Perfect for Child Care Operations
Child Care and Day Care Rostering
Childcare employee rostering refers to the process of creating schedules for employees in a childcare centre or daycare facility.
It involves determining the working hours, shifts, and responsibilities of childcare staff to ensure adequate coverage and smooth operation of the centre while meeting regulatory requirements such as child-to-employee ratios and employee award compliance.

Perfect Staff Scheduling for Child Care
RosterElf's scheduling tool makes planning and communicating childcare or daycare work rosters easy.
Choose to build and publish rosters using our cloud-based platform or our free range of iOS and Android apps while on the go.
Always create rosters with the right mix of skill sets by considering operational requirements, and use our roster template system to drive consistency in worker-to-child interaction.
Our 'Perfect Match' algorithm will automatically suggest the most suitable employees for each shift, considering a range of data, including employee leave, shift conflicts, availability to work, qualifications and labour cost.
Employees Self Clock-in-out
Say goodbye to paper timesheets or clunky time card systems with RosterElf's digital time and attendance apps.
Employees can self-clock in and out for shifts at your childcare using either a tablet kiosk or smartphones, which managers can then review and approve during payroll.
Ensure compliance and minimise time theft by implementing RosterElf's smart digital time and attendance solution in your childcare operation.
Process payroll with one click
With RosterElf’s seamless payroll integration, you can automatically calculate Children’s Services awards and eliminate manually entering data.
