ChildCareDesk aims to help parents find quality child care centers near them.
- There's no specialized search engine to find child care.
- No channel to update slot availability for child care centers. And thus no way for parents to get notified
- No homogeneous review and rating platform for both parents and child care centers
- No data for Government/Investors and NGOs to gauge demand
- We collate data from various sources and make it accessible via text/mobile/web. Our data contains subsidized, government approved, licensed and permitted child care centers (for NYC) along with centers from around the web.
- We provide a platform for child care centers to update their profile and availability information
- We offer state of the art reviews and rating system. Our rating system is based on an algorithm that factors 3 types of ratings:
a. System Rating - Derived from various accredition agencies (E.g.: Violations)
b. Social Ratings - Based on reviews by friends and family (Word of mouth)
c. User Ratings
- Provide analytics and Heatmaps based on searches
- ChildCareDesk has an Android app available in Google Play Store
- ChildCareDesk.com has a mobile friendly website
- SMS solution to search centers based on zip/location (Send text "Centers <ZIP_CODE>" to 347-252-3728
- SMS solution for child care centers to update availability
We would like to build further more on the platform and connect child care centers to parents. We can do this by:
a. getting more child care centers on board by providing more features for child care centers that let them connect with parents and grow their business
b. collating, transforming (ETL) and feeding more data sets into the system and making it easily searchable.
c. connect the platform with various parent groups like forums, mommy groups, etc
