Share Your Story Guidelines
How do I get started?
Begin with the basics:
* Your name, position and how long you’ve been using ProCare
* The name and address of your child care center, phone number, email and web site
What else should I say?
Just a few sentences about you and your child care business. You can say most anything you like but you may wish to include things like: why you chose to start a center, what aspect of your center you are most proud of, what is your child care philosophy, what do the children like best about it, and so forth.
How do you find ProCare helpful?
Add a sentence or two about how you use ProCare, or how it has helped some aspect of center management, or perhaps a particularly good experience you’ve had with your Software Consultant or the ProCare Technical Support Team.
What services does your center offer?
Briefly describe the types of services you offer like: infants, toddlers, preschool, after school care and summer camp. Be sure to mention any special programs or services of which you are especially proud or that make your center unique.
Attach a photo:
If you’d like you may email a photo to have included with your story. The photo could be of your building, playground, art room, or whatever you’d like to share. The best photos (and those that others will find most interesting) typically include children. Perhaps kids at play, or in front of a garden, or standing next to a sign for your center. If you don’t have a photo that suits you that’s okay. We may include a generic picture of children just to liven up the page a little.
Will my story or photo be edited?
Yes, in most cases your submission will be edited for spelling, clarity and length. We don’t expect what you write to be a literary masterpiece so don’t worry – we’ll make sure your center is presented in a positive light. Photos may be cropped, edited for size, or adjusted for light/dark exposure. We also reserve the right to decline a listing or photo.
Will you link to my web site?
Yes. If you include a web address for your center it will be included in the story with a link. We’ll also provide you with a link to your “MyStory” page so you may choose to link to it from your site if you would like to. If you don’t have a web site that's okay too – we will still publish your MyStory page on our site.
