It is so easy to use, especially for a childcare provider with a busy schedule throughout the day. It is the best software out there. I love it.

Tammy W., Child Care Professional

The ease of use is my favorite part of using KidKare. I don’t have a lot of time to do the paperwork side of my family child care business. I love that in seconds I’m done and in compliance with the Food Program.

Tamara E., Family Child Care Provider

This program has saved me time from the old bubble sheets and also the time and cost of snail mail.

Verlynn A., Owner

I have several menus saved, and it is very quick and easy to reuse them and make my weekly plans. I also love the fact that I can use it on my phone, as well.

Terri G., Director

I have several families that split payments between mom and dad, and this program allows for that, as well as billing DCS for the foster kids I sometimes take care of. I like the ability to make different menus for each infant.
