Does one parent give up their job to stay at home – missing almost 4 years of professional life? Does this impact mother’s employability? With nurseries & the pandemic looming for the next year, are mothers going to have to sacrifice their careers?

They are building a machine learning platform for this product that will automate personalized early years, in a way that has not been done before.
