Parents and teachers, working in these hubs, participate in the original courses and regularly improve their qualifications for better childcare and education.

“Childcare means more jobs and more women working. Rich experiences in early education are the foundation of democracy and equal opportunities in society. If parents want to go to work and have no one to leave their children with, this is an area that needs to be addressed,”The Village teams talks about their approach to childcare and education.
- The fresh funding will help the startup create a connected community of quality childcare that supports parents worldwide.
