Where have Mud Pies & Little Red Wagons Gone?

Recently an article was posted at Edutopia.org asking an important question. Where have the little red wagons gone? The story focuses on a first grader, Katy, who loves to twirl and wear her favorite rainbow poncho. The problem is she also has an IEP folder that is over an inch thick.

That’s all for today. Until next time, cheers!

Search for a Family Across Multiple Locations

If you manage multiple locations for your child care business, you may know that ProCare offers a Multi-Site version of its Child Care Management Software. Multi-Site allows corporate, or other centers with various locations, to manage them all from a central office or at each individual location as needed.

Sometimes you may need to look up a family, child, or employee, but you don’t know which site they belong to. For example if you receive a check from Mary Smith, but don’t know which location her child attends. Or, perhaps you have more than one Mary Smith and it’s not clear which one she is. Problem solved! ProCare has a utility (see image) you can run to look people up by searching across all Multi-Site locations. There are two ways to get this time saving utility.    Continue reading
