Online Child Care Directory Launches Nationwide
Expansion from exclusive DC market to cover 200,000 new providers across the US.
Just eight months ago, co-founders Patrick Matos, Evgeniya Usmanova and Gabriel Marques unveiled their robust platform and personalized search tool for the greater Washington DC child care market. Child care centers and home based providers in the DC region were able to create beautiful profiles, and within the first few months their network grew to over 400 providers.
The decision to add a nationwide directory listing is a strategic move to extend CareLuLu’s offerings to communities across the nation. The new nationwide directory lists information on over 200,000 child care providers across the US. Depending on location, information includes: daycare name, licensing and contact information, hours of operation, and/or the ages accepted.
CareLuLu offers a personalized search for parents seeking child care in the greater Washington DC metropolitan area. Provider profiles offer more in-depth information than the nationwide directory listings, such as tuition costs, program, facilities, services and staff experience. DC-area provider profiles, along with 10 other states listed on CareLuLu.com only include regulated child care providers that have received the necessary safety training, background checks, and whom undergo regular unannounced inspections. CareLuLu plans to expand its full product with personalized search tool and detailed daycare and preschool profiles in new markets in the upcoming weeks.

CareLuLu is an online marketplace that allows parents to search and filter child care options that match their family's unique criteria and needs. CareLuLu was born in 2013, when parents Evgeniya Usmanova & Patrick Matos, turned weeks of research and frustration for their own daycare search -- including 16 in-person visits to child care centers -- into a powerful platform that simplifies the child care and preschool search process. Since launching, CareLuLu has helped hundreds of parents connect with child care providers, and was selected as a top 10 finalist in the 2013 Women 2.0 Pitch Competition in Las Vegas for most innovative, women-run tech start-ups.
