Finding the perfect daycare or preschool has always been difficult. COVID-19 has only made it harder.

Browsing different schools’ websites, comparing tuition, calling to set up tours, worrying about safety... it’s exhausting. Not to mention, child care is one of the most expensive items in a family’s budget.

PreK.com founders Ben Mayer and Andy Zwick met in 1983 as New Jersey preschoolers. Both the sons of educators, they’ve always shared a deep connection to the people who dedicate their lives to helping kids reach their full potential. This connection grew even stronger as the owners of Endeavor Schools, one of the largest networks of childcare and preschools in the country, serving over 10,000 parents annually.

Our family takes care of your family.

PreK.com co-founders Ben Mayer, Karol Mayer, and Andy Zwick

Ben and Andy’s experience in early education began with family-run childcare centers and many parents seeking guidance from family and friends looking for care. It is only fitting that as a family business—in addition to lifelong friends Ben and Andy—Ben’s wife Karol Yisell Mayer (née Lora Vasquez) co-founded PreK.com and serves as Head of Community.

Karol grew up in Palmira, Colombia, and faced tremendous hardship as a child—lacking access to basic housing, educational and medical resources, and support. Now, as an educator herself, she has dedicated her time to ensuring that all families have access to high-quality early education.

Our passionate, caring team
makes all the difference.

While we use powerful data science and networking technology to deliver an easy-to-use platform, we know we can’t tackle the challenges of child care with just a couple algorithms.

That’s why we have Family Advisers, who guide parents through every step of the process; School Development Directors, who form deep relationships with schools; and our leadership, whose careers show a lifetime of dedication to helping kids be their absolute best.

You deserve a better way to find a great daycare or preschool that's right for your child.

Early childhood education isn't one-size-fits-all. That's why we designed our entire business around finding the perfect, most convenient fit for your family.

Your child’s school should be safe, caring and nurturing.

There’s nothing more important than the safety of your child. That’s why we aggregate, analyze, and score thousands of childcare providers based on their inspection performance, reviews, and dozens of other data points. If a school doesn’t make the grade, we won’t list it. Period.

Reviews should be enlightening, not confusing.

Parents’ experiences and opinions are extremely important, which is why we include reviews in our school listings. But, our Family Advisers help you cut through the noise of unfiltered reviews by providing more context and information to help you make a better decision.

Enough about us.
This is a platform for you.
