Jackrabbit Care started
with business owners like you
Jackrabbit co-founder Mark Mahoney, a former gymnast, faced the business hurdles every owner of a child-focused business faces. He looked for good solutions, but he found none that met his needs well. In 2004, he decided to do something about it. He and Jackrabbit co-founder Mike Carper developed the first online software for class management. They shared their solution with small business owners like you. Along the way, they enhanced it to match the evolving needs of childcare centers and childcare managers. Plus, they built a dedicated support and technical team.
