About us:

BridgeCare believes in making great technology publicly available, accessible, and easy to use.

We are a small, women-led, hardworking team of technologists who make the system of child care work. We believe every child should have access to excellent early childhood education, every person should be able to pursue purpose and enjoy family, and every provider should be valued as an educator. The BridgeCare team does this by providing a user-experience-driven technology suite designed to create a functional, effective early childhood education system.

BridgeCare’s software is a white-label data and case management system for government agencies in the Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) sector.  It is made for organizations that support parents and ECCE providers, primarily licensed child care and public preschool programs.

There has never been a more exciting time to get involved with the childcare industry. Sparked by the pandemic, the US is making significant systematic progress towards increased access to early childhood education and care. This sector received $50B in stimulus funding and is experiencing rapid innovation and progress.

BridgeCare's software is customized to meet the unique needs of the ECCE sector:

  • Increases family access to, and enrollment in, affordable child care 
  • Supports child care providers with marketing programs, managing enrollment, and maintaining licensing status 
  • Provides fully integrated government agency solutions to reduce administrative burdens 
  • Gives real-time data insights for more effective policy and resource decision making
