Feature: Our New Timeline Report

Whether you “like” Facebook at your child care or daycare center or wish you could “un-like” it, Facebook’s Timeline view of you and your friends lives has become ubiquitous. So much so that when Facebook makes updates to the timeline view, as they are at the time of this post, it causes major ripples in the blogosphere and keeps users on their toes.

Timelines are a very intuitive way to view information. That is why we brought our own take on a timeline for Child Care Center Management to BumbleBee. With our timeline report, for each classroom, you can see when children are coming and when children are going and how many spots will remain. This is an extremely effective way of visualizing your enrollment through time. It will also give you the ability to quickly see, by age-group, when a spot is going to open and in which classroom.

With BumbleBee’s Child Care Center Timeline Report, you can see when children are entering and leaving classrooms

BumbleBee has a built in process to help you manage a child’s enrollment at your school. You can mark spots as “Offered” and “Accepted” to keep track of children who will soon start or possibly start the next school year.

Use the timeline report to do the following:

  • Answer families confidently about when spots will open and how many have already been committed.
  • Track families that have accepted offers for future dates.
  • View transitions for current students.
  • Manage transitions of children after they have left their current room.
  • See openings by day of the week if you have flexible schedules.

It’s easy to get your timeline to populate. Simply add start and end dates for each of your children (you can do this en masse with our bulk update features).

Have you used the timeline (BumbleBee Childcare Software’s or Facebook’s)? What do you think?
