Family Engagement and Communication

Improve and nurture communications with families and instill trust with parents by involving them in their children’s activities. With Procare, centers and schools can share milestones in real time to engage families in their children’s development and help reinforce what is taught in the classroom by providing insights into their children’s curriculum and learning objectives.

Activities and photos can be shared easily and viewable to parents and caregivers via our child care mobile app. And Procare’s eDocument capabilities reduce the administrative time of collecting signatures on important documents.

Procare Empowers Student-Family-Teacher Communication

Procare tracks in-class activities and development milestones that can then be communicated with parents, while connecting those activities to state standards. Procare supports a wide variety of learning methodologies and provides the ability to access and report on developmental milestones.

Communicate and Engage With Families

Share daily activities, videos, photos and milestones with families – keeping them up-to-date on their child and reducing the updates that take place during pick-up.   The Procare child care mobile app is easy to use and simple to install. It provides all this information to the family in real time. Procare also provides the ability to send newsletters and to keep families aware of calendars and upcoming events. Procare can send emails and text messages to families, keeping everyone abreast of activities associated with their child.
