Ratings and Reviews
Our location just started using the app this week. Overall I’m really enjoying it! Just a few recommendations for a future version:
1) I’d like to see what time each meal/snack was eaten. This helps me gauge the urgency to get dinner on the table when we get home.
2) I’d like more controls over what types of notifications I receive during the day. I don’t need/want to be notified every time there’s a toilet entry, so I’d like to disable those notifications, but I still want to be notified of pictures!
3) Incident reports should be able to be submitted and approved/signed off by parents in the app. (I love that we’re saving paper by moving the daily report to a digital forum, but incident reports- which my kid seems to get a lot of- are still on paper.)
Overall- great app! Looking forward to continuing to use this and see how it works when my second kid arrives in 6 months!
Great App But Missing Data..
This is a wonderful improvement! So happy to be using technology and have an app to see real time information! However, when this was advertised to us, we were told we would be able to see real time meal, bottle, and nap information. However that is not the case. Times of meals, snacks, bottles, and naps are not provided until we pick up our child from daycare they finalize the report. It would be really helpful if this information would be available throughout the day in real time. It would also be helpful if teachers could reply/message back through the app. Only the director can. But the director isn’t the one with our children all day. Otherwise a great app! Happy to be using it!

Love the pictures and videos throughout the day however the app should entirely replace the all daily paperwork like the infant and toddler “my day” form, it’s a waste of paper and time on the parents and providers part to enter the information on the form and the iPad. Also, it’s not easy with an infant not seeing what time they napped until 6pm when the report is finalized, itd be much easier if the report was updated throughout the day. The app is a great step forward just needs some fine tuning.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
