At a time when roughly half the U.S. lives in a childcare desert, Wonderschool wants to make it easier to find care. The company works with childcare programs in 32 states, helping them start in-home programs and assisting with billing, enrollment, and curriculum for a cut of their revenue. Solving the childcare crisis is a tall order; Wonderschool CEO Chris Bennett acknowledges more government aid is needed because the costs exceed what most parents can pay. But he hopes this is a start: “We want every child to have quality childcare within five minutes of their home.”
