Waterford Mentor–– the app to engage parents
Mentor is a new app that works alongside Waterford Early Learning. It allows parents to sync with a student account and see the student’s usage time and achievements in Waterford Early Learning to keep parents “in the know.”
Parents can see the amount of time their student spends in Waterford Early Learning. The app breaks down the usage time by subject area and shows parents whether the child is on track for the week.
Parents can see the academic achievements that their student earns as they progress through the Waterford Early Learning.
Parents receive messages from Waterford Early Learning, with suggestions about offline activities that they can engage into, with the child, based on the child's progress.
After you download the app, you will need a code from your student’s teacher to connect to your student’s account.
Ratings and Reviews
I like the ability to read messages on the app. As silly as it sounds, I would like to be able to have the ability for my child to do her learning from the app or an app through Waterford. Over the Holidays we would have been able to complete the work if there was an app. We tried on the web browser from my phone and it didn’t work. We had cellular but no internet. And bringing the computer wasn’t an option. Otherwise she is learning tons and is making wonderful progress! I would recommend the program to any parent with a Pre-K child or children.
Engaging little learners
With the pandemic my son was not able to go to preschool. Know that I was worried about his transition to Kindergarten. His daycare teacher told me about Upstart and I was curious to see if this was a good alternative. It was! My son has been so excited to get on the Upstart laptop and do his homework! He learns new things each day and the program goes through tests that help go over his problem areas. Our coach has also been very supportive and enthusiastic about his learning! Montiuna has been a great teacher to work with and I would recommend any preschool child to be introduced to Upstart before going to school.
Lag in updating, but overall great app
I love this app it does help me to know how well my daughter is doing online. She is super independent and this app allows me to give her some space but still see how she is doing. I love that it gives us emailed tips/suggestions to encourage and improve.
However, it takes awhile to fully update the info. For instance today she finished her requirement for the day and week and it still shows 4 out of 5 days of work done, a few hours after she finished.
