Managing Classrooms with Ease
Managing a classroom at a center or school is like running a small business within a business. Classrooms need to be established and staffed, activities and lessons created, milestones tracked, state standards adhered to … and the list goes on. Procare has robust classroom management capabilities that streamline the process of managing classrooms.
Effectively Managing Classrooms and Programs
Procare enables centers and school to better manage classrooms, tracking attendance and any room movement. Adherence to staff-to-child ratios is critical and streamlined reporting provides details on ratio maintenance. Procare also makes it easy for teachers to track child activities, with name-to-face reporting.
Streamlined Lesson Planning
Create a single lesson or a pool of lessons that include milestones, attachments and more. Use lesson categories to help group lesson plans together to make them easy to access. And share lesson plans with families to increase trust and confidence in your center and teachers!
Frameworks, Assessments and Milestones
Most states require the use of learning standards to track developmental milestones, so staff should be aware of the skills that children generally demonstrate when they reach a certain age. Once learning standards have been applied to the system, they can be added to lesson plans to ensure each domain is being covered in the classroom. Add one or multiple milestones and create daily activities to send to parents that connect with ECE state standards. Learning standards are also fully customizable.
Alignment With State and Montessori Standards
State standards are learning and developmental goals specified by each state for what children should know or be able to do by a specified age. Milestones or learning standards allow centers to track the development of a child in a specific area. The Vine Assessments System by Procare Solutions is an early learning assessments framework exclusively available with Procare’s classroom management capabilities. The Vine Assessments framework features clear and detailed terminology that aligns with standards from all 50 states.
Alternatively, Procare also allows providers to access preloaded state standards for all 50 states and Montessori learning, and also supports a wide variety of learning/child-centered methodologies. To ensure the most accurate resources, we have acquired the latest standards on a state-by-state basis. Procare has a process in place to track updates to these standards as states release new or revised versions. When updates occur, we will quickly ensure the new set of standards is applied, however, we will only apply them to schools by request to avoid conflicting data.
Procare’s program functionality enables the ability to define unique program offerings, as well as see the overall center enrollment status. Programs can have start and end dates, rooms to manage physical locations, staff-to-student ratios and a weekly schedule. This capability allows child care providers to make informed decisions and provide greater control over a center’s offerings.
Forecasting Growth with Insights
Insights allows centers to see enrollment capacity in a given room and/or program, as well as identify areas that have open availability. This capability also highlights which offerings need additional staff to retain ratio requirements. Centers will be able to see which programs are in high demand and what availability they have for interested families.
