SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Wonderschool, an online child care management platform that makes it easier to find quality child care and streamlines the business of running child care programs, announced today it will be providing its platform free of charge to all Afghan refugees. To assist those resettling, Wonderschool is waiving all fees for the platform. Wonderschool will offer end-to-end onboarding in both English and Pashto.


"In response to the humanitarian crisis caused by the displacement of Afghan refugees, Wonderschool is committed to providing essential services to create jobs and ensure long-term stability," says Wonderschool CEO Chris Bennett. "It is our responsibility to support resettled families as they rebuild their lives and communities."
