Mission

To create transparency in the world of daycare.

To encourage daycare facilities to maintain the highest standards possible.

To help parents make well-informed decisions when choosing a daycare facility.

About

This site was made in memoriam for two lives that were tragically lost at daycare facilities in New York City, merely weeks apart from one another.

Team

When Tarek Pertew, father and member of the team, learned about the death of his neighbor's child, Karl, and his nanny's granddaughter, Keke, he reached out to a handful of friends about working on this project. Within minutes, nearly every person he reached out to jump right into helping make this project a reality.

The team is a mashup of parents and future parents from the NYC Tech community.
