These forms are easy to use, editable versions of the paper forms you use today. What makes them so powerful to you is the ability to type once & save multiple copies. These files are all ran from your local computer, and when they are completed can be printed to your local printer, uploaded (new feature),  or even emailed onto CCFP.

Getting started with these forms may be a little more challenging at first, but the payoff comes in saved time of recreating the “same ole” paperwork.

To use these forms the first thing you will need to do is to download the free FormMax Filler.

Click for the Free Download (3.7M)

To find out more about the FormMax Free Filler (as well as installation help) click here.



The FormMax Filler utility is not a large file, and this will only need to be downloaded one time. Once you have the application loaded on your computer, you will not need to worry about it again.

Follow the manufactures instructions from their website for the installation steps of the program.
Also you will need to reboot your computer after the installation
of the FormMax Filler.You may or may not be prompted for that step, but all the same it is an important one.

To use the CCFP forms that are available as editable FormMax files, simply click on the hyperlink of the form you need. You will be prompted to open or save the file. We suggest you choose to save the file to a local directory on your computer.

Once the file has been saved to your local computer, all you need to do is to double click on the file to open it up. The file will look something like the following;

To get started you need to remember that the areas that are shown in a highlighted yellow color can be edited. Navigate to them by using your mouse and clicking on the area, or you can use your [TAB] key.  Some areas can have text typed into them, others simply need a mouse click or a push of a space bar to create a “check” mark.
Once the forms have had the data added, simply save a named copy to your local machine. For example let’s use the weekly attendance report – we will fill it out for the 1st week of November 2006. We will put our name, and the names of the 5 children we watch.  Let’s say it’s the Monday of that week. It’s just after lunch, and we have jotted down who has been here so far and the meals we have served.

We will have much more information to add to our records by the end of the day, as well as more to add each day this week.

All we need to do is go ahead and save a copy named November 2006. Then each time we need to add more to the form, simply open that named file, make our additions or changes, and save!

To save a copy and name it to the desired name – do the following;

  1. Click on File (in the upper tool bar)
  2. Click on Save As… from the tool bar
  3. Choose the location & the name of the file in the Save dialogue box.


When these forms are ready for the printer – simply click on the icon or File, Print.

You will notice several features with these types of forms, such as self totaling columns. Counting mistakes are easy to make, but since our forms now total the columns, that means less hassle for you. Also common mistakes made with handwriting can be a thing of the past.

If you use cyclical menus – fill them out once, and save the weeks desired, then simply re-type the dates, save, print, & submit.
