Childcare Management Software
Only Professional and Affordable Solution"
of the most important functions in any childcare management system
is attendance tracking. Attendance tracking keeps a record of
which children are and were at the center. The Childcare Sage
comes with a software timeclock that can run on any computer.
We chose a software timeclock instead of a physical keypad because
of price and functionality. Some of our competitors offer a physical
keypad that you hang on the wall for parents and staff to sign
in and out on. The general cost for the keypad is $500-$700. Using
the keypad made sense years ago when computers cost $2000. Today,
most centers have an older computer they can use for the timeclock,
or they can purchase a suitable new computer for under $300. More
important than price, the real benefit of a software timeclock
is functionality. A physical keypad timeclock is just that, a
piece of hardware that has limited functionality. A software timeclock
is a program that can have unlimited functionality. Below is a
list of functions in our timeclock. Do our competitor's physical
keypads have these functions?
the ability to sign multiple siblings
in/out at one time instead of entering each child's
2) the ability
to batch sign groups of children in and
out instead of using their individual id numbers (for
3) the ability
to leave general messages
such as "Happy Birthday to Johnny" or "Field Trip
4) the ability
to leave messages for selected parents
such as "We still haven't received your field trip permission
5) the ability
to edit timesheets in case
someone forget to sign in or out
6) the ability
to edit timesheets for children but not
for staff, which can be used by staff to sign a child
in/out whose parent forgot to
7) the ability
to not allow specific parents to sign
in but still display a message such as "You cannot
sign in at this time because your bill is past due."
cycle functions that automatically sign children and
staff out at 11:59pm and back in at 12:00am if your center is
open through midnight
course our timeclock can also control an electric door strike
and interface with a
fingerprint scanner to sign in and out.
important feature in our timeclock is that it can run on a computer
not connected to the main childcare sage program or computer.
This is especially useful if the childcare center is in another
building from the childcare office and no network is setup between
have included a lot of functionality into the Childcare Sage for
using the attendance records including: billing, payroll, automatically
marking which meals children had based on when they were at the
center, and reviewing staffing and attendance patterns.
