Q&A with Ms. Fateima

What inspires you to care for young children?

Childcare has been part of my life for as long as I can remember – my mother was a childcare provider, so I grew up around kids of all ages! My program is friendly and I go out of my way to work with parents so that there is a strong connection between the home and my daycare program. The environment here is one where children are learning every day in lots of different ways. This is what I love most about what I do – encouraging children and being part of their growth.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

It’s so important to be flexible when working with young children! My program is child led - we follow the interests of the kids and change things up when it feels right. Playing, singing, spending time outdoors, dancing, and working on arts & crafts are some of the ways in which we spend our days here. There are lots of opportunities for play - as a group or independently - and they learn so much this way! We have lots of fun here, but safety is a high priority too - toys are always age appropriate and safe, and we have fire drills that the kids participate in – we want to be prepared for anything and keep everyone safe and happy at all times.

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

Working as a daycare provider is all about supporting families in the community! Parents and caregivers become part of my daycare program, just like their kids do. They know I can be trusted to care for their children like they are my own. Over the years I have helped families work through all kinds of situations – from potty training to behavior challenges. I do this with lots of encouragement, consistency, and patience – a can’t lose combination! When a child and their family are happy, I’m happy too! I’m proud to provide high-quality care that is flexible, affordable, and offers support to families as they raise their children.

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.
