Our team has released something that we’re really excited about! We take pride in delivering the best products we can for your business, and we’re happy to announce that – with our partners, Markel Insurance – we’re able to offer an awesome solution for in-home daycare providers!
There are more than 280,000 in-home daycare facilities in the US – many more than commercially operated child care centers. These are family-owned businesses that allow those who enjoy spending their days taking care of young kids to build a sustainable business around their passion – while providing parents in the neighborhood with an opportunity to pursue full-time employment.
We believe we have managed to pull together the coverage that an in-home daycare business truly needs, and made the package available at a really good price. In-home daycare insurance is (surprisingly) complicated, and the best part of Next’s solution is that we’ve taken all of the intricacies and industry nuances into our hands, keeping the end-to-end process from sign-up to claim straightforward and simple for the customer.
So what type of coverage is included?
With this policy, you would get 2 primary coverages: General Liability insurance with a limit of up to $3,000,000 and Accident & Health coverage for up to $250,000. You can get this – our Pro policy – for less than $50/month, with our Basic Policy coverage starting as low as $30/month. Monthly payments are available and there are never any extra fees.
So what does this actually mean?
A child in your care falls and twists their ankle and the parents expect you to reimburse them for the $10,000 ER bill. We’ll cover it.
A parent sues you for not spending enough time with their child, alleging it resulted in developmental delays. The legal fees end up adding up to $30,000. We’ll cover it.
A parent alleges one of your employees touched their child inappropriately, even though they absolutely didn’t. As a result, you incur $50,000 in legal costs to defend your company. We’ll cover it.
A child becomes disabled via an unforeseeable accident and the parents sue you for $300,000. We’ll cover it.
What’s next for Next?
We’re proud of this product. It has all the hallmarks of the insurance coverages Next envisioned when we were founded – affordable, useful, reliable, easy to use. We learned a lot bringing this one to market, and we’re going to take those learnings forward as we continue to expand our offerings.
