Downloading Software

All new software orders purchased online are available for immediate download. Approved purchase orders faxed to us are available for download the same day that we receive the fax, and orders paid for by paper check and mailed to us are available for download the same day we receive the order.

Shipped Software

We ship out a Childcare Sage Software Package via USPS First Class mail with every purchase. All payments by check may be subject to a 5-7 business day delay while checks clear. All software is usually mailed out within 48 hours of the completed payment, and most users receive the software within 3 business days of us mailing it out.

The shipped Childcare Sage Software Package includes the software product on CD-Rom or DVD, an installation booklet, and the software's serial number in a sealed, tamper proof, green envelope. (The serial number envelope is inside the software package.)


The Childcare Sage comes with a 60 day 100% money back guarantee. After your purchase, we mail you the Childcare Sage Software Package which includes the software on CD-Rom / DVD, an installation booklet, and the software's serial number in a separate, sealed green envelope. Once this separate sealed green envelope is opened, no refunds will be given. Additionally, if you request that the serial numbers be emailed to you, there will be no refunds given once the email is sent.

In the unlikely event that you want to return our software, simply contact us by phone or email to get an RMA number, write the RMA number on the outside of the software package, make sure the software package includes the software product CD-Rom and the sealed and unopened green serial number envelope, and return the entire software package to us postmarked within 60 days of the purchase date.

We will only accept a software product return if the software package is returned to us and postmarked within 60 days of the purchase date, the serial number envelope has not been opened, and that you have a valid RMA number written on the outside of the package. Returns that lack an RMA number, contain an opened serial number envelope, or that are postmarked after 60 days from the purchase date, will be sent back to you.

Our return rate is very low, and usually our software is returned because the user couldn't figure something out and didn't bother to call us for help.

We strongly recommend that you renew your annual support package to keep your software current and to also get free unlimited help and support when you need it. Keep in mind that our purchased software will continue to work indefinately regardless of whether you renew your support package.

Our systems can interface with other programs from Microsoft Office, Image Viewer Programs, and other applications. Aside from networking, which is included in our Support w/networking Package, we cannot provide support for software that we did not create. Please direct all support questions about outside programs to the developers of those programs.

Custom Development

For any custom development, such as custom reports, billing functionality, or batch functionality, we can either charge a fixed fee for the project or we can charge by the hour. For fixed fee projects, we agree on the length of time required to complete your request and the cost before work begins. As such, half is due before work begins and the remaining half is due upon delivery of the new software. For projects charged by the hour, an initial deposit that covers 25% of the project estimate is due before work begins, and the remainder is due as work is performed on a set schedule.  

Errors / Bugs

We make every attempt to keep our users satisfied with our products. We thoroughly test every product before it is released. After we test the product, we give a limited number of that product to users and elicit their feedback. We release our products only after they have proven to be useful, stable, and according to our knowledge error/bug free.

However, because of the myriad of functions within our products, there is a small possibility that an error will make it into the production version of our products. We ask our users to inform us of any issues that arise out of the use of our products. These issues can include suggestions, recommendations, error reports, or new functions that the user would like to see in future versions of our products. All of our products can be simply and effortlessly upgraded to the latest version of that package without any data loss. If one of our users reports a critical error in our product, we immediately resolve that error and make the corrected software available for download on our website. We then e-mail update instructions to all of our users that use that product and are currently registered for support. Non-critical errors are corrected in the next release of that product.


We make every effort to assist our users in keeping their information safe. Our backup program allows our users to easily backup and store their data. Because our products are written in Microsoft Access 2002/XP, there should be no compatibility issues with Windows operating systems. That being said, hard drives crash and computers break. By using our products, our users agree that our liability is limited to replacing our software on CD-Rom / DVD only. We are not responsible for lost data, time and effort required to re-enter data, or anything else except replacing our software. 

Software Piracy

Software piracy is an important issue to us. Our revenue and growth depends on users of our products purchasing those products. Because all software can be duplicated and distributed without reimbursing the creator and owner of that software, we cannot ensure that all users of our products have purchased those products. Unauthorized users of our products will not receive any support and will further be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. 

Our products save our users time and make them money. We hope that users of our products see their value and do the right thing.

Privacy Policy

We do not sell or offer any information about our clients/users to any outside parties. We do occassionally ask current users to provide testimonials.

Daycare Software
"Value. Childcare Sage is relatively inexpensive and because it is so comprehensive, you are definitely getting the best bang for your buck."


  1) "What a wonderful program.  Tried the competitors trials and this is so much simpler to use."  Mary M. Childcare Haven, Ohio

2) "Your customer service was so helpful with our installation questions.  This program is so user friendly. "Bill J. Montessori Learning Schools  Maryland

3) The Childcare Sage software has so many features and was literally more that half the price or the competition. We love it." Betty B. California Learning Academy

4) " Love this program.  Looked at the web based offering but the customer service person explained why that was not the way to go.  She was so right. A friend went with web based and four times my price and sure enough the internet goes down and they can't use it."  Dale D. Missouri

Child Care Sage Differentiators:

1) The Childcare Sage is not web-based. You are not leasing your software, you don't have monthly payments, your costs never go up, and you control how you use your software, and there is never any down time due to internet outages.

2) The Childcare Sage includes a time clock that runs on any windows computer and can be networked.

3) The Childcare Sage can be networked and can be installed on multiple computers (including home computers, laptops, etc.) when used for the same center without additional seat licenses.

4) The Childcare Sage offers unique billing customization to automate how your center bills, instead of making you change how you bill, or making you manually enter charges.

5) The developers of the Childcare Sage, B & I Computer Consultants, have a 10 year history of providing top notch professional software and support, with over 7,000 highly satisfied current users.

6) The Childcare Sage costs less than 1/5 the price of some of our competitors, and our software is much less expensive than web-based programs that you lease each month.

7) Childcare Sage has more features and benefits than any other software on the market and we have the ability to add custom reporting on a one off basis.  Need something customized just ask!
