Happy July 4th! Today is the day United States citizens celebrate our independence from a broken system. Well now it’s time to break apart from the broken childcare management system holding you back. Yes, we mean KidReports from Procare. An old system designed to squeeze pennies. Let’s explore your options.
KidReports from Procare tries to solve the need of parent communication for childcare centers. But is it intuitive? Does it work well with the rest of Procare’s products? Or is it just another add-on to Procare?
Parents today have grown up or become familiar with Facebook and Instagram. These social media platforms enable them to build connections with brands. You want to create a private connection with them; one which exemplifies the quality care you provide in your center. So, the platform that you use to communicate with parents needs to reflect that.
Because Procare is an older software company, it relies on older technology to produce KidReports. On the other hand, Kinderlime‘s user interface is smooth and beautiful, exactly what your parents expect from an up-to-date app. Moreover, most of Kinderlime’s Parent Connection features are FREE, as opposed to the monthly fee you need to pay for KidReports.
Here is a look at the difference between an older software company and a cloud-based system.
Kinderlime’s Parent Connection features include the following:
- Daily Activities
- Meals & Bottles
- Diaper changes & potty breaks
- Share a child’s Mood in a fun way through emojis
- Medications (if any)
- Photos and Videos. You can send multiple photos as well. This will be huge for your parent engagement.
- Learning Activities
