The Best Software for the Best Price

Reviewed 2 years ago

It has been a wonderful experience! I'm not always the most savvy computer user and I had no problems using this software.

Pros

We are a Lutheran preschool and the price fit into our budget nicely. It's also user friendly for both our preschool staff and parents. The customer service is phenomenal! Within a few minutes of an email that we are having an issue or we forgot how to do something, we will get a call or email back within seconds or minutes. This program has saved us so much time when it comes to billing and payroll! It was a Godsend during the quarantine, our preschool was closed and the teachers were able to post their lessons and make videos for the kids so they could continue learning while at home.

Cons

We wish parents could upload photos so that teachers could see them in their messages.

Vendor response

Lori, we're delighted to hear about your experience with ChildPilot. Thanks for sharing! We appreciate you and will continue to work hard to deliver the best customer service. As we continue to make improvements to our software, we will look further into making improvements based on your feedback.

We Love Childpilot - Their product, service and pricing it outstanding.

Reviewed 3 months ago

Was up and running very quickly. Wonderful support through [SENSITIVE CONTENT]! (and others) Childpilot has addressed every issue or need we had and makes it happen very quickly. We love the automatic payment system for parents. We love the ability to see what is happening at the center even when we are at home.

Pros

Easy to use. Direct access to families! Features it provides such as name-to-face, daily reports, assessments, etc.

Cons

We would love a component of curriculum that automatically gives teachers lesson plans and then they can share it to the parents from the app. (like tadpoles offers Teaching Strategies/Creative Curriculum) Would love creative curriculum or something similar to be an added part of the service.

ChildPilot Review

Reviewed 3 months ago

Customer service is very attentive and we do believe we are getting a great product for a doable price.

Pros

Online registration and payment options. Messaging capabilities. Attendance tracking. Time off management for staff.

Cons

No streamlined user manual. Instead, you have to go search youtube videos. No daily notes individualized for each child (if you add an activity, it's for the whole class) No way to upload teacher-specific documents (like a "favorites" form) so the whole class can access it. The about me section is not sufficient. The emails only come from noreply@childpilot and often go to spam. Would also love for parents to be able to reply directly from the emails we send.

ChildPilot is an incredible software

Reviewed 2 years ago

After using ChildPilot for two years, it is clear that ChildPilot is an incredible childcare management software. The functionality of the software is as solid as the more expensive choices. As an office manager of a preschool, it does everything that I need it to do. Utilizing the web based interface, it is very friendly for our staff and parents. The added functionality of direct messaging from the software allows us to communicate with our families. A nice feature that our families love is providing the flexibility to make tuition payments online. My experience with the ChildPilot customer service has been impeccable with amazing response times. I also appreciate their willingness to listen to our needs to customize the software or add features. I highly recommend this software.

Pros

User friendly and great customer service

Cons

I need to explore all of the features this software offers.

Vendor response

Maret, we are thrilled to have you as part of the ChildPilot family! Your kind words mean a lot to our entire team. We will continue to enhance our software and meet your needs at all times.

Outstanding Child Care Management Software

Reviewed 2 years ago

The ChildPilot staff have been wonderful to answer our questions and seek to make improvements to the software to help it fit our needs. The price point of this program is much better than most in this industry. Even our staff members who were very afraid of technology and hesitant when we introduced the software are now singing it's praises. The teachers love ChildPilot and the parents do as well.

Pros

ChildPilot has made communication with the parents of children in our care easier and more efficient. Having everything I need to manage our daily schedules, billing or communication with staff and parents from any location has made my job so much easier, especially when I'm away from the office.

Cons

There are still some updates that are needed on how Shot Records are updated that we hope they will be able to address soon.

Vendor response

Teresa! We are so glad to hear childpilot has facilitated parent communication and madeyour management tasks easier. We appreciate your kind review and feedback. We are continuously looking for ways to improve our software and we will review our shot records feature for any improvements that can be made.

Software review

Reviewed 2 years ago

It has been a positive expirence so far, and I look forward to continuing this service. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] our cust. service rep. has been great at getting back with me and helping me find affordable options.

Pros

I really like how much time it has saved me in regards to billing and staff scheduling/payroll. I have also gotten a lot of positive feedback from the parents in regard to pictures, activities, and sharing stories with them.

Cons

I did not like that the software did not save my child data, as I entered it in safari instead of chrome. I also wish there was more of an option for assessments/milestones on the app. Many companies I am sure would be happy to have their assessment on your software. Please look into this!

Vendor response

Tiffany, thank you for your kind review and feedback. We are so glad to hear ChildPilot is saving you time performing administrative tasks, and parents are enjoying their experience. We are continuously looking for ways to enhance our software and will look further into making improvements based on your recommendations.
