Automated Child Care Payments Make Life Easier

Choose any combination of electronic payment options to accept at your child care center, daycare or preschool. Every payment, whether initiated by you or by your families, posts automatically to your family accounts and funds appear the very next day. Enjoy seamless integration between our child care payment processing platform and your Procare child care management program. 

Timely Payments Made Anytime or Anywhere

Over HALF of millennial parents have never written a check. Ensure that tuition payments are fast and easy by having families pay online through any computer or mobile device. With Procare child care billing, families can easily access tuition statements and their payment history, as well as set up forms of payment quickly.

Recurring Payments / Electronic Fund Transfers (EFT) 

Take control of your tuition collection by initiating recurring payments on a weekly or monthly basis, or on a schedule of your choice. Payments transfer from each payer’s bank account or credit card (if applicable) directly to your account with funds made available to you by the next business day. 

Payment at Check-in

Allow families to quickly and easily make payments as they check their children in to your center. Payments are posted directly to the family’s ledger in Procare and receipts are emailed automatically. Procare also offers card readers that are easy to set up and allow your center to accept credit card payments in person.
