Pros

The meal tracking and tuition express are two of my favorite things about procare. I love that trainings are offered and the tech support is amazing.

TU

Tammy U.

This product has been amazing and customer service/support has been reliable and helpful as I learned the system. The tutorials are fabulous and I would highly recommend the software.

SF

Shannon F.

The best thing about Procare is that it is user friendly. The support website is a great tool.

CR

Carole R.

Pros

Childwatch is a great value for the money and is especially great for smaller programs. Each time we had an issue it was very quickly resolved with support from the childwatch team.

LS

Luke S.

The program was very easy to use and get around. The tutorials are a great help.

SG

Sandra G.

The way in which our Agency sponsors CACFP Home Daycare Providers & our own Head Start Centers has changed completely since we have gone with Child Watch; we save a great deal of time & money.

CF

Carla F.

Cons

I haven't found a software that can do it all. To switch we would be trading problems for problems.

CP

Courtney P.

I should be able to create a licensing-compliant registration form for parents, which includes emergency contacts, allergies, medical insurance number, etc. Staff timecards are poorly designed.

CT

Casey T.

It has been having a few glitches lately. It's very frustrating when you can't access your information because server is down.

DA

Deborah A.

Cons

I think the biggest problem that we encountered was on the check in/out interface with parents having issues. Some of these were most likely user errors and some wifi capability issues.

LS

Luke S.

Very poor, not intuitive and wasted my time. I canceled it and they seem not to care at all.

TV

Tom V.

Unfortunately right now childwatch is in the works of providing that. Once its up and running there is no comparison.
