In 2015, Cynthia was not unsure how to increase school enrollments child care. She spent money and time handing out flyers and going to local parks. But still, it was hard to gain awareness and interest from parents.
In 2016, Gloria met with Wonderschool and decided to use Wonderschool child care management software and create a new child care website on the Wonderschool marketplace. She received pivotal child care marketing ideas for her community that could scale.
After listening to our enrollment challenges, Wonderschool created a website and promotion plan within days. We started with Wonderschool in December (2015) and by January (2016), we had double the amount of students.-Cynthia Olmedo, Child Care Director, Mi Casita Azul De Noel Valley Preschool-San Francisco, CA
