While providing childcare can mean lots of fun and games, at the end of the day it is a business. Keeping track of billing and payment is part of the job if you want the business to stay in the black.
Summer camp businesses are seasonal affairs. Each year you have several months of marketing and registration, then the rush of campers over the summer break. At the end, you clean up and start planning for next year. If you are keeping manual records or are using multiple software solutions for each part of your business, you aren’t working as efficiently as you could.
The demand for afterschool programs continues to grow, but sometimes the very places that need one have multiple challenges in implementation and operation. According to a study by the Afterschool Alliance, participation in afterschool programs has increased by two million children between 2004 and 2009.
Finally, Mother Nature decided to bring back Spring, and our hearts turn to…Spring cleaning. And where better to start than with your daycare recordkeeping system!
We are proud to be one of NAA Annual Convention’s exhibitors - Booth 202!
EZChildTrack’s president, Jeffery Thomas, will be showing how childcare management software streamlines and automates payment processes, how an online parent portal allows your customers to sign up for afterschool programs in an instant, and how it can help improve your staff’s productivity as a whole.
Spring Break is almost upon us. Does your childcare center have plans for the week? Many facilities, including school districts offering childcare, offer additional or different programming during the week of Spring Break, partly to set it off from the rest of the season and partly to accommodate added children.
If you play your cards right, you may be able to entice a few new clients with your fun ideas.
EZChildTrack software allows hassle-free input of registration data online using secure electronic registration forms. The inclusion of registration forms enables parents to open new accounts via the Parent Portal.
Keeping things in their proper order when there are children around can seem like an impossible task. In the morning, everything is nice and neat. At pick-up time, the place looks like the toddler room in Toy Story 3. (Cue the discordant music.)
EZChildTrack offers calendar-based enrollment, where parents can enroll their child in your program or into a special activity online. Calendar-based enrollment allows parents to enroll through the Parent Portal. Automating the process means you can accept anyone into any class or program at any time with seamless, automated billing.
