Hi! We’re KidAdmit.

KidAdmit is quickly advancing preschools by connecting them to today’s tech savvy parents and vice versa. We are creating a better experience for parents and preschools so both can effectively communicate throughout the entire admissions process.

KidAdmit receives the names of preschools and daycares from the California State Child Licensing Department. Preschools and daycares listed within KidAdmit are licensed through the State of California. Information listed on the preschool and daycare’s profile pages is gathered directly from the preschool or daycare through their admissions office and/or website.
