“We love having everything organized neatly in one place so that we can make informed enrollment decisions. I can't tell you how happy I am to say we no longer use spreadsheets and sticky notes.”

All plans come with these core features:

Online parent application
Parents can fill out and submit an application to join your center's wait list in a matter of minutes. The form is customized with your center's logo and questions are catered to your center's specific needs.
Wait List prioritizations
Set up prioritizations to be captured during the sign up process so that you can quickly rank and filter on wait list submissions. Examples could be giving preference for children of staff or a diversity preference.
Automated communications
You are ultimately in control of all communications, but we've simplified things by setting up triggers for automated emails, such as checking in after a baby's due date and reminders of upcoming tours.
Tour management
All you need to do is set the dates/times of upcoming tours along with the limit on the number of families per tour. Let parents control their booking, rescheduling, or cancelling directly with the software.
Parent portal
Whether a parent wants to update their child's info, schedule preferences, add a second child, take themselves off the wait list, or get back on the wait list, they can manage it directly within the Kiddo app.
Online payments
All debit and credit card payments from parents to the center are handled securely online. Once a month, funds are deposited in your bank account less any per child added fees.

Frequently asked questions

How does Kiddo clean the wait list?

Kiddo is enabled to send routine email check-ins to parents asking if they've found care elsewhere. If they'd like to be taken off the wait list, we will simply archive their submission. You pick the frequency of the check-ins, and we handle the rest.

We already use child care software

The overwhelming feedback we've received from centers is that most child care software products are wide in capability, but do not manage wait lists effectively. Kiddo is intended to complement your current software--not replace it--handling all activities up to a child's enrollment.

Our Center has unique needs

The Kiddo philosophy is to build software that's easy to use yet still allow for flexibility of each center's needs. You want to to give a discounted wait list fee of 38% for low income applicants and give ranking preference to kids with a sibling already at the center? No problem!

Can I import my current wait list?

Absolutely! All we need is your current list, and we will upload it into your application for you. The turnaround is typically in a few hours. Also, any per child fees do not apply to list uploads, only the new kids added from parents signing up.

How do parents get on the wait list?

You will be given a unique Kiddo web address that's branded to your center. Place this link on your website, Facebook page, and anywhere else that parents find you online. Using this link, parents can fill out wait list application, pay a wait list fee, and/or sign up for an upcoming tour.

How about integrations?

We are working on it! By the end of the year, we hope to have integrations with major child care software providers as well as Quickbooks Online.

Join our happy customers

“Our wait list had become unmanageable. We weren't sure which families were still looking for care, and the list felt out of control. Kiddo took care of everything and made my life simple!"

Jenny, Director at Wallingford Child Care
