Child Care Administration Software
You've made an intelligent decision. The right child care administration software will automate virtually every administrative task your child care business requires. Of course, with a hundred or more child care software programs available, the trick is to find the right one; the one that does everything you need it to do at a price you can afford.
So, before we jump in and look at software programs, let's first make sure you know what you need the software to do by assessing your administration requirements.
Once you have a clear picture of what your daycare center needs, the next step is to match your requirements with a software.
Most daycare administration software will handle, at the very least, some basic administrative tasks like:
- Family and child information
- Child medical information such as immunizations
- Employee information
- Accounting (including accounts receivable and accounts payable)
- Scheduling and attendance
- Waiting lists
However, as you know, there's much more to running a daycare than just these basic tasks. Advanced software such as EZ-Care2 helps you automate much more of your business with features like online registration and electronic fee collection. It also improves security with fingerprint scanners and door access control. Request a free demo of EZ-Care2.
If you operate a home daycare center and are on a tight budget, try Daycare Manager Pro. It's not the greatest daycare management software out there. But it will handle the basic stuff and the time and money it saves is certainly worth more than it's $49.95 price tag.
