Get early access to openings.

  • You'll be the first to know when spots become available in your area.

  • Apply for open spots online.

  • Never miss an open spot. We'll notify you, so you don't have to worry.

  • Is Kinside free for families?
    Yes! Kinside is completely free for families, although you'll still have to pay providers' waitlist and enrollment fees.
  • Are the spots shown on Kinside actually available?
    Yes! Because providers use Kinside for their enrollment, waitlist, and registration management, spots listed are actually available.
  • What if I don't need child care right away?
    It’s never too early to start looking for child care - there are more families who need care than there are available seats. Search for the programs that match your needs and join waitlists ASAP.
  • How long will I sit on a waitlist?
    The average waitlist length nationwide is 18 months long. However, with Kinside you can expect to receive a spot offer in half the amount of time, based on spot availability.
