Pros
It’s super fast and effective for daycare owners to provide updates to families. It’s amazing as parents don’t need to pay to access the information, and it’s a very low monthly fee for providers.
Ease of use and customer service are big plusses with this app. It's very user friendly, and constantly being made better - adding new great features.
We have had a positive experience using the app and find the customer support to be fantastic.
Cons
Parents sometimes struggle with finding the code to join Daily connect. However, I often think it is due to email going to spam.
Occasionally, we have trouble getting items to sync, or have to close the program to access a differnt program.
I suggest it all the time to colleagues, and have no plans to ever switch for my own program.

Daily Connect is Everything a Mom Could Ask For!

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

My day care started using Daily Connect as a way to send parents updates throughout the day. Being able to see photos of my children during the day, seeing how long their naps are, what they ate that day, etc. is literally unmatched! I can communicate with the day care teachers and director in real time using the app. If either side ever has a concern it can be addressed right away. I'm able to save the photos on my app to my personal devices and keep them forever. This app is literally one of the reasons I'm so at ease with my children at day care. I can always peek in and see what they are doing!

Cons

There is absolutely nothing I would change about this app and I mean that!

Parents will love you for it!

Reviewed 5 years ago

I have use daily connect for about 10 years now. We went from paper daily reports to the daily connect and I will say it’s huge having it. We post every moment and as much iinformation as we can and parents absolutely love it! It’s for sure some of the reason parents chose us over other programs!

Pros

They connect for parents to their child daycare is so important! Daily connect helps you with that. Our clients love being able to get a play by play throughout their day on their kiddos. Along with pictures and other information it helps keep them connected with their kids throughout the entire day while they are away from them!

Cons

I wish it had a video option, i love sending pictures to the parents throughout their day and many response right back how it’s makes there days at times especially rough work days when they wish they could be home with their kiddos. It’s would be awesome to send them a video sometimes pictures don’t capture or tell the extra special moments. This would be a huge benefit for us the parents and the app!

Daily Connect

Reviewed 2 years ago

Better than having to remember to sign a book.

Pros

The interface is pretty self explanatory.

Cons

I forget to complete it. If I forget to login my son's drop off and go to log in pick up, it will register as drop off, even though he's clearly been at the school all day (notes about eating snack, using toilet, napping, etc). Seems like an easy-ish fix.

Couldn't live without it!

Reviewed 5 years ago

I couldn't run my business successfully without it. I love everything about this app!

Pros

I love everything about this system, but most importantly the customer service is outstanding! I have only had to inquire 2 times, and both issues were handled within minutes. The developer directly contacted me via email. I was extremely impressed! Not only is the customer service great, but it is perfect for documentation and communicating with my child care families. I cannot give this program a better review! 10 out of 10!

Cons

I wish that there were group options like we are able to do for picture uploads. Being able to add in a meal or message for an entire group without posting on individual profiles would be much faster and seamless.

Vendor response

Many thanks for the feedback. You can actually post any entry to an entire group of children, just tap on the child selector at the top of the screen and select several children before saving the entry. Please contact support@dailyconnect.com if you need more info.

Daily connect user 4+ years

Reviewed 5 years ago

I have been using daily connect for about 4yrs now and have loved my experience. The support team are always prompt to answer questions and help with issues. Using this app had truely been a life saver for my journey as an Educator. It’s so easy to just tap the app, write a few words, snap a picture and save it. Knowing the parents will be updated and everything is right there if I need to view it later

Pros

As an early childhood Educator I have found daily connect useful to track each child’s journey. Parents love being able to view and stay updated what’s happening in the ‘now’ meals, sleeps, toilet, medical, pictures etc. It’s helpful that both parties can enter information.

Cons

There isn’t anything that I don’t like about the current software as such, but would be great with a few additional extras such as being able to have video’s.
