Child Care Accounting for Centers, Programs & Families
Bookkeeping has never been easier with Procare’s comprehensive suite of accounting software tools that help you track and manage family balances, agency payments, and your center’s income and expenses.
Why Use Software for Daycare Bookkeeping & Family Accounting?
Automate child care billing
Automate child care billing to record tuition charges, supply and activity fees, sibling discounts, and co-payments and family discounts in seconds. You can also manage hourly billing, overtime and late pickup fees with ease. Quickly record late payment fees and print notices for all past due accounts. Split fees for divorced parents and separate family co-payments from government agency totals.
Stay up to date on each family’s balance
Track each family’s balance including their history of registration fees, tuition charges, family discounts and daycare payments received.
Keep track of agency payments for subsidized child care
Manage payments from agencies like DHS, DFACS, DCFS, Head Start and similar programs for subsidized child care programs. You’ll know how much is owed from each family and agency, and can easily monitor outstanding balances from prior months.
Simplify paying bills and tracking expenses
Get a full understanding of your company finances and make profitable business decisions based on revenue flow. Maintain a record of your vendors, payment terms and standard expense categories like classroom supplies, maintenance, utilities and rent. Then establish a budget, enter beginning balances, select a fiscal year and reconcile your checkbook. You can even make journal entries for expenses like bank fees or track credit card purchases.
Create reports for all of your accounting needs
Pull reports with a few clicks of your mouse to help you make informed business decisions. Easily compile monthly and year-end tax statements, total revenue and income reports, balance sheets, customer statements and more, giving you a full picture of the health of your child care business.
