Q&A with Ms. Ivy

What inspires you to care for young children?

Even at a young age, children have such powerful personalities. It’s a joy to watch them become the best versions of themselves every day. With 12 years of experience at a preschool, I have had the privilege of meeting and teaching some incredible kids. Just thinking that I had a small impact on their lives makes this job so rewarding. After having my third child, I decided to turn my dream of opening a daycare into a reality. I bought a house and transformed it into our program space. The kids who enroll here will really help make it feel like a home!

What’s a typical day like at your daycare?

At this program, the kids will have fun, make new friends, and learn to express themselves. A really special part of the day is circle time. Everyone loves it! We do a lot of singing and dancing and laughing as a group. It’s a wonderful opportunity for the kids to get comfortable with one another and for their individual personalities to shine through. With activities like outside play, free time, and arts and crafts, the children will develop their curiosities, social skills, and the confidence they need to start school. Each child is unique, and if there is something specific that someone is struggling with, we will work on it together. Every kid will leave this daycare with a sense of accomplishment and be excited for what’s next in their lives!

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

Parents should know that this daycare is not only a place where children learn—it’s a support network that they will be welcomed into. Raising children is no easy task, and the parents who become part of our community will never be alone. (In fact, on special occasions, I like to offer parents the night out! It’s just a small thing that will hopefully give them the peace of mind that their kids are being looked after with love.) In the past, families have really trusted me and come to me for guidance and advice. As a mother of three, I’m really looking forward to connecting with other parents and working together to make this program as fruitful as possible for their kids.

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.
