The Teaching Strategies Family App helps you build connections with your child’s teachers and caregivers through clear and meaningful two-way communication streams. Stay connected to the learning that is taking place in your child’s classroom with multimedia-playlists, engaging activities, and two-way messaging with your child’s teacher.

The Teaching Strategies Family App is used by over 2,600 programs and 330,000 families to strengthen the connections between school and home.

* easily toggle between multiple children;

* facilitate family observations for inclusion in the assessment process whether in-class or remote learning;

No time clock

Would be helpful if it displayed when child is clocked in and out on the daily report. It posts it the day of but no other place to keep track. Most daycares charge if you’re over hours or miss clocking your child in/out.

Terrible switch

Teachers are having problems with glitches and difficulty adding in comments and photos compared to the previous system we used. The app is flooded with pics and vids of other messages and basically junk. I’d they want to post it for the few parents who want enrichment ideas then make it a separate tab that doesn’t block the space I want to use to see and read about my kid during the day. The audio for videos doesn’t work in the app. I can only play it through the video on my email. I can’t easily download videos. I have to go through the emails instead. I can’t comment on specific pics or vids. I don’t get notifications for when a teacher or director messages me back. My settings are set to allow all notifications. The end of day report has a daily schedule listed with a morning activity recommendation, how is that useful if I get it at night time? I’ve only been using this app for a month and dreading the change due to the poor reviews. The school must have gotten a sweet money deal to make the decision to switch over from a highly rated app to this sad one. Shameful

Zero stars

If I could give this app no stars I would. We use it only because the school chose it so there’s no other option. For starters, why is the home page cluttered like a social media app? Why is it suggesting games, videos, and giving me parenting tips? I don’t care. Then, why is there a whole library of low quality e books that you can barely see (if they even open)? Come on dev team, get real. Nobody is using those. Then, why is every daily report, photo, and school memo all lumped into one “memories” section only sorted by chronological order? I mean good grief at the very least separate out the useful information. The reports are the only reason any parent uses an app like this but to find them you have to comb through all the nonsense. I don’t even bother with the app unless I have to send a message to the teachers, otherwise the reports get emailed to me and I just see them there.
