©2018 CoRise Inc.       

    A provider-owned and led business to elevate the family child care industry.

    CoRise is a technology-enabled business service company that will offer products and services that not only ease providers’ administrative load and reduce other business-related burdens, but also lower their costs, and create access to new forms of revenue for greater financial security. CoRise uses the cooperative model to center providers in the decision-making process and ensure responsiveness to their needs. The cooperative launched with a set of products requested by providers, which will have a meaningful impact on their financial and personal welfare. 

    Family child care is one of the most vulnerable – and currently shrinking – segments of the child care industry. FCCPs face an untenable workload and often receive poverty wages.

    WHAT PROVIDERS SAY

    ABOUT CORISE

    “Child care providers, like myself, sometimes feel stressed and overwhelmed because of the extra paperwork. We must make a choice between being behind on daily paperwork or spending less time doing the thing that we all love the most, which is interacting with the children in our program.”
