“Excellent Program and Customer Service” I have had no problems with this program. It is excellent and always adding more features. The customer service is the best!

It’s got all the bells and whistles yet maintains a clean and uncomplicated design. We actually tried going with a competitor after issues with Stripe and dealing with Procare’s messaging system and came back after using the other one for 2 months. Procare truly is so user friendly and if I ever have a question, I get a response within the hour. It’s good to be home!
“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 made billing and keeping track of daycare attendance so much easier. Instead of taking three hours to complete weekly billing, I am able to more accurately finish it in less than 20 minutes. Parents are able to more easily check their child in and out. Teachers are also more easily able to keep track of who is present and who is absent that day.

Tuition Express provides seamless interaction between Procare Select and billing. The system is easy for my staff and our parents to use. As a business owner, it is great to be able to access the software remotely via the cloud. In addition, the reports are easy to pull and easy to understand.
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, my experience with Tuition Express has been positive. The customer service has been excellent as well as the product and results. Tuition Express is easy to use and provides a great ROI! It helped our early care and education centers ensure that tuition was billed on time, the correct tuition amount was billed, that tuition was collected on time, and that proper late fees and discounts were assessed. This made budgeting and auditing so much easier. Parents appreciated the convenience of being able to make tuition payments with a credit card and being able to pay remotely.
“Great as a parent or director”
Overall, if you’re looking for a central place to organize all the many things that come with childcare, this is the best product on the market that I’m aware of.
I first used Procare as a parent in my infant son’s childcare center. It was easy to check him in and out by having an ID and password number and I loved that I could see my balance on our account and get messages from the director of the childcare center. When I took over at a different center as the director, I was pleased to see they used the same program. Additionally, this center increased the ease of checking in and out by having a fingerprint scanner for parents to check students out and for employees to clock in/out. As a director I could easily see which students were there on the home page and the home page was customizable to what I wanted to see (ex. upcoming staff/child birthdays, children currently checked in, children recently checked in/out etc.). There is another tab where detailed children information is easily inputted and organized as well as an employee tab. I really haven’t seen anything else within childcare systems that has as many options and functions as Procare.
We enjoy how easy the program is to use. We have several seasoned teachers who are not as familiar with technology, and they were apprehensive about using the app at first. However, they find the app easy to use which made the transition into everyday use of the app a breeze.
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!

“Happy Customer!” I love how easy it is to communicate daily activities to families. I am happy being able to send invoices and yearly statements to families and how Procare keeps track making life a lot easier. The Newsletter templates are a bonus too! 🙂
“We love it!”
It’s easy for all of us, although there are many options it is quick and everyone caught on easily. It’s been awesome having the accounting pretty much done for me because all the numbers are right there!
I like how easy it is to use, I like how everything is connected. We have cloud storage so it’s so convenient to access from anywhere! It’s nice that the employee’s information is kept in the same place as everything else. There are so many great features that I can’t pick a favorite, but I do love being able to see daily numbers etc. The billing is smooth.
“Overall the app is excellent. Easier than storing paperwork”
I can communicate with parents using a mass email or text. Parents are also able to see that they are signing out the correct child because the picture is displayed.
We have used Procare since 1996 and tried 2 other systems prior to finding out more about Procare through use of their demo. We’ve upgraded each version which has enhanced services each time. The sales and technical support personnel are very informative, friendly, and accessible. We also use Tuition Express which makes collections a breeze. Additionally, we use the key-less entry system for enhanced security. Procare has kept up with the needs of families and childcare center management by making these additional options.
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.
