As long time users of Procare Software® know the Letter Merge feature built into Procare Family Data has been a great way to print or email letters to groups of selected families at your child care, daycare or preschool. You can insert family and child information, like the parent’s name, address, and balance due as well as the child’s name and classroom.

The answer is yes. You can get their names on both roll call sheets, although using their Primary and Secondary classrooms is not the most appropriate way to accomplish this goal. Continue reading
My recent post on Efficient Scheduling of Daycare Staff got me thinking about other ways to economize on payroll expenditures. If you are currently outsourcing your payroll check calculations you should seriously consider doing your own Daycare Payroll. It’s much easier than you might think and will save you money every pay period by not having to cut a check to your payroll service. If you are currently spending $50 to $100 per month or more on a payroll service you’ll easily recoup your software investment in just a short time. Continue reading
