Wonderschool aids educators and childcare providers in creating their own at-home preschools and helps parents find the right place for their children. The startup, which currently works out of Los Angeles and San Francisco, helps educators with licensing, program setup and marketing, including a software platform that helps teachers manage their programs. It also allows parents to search for Wonderschool programs, schedule visits, enroll children and make payments.

“Only about seven percent of all companies offer early programs,” Wonderschool founder and CEO Chris Bennet told Venturebeat. Even tech giants like Apple and Facebook don’t provide on-campus child daycare centers, leaving parents to their own devices. “Our mission is to ensure that every child has access to a home away from home that helps them realize their full potential,” Bennet said.

The startup recently raised $2 million in seed money and hopes to expand to 15 new cities across the U.S.
