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.

We love this program. It provides us with one place to quickly find out so much information. Many things are pre-programed, but you can personalize it yourself or request assistance from a fantastic customer service person. This makes my job so much easier, especially with continual changes to State Day Care Licensing regulations.

We mainly use the program for attendance tracking and collecting payments. They provide outstanding features for both functions. I can’t say enough about their support. If you have questions or run into a situation you’re not sure how to handle they are quickly resolved by talking with a live person (my preference) or by e-mail. Their support staff is outstanding and patient (not that I’ve asked any dumb questions :)!

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.

Collections and Tuition Express has been a blessing. Almost EVERY parent has been impressed with the idea that we can take a debit or credit card. They can also login in the evenings after they’ve taken care of their families. They can pay their bill or check on tomorrow’s schedule. It’s made our life easier.

I love its fluidity. It can grow with us and help us grow. It can be my checks and balances so that I will always be accountable to my staff, my parents and my board. I can organize and create clear reports in ways I wasn’t able to do previously. Amazing stuff really.

Using Procare in our after-school program has been beneficial in the following ways: – It’s allowed us to ensure that our staff to participant ratios are always met – It’s allowed us to better know each and every one of our kids. We see over 120 children each week. The program allows us to more easily remember faces and names, siblings and parents! – It’s given us peace of mind knowing that student emergency information is right on hand if needed. – It’s given us one single platform to manage participant attendance and volunteer attendance. – It’s allowed us to use one platform to manage our participation in the CACFP program and complete our meal tracking in one, easy place. – It’s given us the ability to quickly pull student and program data for grant writing purposes and for logistics. For example, in seconds we were able to get a list of student names and addresses for our new van driver, making pick up a breeze.

Our before- and after-school care service has realized a marked improvement in percentage of payments received due to the invoicing and statement features of Procare. We are much better able to communicate about delinquent accounts and show parents and caregivers their records so that confusion or misunderstanding are eliminated and positive and cooperative customer relations are preserved.

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!

We enjoy how easy the program is to use. We have several seasoned teachers who are not as familiar with technology, and they were apprehensive about using the app at first. However, they find the app easy to use which made the transition into every day use of the app a breeze.
