Free your team from manual invoicing and payment processing

With payment plans, invoices automatically run on time, every time. Apply automatic late charges or early bird discounts and accommodate flexible family invoice schedules. Everything is updated in real-time so you can always see the full picture.

Forward-thinking payments for forward-thinking families

Families can pay directly through the mobile app, set up auto-payments, change payment methods, and view balances and statements. Parents automatically receive notifications when new charges are posted or when a due date is coming up.

Never chase a payment again

Recurring payments mean invoices are automatically applied to a student's balance, without you having to lift a finger.

Playground makes daily billing easy to get through

We know that billing software can be intimidating, and that's why Playground is designed to be easy to use, even without accounting experience. And if you do want an extra hand, our customer service—run by real humans—is only a chat message or phone call away.

“Whenever I have a question, whether it be big or small, I love the fact that I can call a number and reach a real person quickly.”
