    CoRise allows providers to focus 

    on what matters:

    caring for children

    About CoRise

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

    CoRise is a flexible, transparent, and empowering provider network that will administer a range of local and virtual services. It is designed to ease providers’ administrative load 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. 


    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.”
