We are building a centralised, online child care wait list management system, that provides a marketplace for vacancies. The system also delivers analytics to both parents and child care centres, on metrics such as projected wait times and placement progression.
For parents, the system will::
- Allow parents to sign up to multiple child care centres at one time.
- Allow parents visibility of their progress on a wait list.
- Allow parents to be notified of openings from child care centres, not only from those they have pre-selected, but by nearby child care centres that they may not have previously considered.
For child care centres, the system will::
- Provide an up-to-date view of demand from parents on a wait list, that reflects changes in circumstance (e.g. a child becoming older while waiting on a list).
- Provide an easier way to receive applications from parents, and to manage these applications centrally.
- Provide an ability to issue vacancy alerts to prospective parents.
