My job is so much easier now that we have Procare and Tuition Express! We are able to run our school more efficiently and professionally. I can’t believe we operated so long without it!
Tonnya | Administrative Assistant
Most of all, I am not posting payments, writing out deposits, driving to the bank all the time, which gives me extra time for other responsibilities. I love the fact that the receipts are emailed, it saves on paper. My parents LOVE the emailed receipts, how fast they can check out their children, swipe their card, and be done!
I rarely make deposits any more. At first we had only a few parents sign up for Tuition Express, but now I only have maybe 2 payments a week that I need to deposit. Sometimes we go a week to 2 weeks without a payment by check or cash. It gives me time to focus on other things.
I love this software. It helps me keep parents notified without having to print stuff out for them. They are loving it and like seeing when the child naps and etc in their notifications throughout the day.
Overall it is a good program. I like the ease of parents signing in and out, the fact that I can get to all functions via the app on my phone, the variety of capabilities within the software (newsletter, messaging, photos, etc). Overall it is a program we enjoy. It has many functions available. Any glitches are quickly fixed by support at Procare.
Our tuition fees are paid on time. We do not have to track clients down for payment. Most of them use the ACH option or pay from their phones.
There is nothing that I don’t like about Tuition Express. It has made my job so much easier. It has made the weekly collection of tuition seamless. We use ProCare Cloud as well and our parents even have the option to pay from their phones.
I love this program. I use Procare, not only to communicate well with parents, but also to keep track of everything required by the state to be a licensed daycare! I really like how easy I can file family information and keep records that are required for daycare licensing.

We mainly use the program for attendance tracking and collecting payments. They provide outstanding features for both functions. I can’t say enough about their support. If you have questions or run into a situation you’re not sure how to handle, they are quickly resolved by talking with a live person (my preference) or by email. Their support staff is outstanding and patient!

“We use Tuition Express to process our weekly income and love it!”
Tuition Express saves time and man hours. It is flawless in helping us acquire payment from each of our families. The creators and software managers at Tuition Express really know the world of Learning Centers and have created and maintained an effective tool for helping us charge for enrollment, registration, weekly tuition and other miscellaneous charges in a manner that is time effective and thorough. The customer service is top notch!
“Procare has saved me invaluable time. It is easy to use and affordable” It saves me a tremendous amount of time. I like the billing options. I inherited a paper system of writing down when children entered and left the childcare. I had to add up hours and generate bills. I love the digital sign in and invoicing system.
Using Procare in our after-school program has been beneficial in the following ways: It’s allowed us to ensure that our staff to participant ratios are always met . It’s allowed us to better know each and every one of our kids. We see over 120 children each week. The program allows us to more easily remember faces and names, siblings and parents! It’s given us peace of mind knowing that student emergency information is right on hand if needed. It’s given us one single platform to manage participant attendance and volunteer attendance. It’s allowed us to use one platform to manage our participation in the CACFP program and complete our meal tracking in one, easy place. It’s given us the ability to quickly pull student and program data for grant writing purposes and for logistics. For example, in seconds we were able to get a list of student names and addresses for our new van driver, making pick-up a breeze.
Overall I love the easy access to all the help. Anything I may not understand how to do I can quickly search and find an explanation on how to complete the steps. Also the help desk is very quick to respond via email or telephone with answers and even help walk me through steps.
I love the organization of having all products in the same program window. The set up and implementation was very simple. You could make things as simple or complex as you need. Tuition Express has made the process for payments of tuition the smoothest it has ever been. Parents love going to the portal to make payments at their convenience.
“Good child/family management program”
My experience has been very good. We were very hesitant after having a bad experience with a program that was recommended after our old program was discontinued. However, Procare was very helpful and suited our needs better.
It was very easy to set up and is easy to use. It has some great features our previous program did not have. Their support website is great with very useful videos if you’re stuck on something or can’t figure out how to do so. I used our previous program for 30 years and I was very unsure about starting something new, however, Procare made it very easy as most features were the same or similar.
We’ve worked hard to earn our status as the most recommended Child Care Management System, an honor we’ve held since 1992.
