Who’s in control, you or the center?

With Procare, there's no need to struggle

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. And, it’s all-inclusive with check-in solutions and door security. Once you start collecting tuition electronically, you’ll say goodbye to late payments forever—all with just a few clicks!

Child Care News for August

tucker-newsboyPersonalized Care is Best for Preparing Pre-school Kids for the Road Ahead

We all know that children respond best when they are taught one-on-one, and this includes preschool environments. A study conducted by La Petite Academy followed students from fall 2014 through spring 2015. Results show that children who were given tailored instruction and personalized care show a 370% increase in readiness for kindergarten.

A New Way to Ensure Center Profitability?

Good management software is a key element in helping centers to operate at a profit, but what else can be done to add value to running a business in this industry? One way is with state assistance, where money is funneled from various sources, such as taxed items like tobacco or alcohol. Another strategy is to bring a number of centers together under one umbrella and consolidating the business end which is run by dedicated professionals.

Child Care Can Help Parents Get their GEDs

With help from child care centers, parents that previously had no time to study or attend classes are able to achieve important goals such as getting their GED. This opens many doors for parents trying to make ends meet, and the price of keeping their children in child care becomes much more affordable when incomes increase. However, for some parents, an extra helping hand is necessary, and in York County, PA, a partnership between the York County Literacy Council and the Community Progress Council gives assistance to parents seeking their GEDs.

Automatic Tuition Collection Becomes Mandatory

TE-CollectionProcare Software, the nation’s leading child care management solution provides an automated tuition collection service called Tuition Express. During our frequent conversations with users and non-users alike, a common theme continues to surface, parents pay late.

The solution to this problem is to make automated tuition collection the only way you collect tuition and fees. With Tuition Express, child care providers make the service mandatory for parents and late payments become a thing of the past.

Automated and integrated tuition collection is easier, safer and more convenient for you and your customers. Today’s parent doesn’t carry a checkbook. They handle all their financial transactions online or set up automatic payments. Additionally, by processing payments automatically—transactions are posted to each parent’s account instantly.

How do you convince parents to accept automated payments?

Some families may be resistant, but directors are simply saying, “Our management software allows us to collect tuition automatically. That gives us more time with the children—and that’s important to all of us!”

Is it affordable and reliable?

Tuition Express is it’s own processor. This means substantial cost savings that we pass on to you with the lowest rates in the industry. We offer rock-solid reliability, handling more than a million transactions each month for nearly 200,000 families across North America.

If you’re currently a Procare user and you’re not using Tuition Express, or if you’re a child care owner or director and would like to learn more, call us at 1-800-338-3884. You can also click here to find more information online.
