CRAFTS Overview

What is CRAFTS?

CRAFTS is a cloud-based Canadian childcare platform that helps Montessori schools, childcare centers, and daycare agencies streamline administrative operations. Parents can utilize the self-service portal to edit the details of family members, view fee schedules, and download tax receipts or statements.

CRAFTS lets agencies monitor check-in/out timings to maintain attendance records and notify parents about upcoming events or critical updates via text reminders. Managers can store children’s immunization details in a centralized database and create personalized accounts for students or employees. CRAFTS also allows administrators to process electronic payments, perform billing operations, and generate automated reports.

CRAFTS enables businesses to track students’ progress and automatically withdraw tuition fees from parents’ bank accounts using pre-authorized debits. Parents can complete online registrations and add multiple members in the user portal, to aid with enrollment processes. Professionals can filter records based on student name, agency location, or class, and send messages to multiple contacts or specific individuals as per requirements.

A versatile program that ticked the boxes

[SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and his team have been incredibly accommodating despite our exacting standards and seemingly impossible demands. CRAFTS is a pretty comprehensive program unlike anything else on the market. It is intuitive and user friendly and once you get your hands on it I can see that you can really do so much; save time, paper and reduce errors.

Transitioning to digital using CRAFTS

I cannot recommend this system and its service team enough. We had to convince our board of directors, executive director and staff that the transition would be worth their time and effort. It absolutely was.

[SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and his team have been incredibly accommodating despite our exacting standards and seemingly impossible demands. CRAFTS is a pretty comprehensive program unlike anything else on the market. It is intuitive and user friendly and once you get your hands on it I can see that you can really do so much; save time, paper and reduce errors.

Pros

I love that this program is cloud based so our home child care providers can access it from anywhere with a computer, tablet or phone. With attendance now in the hands of the parents and providers there is less room for error. The interface is visually attractive and intuitive so the training is easier. We can set reminders for everything so that we don't forget students' birthdays, rate changes or providers' certification renewals. The ability to interface with Bambora to accept EFT payments has been a big help which will certainly cut down on the need for collections.

Cons

Because it is a cloud-based program and not a completely customized program there are a few work-arounds that we have to do in billing. In all fairness though, we have very unique needs that many clients wouldn't require.

I cannot recommend this system and its service team enough. We had to convince our board of directors, executive director and staff that the transition would be worth their time and effort. It absolutely was.

Pros

What we appreciate most about this software was the service that we received from CRAFTS tech team. this was a huge endeavour, to get all of our programs transitioned to an online data management program. CRAFTS took into consideration our licensing requirements, a global pandemic, and every need we discovered, they took it quickly under consideration and made the amendments essential to our program

Cons

The staff login in has been difficult to implement at this time.
