About Procare

Our mission is to simplify childcare operations and create meaningful connections by providing technology, expertise, and unparalleled service. Procare Solutions is the number 1 name in childcare software - used by more than 35,000 childcare businesses across the country. For over 30 years, childcare professionals have looked to Procare to provide real-time information for making critical decisions, maintaining compliance with local and state regulations, and adhering to business best practices.

We make childcare management run smoothly, so that our customers can spend more time focusing on the kiddos, not back office administrative duties.

Our fast-paced, agile environment uses modern technologies where you will help optimize our code and cloud infrastructure for stability and performance.
