- Streamline communication and connect better with parents. Kangarootime's automation with prompts and nudges at the point of care. With reminders on diaper changes, medication administration and nutrition, teachers are able to focus on the important things. Real time photos, daily notes, and messages enable educators to keep parents informed and engaged with their child’s educational journey while providing a multimedia story that helps families connect the learning and developmental environment to what happens at home!

Pros
We truly enjoy using Kangarootime, it is very user friendly, our parents are very happy with the app and all its features.
KangarooTime helps us communicate effectively with our parents, and organize our tuition and paperwork. We love the checking in and out feature.
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.
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.

Kangarootime is very beneficial!

Reviewed 2 years ago

We truly enjoy using Kangarootime, it is very user friendly, our parents are very happy with the app and all its features!

Pros

Kangarootime is a great software program to use in child care settings! Both staff and parents love utilizing the app. The app is great for communication, allergy updates, medical alerts, billing payments, and sending pictures. I love being able to see all the kiddos on my grouping screen throughout the day, as well as my staff.

Cons

There is nothing I don't like about KT! Everything is very user friendly, we enjoy using KT!

Vendor response

Hi Kellie, thank you so much for writing us a review! We're so glad to hear you've enjoyed using our platform at your center! Thank you again for your kind words. If you have any feedback in the future, don't hesitate to reach out!

Kangarootime Pros and Cons

Reviewed 4 years ago

Kangarootime has been easy to navigate as far as invoices and billing. The team that we were set up with to launch the app for our school was phenomenal and responded quickly. The PDF files of "How-To" for Kangarootime that were provided for us to share with new families were very helpful as well.

Pros

This software has features that allow childcare centers to communicate with families as well as send pictures of their children.

Cons

The app does not notify families when a photo has been sent and our teachers find it difficult to manage the "rooming" feature. The function of tagging children in photos seems to be more difficult and has more steps than other apps that I have used in other daycare centers.

Vendor response

Hi Daria - Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about Kangarootime. We're thrilled to hear our invoices and billing are easy to navigate, and that our customer service has been so helpful. We will share the parent communication feedback with our product teamif you have any additional feedback in the future, please reach out to us!

Kangarootime is ALWAYS there for your child care business' success!

Reviewed 3 months ago
Pros

Kangarootime is always there for me and my team whenever we have questions or need a solution! Kangarootime is always thorough and makes sure that their customers are happy and able to run their school as safe as they possibly can!

Cons

Right now my biggest complaint with Kangarootime would be that Point of Care can only be used on a tablet or Mac (able to get the app). My work computer is a desktop and I do not always have access to a tablet. I wish that Point of Care was able to be accessed on the computer AND tablet! I love that there is an app, just wish there was an option for admin. who do not always have access to a tablet.

Vendor response

Hi Ashley, thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review! We love to hear that our team has been there to help you along the way. We've heard your feedback regarding Point of Care and are actively working on a solution. Stay tuned! Thank you again for your review.

Parent Communication and Updates

Reviewed 3 months ago

Great! My staff and families love it! It is easy to use and easy to read.

Pros

Parents love the updates on the app, pictures are easy to see, and it shows each days report. Billing is much easier and auto pay can be turned on and you will see detailed messages if payments are returned, pending or failed with an explanation. Multiple parents can be set as primary guardian and can get message notifications.

Cons

You cannot send individual messages to the staff.

Vendor response

Hi Karly, Thanks so much for taking the time to write us a review! We're so glad to hear your parents love the app and that billing is easier for your team. We're always looking for feedback to improve our product and we appreciate your response. Thank you again!

Overall our experience has been good.

The excellent customer support we always receive. And the fact that they take our ideas and implement them the best they can.

Invoices don't go through like they are supposed to on some families. Which causes frustrations.
