Frequently Asked Questions
What is LegUp?LegUp is the first universal child care enrollment system. Our platform connects parents looking for child care and child care providers with open spots. Browse programs, find spots, book tours, and connect with providers—all on LegUp.
How does LegUp work?Share what you’re looking for, including your preferred enrollment date, schedule, and your child’s date of birth (or expected date of birth). You'll then be able to find all the licensed programs in the area, see their availability, apply for spots, schedule a tour, or join the waitlist. No more back-and-forth with programs, no paper forms, no more checks.
Is LegUp free?Yes! For now our platform is free for families and licensed programs to search for care, schedule tours and join waitlists. You will still be required to pay the provider's waitlist and/or registration fees, if applicable.
Are the listed seats actually available?Yes. Because providers use LegUp for their enrollment and registration management, all seats listed are accurate. Once you apply for that spot, the seat is held for you and no one else is able to hold that seat until you tour and make a decision.
What if I don't need child care right away?It’s never too early to start looking for child care - there are more families who need care than there are available seats. Search for the programs that match your needs and join waitlists ASAP.
How long will I sit on a waitlist?The average waitlist length nationwide is 18 months long. However, with LegUp you can expect to receive a seat offer in half the amount of time, based on seat availability.
