To create a Child Care site, follow the steps below:
- Point to Child Care.
- Select Sites.
- Select Add Site.
- Complete the New Child Care Site form.
- Select Create.
Tip: Preschool programs using the Child Care module typically create one site per class, where Child Care programs may create a site with multiple sections based on before and after school options.
Tip: Maximum Participants sets a flag for administrative users to see where the participant numbers are at in order to prevent too many contracts from being approved. This flag does not prohibit staff to approve over this number, nor does it keep parents from registering. Individual sites can be turned off when full, or online instruction text can be added to alert parents certain sections are full.
Modifying Start/End Dates
In some cases, you may need to modify the start or end date of a Child Care Site (i.e., extending a school year season or pushing back start date of a summer season). The system will automatically update the start or end date for existing contracts for that Site if the contract reflects the same original start date or end date as the Site. If the start date or end date of the contract is off by a day or more (i.e. consistent schedule that ends earlier than the last end date of the site), those contracts would need to be manually modified by an Administrative user to reflect the new start or end date.
