Running a daycare is a serious business. You are taking care of people's most precious family member - their children. You need to make the job as easy for yourself as possible.
There are a lot of things to keep track of in a daycare. Billing, schedules, who can pick each child up, birthdays, allergies... the list goes on.
Now, the best solution will depend on how you prefer to keep track of important items. You may prefer to write on paper, or you may prefer to use your PDA or computer to keep track. But it can be a lot of work to keep those files organized.
There is a software solution out there you might want to take a look at. It's called Daycare Manager Pro. Whether you are a small, home based daycare or a larger facility, this software can help you run your business professionally.
This software can help you keep track of much of the important paperwork involved in running a daycare, from the forms you need to give to parents to contact information for each family to overtime billing. And, yes, you can import data into your PDA, so if you aren't right at the computer your information is still right there.
You may think that only large centers need software or can afford it, but this software is quite affordable, as it offers both a small daycare center version and one for larger centers. No worries about spending an excessive amount of money just to make it easier to keep track of all that vital information.
