We know Providers are on the front lines of the Coronavirus, and they are essential to support parents in need.
After Gov. Tony Evers ordered all K-12 schools across Wisconsin to shutter in an attempt to flatten the spread of the COVID-19, most child care centers fell the impact right away, if not affected in earlier weeks already.
It is public that the state Department of Children and Families is encouraging child care facilities to stay open as long as they can to support the needs of parents working in essential businesses. The Kid-Tastic mobile wants to help Providers and Parents by connecting centers with child care availability to parents with immediate needs in an easy way.
In a recent interview to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Amy Schwabe, where Kid-Tastic app founder and CEO Amanda Davis shared some of her concerns as a child care provider herself, and why she created this app to support Providers and Parents with childcare needs.
“I don’t think crisis is a big enough word right now,” Davis said.
Immediate, Open, Quality Child Care Is Hard to Find Today
“Many child care centers in Wisconsin do provide flexible care, in an educational setting, at an affordable price – but they aren’t always at the top of a Google search or they don’t have the exact availability a parent needs,” says Davis. “The Kid-Tastic mobile app brings centers like this together so parents can access them when needed, work with multiple centers to accommodate their schedule, book and pay immediately.”
Parents can search Kid-Tastic based on their own unique set of needs. When centers that fulfill that criteria appear, parents have the convenience of being able to see the center’s availability – no matter what time of day it is. Each family account contains details about each child, including medical and emergency contact information, to make working with a new center as quick and painless as possible.
Kid-Tastic Puts Parents in Control, and Back in the Workforce
“Parents working multiple shifts, adhering to strict workplace policies, or juggling care between family and a facility, want and need to be in control,” Davis says. With this app “finding, booking, and paying for child care on Kid-Tastic is as easy and secure as ordering a service online”.
