In addition to Minute Menu which comes highly recommended from many here in the forum. Take a look at Google Apps.

Where as MM provides software for tracking much of your day care operations, you might find value in having tools that can make using MM (or other tools more effective). With Google Apps, you can get an email account using your own domain ( with great built in spam filtering. In addition to email the following is also included with Google Apps:

Talk - Instant messaging with video chat.
Calendar - makes sharing calendars and schedules easy.
Docs - Create, share, collaborate with online documents (like Word, Excel).
Sites - Create sites without IT skills. Make sites public or private for storing.

These are great easy to use tools that can make running your new day care much easier. Once you have set up your business tools (like email) you can connect to MM or any other software you choose.

This is a very brief overview, but really worth checking out. Note that Google Apps is different than a personal gmail account ( Google Apps works for those that have a domain.

Here's the best part for organizations with less than 10 people, you can sign up for the standard edition of Google Apps for free!

Hope this helps. Any questions, let me know.
