iCare Legacy

iCare Legacy is Orgamation Technologies’ old childcare management software, which has been running in centers since 1998. It is cloud-based and it includes: Parent and teacher portals. But, its Admin features use old Windows technology, which is why we built a new and more efficient iCare childcare management software.

At the moment, the new software is missing just two features – Drop-in POS and Afterschool Monthly Scheduler. These features will be added soon.

Click on the button below for information about the legacy product, or if you are interested in Drop-in POS or the Afterschool Monthly Scheduler.
