Credit Card Processing for Child Care

Choose Canada First and you can substantially reduce your credit card processing fees – to as low as 1.18 % for child care and day care centres.The business of daycare has undergone a seismic shift in the past few decades. Child care centres were often run out of private homes and took care of a few children at a time. The integration of preschools with infant care facilities created more “one stop” businesses where kids moved up from birth to pre-kindergarten in the same building. Every week, parents may be ponying up a couple of hundred dollars to cover the cost of childcare. For some time, the cost of preschool was paid for by cash or cheque, but credit card machines have found their way into the child care environment.

As the cost of preschool care has steadily increased, accepting payments made by cash or cheque has become less attractive and the need for cost effective credit card processing has become more necessary.

Unfortunately, like many daycare centres and preschools, you may be overpaying for your credit card processing. For example, a facility charging $250 a week for infant care, and paying 2.75% to a credit card processor, is paying over $27.50 per month to the processing company for one child. The ability to trim this transaction expense, multiplied by all children cared for, and paid for by debit and credit cards, equals more money for necessities like staff, supplies, and profits.
