KinderTrack can help you manage:
Managing child care subsidy programs poses challenges for administrative staff.
Not only must you regularly track family and provider data, but you are responsible for responding to changing policies, managing daily attendance records, and reconciling subsidy and child care tuition payments each week.

With KinderTrack, you can fulfill these tasks in one secure, streamlined solution, freeing your providers up to focus on the needs of children and their families. You’ll be able to give families a better experience thanks to digital enrollment and eligibility features that allow them to apply for and receive child care more easily.

Simplify with a single online solution.
Child care subsidy programs funded by federal or state programs often don’t fully meet the needs of all eligible families. This makes it difficult to ensure eligible families receive adequate financial support, making managing limited resources challenging for agencies.
KinderTrack gives you a bird’s eye view of your child care subsidy program, thanks to powerful features that integrate together and robust built-in reports that give you easy access to the information you need.

Calculate accurate payments
KinderTrack prevents you from overpaying providers and automatically calculates the subsidy payments your families are eligible to receive. Our solution collects reimbursement rates, regional market data, and rates of each provider, ensuring that reimbursements do not exceed your ceiling.
