    I helped implement this in my center when I worked for ELI. I loved it as an administrator, and now I love the software as a parent.

    I love that I get updates on what my child is doing at pre-school. It gives me peace of mind and helps me feel connected to his classroom.

    Cons
    There is no option for staff anniversaries and showing birthdays report. I can't add in both parents, in order to do so both parents need to have an email which I think is ridiculous.

    I find the lack of updates minimal and teacher’s have said they struggle to figure out how to enter information into LifeCubby.

    Reliable & User-friendly

    Reviewed 4 months ago

    I am impressed with the service and i will give them five stars. I highly recommended to anyone who are tensed about their children.

    Pros

    If you are tensed for your children in the daycare centre then i can say that there is nothing to worry about if you have LifeChubby software. We are using it for many years and we can ensure you that it is best for you because of its excellent features. Easy to interact with parrents as well as you can monitor your children wherever you are.

    Cons

    I didn’t find any negative things but it would be better if it more quick after last update. Because i found it slower after the last update.

    LifeCubby

    Reviewed a year ago

    LifeCubby is a great basic software, but there is a LOT of room for improvement so that schools like mine don't have to use multiple systems and softwares.

    Pros

    I like that the parents get an app to access their child's daily reports. Saves on paper!

    Cons

    I don't like that they haven't been able to update the software easily to adapt to the pandemic rules. Since it is common place now to have to ask the covid questions, it should of been added immediately so that we could enter it on the children's daily reports. The fact that they cannot add a space for us to include questions becomes EXTREMELY time consuming on our side. I don't like that we can't customize our attendance reports so that we can easily print them for our state reimbursements monthly. We have to add a bunch of data after we print the basic report.

    Great Concept, Needs optimization

    Reviewed a year ago

    I, personally, am not solving business problems with this app. But I imagine that my childrens' school is solving communication issues with parents and teachers, allowing them to speak in real time throughout the day. It also allows the school to document, in writing, that they have provided certain information to parents. I LOVE the concept of this app and hope some optimization is planned to increase the user-friendliness.

    Pros

    The intended use of this software is a great concept- to facilitate communication between teachers and parents; and exchange documentation and photographs on a secure platform. The best thing about this app is the "Daily Sheet", which is available to seen in real time for each child. The Daily Sheet provides information about the child's day, such as food eaten, diaper changes, mood, nap times, etc.. It's a HUGE help to know how your child's day went and how that may affect their time at home.

    Cons

    The app is clunky and not user friendly. It can be difficult to navigate and the messaging feature, for example, does not work consistently nor intuitively. When I click on the message icon, I expect to see a thread of prior messages between myself and the teacher/classroom, but random messages often disappear. Also, there is a notification icon if something new is added to the child's page, but it doesn't disappear even after you've checked the new item. It gives the impression that you should still be looking for a 'new item' which could be a message, photo, incident report, menu, or some other type of documentation. There is also a character limit in the message section that is pretty short- a couple sentences maybe.

    LifeCubby has been so helpful to keep in contact with the families in my classroom.

    Reviewed 4 months ago

    Teaching is a job where we don't have much downtime and we have to always be so attentive to the children for their well-being and safety, so I really appreciate how much time LifeCubby saves me as I relay information to the parents about how their child's day is going.

    Pros

    When using LifeCubby, it is so much faster to input things like meals and diaper changes than writing it all out on paper. With LifeCubby one can input the naptimes of the children with a few simple taps on the screen, instead of writing it on multiple different papers. One can do so much more with this software than could ever be done on paper daily reports. One could send all of the families a reminder via the class note feature or take pictures to share and use in documentation. One could document medicine has been given or input meals.

    Cons

    The only thing I have had trouble with is sharing some videos that are a bit longer, like a few minutes, it has said the file is too large.

    Speaking from Childcare Software Expert

    Reviewed 7 months ago

    Overall I think our company has been pretty happy with LifeCubby. Mainly because of how "easy to use" it seems to be for all users. It also doesn't often go under repair, or seem to be out of commission. Which is super helpful for the business and families.

    Pros

    It has been super easy to train staff to use this software, as well as getting new parents used to using it. From the admin standpoint, navigating around the software, like adding new kids or staff is really easy. So if it's someone's first experience with Childcare Software, this is a super easy one to learn how to.

    Cons

    I've used other childcare software programs, at least three others, and I've found that LifeCubby has the least about of features that I am used to. Sure the main ones that everyone wants is there and available, but the "extras" seem to be slim on this program specifically.
