Childcare Solutions

Right educator, in the right place, at the right time, everytime.

Childcare centres optimising their rosters with Daitum

Minimise overtime, maximise staff utilisation, increase profitability

To say that running a childcare centre is complex is an understatement: providing the best care for the attending children while also looking after the needs of centre staff is no easy feat given the simultaneous requirements of compliance and managing labour costs. All things considered, having the right staff at the right time in the right room is a challenge worthy a powerful solution.

Daitum’s Rostering for Childcare combines the power of advanced AI with a deep understanding of childcare. It has been crafted to provide a solution that specifically caters to the needs and challenges of childcare centres. By providing optimised rosters for centre managers Daitum drastically reduces the time spent creating rosters, and eliminates the guesswork involved in managing staff ratios across the day. This gives your educators more time to focus on quality of service rather than worrying about compliance all the while keeping labour costs low.

Tangible Results


Honouring the required children to educator ratios across all age groups is paramount in childcare to not only comply with government regulation but also to offer the best possible care for the children. Daitum produces fully compliant rosters that even consider break coverage and programming time to ensure staff can perform at their best


Labour costs make up most of a childcare centre’s operating budget – money that could be re-invested to improve facilities, staff wellbeing or open new centres. Daitum minimises the number and length of shifts rostered by looking at planned child attendance, child arrival times, staff availability and qualifications, programming time requirements and the need for breaks – all the while being fully compliant at all times.


Rostering is typically done by the centre manager, on top of all their other responsibilities and often without any formal training. It is a tedious and time-consuming task that takes away from other, more value-add activities. Daitum streamlines the rostering process and produces a highly efficient roster in a fraction of the time.
