The Rise of the ‘Carebnb': Is This Home-Based Model the Future of the Childcare Industry?

Tech entrepreneurs are franchising childcare services and helping small providers match with those in need of local, home-based childcare. These franchises provide administration services such as payroll, insurance, scheduling, billing, and even mentorship which allows smaller providers to focus on their day-to-day operations. With offices shuttered in the wake of the pandemic, parents look to smaller local childcare options in order to minimize exposure to COVID-19. The franchises have also been involved in reversing local policies that have adversely affected their home-based childcare providers.
