Got questions? We’ve got you covered.
At NeighborSchools, we make it easier to launch and run a home daycare. That’s because we know that child care matters—for parents, kids, and communities. But often, caregivers like you who do this essential work don’t get the pay or respect they deserve. Owning a home daycare allows you to build a career that’s both well paid and purpose driven. Together, we’re leading a movement to demand better pay for child care workers and better care for our children.
If you’re a parent or have ever worked with kids, you probably have the experience required to become a home daycare provider. But we’ll need to make sure your home qualifies, too. Whether you own or rent, there are some important requirements for your space. Take our quiz and we’ll help you figure out if your home is daycare-ready.
With NeighborSchools, most people open their daycare in 3 to 4 months. You’ll work with a team of experts who will help you get licensed, pass your home inspection, and find your first families. We’re here to help you get to opening day on a timeline that works for you and your family.
We know that opening a home daycare isn’t easy—that’s why it’s completely free to get started with NeighborSchools. Once you’ve launched your daycare and begin earning money from families, you’ll pay us a small portion of your revenue. This allows us to keep supporting you and to help more home daycare providers all across the US.
When you join NeighborSchools, you’ll get access to a whole team of experts who are ready to help you launch a thriving and profitable daycare. You’ll get to be your own boss but have the support of a community with hundreds of home daycare providers just like you. It really is the best way to start a career as a home daycare provider.
Providers who open their daycares with NeighborSchools have earned up to $90,000 a year. To get a better idea of your earnings based on where you live, start by filling out our Readiness Quiz.
Whether you’ve just gotten your license or have been a daycare provider for years, there’s a place for you at NeighborSchools. Contact us
