ParentZone helps nurseries and parents to work together even better as partners - encouraging your child’s ongoing development.
By being able to read through your child’s learning journey in your own time, rather than just at pick up time, you will feel more engaged with what your child has done that day.

Ratings and Reviews
I find this app very frustrating to use. I find it does the job when my son is at nursery as I find myself getting things through all day which I love. What I hate is how difficult it is to upload your own post to send to the nursery e.g. photos and comments from a holiday. It doesn’t work half the time, photos won’t upload, you can’t see what you’re typing as keyboard on my phone is in the way and I can’t scroll down to actually read back what I’m typing. Super frustrating! I have found myself spending so much time trying to get the app to work properly I give up. I wish I could upload more stuff so nursery know and understand more things that are going on in my son’s home life but it’s so painful! Sort it out otherwise more and more establishments will move over to much better systems such as tapestry!

Hello, thank you for the review. I wanted to let you know that we have been hard at work creating a new and improved app for parents. If your child is still at nursery and you are still a user of ParentZone we would absolutely love your feedback so we can make improvements before general release.

Has potential but 70% of updates are hours behind
Overall, this app has the potential to be great and offer parents a brilliant way to stay informed about their children. My biggest grumble, however, is that most of the updates come through hours after the nursery has posted them. For example, On my son’s first day, we didn’t receive an update until after we’d collected him (late afternoon), even though the nursery had posted the updated in the morning. This is a crucial glitch that needs fixing.

Hello, thank you for reviewing ParentZone. The events are sent to the ParentZone timeline as soon as they are published by a nursery staff member. They may have been added throughout the day but only published later on, which is why you are experiencing the delay.
We would advise speaking to your nursery and If you still believe the problem is within the app, please email us at email@example.com, we hope this helps. :)
User unfriendly app
I love the idea of this app, but the implementation is very upsetting, have been using it for 3 weeks. It seems that parents and nurseries staff patterns, needs and pain points were not researched properly.
Must have have features for me are:
Logging in using Face ID
Saving and sharing photos
Informing about child absence with the dates range and the reason to be picked up from a list
Nice to have features:
Every morning my child’s nursery texts a menu. Why not to do it via the app? The less channels of communication the better for busy parents. Also it could help to match a menu with the “Meal-Portion-Type“ table to understand what a child liked.
Nursery staff uses abbreviation in nappies logging. It would be handy to have a glossary with these abbreviations and their meanings.
Thumbnails of photos look ugly, they should be resized and compressed properly. I think it’s fair to say that all parents want to see nice pics of their children.
Main navigation doesn’t open after surfing over screens
Hope this app will be improved and will become a real helper for parents and nurseries.
