Child Care Central is an approved software system for the early childhood and school-based care sector. The software is designed to make everyday workflows and management of centre-based care services easier.


Commenting, Melissa Hurley, Child Care Manager at the Redbourne Group said that “Our software designers and developers readily interpret what our customers want and need into an easy to use smart technology that helps Directors and staff to manage their centre-based care service.”


“The CCS processing is seamless and gives them full control. All processing of transactions and enrolment data is secure, and we have a good working relationship with all regulators. Our customers know that using Child Care Central works for them, all the time.”


Owned by the Redbourne Group, an Australian company dedicated to providing innovative software as a service to all business, not for profit and government agencies, Child Care Central was the first web-based childcare management solution in Australia and has continued to provide intuitive and innovative support to its customers ever since.  


Rich set of features attracts customers to Child Care Central platform 


With so many important features included as standard in the software, it is not surprising more and more early childhood centres and school-based care services, across Australia are subscribing to Child Care Central every day.


“We have made sure our customers get the best value for money from our CCS software. That’s why we include as much as possible in the Child Care Central software package,” Ms Hurley said, “one feature is electronic forms. An important development that encourages services to move away from pen and paper.”


“From waitlists, bookings, invoicing and receipting and statements our system provides a comprehensive solution that also contains a daily dashboard view of the centre and a complete support portal for team members to access tip sheets, how to guides and training webinars to help them make the most of the platform.”


Parent Portal more secure than social media plus more important features


“It’s so important for families and our customers to know they can trust Child Care Central to safely store their private data and images of their children. The Child Care Central Parent Portal is the secure place where services and educators can share directly with families the everyday activities and news from the centre and children’s photos.”


Other significant features include Online Enrolments which link to a service website where the forms can be customised, Program and Practice for Educators with the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and My Time Our Place (MTOP) curricula all built in, as well as our online payment facility, redPAY which is easy to use and has competitive transactions fees.


The team at Child Care Central are also dedicated to providing the very best quality support. The Child Care Central customer service team are available during business hours, eastern standard time to help with any query or training need.


Unique back of house support offer a key differentiator for Child Care Central


As well as providing a CCS compliant software platform, Child Care Central also offers customers with end to end, tailored back of house support via their services admin team. 


“Our Services Admin team helps centre based care, outside school hours care and occasional care services with their daily tasks from enrolments to bookkeeping which provides them with even more scope to do what they do best – care for and educate children,” Ms Hurley said.
