Q&A with Ms. Natalia

What inspires you to care for young children?

The best part about working with young children is how rewarding it is when they learn something new. Whether it’s seeing their pride in their artwork or watching their faces light up when they find a book they love, it’s incredible to be there for the moment when something clicks for them. I started tutoring younger children when I was only 13 years old, so helping others learn has always been a lifelong interest. After raising two kids, the value I place in education has only grown. Knowing that you’ve guided a child in these crucial first steps is magical. The other wonderful thing about daycare is that children have so much to teach one another as well. It’s great to see them bond as peers.

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

Our daily activities will help develop the children’s minds and skills. At this stage, there’s so much they can learn through play, which makes every day fun. The kids in my program love to engage in outdoor play. There’s a really spacious backyard that allows them to run around and enjoy the fresh air in a safe environment. We also do a lot of arts and crafts, which is a beautiful opportunity for them to get expressive and creative. As the seasons change, it’s a chance for us to celebrate different holidays together. It might also be helpful for parents to know that I speak three languages: English, Spanish, and French. It’s a big help to the students who primarily speak one of those languages at home. It makes the adjustment a little easier for them. It can also be fun to teach all the kids words or phrases in new languages. They have such a great time learning new ways of communicating—and it can be really beneficial to their futures as well.

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

Parents should know they can depend on this program. Here, the children will get the education and care they deserve, while their families will find a reliable support network. As a mother of two, I personally struggled with finding the right childcare for my own children. At the heart of this program is the desire to help other moms in my area. Parents are encouraged to come to me if they ever need help or guidance. We’re all in this together. In fact, one of the things I’m most excited to offer is a program that’s open from 7am to 7pm so parents can have flexibility and ease with their work schedules. Hopefully these small details can make a big difference to families.

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.
