And that starts with supporting parents on their childcare journey.
We believe it shouldn’t be so hard to find and enroll in childcare. LegUp provides personalized childcare support, going beyond just the search and sticking with the family from beginning to the end of the process to enabling them to have more successful, balanced lives.
LegUp was founded in 2019 by two working parents who have been through the struggle of finding care and have seen team members and colleagues leave the workforce because they couldn't find what they needed when they needed it. After our CEO, Jessica, got pregnant with her second child, she knew something had to change. And LegUp was born, helping working parents across the Seattle regional area.
