Families Supported

We impact more families with less funding by confronting the root causes of systemic program flaws

Unlock childcare data silos

Don't make decisions based on incomplete information. The childcare field has always been plagued by outdated and confounded data. We collect thousands of real-time data points and provide supported analyses based on what's happening now.

Eliminate provider payment delays

Late payments spur distrust. Childcare providers put their livelihood on the line to serve low-income families. We honor their work by ensuring they receive subsidy reimbursements within days, not weeks.

Simplify confusing paperwork

An overwhelmed applicant is likely to make a mistake or give up altogether. We use guided prompts and branch logic to make applications less burdensome. We pair this with a direct way to communicate with a friendly staff member to ensure success

Cure parent waitlist anxiety

We've taken the mystery out of waitlists. In our system, families can be on multiple waitlists, see their place in line, and receive updates when a spot opens up. This allows everyone to plan smarter and eliminates the anxiety of the unknown.

Reduce expensive care costs

Most families spend over 20% of their income on childcare. Our cost-saving business tools enable providers to pass on their operational efficiencies to families in the form of lower tuition prices.
