Working with kids is just what I love to do, and it has been since my very first babysitting job, when I was fifteen! After twenty-five years working in daycare and preschool settings, I am so excited to have my own program and to be completing a teaching degree this year. I have six adult children that I’m so proud of – and I really believe in building children up to be the best they can be. I do this with all the little ones in my life, because I want kids to feel cared for and confident so they can learn and grow.
My program is a blended Montessori program, and my home is a place where there is lots of love and lots of learning! We have a set schedule each day, and the kids take part in arts & crafts, singing, dancing, and educational worksheets. Listening to stories and books is a favorite part of the day,, and I always look forward to gathering at circle – a special time where I teach and we share with each other. Special activities we do here are projects around the changing seasons, holiday gatherings and crafts, and birthday celebrations.
A good daycare program sets a child up for success in elementary school! My daycare kids usually stay with me until kindergarten, and I really get to know each child while they are with me. I work with parents as a partner, and always communicate if a child seems to need help or is having trouble in any way in our program or with their own development. I have worked with many parents in the past and found a way to solve problems together or to find the support a child needed within our community. Being part of so many children’s lives really means a lot to me.

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.

There are 2 home daycares in Fordham Heights. Most care for 6 to 10 children and take both infants and toddlers. All home daycares are licensed by the Office of Children and Family Services, just like preschool centers.

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.
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.
