A Platform with a Cause

Child care rates are soaring, yet most providers struggle to fill their daycares. How can that be? We have the answer and the solution. Parents and providers simply cannot find each other. The parents demanding child care cannot find the supply offered by child care providers, and Daycare Owl is going to fix this socio-economic issue with technology. Daycare Owl’s goal is to bridge the growing gap between parents and licensed child care providers. Parents can expect to find much lower hourly rates for child care on Daycare Owl. The Daycare Owl platform has given daycares the capability of segmenting the full week into hourly slots. Daycares can now offer weekend care, date night care, overnight care, evening care, and so much more.

Daycares are the most affordable choice when it comes to outside care. Daycares operate on the concept of economy of scales, a proportionate saving in costs gained by an increased level of production. Licensed childcare providers are trained, equipped, and legally allowed to have multiple children in their daycares. Economy of scales keep daycare rates low. The world of affordable and available child care has just expanded, and we can’t wait to see the difference it makes in the lives of children, mothers, fathers, providers, employers, and the economy as a whole.

Welcome to the child care revolution!
