Backed by People Who Know and Love the Business of Child Care
Software can seem impersonal, but it’s important to know that there are people behind it, working hard to ensure it makes your jobs easier and more fulfilling. At Procare, we’re comprised of nearly 200 people with backgrounds in child care, education, administration and more – all dedicated to our customers’ success.

At Procare, our six core values are inherent in everything we do. They’re our guideposts for how we do business and how we treat each other:
- Grow together
- Be a driver
- Wear the customer hat
- Elevate one another
- Respect all perspectives
- Keep our promises
“We love it!”
It’s easy for all of us, although there are many options it is quick and everyone caught on easily. It’s been awesome having the accounting pretty much done for me because all the numbers are right there!
I like how easy it is to use, I like how everything is connected. We have cloud storage so it’s so convenient to access from anywhere! It’s nice that the employee’s information is kept in the same place as everything else. There are so many great features that I can’t pick a favorite, but I do love being able to see daily numbers etc. The billing is smooth.
“Great as a parent or director”
Overall, if you’re looking for a central place to organize all the many things that come with childcare, this is the best product on the market that I’m aware of.
I first used Procare as a parent in my infant son’s childcare center. It was easy to check him in and out by having an ID and password number and I loved that I could see my balance on our account and get messages from the director of the childcare center. When I took over at a different center as the director, I was pleased to see they used the same program. Additionally, this center increased the ease of checking in and out by having a fingerprint scanner for parents to check students out and for employees to clock in/out. As a director I could easily see which students were there on the home page and the home page was customizable to what I wanted to see (ex. upcoming staff/child birthdays, children currently checked in, children recently checked in/out etc.). There is another tab where detailed children information is easily inputted and organized as well as an employee tab. I really haven’t seen anything else within childcare systems that has as many options and functions as Procare.
“Good child/family management program”
My experience has been very good. We were very hesitant after having a bad experience with a program that was recommended after our old program was discontinued. However, Procare was very helpful and suited our needs better.
It was very easy to set up and is easy to use. It has some great features our previous program did not have. Their support website is great with very useful videos if you’re stuck on something or can’t figure out how to do so. I used our previous program for 30 years and I was very unsure about starting something new, however, Procare made it very easy as most features were the same or similar.
I love this software. It helps me keep parents notified without having to print stuff out for them. They are loving it and like seeing when the child naps and etc in their notifications throughout the day.
My job is so much easier now that we have Procare and Tuition Express! We are able to run our school more efficiently and professionally. I can’t believe we operated so long without it!
Tonnya | Administrative Assistant
AMAZING! We would have to remind the same families to pay their tuition weekly and now it is all collected automatically.
Tuition Express has made the office more efficient. There is less time spent collecting outstanding tuition balances. The parents have access to their account information around the clock!
I love using this product. I use it daily to communicate with my parents. My parents love it too
It is seamless and Procare is constantly making updates and upgrades. This software isn’t only for large centers. I am an in-home child care and I feel the ease and usefulness of this product is outstanding. It really helps reduce time spent on things that I would have to do after hours. A lot of times…I can grab my phone and update a parent’s account while I am thinking about it. I am excited about the menu enhancement made. I plan to use that weekly. Procare is always making great progress. Procare listens as well. I made a suggestion and in a short amount of time they made it happen. Thank you Procare for your constant support of my small business.
Our tuition fees are paid on time. We do not have to track clients down for payment. Most of them use the ACH option or pay from their phones.
There is nothing that I don’t like about Tuition Express. It has made my job so much easier. It has made the weekly collection of tuition seamless. We use ProCare Cloud as well and our parents even have the option to pay from their phones.
“We use Tuition Express to process our weekly income and love it!”
Tuition Express saves time and man hours. It is flawless in helping us acquire payment from each of our families. The creators and software managers at Tuition Express really know the world of Learning Centers and have created and maintained an effective tool for helping us charge for enrollment, registration, weekly tuition and other miscellaneous charges in a manner that is time effective and thorough. The customer service is top notch!
“Happy Customer!” I love how easy it is to communicate daily activities to families. I am happy being able to send invoices and yearly statements to families and how Procare keeps track making life a lot easier. The Newsletter templates are a bonus too! 🙂
“We are a licensed preschool and childcare facility that has used the software daily for many years.”
Procare’s versatility is extremely impressive. We use this application for students and staff alike as our sign in station and communication tool. This helps us track student and staff attendance down the day and minute which is invaluable to grant reporting, payroll and tuition reimbursements. Procare also has many useful facets for early childhood organizations, such as behavior tracking, immunization records, emergency contacts and other pertinent information. As a Director that is responsible for all billing, income collection, and taxes, one of the most useful and irreplaceable aspects is the Family and Agency Accounting sections as well as Tuition Express. These areas are key to making sure we stay on top of our financial health. I honestly cannot say how phenomenal this software is. The substantial amounts of report types are endless and extremely helpful in all areas of running and producing a professional preschool and child care facility. We are also a two site facility and switching to Procare Cloud has been the best monthly investment.
