The administrative demands of Kathy’s small but growing child care center were consuming far too much of the time that she would prefer to spend with her students and teachers. Using a software management system would enable her to put technology to work for her and operate the business end of her center as if she had hired a full-time administrative person.
“Using Jackrabbit Care has made managing my child care much more enjoyable. I find myself with more time to spend in the activities that drew me to open this facility. I spend less time in the administrative cycles of my business but I know more about it than I ever have before.” Kathy Schaeffer, Kathy’s Child Care
SOFTWARE TOOLS HELP CENTER DELIVER NEW LEVEL OF EXCELLENCE | Automation and streamlined processes make record-keeping for amazingly simple and quick. And tools like the Time Clock allow Kathy’s efficiencies to soar even higher. Using Jackrabbit, Kathy transformed her manual record-keeping ordeal from a 4 hour per week time consumer to a simple, quick and automated process.
“I can actually get away from my desk and have meaningful interaction with students, teachers and parents. The feeling of renewed freedom in my own facility is amazing. Improving what we do is definitely data driven. When I know more about my business, I see awesome changes in the way we are able to serve our families. And helping parents to be more knowledgeable about their child’s care gives them more confidence in what we do on a daily basis for them and their child.” Kathy Schaeffer, Kathy’s Child Care
PORTAL OPENS 24/7 WINDOW INTO CHILD’S LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR PARENTS | The parent portal is the part of Jackrabbit that parents actually see and use – and they love it. They can review their child’s activities and progress and control their payments and records at their convenience. The portal is also the parent’s access to online registration which makes it easy and convenient to take care of every registration detail – including payment – so that they never miss their preferred class option or stand in a line to secure it.
“Parents are ecstatic with the online options that Jackrabbit opens up to them. It’s like a window into our center that removes me as the middle man for information. It’s more efficient for everyone!” Kathy Schaeffer, Kathy’s Child Care
REPORTS GIVE OWNERS NEW INSIGHT INTO DATA | As the parent portal is a window into the center for parents, Jackrabbit’s reporting capabilities open a window into the center for the owner. Information that many owners would have never put to use in business analysis and decision making are presented in an easy to comprehend executive dashboard. The dashboard is customizable so that each owner can tailor the view to their preferences. Comprehensive report choices are available for running other reports and criteria can be saved in report templates for reuse.
“Jackrabbit’s reports are a tremendous help to me. I can just glance at my executive dashboard and learn key information about how my facility is running and how my business is progressing. I never had valuable information like this before implementing Jackrabbit.” Kathy Schaeffer, Kathy’s Child Care
