Wishview Children’s Center
Wishview has a 5 Star rating from the North Carolina Division of Child Development and Early Education, Creative Curriculum learning activities, accredited preschool music classes, and a live animal science educator!
While many centers primarily provide babysitting services, Wishview is much more engaging. The staff value school-family relationships and teach students character development. The degreed and credentialed teachers create interesting activities and let children explore, all in a supervised environment. The focus is on helping children develop healthy habits and a love for learning!
Life before Kinderlime
We used to use paper-based record keeping, so much paper, and so much expensive printer ink. One of our biggest issues was the storage of records. We also talked about the trouble with using systems that aren’t cloud-based. We often had to trek through surprise inclement weather to get to the PC at the school.
We also had to remember to send a receipt for each payment that was made. We had to write it ourselves and set reminders to start billing future students on their first day of attendance. The staff often had to stop what they were doing to process any debit/credit card payments. The staff would also print out and store paper sign-in sheets for each individual child. We had an old fashion time in sheet, we had to manually add up each employee work hours.
Life after Kinderlime
Fantastic software! It is absolutely THE BEST child care app on the market right now. The Kinderlime team offers real 5 Star customer service.
After doing trials with four different companies, We decided to go with Kinderlime because of its totality of software capability and ease of use from our computers, to our phones or tablets. As a director, I have worked with several different software platforms over the years. Lots of apps are out there and at first many seemed good, but once you start working with them the frustrations are slowly revealed. So I actually ran the demos for four different leading childcare management apps with a few of my *real* clients for three weeks in summer 2018. It was a LOT of extra work but I wanted to make sure that I experienced fully living with each app before making a commitment. In the end, there was NO contest. Kinderlime software does so much more than competitors. It is easy to use and more intelligently designed. It has enough muscle with billing, organization and reporting features that you can really use it to keep the business side of your school organized and keep connected to your clients.
Features such as parent email, parent texting, tagging, batch child actions, enhanced filtering, and headache-free automated billing take so much work off of my plate. Kinderlime runs smoothly with quick reports right inside the app. I’m generally a tough sell but any Director or Manager will be thrilled with this software!
