As a teacher I’m always encouraging my young learners to try new things, explore, experiment, get messy and make mistakes. It’s a lesson I do my best to model for them. For me technology is where I find I’m definitely challenged, but ultimately rewarded when I push myself to engage.
I continually find today’s ever changing technology continues to allow new ways to support the children and families here – social media, Seesaw’s eportfolios or credit card payments.
In 2015, I made the decision to accept credit cards for payment. After researching pros and cons of options and the companies offering processing of credit card payment, I chose Square and have been happy with that choice. From all feedback it has been a positive for families here too.
Trying to answer a question that has recently arisen again, I decided to try out another avenue Square offers – so now there is a Country Fun Child Care store online.
This store has 4 products: full-time care, part-time care, Sibling care and parcel care. Prices are set, and there is a no return policy in place.
Just because it’s available, free and easy to set-up, one might ask “What’s the value of a store for a family child care?”…….. hm………. maybe purchases of care being given as gifts………..
We’ll find out over time.
