Pros: Free

Cons: Leaves a lot to be desired. Needs some work before it will be truly useful.

Overall: Tried the free version and it worked well for what it was. When I decided to try the paid version it was a lot of issues. Found that data was lost often and did not work on my Mac. Ended up wasting a lot of time entering info again and again and went back to the free version. Soon after decided to look into other options. Overall feeling was, there are a lot of good things that could happen with the program if the TLC was put into it.

Free version really nice, paid version not so much

Comments: The stand alone program works fine and I love that it is free. It worked so well I decided to try the web version for a month. I am so very glad I only ordered one month. It never worked. I emailed and called many many times. I only received two call backs and she said she had no idea what the problem was. It never worded, not one day. They kept my money even after requesting a refund and I haven't heard from them since. I am so happy I didn't order a full year.

Comments: Easy to setup and use, ALL the features you want and need for just pennies!! The interface looks great and professionally designed, but easy to navigate. Short video tutorials to guide you through each section of the software. Desktop-only version is actually free. Member-version is only 5 bucks a month and does not lack anything!!! The best $60 anyone in the child care business could spend!! Definitely worth every penny, and then some!!

Comments: This program is pretty easy to set up and generally easy to use (you may need to play around though) It looks great and if you have a set fee it is FANTASTIC! They currently keep adding to it with new updates monthly. Love this program and even though it is based in the US and I am in Australia, it seems to be working well. Customer service is great and any questions I have asked have been answered in under 24hours.

Excellent for our small childcare!

Overall: We have a small childcare, just 7 children, but keeping track of it all was difficult, this makes it soooo simple!
