The Jackrabbit Care mobile app allows for two-way communication between parents and child care educators.

Communicating to parents on payments for your childcare center can sometimes be a hassle, but Jackrabbit Care makes it a breeze. Through the app, childcare owners can empower parents to effortlessly set up and manage their billing information, providing them with a user-friendly and streamlined experience.
With Jackrabbit Care, childcare centers can automate tuition billing, create personalized billing profiles, and generate comprehensive financial reports. This ensures that their parents never miss payment deadlines, eliminating worries about late fees or missed payments. Improving this billing process not only eases the burden of financial transactions but also strengthens communication between childcare providers and parents, fostering a more transparent and efficient relationship.
