Relief arrives for early learning services looking to get their admin under control
Childcare Hive, a recently launched early childhood education and care (ECEC) partner that brings together a range of different ECEC support services under one umbrella, has marked the release of its first product stream, Admin Support.
“We are really excited to be in a position to officially launch our Childcare Hive Admin support product,” Elisabeth Ranson, GM Admin Support said.
“The entire premise of the Childcare Hive is to aggregate a range of high quality, specialised support services tailored to the unique needs of the ECEC sector that owners and leaders can rely on to help meet their business objectives.”
“In the ever-changing landscape of early childhood education and care, we strive to transform the way ECEC services manage their administrative tasks.”
“With our extensive sector expertise and commitment to becoming an extension of your team, we are more than just a business, we are your partner in success.”
Introducing Childcare Hive Admin Support – a fully customisable needs based solution
Childcare Hive’s Admin Support has one core objective and that is to liberate service leaders from the time consuming, day to day manual admin tasks often referred to as “productivity killers.”
The Childcare Hive Admin Support team are experts in childcare admin, with the ability to identify potential revenue opportunities, ensure compliance, and optimise efficiencies.
“Running an early learning service is not just a business but a labour of love,” Ms Ranson said.
“Today’s ECEC services grapple with an evolving array of challenges. The volume of administrative tasks continues to escalate, compounded by a workforce shortage within the sector. This can lead to a lack of both resources and knowledge when it comes to the completion of essential tasks on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.”
“Childcare Hive is here to provide much-needed relief by offering expert admin support; enabling services to save time and money, streamline processes and optimise their childcare software utilisation.”
Here are just some of the tasks Childcare Hive can help your service with:
- CCS – from creating and submitting new complying written arrangements (CWAs) through to correcting attendance errors and submitting attendances
- Kindy implementation – whether it is setting up funding for a Queensland, NSW or Victorian service, or submitting QKFS forecasts and acquittals and completing any required reporting
- Waitlists and Enrolments – managing waitlists and offers and finalising enrolments for new families as well as processing re-enrolment requests for existing families
- End of year/end of term task completion – including closing rooms, opening rooms, updating fees and/or hours
- Debtor management – following up outstanding debts directly with families and working with you to implement electronic payment solutions
By leveraging their strategic partnership with leading CCMS provider Kidsoft, Childcare Hive Admin Support can meet a wide range of specialist service needs as well as more generic business needs.
“With our flexible approach to packages and projects, and our decades of ECEC experience, it’s clear that Childcare Hive stands out from the pack when it comes to selecting an admin partner for your business,” Ms Ranson said.
The Kidsoft Health Check is an innovative screening tool that includes a thorough review conducted by in house experts of a service’s current administrative tasks processes, with a focus on compliance and revenue.
The review aims to identify opportunities to optimise and improve Services’ processes where necessary to make operations run that bit more smoothly. Succeeding in today’s competitive environment requires going above and beyond and the Kidsoft Health Check supports services to do just that.
Please note you must be a Kidsoft customer to be eligible, offer ends 3 November 2023.
