About Us


We are two moms, with 5 kids between us.

As working parents (an architect and a marketer), we know how hard it is to find quality child care that aligns with your professional and personal lives (hello 7pm conference call, goodbye 7am yoga class).

The reality is, parenthood has transformed radically in the last 50 years:

  • There are more 2-working-parent families than ever before.
  • There are more mobile working parents and parents who work non-traditional hours than ever before.
  • There is more focus on work/life integration than ever before.

And yet child care services have hardly evolved:

  • Typical child care center hours do not align with the modern work day and non-traditional working hours.
  • Long-term commitments clash with the variability of modern child care needs.
  • Child care remains physically siloed, despite known benefits of work-site care.

So we decided to create a new model of care that is more compatible with contemporary life. Flexible scheduling and extended hours, drop-in access, an enrichment-based curriculum, pay-for-what-you-need pricing, and onsite work and wellness amenities for parents are some of the features that make Brella a child care solution suited to the dynamic needs of today's families. 

Brella was inspired by our own experiences, but it has been designed to serve all families - whether comprised of working, mobile, or stay-at-home parents - because children deserve quality care and parents deserve to feel supported.
