It's great to get updates and pictures throughout and at the end of the day. It's also handy to see what the "nothing" your preschooler says he did all day, actually is! And the updates I had about my baby's eatings habits actually helped my doctor give us a plan of action when he wasn't doing so well. So happy our childcare provider uses it. Two thumbs up!

One big thing I think this app is missing is the date of each report...and the ability to see the past week or so...seems it's lost as soon as you move to the next day...friendlier navigatation and menus would be worth considering. I do love getting updates and seeing pictures throuough the day!

Pros

Getting daily updates

Cons

Can't review history...clunckly navigation

It's absolutely wonderful! Seriously - it makes my day. I love the updates about my daughter throughout the day (the pictures and videos are the best) and it's an easy way to communicate with her teachers. My family also adores it because they get to see the baby, too - they're part of her "Crew"! I love HiMama!!!

We tried many other reporting systems for our school to severyone and communicate with our parents but Hi Mama has been hands down our favorite and our parents love it! As a director/owner of my childcare center my personal.favorite feature is that our super odors can review each entry for each student on reports overview and see if there are excited tries missing before the report get sent out to parents. We love using the observations tools to attach skills observed to pics and videos of students to help parents know more about their child's day and what they are learning. We also use the notes section for reminders and to list a few of our Learning skills from the Daily lesson plan to keep parents informed about what lessons were taught. We love Hi Mama and we would highly recommend this to you!

Pros

Reports overview feature to see all students activities in one classroom to see any missing entries.

Advice to Others

It's the best and the easiest to use.

I LOVE HiMama. It keeps me informed about my child's day, the activities she is doing and what she is learning. I love being at work and hearing my phone ding and then taking a quick second to check for the photo her educators have sent. It provides me with reassurance and puts a smile on my face. I am so glad that my child's centre decided to use Hi Mama!

I really enjoy that we can follow our kids activities throughout the day. The only thing that I found a little bit annoying is we need to click twice to see the real seize of the photo. It would be awesome if everything we go on the headlights (I have two kids) that we could see the photo in its totality. Quite often I see the half on my kids face and I need to click twice to see the his face. this problem is with the app on my IPhone. I don't know if the problem happens on Internet.

I stay in Scotland and my granddaughter in Canada. This app has allowed me to see what she gets up to, and to watch her grow. Makes me feel part of her day. Would have missed loads of her growing up if it was not for the app. Loved every minute of it.

We do enjoy our Hi Mama program, there are a few things that we would like to be able to do with it though. Being able to print off toileting chart for the week so that we don't have to keep a written copy as well as logging it on Hi Mama, we just discovered that we can print off sleep checks so that is helpful. It would be nice if we could do that for snacks and meals as well. Getting our tablets to create collages and the right size to download is sometimes tricky. It has been helpful that we have your support to go in and fix mistakes when we discover them from your end. We wish that we could add more than one picture to an activity and we wish that sometimes there would be a blank domain section so that we can list what skill we are working on if it's not something listed.

Pros

The ease of adding snacks and lunch and sleep times all at once is great.

Cons

Would like to be able to add more than 1 photo
Would like to be able to print off toileting charts each day or every week as well as snacks and lunches
Would like to be able to have blank sections under domains, skills so that we can add our own info as sometimes they don't always have what we are looking for.
