Preschool & Child care easy and smooth.

Pros

First, I would like to mention its neat UX design. Congratulations for that!

Now, families can be in touch with what their kids are doing, eating, and playing which is amazing. The customization of the app to keep track of every kid and their activities is very useful. Teacher and parents connected smoothly and efficiently is its most valuable feature.

And with mobile apps for Android and iOS there is no excuse. Everything is handy and accurate. Development Assessments and messaging between parents and teachers, planning, reports, everything together to make it easier for everyone involved.

Cons

This is a great tool so far. Of course it could be improved, but so far so good.

Himama there; less to worry

It gives a feeling that I'm always connected with the school and my child. Don't want to be in person always to have a chat with the teacher. This helps a lot to save my time. Also very handy and convenient to use.

Pros

Getting daily notification and report throughout the day make me worry less about my kid and the pictures uploaded give an immense amount of giggles. Also easy to communicate with teachers and the customer service is also impressive.

Cons

Nothing I came across. Absolutely a good one.

Was not able to use this app and was denied a reimbursement!!

The initial salespeople are extremely pleasant and will tell you anything you want to hear just to sell you this app. Once you pay for it, you truly find out how limited the app is and the fact that it is not fully functional for a Florida school. You are then left to the mercy of not so pleasant people who could care less about your experience or your review. DO NOT FALL FOR THEIR SALES PITCH! I am out hundreds of dollars and I did not use the app for a single day of my daycare being open.

Pros

I liked the idea of the parent communication feature. Yet was not able to use the feature, as I discovered after being given access to the app that it did not have the necessary features needed in a Florida daycare setting to comply with all necessary documentation needs. I therefore cancelled before my actual subscription began and was denied the refund of the months I had prepaid for.

Cons

This app does not have the administrative functions needed to document all areas needed to keep up with Florida Certifications. I asked if they had everything we needed multiple times before purchase and only realized once given access (after I paid for a subscription), that it did not have the tools for that documentation. When I called (during my FREE month of subscription, before my paid for subscription even began) they denied me any refund, even though they admitted that 4 other daycares had cancelled their subscriptions for this same reason. I was led to believe this would have everything we needed and when it was clear it did not, they would not reimburse my payment, even though we were still in the trial month.

Review

I like being able to communicate more fluidly with daycare providers.

Pros

Pictures and the content. The desktop has lot more functionality than Tadpoles or other apps I've used.

Cons

The mobile interface is lacking and not great to navigate and cannot access all humans features and content, such as menus and calendars. I wish I could save pictures and videos from the app.
