My children's daycare recently began using this app, and me and my husband absolutely love it! My favorite features are the daily report and the ability to email the teachers directly and the headlines...

I think that I can see weekly attendances and I am always able to see my monthly projections. Its very simple to input the children's information

Cons

Sometimes it is slow. Families have complained about not getting messages and/or pictures when staff have sent them.

I'm able to see what my daughter is doing in the day. What activities the daycare engages with them and sees the kinds of meals she is eating. Which is awesome.

Pros

I love being able to share the special moments with my immediate family in one click. I love that the daycare can share photos with all of us without having to take pictures all day long.

Ease of communication with families is by far the most benefit we get from this program. It is also nice to have our lesson plans, messages, menu's and calendars all in one place. Not to mention the paper we save.

Pros

Sending parents instant messages and pictures and reminders is unbelievably easy now. We try to send parents a picture of their child enjoying there day every week. We can also remind them to bring diapers or other necessities for their child any time.

Cons

It could use a few more administrative features. I find myself running an entire report to get one line out of it.

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.
