Offer a Better Parent Portal

Empowering parents with a Parent Portal reduces the workload of childcare staff. Parents can download tax Receipts, statements, and make changes to their family profile without the additional workload on staff.

Stop Tracking on Paper

Get better tracking on who's coming and going. Not only can parents sign their children in and out with a PIN, staff can sign in as for better tracking of work hours.

Insist on ePayments

Using ePayments like EFT means getting paid on time, no bank trips, no handling, cash or cheques, and no more worry about losing or misplacing payment. Even better, accounts balances are automatically updated.
