Partnership Manager - New York City

Wonderschool - New York - Full time

In California alone, 75% of kids are unable to find a spot in a childcare program and early childhood teachers earn around $38,000 per year. Wonderschool is building a platform to solve both these problems. We’re bringing high-quality childcare and preschool to millions of children who don’t have access today, and creating opportunities for teachers to do what they love while doubling their income.

We partner with teachers to open neighborhood schools in their own homes. We support teachers through licensing, marketing, and business administration so they can focus on what they do best - delivering great care and quality education to students.

Our tech is focused on creating an efficient marketplace for families and preschools through web and mobile tools. Teachers can promote their programs, handle paperwork and payments, and communicate with parents and fellow teachers. Parents can explore programs, schedule tours, and submit payments that are fast and secure.

Wonderschool is based in San Francisco and backed by Andreessen Horowitz, Omidyar Network, Gary Community Investments, First Round Capital and several other top-tier investors.

We are on a mission to transform early childhood education and to ensure every child has access to early education that helps them realize their potential.
