Funding Summary (Home Network)

This option will allow you to view funding values broken down into the various funding types for the selected funding period. The report will be split by room/caregiver.

Please note - if your service over enrolls children, this report will not be accurate.  This is because the report calculates funding for each category of Sign In Sheet individually, and therefore capping cannot be performed. For example, let's say the service is licensed for 20 children, and they have 10 in Blue Room and 11 in Red Room. If the Funding Summary report is run then funding will be capped at 20.  If Funding Summary (Home Network) is run then the figures are extracted for Blue Room and then for Red Room, and the report does not know how many children are allowed in each room. Besides this whole report is a bit hypothetical as the MOE does not split funding into different rooms.


So this report can only be used to get an idea of the split of funding between the various categories / rooms, and if the user wants accurate figures for the entire license then the Funding Summary must be used instead.  Also remember that funding can not be accurately predicted over a period, as the staff percentage can only be accurately determined for the whole funding period.

The algorithm used to calculate the occupancy for the AM/PM report is - If a child has a start time in the morning, that counts as a half day. If a child has a leave time in the afternoon, that counts as a half day. i.e. a child with a start time in the morning and a leave time in the afternoon would be counted as a full day, whereas a child with a start and leave time in the morning would only count as a half day.  


Occupancy Format 1 using Actual Hours

The algorithm used to calculate the occupancy for the Using FTE report is - In the Dashboard display (from the home page click on Reports, then click Dashboard) Users are able to specify the FTE hours. Whatever figure has been selected for the Dashboard, applies to this report as well.
