eCollect understands that the sustainability of your centre and its ability to provide a high quality service needs to remain paramount.
We receive regular feedback from both private and not-for-profit child care centres that asking parents to pay their childcare fees can be a difficult and sensitive issue for their educators and administration staff. These clients tell us that they never want to exclude a child from care for non-payment of fees and often the chat with a parent can be an emotionally charged and a challenging task to fulfil.
eCollect understands your industry. Our initial approaches to your parents are gentle and understanding. We start by assuming that the parents want to pay but have difficulties in doing so.
Where this is the case, eCollect will work through payment issues with the parents. We know about new and constantly changing subsidies/schemes to assist parents in completing the tasks that may be necessary to allow them access to government rebates.
Where we see the capacity to pay but an unjustified reluctance to so, eCollect can applying a more intensive debt collection strategy including locating a parent who has left your centre and contact has been lost and convincing reluctant parents to set up payment plans. eCollect staff have specialised skill and experience in dealing with childcare debts.
