Q&A with Ms. Nafissatou

What inspires you to care for young children?

Young children are so enthusiastic! They are able to take in new information and learn new skills so quickly. It’s a wonder to be around! There was one child in particular who I nannied for who seemed really interested in art at a young age. One day, we got paints and I taught him how to make a picture. He really enjoyed learning in this hands-on way, and he was so excited to show his family what he had created! It was a small moment of independence for him because he couldn’t believe he made it himself. We’re all about celebrating these steps at my program. There is nothing quite like that moment when a child realizes what they are capable of.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

Together, we can create the right environment for the kids to thrive in! Children learn best when they feel like they are in a safe space that is full of support and without judgment. At this program, they will be encouraged to be themselves. On their educational journey, they will be cheered on every step of the way. We have a variety of activities planned that will hopefully stimulate different parts of their developing minds. We do arts and crafts projects, as well as circle time for group activities like reading. For free play, there are a bunch of toys and games that they can use their imaginations on. Close by, there’s a local park where we will go to get their energy out and to enjoy the fresh air. This small, safe field trip also helps them feel like they are part of a larger community. It helps them get to know the neighborhood and to enjoy nature.

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

The children in my program will really be guided by someone with years of experience and a passion for caregiving. Parents should feel comfortable coming to me with any concerns or questions. We can work together as partners in this process. As a mother of 5-year-old twins, I’m looking forward to bonding with fellow parents. Before I decided to open my own daycare, I worked as a nanny in Manhattan for a few different families. It’s a great honor when a family trusts you and invites you into their home like that. There’s nothing more rewarding than getting to know the kids and watching them grow into the people they’re meant to be.

Every day, through engagement in the arts, our children learn to open their imagination, to dream just a little bigger and to strive every day to reach those dreams.

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.
