Q&A with Ms. Socorro

What inspires you to care for young children?

Being around children every day is so much fun! I stumbled upon my career by accident – I’d been working with older children in New York City when I found myself in a toddler classroom one day and couldn’t believe how much imagination and energy was flying around the room! That day was a turning point for me, one that led to a master’s degree in early childhood education, a teaching certificate, and ten plus years of childcare - and counting!. I’m so grateful that I ended up in that classroom that day - working with young children is so rewarding and such a perfect fit for me.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

I put a lot of thought and intention into my program. We are flexible, play-based, and child led. Giving kids opportunities to pursue what they are interested in makes for more personal learning, and lessons that really stick with them! During free play the kids really get in the zone and learn in an active way about socializing and sharing. At circle time, we have singalongs that get the kids engaged and excited - our music area is fabulous, and my program sparks lots of creative expression. Our curriculum changes every few months and we often use the changing seasons as a guide. My program is always evolving, in positive and exciting ways!

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

My program is unique because I have a unique approach. I am a firm believer in progressive education - kids learn so much through active experiences and following their own interests and talents – and my program makes it easy to do both! Our space is shaped around the kids, with kid-sized furniture, materials and activities at the children’s height level, and easily accessible toys. This makes it easy to move about independently and choose what to do on their own. This is the best way for kids to learn self-reliance and independence! I’m happy to say that many of my former daycare kids make it a point to reconnect with me later in life – the bonds we create here are lasting, and so special.

Find out if she has a spot for you. It’s 100% free and takes just 5 minutes.

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 or email - we’re here to help.

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