About Us

Upwards is the largest childcare network in the United States, committed to providing families with access to quality, affordable care.

We understand that finding and securing childcare can be a challenge. That's why we offer a range of ways to help families navigate the process, including connecting them with trusted providers through our technology-based marketplace and partnering with government entities to improve access to sponsored care.

But our services don't just stop at families. We also support childcare providers in operating sustainable businesses and help employers of all sizes offer their employees childcare benefits.

At Upwards, we believe everyone deserves access to quality childcare — not just families who can afford it.
