DaycareWaitlist overview

What is DaycareWaitlist?

DaycareWaitlist is a cloud-based solution, which helps preschools, at-home day cares, and childcare centers automate processes for organizing official data, including contact details, family members, guardians as well as additional notes. It lets users send emails to parents and clients to keep them updated with the latest changes in waiting lists.

Key features of DaycareWaitlist include application management, daily reports, membership database, self check-in and prioritization. It allows institutions to arrange lists in pre-defined orders and modify them according to priorities and business requirements. The application provides a portal for parents to confirm or remove their subscriptions from waiting lists to facilitate customer experience. Plus, it offers online forms for parents to submit information about contacts, candidates, siblings and more, streamlining the admission process.

DaycareWaitlist’s dashboard enables organizations to visualize all student data and gain insights into their performance as well as waiting timelines. Users can access the tool from mobile devices to view all updates and information about their children and waiting status, improving client engagement.

Ease of access for future enrollment planning

Pros
That I can see in the future! This helps me work on rolls for next year so that we can plan for classes early and I can project the next year's enrollment schedule.

Cons
I do not like the new format as much as I liked the old one. I am getting accustomed to the new look, but it is not as simple. Before, everything was bold with straight columns and rows - easy to see everything. Now, my list looks all haphazard, woppy-jawed and flippity- floppity. I have a screenshot of the way it used to be and the look of the program today, even if it might have more capabilities, makes my eyes confused. I will be happy to send you the pictures of what I am talking about - it just is a visual thing for me. I might be the only one who feels this way, but when I get into our waiting list, I spend more than an hour working in it and the larger, simple font was easier to read and the straight lines were pleasing to the eye.

Makes it easier to manage waitlist and the site can be accessed anywhere.

Pros
1. User friendly 2. Has the option to specify priorities and see the future 3. Great response time when I contacted them about getting a receipt 4. A good BASIC software

Cons
1. The character limit under "Notes" 2. There's no space if you want to separate information and create another line/paragraph. 3. No boxes to enter the child's gender, address and parents' employment information 4. On the recently updated version, the font is smaller so it is kind of difficult and confusing to look at each child's information. 4. Date of Birth/Due Date is not showing on the main page, but it has AGE, ADDED and REQUESTED 5. When using the search box, there are times when you just have to type a part of a name and it pulls up results, and there are times when it doesn't give you any result unless you type the exact full name. 6. Downloading information of JUST a certain age group, birth month/year and/or email addresses is not possible 7. The reminder email is good, however, it mostly goes to spam or parents ignore it because they do not know the sender

Pros
Saw this and instantly thought how great it would be to keep me organized and be able to better help me figure out who is on the waiting list

Cons
Like anything I'm sure this program isn't perfect but at least it will help me stay organized and be able to get kids in faster

DaycareWaitlist has been a very helpful resource for our busy small office!

Used daily for 1-2 years

Pros
I like the fact that students name are automatically moved up as they age and it puts them in the order they were put on the list. I also like that it will send an e-mail reminder to the families that they are still on the waiting list.

Cons
I would like to see the whole family when I click on a child's name; It would make it easier when calling the parent to notify them.

Response from DaycareWaitlist


Christina, to view the family instead of only the child information, click the family button. If you have any further issues feel free to contact us: https://www.daycarewaitlist.com/main/home/contact

Saves time Organized Easy to maintain Nothing to download Can view from my phone when away from the office

Pros
No notebook to keep track of. My assistant and I can easily add to the list as people request to be added. The automatic email reminders to parents keep us in touch with the waitlist family. Organized and simple to use. Great tool to stay organized and save time.

Cons
When removing a family because they have moved out of our area, there is no option to choose this. Would like to have that added.
