We're on a mission to connect families and child care providers seamlessly, helping programs grow their business and helping families stay in the workforce.

Who we are

LegUp is the Enrollment Success platform that makes child care more accessible by simplifying the enrollment process for programs, families, and employers.

When our founder, Jessica Eggert, experienced the challenges of finding and enrolling in new child care from both the side of a parent and from working at a child care program, she knew there had to be a better way. So she joined forces with technology expert and co-founder Garrett Vargas to simplify enrollment for everyone.

Today, LegUp is led by a diverse group of working parents, early childhood educators, and early childcare policy experts who want to see the child care industry not just grow, but thrive.

What we believe

  • Every family deserves access to quality child care.
  • Every child care program deserves the opportunity to do what they love, while growing a thriving business.
  • The experience of finding child care should be easy, trusted, and reliable.
Our Vision
We want to create a world where every family has the support they need to reach their parenting and career goals and achieve a balanced lifestyle.

The team behind LegUp

We're working parents, child care advocates, former preschool teachers and Directors, and enrollment nerds.
