The team at Munchkin Mailbox has announced their official launch in the Washington, D.C., Metro area. The company offers a seamless online platform where parents can go to find find childcare listings in their area and apply to multiple facilities at once.
The company was founded by Anna Levin, a working mom who knows firsthand just how stressful applying for daycares and preschools can be. She came to the realization that the process would be so much simpler if it could be carried out online, similar to the way high school students can apply online for college. Levin talked to other parents only to find that they were equally astounded at the difficulty of applying for daycares and preschools.
“My friends and I were encountering 9-18 month waitlists, unreturned phone calls and emails, and spending 20, 30, sometimes 40 hours on applications from start to finish,” says Levin. “It just seemed crazy that the most stressed people on the planet, working parents, were spending precious time and energy securing care for their children.”
That’s when Levin created Munchkin Mailbox.
With Munchkin Mailbox, both childcare providers and parents alike get an easy to use portal that takes out some of the pain points found on both sides. Childcare providers can customize their online applications at Munchkin Mailbox, and parents can complete multiple applications simultaneously. As it stands, Munchkin Mailbox is the only website where parents can search and apply directly to preschools and daycares online. It gives parents a single portal where they can find child care, submit an application, and receive confirmation without writing various checks or making several phone calls.
“Munchkin Mailbox has been a lifesaver,” said one recent parent who used the platform. “What would have taken me hours turned into 15 minutes.”
Preschools and daycares can list current and upcoming openings, COVID-19 policies, host their custom applications, and receive application fees. As opposed to other forms of advertising and lead generation sites, Munchkin Mailbox offers their services for free.
While Munchkin Mailbox is currently catering to the Washington, D.C., Metro area, they are working to launch in the New York City and Dallas areas within the next few months. This will bring new and exciting online child care application opportunities to parents in some of the biggest metro areas in the country, as well as to the preschools and daycares serving these regions. The platform is free for both parents and childcare providers.
