With the Time and Attendance Tracker from Procare Software® it’s easy to see child time card totals at a glance or by running an attendance report for more details. You may even choose whether to view time in hours and minutes or decimal format. Oh and let’s not forget time card rounding – you may select that as well. Continue reading
An efficient way to check many children in and out at once is not to stand on a ladder and adjust the big hands on a clock (see image). A better way is to use a Time and Attendance program from a company that specializes in Daycare Software. This will help you save time and simplify the management of your child care, preschool or similar child-centered business. In this article we’ll show you how the Batch Post Time Card feature of Procare Software® may be used to check children both in and out at the same time.
This is the third in a series of articles about tracking time and attendance of children. The first article called One Pick Up, Many Children and the second article Bus Run Check In may also be of interest. Continue reading

This weekend (Sunday, March 14, 2010) remember to set your clocks ahead one hour. Of course the means you’ll get one less hour of sleep Saturday night, but the bright side is literally brighter. Beginning Sunday evening it will stay light longer. This means you’ll save a bit of electricity by not burning lights as long and, of course, more time for children to enjoy the great outdoors.
The time change can also affect Daycare Software since some functions use the time on your computer, such as a check in computer that runs Time and Attendance Software or a Child Care Time Clock. Most computers will automatically adjust the time for you, but it’s a good idea to double check before families begin checking children in and out Monday morning.
Enjoy the extra late afternoon sunshine and until next time, cheers!
