Pros
We love that it beeps and you can see when a family will arrive. We love that the teachers can have students ready.
Amazing App-Easy to use, great time management, Efficient attendance tracking, and safe.
Very good - it is reliable and efficient, and the parents are happy.
Cons
I'm not sure if's an internet issue but it has caused some frustration. Parents are sometimes confused about how to add authorized drivers.
Sometimes on mobile devices the system accidentally clicks on another student to check out.
The frequent updates made it difficult for some families to keep up with the app and it would lead to them not being able to check in/out their child.

Support for Classroom Teachers on Arrival of Family

Reviewed 3 months ago

We have loved using Fetch Kids. We started this in the Fall of 2020. The light was gong away and we could no longer see cars upon arrival. We were unable to have kids ready for their parents. Now, with using Fetch Kids we have the ability to see how long until our parents arrive, we can have children packed up and ready to go and then they leave in a timely manner. The classrooms are able to see all of this information to have children prepped. The parents enjoy having their kids ready to go with a smile! It has made the transition of not having parents in the building much easier and allowed us to prep!

Pros

We love that it beeps and you can see when a family will arrive. We love that the teachers can have students ready.

Cons

It would be nice to separate families out more. When we have families that are divorced, we do not have the ability to send to both parents. It would be nice to have that option.

Vendor response

Thanks so much for your positive review of FetchKids! We very much appreciate your taking the time time to give us feedback. We do have a joint custody feature for divorced parents where both can receive notifications as primary parents. Please contact us and we'll fill you in on how to use it.

FetchKids Review

Reviewed 3 months ago

Overall it's been a very good dismissal tool for us.

Pros

I like that FetchKids has a clean, easy-to-read interface.

Cons

There have been some occasions when FetchKids shows a parent is several minutes away and then the parent calls our office to say they have been outside waiting for their kids for a while. I'm not sure if's an internet issue but it has caused some frustration. Parents are sometimes confused about how to add authorized drivers. I also would like to disable the "chat" feature because we don't check it and parents are under the impression that they can communicate with us through that tool.

Vendor response

Your feedback is very important to us. Thanks so much for taking the time to help us make our app better. 1) Parents who are showing up outside - please ask them to update their app, as they are most likely running a version that is out of date. 2) Authorized Adults - Adding Authorized Adults is explained on Help screens on the Settings page. Please ask parents to contact us at support@fetchkids.com if they need our help. 3) Chat - thanks for this suggestion. We'll plan to update the app later this year so you can turn on/off the chat feature. Thanks again for taking the time to give us your helpful feedback!

Fetch Kids, its a great system for your school

Reviewed 3 months ago
Pros

Great way to check students in and out.

Cons

Does provided a list who were not checked out of fetch kids at the end of the day.

Vendor response

Thanks so much for your review. With regard to viewing students who haven't been checked out at the end of the day, if you use Attendance/Drop Off, you can see the students listed there. Your suggestion is an excellent one - to add the ability to view students on the Pick up list who are still at school. We'll plan to add this feature in the near future. Thanks again for your constructive feedback! It's a huge help to us and we are always working to update features to make it more useful for you!
