Bookings and room management made simple.

Instantly know occupancy and availability with each room, each day, helping you ensure full utilisation.

Manage Multiple Guardians

From the one booking screen you are able to see and manage shared guardian care bookings, with distinct labels for each guardian, their name and child’s name together. At a glance you can see which are “Mum’s Days” and “Dad’s Days”.

The bookings are child centric which makes it easier for Services as it’s the child that is in their care, not the parent.

Bookings that will come into effect in future

Forward schedule booking changes

You are able to set up a booking that will come into effect at a set date in the future and automatically end date the current booking. This is a great feature for managing before and after school care during school term that changes into full time care during school holidays.

Long Day Care operators would use this feature to book in a child for more days when they become available in the future.

Rotating Bookings

Easily create rotating bookings based on one, two or more week cycles, often to accommodate shift workers. Or, for example, when care is not required on a recurring day, such as a parent working a 9 day fortnight or a grandparent having the child every second Friday.

Different bookings for Week 1 and Week 2
Multiple child care sessions booked for one day

Create multiple sessions in one day

With Child Care Central you have the flexibility to create multiple care sessions in one day for a child that may or may not be government subsidised.

Bookings integrated with your bus roll

Link a bus pick up or drop off with a child’s booking and have that automatically populate your bus roll each day.

It’s a great and convenient way to know for sure that you have all the children you need to collect and transport on your list.
