Pros

The app is so easy to use and such a great tool to share information with parents. Beautiful learning journeys for our children including videos that they will look back on.
Overall we have had a great experience the past year, we hope for a long and positive relationship.
Great software, it was really easy to set up and the customer support were knowledgeable, friendly and easy to contact.

Pros

The parents love the real time updates and the staff loves the visual cues and intuitive use. I love that parents can pay online and I now receive over 90% of tuition in the first week of each month.
The excellent customer support we always receive. And the fact that they take our ideas and implement them the best they can.
We love the fact that Kangarootime has automated so much of our business processes. It's great to have one product that handles everything from accounting to employees to parents.

Cons

Only thing is that the push notification for an accident does not tell you what child it is about.
Sometimes staff in the sleep room change and it can be hard calculating 7 different wake up times from the time each child has been marked to have fallen asleep.
If a child hasn't started but register and you make a mistake on the room moves this can be hard to amend without seeking help. Can this be made the same as children who are registered.

Cons

When typing messages to parents, it lags terribly. We use this program on iPads and does not work well.
Our parents have had some issues with the app and setting up their accounts. We have also had issues with the charges.
Frankly, extremely disappointed with this program and the overall response time to one simple issue.
