We tried switching for a cheaper program and found it just wasn't worth it. Keeping the lines of communication open with our parents is what sells our center.

Pros
Ease of adding things to a child's portfolio, daily reports,notes, ect..

Cons
I wish I had more customization options such as behavior management or developmental screening.

Review Source: Capterra

in conclusion, this tools just blew my mind away, it is great and has it all. I recommend it big time

Pros
I really loved the amount of tools and reports also the functionalities HiMama provides. The price in comparison to the return value to outstanding and very commendable. User interface is well built and the graphics are catchy.

Cons
I think the many functionalities can be a bit overwhelming at first to get used to and at the beginning it might take a bit too much time using it but after a while it gets easier and fun. I am not very sure of the security standards built within especially as it transmits daily schedule and videos making it a tool of some private content.

Parent Communication is important to us. Recording Learning Journals on a Daily Basis and Administration Ease.

Pros
The new user interface and upgrade carried out by HI MAMA is the best on the market. It has made the app, easy to use, functional and exactly what the customer needs. We ran demo's with over 15 apps from around the world and this app stood out the most.

Cons
Cost should reflect situation in markets. Monthly subscription can become expensive with all the add ons.

Review Source: Capterra

I looked into several different apps. and chose Hi Mama. Hi Mama had the best overall features I was looking for. I wanted to be able to track and assess the children growth/ progress. I wanted a quicker and better way to communicate with our parents and give them a way to see their child's day. Plus I had a couple teachers that struggled with implementing the foundations. I got that and so much more with Hi Mama.

Pros
Easy to use Adds Foundations Parent communication tool and parents can see their child's day. Great tool for teachers to record the day, use for conferences, and for portfolios

Cons
It was expensive for a small center like ours and we still would love to use more of the features that Hi Mama has to offer us, but we just cannot afford it.

I think it's a great program and great idea. I do feel it could be more user-friendly for my staff that isn't as tech savvy! I also wish I didn't have to pay so much to have each classroom separate. We are currently sharing in between programs to cut costs. it would be nice if I could use it in all 4 programs for a more affordable price.

Pros
I love the idea behind it.

Cons
It's not as user-friendly as it could be

The educators are using less time documenting. They are actually documenting more however using less time. Himama makes it so easy to do this. I also love the print outs of sleep checks and schedules. really cool.

Pros
i love that parents contact me or stop me in the hallways and tell me how great it is that they have such good communication with their child's teacher!

Cons
The glitches. i also think that the extra package to keep track of employees time etc should be included in the price tag

Best Communitcation Tool Ever

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

Using the Hi Mama app has been great. The staff finds it easy to use in comparison to writing everything by hand every day. The support when we have an issue has also been great. When we email the response is fast and easy to implement. The parents can not say enough good stuff about the app. They love the photos throughout the day and the fact that they have the menu available to them when meal planning for at home. The price is also very affordable and it is worth every penny.

Pros
I like how easy it is to learn how to use it. We have quite a few supply staff and they all have been able to master inputting the information when are covering for a full-time staff.

Cons
My Staff tells me that the domains for the Toddlers are not useful. Also, it would be handy sometimes if there was a blank space to put in their own idea, such as the mood for the day.

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
I really like all the features HiMama has. We are not using it for that long and it is already of great help. Imagine when we master the use of HiMama! But, what I like the most is the reaction of the parents when they receive something generated by HiMama software. That gives our center a sense of "high class" institution.

Cons
To me it's a little pricey. I think $10 to $15 less on the monthly fee would be fair, or they could allow to create more than one classroom for the price.

I like the ease and paperless way the parents get a daily snapshot of what their children are doing during the day.

Pros
The cost and the flexibility to get the cost to adjust to my budget.

Cons
I don’t like the phone in the staffs hands all the time. It distracts them from the children. I had to make the rule to only make entries during nap time.
