This tool is a quick way for parents and schools to connect about the mundane items of your child’s school life. You may not need to know your kid had peas that day, but it is nice to know.

Pros

I like the accessibility to know what is going on with my kiddo during the day. It is a nice synopsis.

Cons

Too many spam type emails. I just want kid info.

I really enjoyed using it. I wish in the future I have something like it for when my kids go to daycare!

Pros

I thought that it was useful to tell parents what and how their child(ren) are doing. The platform is set up where it is very easy to navigate. I would highly recommend to use from the standpoint of a childcare center to use it.

Cons

The one problem I had was it did not send videos. I tried multiple times to send videos to parents, and when I asked about it they said they did not receive the video. Also, when setting bottle reminders and diaper changes you can get stuck in an endless loop (the app freezing, closing it down, and then opening it back up again) if the child is "due" for something.

My son's daycare used this app. I really like the daily sheet function which is very helpful to see when you need to bring in more supplies for your child such as wipes, diapers, etc. It was also great to receive mass communications from the school.

Cons

It can get expensive because the cost is based on the number of students. While I feel this app is very beneficial, there are other apps which are more cost effective if you have a large quantity of children.

As a first time Mom, I love seeing how my child is doing everyday and that I can check in any time I want!
It also helps us figure out a routine by knowing exactly what time he is eating, sleeping, etc.

Pros

Great software! I love that I see changes to my child's profile within seconds of the teachers adding them.

Cons

Check in/out process doesn't always work.

Pleased with LC!

Pros

There's not only a computer based application, but there's also phone support as well. Works great with iOS, Kindle, and Android
The support team is helpful and always tries their best to solve the issues I have
The email blast tool is also the greatest asset it has; makes communication incredibly easy and beneficial

Cons

Though the apps are more suited for tablets, it's on computers as well, yet more limited
Can be slightly buggy and crashes on occasion. Almost always works well and as intended, but the instability can be irritating at times

I think it’s a great program. It makes the parents happy and put at ease knowing they can see what their child has been doing along with being able to message us too.

Pros

I like how as the teacher I can inform the parents about everything we do throughout the day in detail.

Cons

Sometimes it’s a little slow so I exit the app and reopen it and it’s back to working fine.

My overall experience with this company has been AMAZING. My younger child was able to implement this in school with their teachers. My daughter has allergies so the teacher was able to view. The teacher was also able to post and reply back to me in a frequently timely manner! This app is amazing and I highly recommend you give it a chance! Don’t forget to download the app on your smart phone (lifecubby).

Pros

Attention Parents! You will absolutely love this software. As a parent myself I’m always taking photos of my children. This software is able to store all my photos, documents, memories, and extremely important data! Now I don’t have to worry about backing up my smart phone and not having enough storage data! Another great feature is the organization categories. This is where I can store the photos in different occasions. Such as, holidays, birthdays, graduation, etc.

Cons

Sometimes the software is a bit slow. Overall I am extremely impressed with this company!

Life Cubby was great we just personally liked a different app just a little bit more. It had a few different features that we found spoje to our school specifically and so we went in a different direction.

Pros

Life Cubby is great like so many other apps that are out there right now allowing daycares and parents to communicate throughout the day with updates, pictures and videos. For management it also had things like billing and classroom management which was great. I also loved to play with the lesson planning tool.

Cons

As we were in the market for just the right app for our school we just found that another app was easier to navigate through than Life Cubby. It was a teacher preference more than anything.

My brother has a toddler and ask me to take care of here for a moth because he lost his babysitter. The kinder-garden use LifeCubby to maintain parents informed.

Pros

It is a great teacher and parent interface. It is a daily track activity of children to parents. I really like the snapshot option and how the teacher were able to make observations.

Cons

As a any newly app it needs some software improvements. I am an engineer, then for me was easy to adapt to the application. But some people that are not likely to technology could find it difficult to use.
