Are you working hard to run your center or is your center working you hard?
What I mean is that many directors often tell us about the work they pour into their center every day. But, in the chaos of everything going on around you, ideas of growing your business take a back seat when it’s a struggle to just maintain. We all know that a well-run center requires a lot of time and energy to run smoothly and profitably. That’s where you come in…
Before you arrive in the morning, your day is already booked. Immediately you are busy greeting parents, posting checks, juggling staff, and managing accounting. Before you know it, you’ve skipped lunch or perhaps you’re picking up toys and wiping down counters so you can go home. With time so short, you may even find yourself working when you should be playing. If this sounds familiar, it’s time to look into automating your center with a software solution that as unique as you and your center.
The best child care management system provides an all-in-one solution. It allows you to do away with confusing spreadsheets, generic financial software, clipboards and bank deposits.It helps you easily manage child and family data, attendance tracking, parent communications, staff hours, child/teacher ratios and more.

Cross the Finish Line with Direct Deposit
You know the routine. It’s payday at your preschool or child care business, but it feels like “race day” both for you and your staff. As the owner or director you’re pressing to get payroll checks calculated, while your staff is antsy about hurrying to the bank to deposit their earnings.
Wouldn’t you like to stop racing around and create a win-win situation for everyone? It’s easier than you think! By finding the right tool to streamline the process of doing payroll and handling direct deposit for your employees, you’ll cross the finish line without even running the race. Continue reading
Tired of manually filing W2 forms for your child care business? Well, there’s no reason to print reams of paper W2’s any longer. With Daycare Payroll Software and the W2 Program from Procare Software®, you may now choose to e-file federal W2’s for your child care, daycare or preschool.
Why file electronically?
It’s fast, secure and provides an immediate receipt for proof of filing from the Social Security Administration (SSA). Also, electronic filers have a later filing deadline (the last day of March) vs. the last day of February for all other filers, according to the SSA “How To File” Instructions.
How will it work?
It’s easy. The Procare W2 Program will import your payroll data for the year so you can review it and make any necessary adjustments. Then, with one button click you’ll create an export file that can be uploaded to the SSA Website. You’ll just need to register at the SSA Business Services page and log in to your account to upload the file.
