One Preschool was started in 2016 by a group of educators and technologists in California. The company’s mission is to provide quality childcare to every child in the world. We are doing this by building a platform where people can start preschools out of their homes. We provide a preschool in a box model where we provide assistance from licensing, curriculum, school setup, and everything in between. We are building software that will allow teachers to manage their students, parents, and their school from one dashboard. Along with this, there will be a marketplace for parents to search One Preschool schools, schedule visits, enroll their children, and make payments.

It’s been proven time and time again that children should start developing cognitive, motor, behavioral, and social skills from as early as 6 months and we believe by leading a revolution where all children are able to get access to an environment to develop these skills, we can create drastic changes to neighborhoods and societies as a whole.

One Preschool is venture backed by First Round Capital and some of the most respected Seed and Series A firms.
