kidKare for home daycare

2018-12-20

keeps reports on time. Easy access to kids records Easy select and click on foods, just love the drop down food list provided.

Pros

reminders that it has makes it so fail proof. if I have a question the help section has always helped me find an answer quickly. best feature a tap of the button and your monthly report is at your sponsors no more papers, postage worries and wondering if it made it there in time for payment.

Cons

still looking for that one. really only thing i could suggest is a notification if a child's enrollment is about to expire so we would be sure to get renewals in on time,

electronic reporting to CACFP

Pros

Web based application you can access from any device, simple data entry Nothing else to say good about this product, however, there aren't enough characters in the con category

Once switched you quickly find that multiple features we had access to in Minute Menu were no longer available.

Life saver!!

2018-12-08

I look forward to better budgeting with business expenses because I'm able to view and run reports much faster than flipping through pages of data. Very pleased!

Pros

I love the reports I'll be able to run at the end of the year for taxes, and parents.

Cons

I offer a limited number of vacation days that the parent can earn and in turn get a free week in the year but no options for me to track these days being used.

Once it "upgraded" in July 2017, lots of lock outs, deleted info, loss of some features.

2018-01-22

Tax reports seemed to remain accurate

Pros

This program had a lot of potential. Sounded like it would have everything I needed since it had accounting and nutrition in the same program.

Cons

Invoice were randomly deleted and reinstalled, double payments, lost some report capabilities, customer service was hard to get ahold of and frequently unhelpful.

I have been effectively using this sense july and I have not had really any issues with it.

Pros

This software has made it easier on my books and keeping track of times and meals that I have to keep recorded for tax purposes.

If I could change anything it would be that it shows you a report of your weeks once entered.

Helpful Additions

2018-12-20

I would like an in service or training on the options concerning tax record keeping, money and space, and daily record keeping. Management skills would be so much better if I made use of these management tools.

Pros

The software is easy to work through as information is added or deleted to a child's profile, The software allows easy access to profiles, meal status, claim reviews and updates, The message board and file is very helpful to review old and new information, and The reminders as post are made is very helpful for meal entries.

Cons

Concern: It may be the user; however, I have not been able to send messages via the software to the provider .

I love this software, have used it and the previous one that it took over, Minute Menu.

Pros

I love how it tracks my expenses and the reports it generates, even birthday lists!

With the ability to run reports we can see any issues or concerns long before they become an issue.

Pros

I think for the attendance, reports, food tracking are all amazing.

Cons

You can't always see the drop down boxes options. To have a scroll option would be great and sometimes the words used don't match what I am putting in.

Didn't want to make the change.

2018-12-13

With KidKare I am able to produce menu's, accounting reports, financial reports, parents statements, and the best thing yet detail reports for my tax consultant which I use to do on Excel.

Pros

Yes there were some glitches in the beginning, but customer service was dead on it and cleared problems asap.

Cons

When printing a menu I have too much wasted white space even after clicking on the arrow to hide the drop-down questions of which report to print.

KidCare is a niche service, a bit expensive but isnt it always about you get what you pay for!

Pros

They have an excellent Food Program management system!

Their dashboard is quite generic, I wish we could white label it too.
