TOOTRiS has become the nation’s largest Child Care tech-enabled service provider, with nearly 200,000 state-licensed providers across all 50 states.

The innovative technology enables more parents — especially women — to participate and equitably advance in the workforce.

TOOTRIS also leads advocacy efforts as San Diego has the second lowest female participation in the labor force among major cities, in part, due to a lack of affordable Child Care.
