Playground emails became a lot more fun! All emails being sent out from Playground got a revamp and include a lot more color and style. This should make the emails stand out and look more professional.

After a very warm reception to enrollment support for before and after school care, we also added support for monthly billing options. We are constantly making our enrollment more flexible. Please let us know what else you'd like to see.

Playground payroll now supports contractor payments. Playground will generate 1099s and manage contractors directly on the platform. If you are interested in Playground Payroll, please sign up for our waitlist to get early access as more providers are getting off the list each week!
