Welcome
 
Welcome to TICAedu the first National Childcare Risk Management System for Debt Prevention, Protection and Recovery. Our service will provide your centre with a Risk Management System that can help establish procedures to ensure regular payments of fees, thus improving cash flow.

TICAedu has been developed by TICA Default Tenancy Control P/L, which for over two decades has successfully run the same system for the real estate industry which has seen rental arrears decrease dramatically. TICA has become the forerunner in Risk Management Systems within the real estate industry therefore providing you with the assurance that you are dealing with a well established, trusted successful company.

Over recent years the increasing problem of families incurring childcare debt has led to the childcare industry finding themselves financial victims of the actions of that small group of individuals who leave a centre owing money intentionally.

The impact of being listed on the TICAedu database will stop individuals who intentionally do the wrong thing and look for care elsewhere, while also providing a motivation to existing families to maintain a good reference with you.
TICAedu is leading the way with a National Childcare Risk Management System.

More than just a database, the TICAedu systems allow you:
  • Low cost membership fees with no enquiry fees.
  • Add parents/guardians who you want to provide a reference on.
  • Screen parents through the TICAedu national database and check if you can make contact with another childcare professional to obtain a reference on a new enrolling parent.
  • Your very own online Childcare Risk Management System for Debt Prevention, Protection and Recovery, that you don't need to download or install onto your computer.
  • Check where an individual has previously applied for Childcare.
  • View all your enquiries.
  • Receive an automatic email when a debtor you have listed applies elsewhere for Childcare.
  • Search an individual that you have listed as a reference.
  • 24/7 internet access backed up with a fully trained support team.

Information
 
If you cancel a parent/guardian due to a problem with your centre, there is a high risk that this parent will enrol with another childcare provider. Parents/guardians can be reported as soon as you have a problem.

The majority of childcare providers are currently accepting new enrolments, without knowing the history of the parent/guardian.

Tracking a person can be a costly exercise to the childcare provider before the provider decides to use a commercial agent to skip trace the person.

Some people when tracked down by the childcare provider, are likely to enter into an arrangement to make good any poor reference you may provide.

By becoming a member of TICAedu you will be in control of managing your childcare service's cash flow and will reduce your team's time and wages being spent on chasing up people. Become proactive in preventing childcare problems from occurring in the first place within your childcare service.

Membership to TICAedu is suited to:-
  • Early Childcare Providers
  • Pre-Schools
  • Before & After School Childcare Programmes
  • School Holiday Programmes
  • Long Day Care Centres
  • Family Day Care
  • Nanny Services
  • Private Schools

Frequently Asked Questions
 
1. What is TICAedu?

TICAedu is Australia's premier online Childcare Reference System, in which childcare providers (members) can report parents/guardians who have previously had their children enrolled and left having a problem.

TICAedu collects parents/guardians information from childcare providers who are member's of TICAedu.

As a childcare provider you can search new childcare enrolment applications on the TICAedu website and then make a more informed decision on whether to approve or decline enrolment.

TICAedu does not charge per enquiry.

4. Can I only report parents/guardians who have left my childcare service with a problem?

Yes. When parents/guardians leave your childcare service either from being cancelled, not turning up or finishing at you centre you can record them on the database so that you can provide a reference.

5. Do I need to inform parents/guardians, we use TICAedu to check and report individuals?

Yes.

TICAedu provides a Privacy Act Acknowledgement form which is to be annexed to your current childcare enrolment application form, which will inform your enrolling parents/guardians about TICAedu and advise them that your centre will provide a reference to other centres.

If you refuse to accept a childcare enrolment application based on the information provided by another member of TICAedu, you are not obligated to notify the parents/guardians of the reason although it is however encouraged to advise them.

TICAedu is a preventative measure to help you make informed decisions on whether to accept a new enrolling parent as a new customer. No longer do you need to accept enrolling parents/guardians based on 'face value'. Now you can check the facts first before making a decision.

6. Where does the information come from?

The information comes from childcare providers like you who are tired of accepting parents as customers who neglected to adhere to your centres conditions of enrolment.
