New Tools for Allegheny Child Care Providers

An update to the Allegheny Child Care Finder Tool added new features for child care providers, including tour scheduling, managing interested families, profile analytics, and more.

What is Allegheny Child Care?

Allegheny Child Care was developed to support the child care needs of families. Through this online tool, parents and caregivers can search for available child care spots at all Allegheny County early learning programs, including after-school, out-of-school, summer camps, and virtual programs.

How does this apply to early learning providers?

If your organization provides child care, after-school, out-of-school, summer, or virtual programming, update your listing as soon as possible on the Allegheny Child Care website. By doing so, you promote and market your programs to families which expedites the process of getting children enrolled.

New Features for Providers

A recent update to Allegheny Child Care added new features to help child care providers fill openings faster. These features include:

    • Tour scheduling:
      Allow families to schedule a tour at your location. Set the time, days of the week, length of the tour, and wait for your tour requests to be sent to your email!
    • Showcasing your enrollment process:
      Families are interested in learning how to enroll in your school. Add any steps and relevant documents so they can take the first steps to enroll.
    • Analytics about your profile performance:
      Have you ever wondered how many families are favoriting or viewing your profile? Now you can view your stats in the overview section. Review the 5-minute video below to learn more.
    • Managing your interested families:
      Once families message you or schedule a tour, they will appear in your interested families list. Don’t have openings right now? That’s no problem. When you do you can refer back to your interested families and message them to see if they’re interested in enrolling.
