Kask Software recognizes that the Year 2000 is a serious business issue and is committed to make sure that Childcare Professional is compliant the Year 2000 and beyond. Unfortunately, no matter how prepared we are for the Year 2000, computer software relies on your computer’s BIOS to be Year 2000 compliant. You should have your computer checked for compliance also.
