“We used to use Procare, but found it to be incredibly clunky. We then switched to Sandbox software but found they were not innovating very fast. Now we’ve finally found Famly, and haven’t looked back since.”

David Allen, Head of School

The Ross Preschool (CA)

"We've never looked at any other software and we have absolutely no interest in doing so. If another company said you can have ten years of software for free, we'd tell them we're not interested."

Ben Bausor, Director

Always Growing

"You always get an answer. The support is second to none. We had support from our old provider but we didn't get phone calls or training sessions or feedback… or even answers sometimes!"

Frequently asked questions

What should I look for in childcare management software?

If you own or manage a preschool, daycare or any form of childcare center, childcare management software helps you carry out daily tasks. Sending out staff schedules? Software does that. Accepting ACH and credit/debit card payments? Software does that. Parent engagement, interest forms, child development tracking, and direct messaging? You guess it - software helps with that. It’s all about what kind of childcare management software is best for you and your center.

Is all childcare management software the same?

Definitely not! There are lots of childcare management software options out there. Some only handle finances, some only work on a desktop computer, and some don’t have a parent app. The most important questions to ask yourself is ‘Does this fit the unique way I run my center, is it easy for my staff to use, and will parents like it?’

Can I use Famly to manage multiple daycares or programs?

Yes! Whether you’re a single childcare center or if you manage 6 different preschools, we’ve got options for you. You can switch between organizations inside the app, give staff profiles for each center, and get reports and insights across sites. Famly is childcare management software for centers of all shapes and sizes.

What kind of onboarding do you offer?

Your dedicated account manager will walk you through the basics. We’ve then got specialized onboarding videos, in-app tours - and of course an entire Help Center ready and waiting. But we offer 1-on-1 support whenever and however much you need it - so you have a highly-skilled person ready and waiting to answer any questions you have.

Do you offer customer support?

You bet we do. Get 1-on-1 support with a real human being, who you can reach out to directly with our in-app chat function. And we have 100s of step-by-step guides with screenshots and videos to help you as well. Making sure you’re happy and making the most out of your features is a priority for us, because childcare management software is only as good as its wonderful customers.
