Child Care Central, from The Redbourne Group, is a leading Australian child care management system that provides advanced CCSS software along with optional industry-specific administration services.
The solution is purpose-built for Child Care Service providers that deliver Centre Based Care (CBC), Outside School Hours Care (OSHC), Long Day Care (LDC) and Non CCSS Centres. The software supports day-to-day administration tasks with invoicing, CCSS (government rebates) reporting, storing child and parent details, integration with financial reporting, Quality Assurance management and a document management library. Child Care Central is a highly reliable and easy to use software program that can be trusted to process childcare subsidies, bill parents and maintain accurate balances.
Launched in 2007, it was the first web-based CCMS registered software system in Australia for early childhood service providers.
Since then, the Redbourne Group has introduced many updates in line with client requests, technological advances and government requirements, winning awards along the way.
Major 2018 Re-launch
In 2018, the Redbourne Group launched a new web-based version of Child Care Central to coincide with new government Child Care Subsidy (CCS) arrangements that became effective on 2 July 2018.
The core system was significantly updated to provide a better user experience and operate on a new and modern Cloud-based technology platform.
Along with CCS processing, new features included automatic invoicing and payment, enrolment confirmations (CWAs), variable booking schedules, reports, waitlists and immunisation records. It also provides special security and easier log-ins for Multi-site Services. The new software platform included many optional features, such as E-Signatures, more flexible electronic payments, online interactions with parents through a Parental Portal, Program and Practices module and Online Enrolments Module.
The CCS Web software is available through monthly and annual subscription payment plans. The same software platform is available to Family Day Care (FDC) Services via the Redbourne Group’s Harmony Web offering.
