we are always busy! We sing, dance, work on art projects, celebrate the seasons, and have fun exploring outdoors. That’s not to say there isn’t time for rest and quiet time when needed, but we really have a lot of fun every day, and it just lifts me up to see how happy and excited the children are when they arrive in the morning ready to play and learn. Seeing their smiling faces and greeting them is a great way to start each day. We celebrate holidays and special occasions in my program, but we enjoy the day-to-day moments too - like having fun in the kitchen preparing delicious snacks together. I’m so grateful to be part of so many special moments and memories!

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

My daycare space is warm and welcoming. The indoor area is very open and inviting, with plenty of room for all the fun activities we do together during the day. The backyard is fenced in, with a swing set and slide that are perfect for getting exercise and fresh air while socializing and having fun. Of course, feeling at home is about more than just the house or space we are in – children feel at home in my program because they are heard, accepted, and encouraged to express their own unique personalities. This is what makes our little family such a happy and positive one, and what makes kids want to be here, day after day!

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, email, or - we’re here to help.

We’re online Monday - Friday from 8am to 6pm Eastern.
