Kev & Kolt's Mom ,

Love this app!!!

I absolutely love that I can see what my boys are doing during their day at pre-school. By visualizing their lesson plan for the day, it gives me an opportunity to ask them specific questions about what they are learning. Their teacher posts the book they read that day or the projects they worked on. Previously, when I would ask them about what they did at school that day (at the prior day care), they would typically answer with “nothing 🤷🏻‍♀️". Even though I knew that wasn't true lol. Now I can ask them about their sunflower seed project or the butterfly painting that they did that day. The app also allows for the teachers to send messages to me and my husband directly (items we might need to bring in, upcoming events, etc). I was able to see pictures of them smiling and running around on the playground with new friends, which helped me to feel more comfortable when my boys (ages 2 1/2 & 5) switched schools. Overall I am very happy with this app!

Center Director feedback ,

Major feature needed

I have communicated this to the developers:

The 4-5 other care apps I have used have a sleep timer feature. One button to hit when a child falls asleep and hit it again when they wake. No need to edit in a sleep start time. In group care it’s unlikely you will remember exactly when each infant or toddler fell asleep. Naps also coincide with staff breaks at centers, the person in the room isn’t always the same person for the duration of a child’s nap and wouldn’t know what to edit the start time to. Or when a nap ended, if, just before the next staff came in. With the other apps, different staff can start the timer and end the timer when they woke, tracking it wouldn’t be tied to the original observer knowing when a child fell asleep. It’s time consuming to have to write this stuff down just to communicate with each other about it. The whole point of the app is to not have to write down care notes, and naps are a big part of the infant and toddler care routines.

Also, you can’t seem to open any pdf attachments from smartphones.

Hi there, thank you for taking the time to write us this review. It's possible to open pdf files from the app or browser. Please, contact us at support@himama.com and we'll be more than happy to send you instructions on how to easily create sleep entries in our app! 😉

Love this place! The ladies are so nice to my grandson and he’s always happy when picked up. I know it means so much to my daughter knowing her son is so well taken care of. However, fir the Grammy it means just as much! My first grandchild, which I’m sure many of you understand how this feels. And my first to attend Daycare! I’m very impressed with all of the staff and very fortunate that I’m able to see what kind of day he had at the end of the day. The pictures are just so cute and just the icing on the cake!
So thank you so much for all your hard work and for the love you give to our special grandson,
I feel at peace knowing my daughter feels at peace with her first child in your hands.
God Bless you all, and thank you from the bottom of our hearts.❤️❤️
