The impact investor is part of a group backing Wonderschool, which helps people start affordable, in-home preschools. The startup works with 140 early-childhood programs in California and 16 in New York City, providing licensing and marketing assistance, administration software and other support.
Be Curious Partners, Rethink Education, Edelweiss Partners and Learn Capital also joined in the funding, which will allow Wonderschool to expand in New York, the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles.
