CRAFTS Childcare App Parent Communication

Keep Parents Informed

Parents love to hear about their children and we help you communicate observations about children easier.  Create easy to use custom templates to communicate incidents, daily activity, development, food intake, or whatever best suits your program.

Make Childcare Administration Easier

We help you easily offer parents online childcare registration and waitlisting.  Your program doesn't even need a website to offer this feature to parents.  You can optionally integrate this directly into your website if you have one.  Click Join Waitlist or Register for Childcare to demo the possibilities yourself.

CRAFTS Online Registration
CRAFTS Pre-Authorized Debit

Collect Childcare Fees Easier

Parents generally expect convenience.  They often want things such as payments done accurately, and as easy as possible.  Offer Pre-Authorized Debits and withdraw childcare fees directly from parent bank accounts.  This reduces your workload by eliminating bank visits and automatically updating parent balances.

Parents love getting updates easily
