Children and families need to be supported by a system of responsive, highquality, accessible and increasingly integrated early years programs and services. The Childcare Connect™ Event Registration & Attendance Manager is a new tool exclusively designed to support service managers in the delivery of services.
The event registry and attendance module is used to electronically create events and electronically collect attendance for each event. The system has a kiosk mode that allows adults attending with their children to register and sign in to the event. Once they register the first time they attend they can use their phone, key tab, sign in card or simply search their name to sign in to the event. The option that they will use to sign in is configurable.
The system is designed to work at a district level, meaning after the adult registers they can sign into any centre program within the district and the system will know who they are. The application processes all required government reporting requirements, which is cumbersome with current manual sign in paper sheets.
The initial registration and sign up process is easy and the time saved on repeat visits by simply scaning a bar code makes the sign-up process simple and very effecient. Collecting addition information about each adult and child give program managers valuable statistics that they can now report on.
The system is configurable and program managers are able to identify the information that they want to collect for their installation. With the system being electronic and collecting email addresses gives the program managers a communication tool that they can use to communicate special events and welcome to the program emails which increase the attendance to events and makes the program more effective.
When creating and setting up events the system allows the administrator to identify if the event is a workshop or seminar or simply just a drop in program. Along with the attendance, center’s are required to report Referral and Protocol/Linkage information that are also recorded and maintained in the system.
