Q&A with Ms. Phylicia

What inspires you to care for young children?

Children are always reaching new milestones. At this stage, every day brings new discoveries and skills and connections. There is no better feeling than watching a child gain confidence and be proud of what they’ve accomplished. As an older child, I often helped my mother take care of my siblings. I was always there to cheer them on and root for them. The kids in this program hopefully feel that same support. In fact, we even have achievement award parties sometimes to celebrate everyone’s growth!

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

At my program, we really emphasize collaboration. As long as they feel safe and supported, people are naturally so social. We strive to create an environment that makes kids want to come out of their shell. In the morning, we work on social skills through greetings and ice breakers that are fun and that encourage the kids to get to know each other. One of the kids’ favorite activities is usually gardening because they get to be outside and work with their hands while also working together to make something grow. It’s like magic.

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

The children’s comfort, safety, and overall happiness are the top priorities here. I strive to make the kids feel welcome, like this is their second home. In fact, the very first child who enrolled here had a lot of separation anxiety from her parents. They were worried that she would cry all the time and not be able to have a good day apart from them. But children sure can surprise you! With a little patience, special attention, and extra encouragement, she was doing just fine! By the second day, she was actively excited to come here and play with the other kids. When children feel like they can trust their environment and the people around them, they’re able to be themselves.

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.
