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.

Thank you for your expert, patient and very pleasant help with our additions to Procare software last week. I can say that everyone I have had the pleasure to deal with in this transition were top notch people. All of you worked well with me and helped me better understand the new software. I’m sure you haven’t heard the last of me and I look forward to your team’s support in the future.
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.
I love using this product. I use it daily to communicate with my parents. My parents love it too
It is seamless and Procare is constantly making updates and upgrades. This software isn’t only for large centers. I am an in-home child care and I feel the ease and usefulness of this product is outstanding. It really helps reduce time spent on things that I would have to do after hours. A lot of times…I can grab my phone and update a parent’s account while I am thinking about it. I am excited about the menu enhancement made. I plan to use that weekly. Procare is always making great progress. Procare listens as well. I made a suggestion and in a short amount of time they made it happen. Thank you Procare for your constant support of my small business.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Procare does a lot for our center! We also love how there are additional features you can add on. It is great for tracking families, payments, and even adding activities.

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!
“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.
Teachers love the features it offers to communicate with parents!! When a new parent starts we try to send a picture to the parent of that child engaged in an activity. Great communication tool when a parent picks up and knows something their child did in the room!! The ability to keep a more accurate account of the children has helped with ratios.
The thing I like the most about this software is the amount of time I get back in my day from the simplistic and shorter routines brought about by the features of Procare. I don’t have to spend hours on billing and chasing money now that we use tuition express. I am able to import directly from our wait list software to the Procare software so I am not keying client information twice! The tax season is less of a hassle when producing their tax statements. This software is priceless when you think about what you are getting for your money. I would be lost without it.
