3. Kangarootime


Founded: 2015

“Kangarootime helps Childcare professionals with a cloud-based mobile application that collects payments, automates ‘check-in’ and ‘check-out’ and streamlines communication. There are over 1 Million Daycare Center, Family Childcare (FCC) Homes, and Early Childhood Education programs in the US and most lack technology infrastructure and business intelligence tools. Our platform leverages automation to manage collections, revenue cycle, center utilization, and regulatory adherence. Our monetization model is a proven revenue share/charge processing capture that is offset by labor savings and optimization of collections, so daycare centers can acquire our technology virtually for free.

We take pride in relieving childcare professionals from manual or administrative tasks and giving them time for what is important.”
