The demand for child care is rising, which means waitlists are long. Your employees don’t have to go out of their way to find quality child care.

With priority access benefits like priority waitlist and dedicated space at over 1,400 KinderCare centers in 40 states, you’ll ensure your working families have access to the best care.

Priority Waitlist
