Great New Childcare App: CubbySpot

Great New Childcare App: CubbySpot

February 4, 2016 | Amanda Munday
We're always on the lookout for apps that can be useful to the HiMama Community. CubbySpot is a mobile platform that connects parents and daycares to fill available spots easily. They help parents find quality available day care and assist child care centres fill openings faster.

We talked with the Cubbyspot Founders, who said:

"My co-founder Liza Ong & I were inspired to start CubbySpot when we found the experience of looking for open daycare spots in Toronto very frustrating. It took us months to find a daycare spot and there was no easy way to keep track of the waiting list we signed up. The way it works is that daycares will post their openings for free in their web portal. In that portal, the daycare centres can post additional info like photos and contact information. These openings will be propagated to the parents using the mobile app and the parents who subscribe to notifications will get these openings real-time.

Our mobile app for parents was launched last October 2015 on the App Store and Google Play. Our web portal for child care centres was also launched at the same time. We know first hand the challenges of trying to find the best for our children and CubbySpot exists to address those challenges, particularly in the child care space".

Parents who would like to download the Cubbyspot app can do so through Apple's App Store or on or Google Play . Child care centres who would like to post their openings can go to the Cubbyspot website
