KindiCare is a unique two-sided marketplace platform specifically developed for the early childhood education and care market.
Our aim is to make the journey into early learning simpler, easier and more engaging for millions of families; whilst at the same time making the process more efficient and effortless for the thousands of childcare providers who want to ensure most of their time is focused on improving the lives and educational outcomes of the children in their care.
The founders’ personal journey into parenthood took them very quickly into an unfamiliar world of early childhood education and care. They found the process of searching, comparing, enquiring and applying for childcare services far more stressful, complex and difficult than it needed to be. Communicating with multiple childcare providers was time consuming and getting updates on the progress of waitlist applications involved countless emails and phone calls.
That’s why the KindiCare App was created – the industry’s first mobile app dedicated to the early childhood education and care journey for consumers with market leading features to search, compare, enquire and apply for early learning services.
Simple and easy to use, the KindiCare App provides everything a family needs to manage the process from the moment families start searching for childcare centres and services, all the way through to their child’s successful enrolment.
With over 16,500 centres on the KindiCare App across Australia covering all care types, families searching for early learning services are provided with a comprehensive view of the centre and service options in their local area.
In a first for the market, the unique KindiCare Rating and Value for Money Index enables KindiCare App users to simply and easily compare the quality and value for money of the early learning and care options in their search area. The App also comes with smart filters that enable users to quickly narrow down their childcare choices to only the centres and services that match their family’s unique needs. All of this eliminates hours and hours of research and the need for families to go to countless childcare provider and market comparison websites.
Constantly innovating, unique capabilities like the recently introduced Search with Subsidy feature allow families to navigate the complex area of childcare subsidies and rebates and search for services based on their estimated out of pocket costs after government subsidies have been applied. Such innovations eliminate confusion and take the guesswork out of the cost of childcare so families can assess their options based on quality, value for money and affordability according to their own unique circumstances.
In another industry first, the KindiCare App seamlessly integrates to the KindiCare CRM Portal for childcare providers letting parents and guardians communicate securely and conveniently 24/7 with multiple providers all in one place using the Mailbox feature. With Smart Notifications instantly to the mobile device, the KindiCare App ensures families are always up to date – eliminating the need for follow up phone calls and email, giving families and providers the gift of time.
