Ratings and Reviews
This app is amazing for any parent who is going back to work after maternity leave or any grandparent who is helping out with dropping off / picking up the little angels for the day . It really is comforting and cuts down on stress and anxiety to see the activity of the child .
The app allows photos , it tracks how much sleep they are having , how much milk they have consumed how many dirty diapers , it also lets you send a message to the care giver it’s amazing . It’s so comforting to open up the app anytime of the day and see how your little angle is doing , and what kind of day they are having . It helps keep track of things for you too.
On the weekends you can input your daily information. It’s so helpful.
Your whole wellbeing is taken care of for you with this app knowing that your baby is being loved and cared for . I show it off anytime I get a chance .
Glitchy and frustrating
I’m a teacher who is required to use this app. In short, teachers and centers don’t waste your time. It kicks students out of my classroom daily so I can’t log anything for them with no way to get them back on my own classroom device, so I have to go to another classroom and use one specific device every time I need to fix it. I have parents who can’t view or download documents, and I don’t have the emails so it’s how I’m required to send newsletters. I’m admittedly picky about this, but I don’t like the design of the app (fonts, images, icons, etc.). I think it looks cheap and tacky. The only reason I gave it two star is because it does what it’s supposed to 50% of the time. Teachers and centers, run away! Pick something else, like brightwheel.

YWCA OF MINNEAPOLIS DOWNTOWN
One of the poorest ran facilities in the metro for childcare!! They have only the care of themselves as staff and not the concern of development for the children. The app itself is vague from the truth of the actual place where you leave your children throughout the day. This not being the first child that was cared for there I thought why not because as usual the staff may change but the app I thought would make it possible to communicate better, yet due to the age ‘complexity’ of ‘some’ staff they weren’t able to communicate through the app but called my personal number numerous times of ‘child-like’ behavior from a child??? But thanks child connect for the app, I’m sure once we he’s at his new facility they’ll have staff professional enough to learn the app.

This is not the right place for your review. It is a review of your daycare, it's not about Daily Connect.
