Why choose Jackrabbit Care to run your childcare center

Taking care of children calls for patience, compassion and a great sense of humor. You also need to be organized and efficient. That’s where Jackrabbit Care delivers. You’re great with kids, and we’re great with running childcare centers. We save you time, so you can devote more to what really matters—and that’s providing children with the safe and supportive environment that they need to thrive.

How can Jackrabbit Care save you time as you run your care center more efficiently? So many ways. Just take immunization management as an example. With Jackrabbit Care, you track immunizations online. Alerts show you when students are overdue. You manage immunization-related communications easily. Plus, you manage administrative items like enrollment, check in/out, reporting and more online. It’s all more automatic.

Here are a few other Jackrabbit Care features to consider as you choose childcare center management software:

Expect top-notch support
Jackrabbit offers the biggest and best support team in the industry. We’re there for you during regular business hours. You can reach us by email, web chat or phone call. Our team is committed to responding to every email request within 2 to 4 hours (applies to regular support hours). Plus, you can watch videos that offer step-by-step how-tos. We even have a Jumpstart team to help new users get started with Jackrabbit Care faster.

Barbara Bone of the Child Education Center finds the support with Jackrabbit more than meets her needs. She says: “From day one I had great confidence in my ability to do everything I need to do in Jackrabbit because of the safety net that the excellent support team provides. They have my back when I need a question answered. … It’s excellent support.”

Spend less time managing billing
You and your staff probably spend significant time each month getting billing right. You might offer discounts for multiple children in a family or prepayment. Long-time students might have a lower rate than new arrivals. And you don’t want to forget about late pick-up fees. Manual billing management can be a huge time drain. In fact, the Christ Church Children’s Center used to spend about 30 hours a week managing billing, enrollment and payments for about 100 students. They switched to Jackrabbit Care. Guess what happened. They now spend just 5 hours a week.

Mike Arndt, director of Christ Church Children’s Center, says: “These processes were very time consuming without Jackrabbit … I wouldn’t believe the time savings if I hadn’t experienced it for myself.”

Enjoy life more
Owning a business isn’t a full-time job; it’s usually much more time consuming than that. Many childcare center owners who turn to Jackrabbit find that online center management saves them so much time that that they can devote more energy to what really matters. Basically, you improve your processes and your work/life balance.

Kathy Schaeffer of Kathy’s Child Care says: “Using Jackrabbit Care has made managing my child care much more enjoyable. I find myself with more time to spend on the activities that drew me to open this facility. I spend less time on the administrative cycles of my business, but I know more about it than I ever have before.”

Go online to save money and time
Technology-powered childcare center management doesn’t have to come from desktop software. It’s better to use an online system. There are many disadvantages with desktop software. You have to load, update and manage it yourself. Or you have to pay someone to come to your care center to help. When you have a hardware problem, you have to pay someone to help you address it right away—because all your data is locked inside the desktop computer. With Jackrabbit Care, you work online; we store your data and keep your software updated. You can access your data from a computer or tablet. You’re not tied to a single device.

Cristin Jensen, program director at Central Christian Academy, was happy to say goodbye to the old way, reporting that: “Jackrabbit Care has made managing our day-to-day tasks much easier. I don’t know how we managed with a PC-based system in the past. The system is easy to learn and use – and that says a lot since I’m not very computer savvy.”

Being earth-friendly is budget-friendly
With Jackrabbit Care, you manage your childcare center online. Rather than paper timesheets, you do online check in/out for students and staff. To communicate with parents, you turn to email instead of regular mail. You use and buy less paper. Plus, you spend less on postage. Going paperless with Jackrabbit Care helps the environment and your budget.

Angie Dutch, founder and CEO of the APEC Learning Center, explains: “Jackrabbit Care is the reason that we can be paperless. We save time, money and space. Parents love the online options, and we’re kinder to the environment. Jackrabbit Care’s reports also make it easy for me to quickly pull reports that are required to maintain some of our location’s childcare subsidies.”
