Child Care Billing Software
Although your number one priority is caring for the children who attend your daycare, your business depends on your ability to bill your clients. Billing software helps you to stay on top of billing so your business can thrive. It also keeps your clients happy by reducing billing-related human errors.
What to look for in child care billing software
When evaluating child care billing software, you'll want to know if it handles tuition charges, supply and activity fees, and co-payments. Does it link fees to child's schedule? Does it give you the ability to split fees for divorced families and manage subsidized family billing? Does it track late fees, print receipts, and calculate hourly billing, overtime and late pick up fees?
A ledger will keep track of the charges and payments for each child. This is a feature your child care software absolutely must have.
At the very least, your software should allow you to print invoices which can be sent to your clients.
Accounting ReportsReports are an important tool for managing your child care center's finances and evaluating the success of your business.
