Make managing wait lists convenient for agencies, child care providers, & families.
Finding quality child care continues to be a huge hurdle for families. Agencies and child care providers receive daily phone calls from those looking for subsidized child care slots. Our solution allows families to submit applications securely, online, on their own time. It also automatically determines family subsidy eligibility for agencies and child care providers — all within a single web-based platform.
KinderWait interfaces with CenterTrack, KinderSystems’ comprehensive online child care management solution. It also integrates with KinderTrack, KinderSystems’ complete child care subsidy management solution. Thanks to these integrations, information collected in KinderWait seamlessly carries over into your KinderSystems solution once families move from the waiting list into one of your programs.

Families can log onto KinderWait by registering with their regional or state agency. They complete their eligibility information and indicate the programs they are interested in, and that information is store within your KinderSystems solution. Families can enter their initial applications and maintain and update their application data at their convenience. Agencies using the system can always monitor client and applicant access and review changes and perform searches by zip code, family name, program type, and more.
