What is the 1Core Learn@Home Accelerator Program?

The 1Core Learn@Home Accelerator Program is designed to help Child Care centers deal with enrollment challenges during the pandemic and beyond.
COVID-19 impacted the Child Care industry in a way where things will never be the same. Here are a few reasons as to why we are allocating our grant money to this:
  • ​The Child Care industry is in major crisis because of COVID-19.
  • 40% of U.S. Child Care Centers said they'll close permanently without public assistance.
  • ​325,000+ Child Care workers have lost their jobs since February.
  • ​Many parents are still not comfortable sending their children back to Child Care centers.
  • Unlike many k-12 programs, most ECE programs are not publicly funded. Yet children's most important formative years are from 0-5 years of age.
  • ​​Many Child Care centers are still operating at limited capacity and unable to serve the rest of their children.
  • ​Giving child care centers the ability to put all or some of their programs online will help them serve more children, increase enrollments, and generate an additional source of income for the center. 
  • ​We believe child care services industry is the backbone of our economy and we want to help.

Benefits

The 1Core Learn@Home Accelerator Program can benefit centers in the following way:
  • ​Prepares the center for another pandemic or situation requiring lock-down.
  • ​Allows centers to remain operational even if they have to close suddenly because of a COVID-19 outbreak in school.
  • Allows center to still offer classes when severe weather conditions prevent children from attending in-person.
  • ​​Allows centers to offer their programs to children unable to attend due to short-term medical reasons.
  • ​Gives centers an additional income stream they can use as creatively as they'd like. For example, centers can offer virtual extra curricular classes over the weekends.​
  • ​​Allows them to educate children who are still staying at home.
  • ​Allows them to have hybrid education for children who come to centers only part time
  • ​Allows centers to offer their unique programs beyond their physical location, even worldwide.
  • Create more jobs for staff who can and prefer to teach remotely.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is the Accelerator Program for?

The 1Core Learn@Home Accelerator Program is for child care centers and preschools who want to add virtual classes to their existing programs. Virtual education for preschoolers is here to stay well beyond the pandemic days. Whether centers want to offer full-time programs, part-time programs, or extracurricular classes online, Learn@Home was built in a way that adapts to whatever each center's needs are. 

How much does it cost to participate in the Accelerator Program?

The Accelerator Program is funded through a grant. Although the value exceeds USD$10,000, centers accepted into the program do not pay anything to participate and launch their virtual programs. 

What does the Learn@Home platform do?

The Learn@Home platform is the tool that allows centers to conduct their entire virtual programs online through one simple platform. The platform has been built specifically for the preschool market and is flexible enough to accommodate whichever virtual programs centers want to offer. For a comprehensive walkthrough of all features, please watch the platform demo video in this page.

How much does Learn@Home software cost?

Learn@Home platform costs $67/month/license. Centers accepted into the Accelerator Program enjoy 3 full months of complimentary subscription. We did this to give centers enough time to set up and begin charging for their virtual programs before they have to pay for the tool. Since the platform allows for the expansion of program offerings beyond what centers already offer in their physical locations, we expect the platform to pay for itself. 

Can I use Learn@Home if I already have another center management system like ProCare, EZ Care, BrightWheel, etc.?

Absolutely! Learn@Home can be used as a stand-alone platform and it can also be used as part of the existing 1Core center management system.
