Moment overview

Moment is a cloud-based classroom management tool that helps kindergartens, summer camps, enrichment programs and schools with parent communication, online signups and staff management. Educators can use it to collaborate with parents, send messages and process payments.

Moment’s parent communication module comes with a dedicated feed, calendar, class schedule and messaging channel. It enables schools to share content, updates, photos and videos using channels such as email, push notifications and posts. The calendar helps teachers and families keep track of events and locations and send alerts in case of holidays. With the class management functionality, administrators can manage rosters, evaluate enrollments and maintain a database of students and parents.

Moment comes with a content management suite that lets teachers and counselors share lesson plans, feedback and program highlights with families. The solution comes with a payment processing tool that includes invoicing, refund management and due date reminders. A customization option allows schools to add charges for extended care, meals and t-shirts.

Moment comes with an online signups feature that assists users with creating registration forms and adding custom questions, waivers, promo codes and discounts. Child care programs can use it to automate applicant submissions, send acceptances, assign courses and deliver messages to families.

Summer camp organizers can use this application to define age and grade requirements and set capacity limits and waitlists. Camp directors can manage logistics and collate data such as drop off points, medical information, allergies and staff schedules. The reporting tool enables administrators to generate reports on enrollment, engagement, finances and class popularity.

Amazing Communications Platform

Review Source: Capterra

Communicating with parents is a critical component of a successful preschool program. Moment allows us to easily send photos and newsletters. The calendar feature keeps the community up to date on holidays and events. Furthermore, the parents love the feature where they are able to communicate directly with each other. On boarding with Moment was a breeze. The customer support is stellar.

Pros
The ease of use is our favorite pro! Our preschool teachers are super busy and we want all of their attention to be focused on the needs of the children. Moment allows our teachers to QUICKLY efficiently and effectively communicate without parents.

Cons
We don't have a CON. Really, Moment is a gem of a communications platform. Staff, faculty, and parents were all very happy that we transferred our communications to Moment.

We love Moment and are excited to continue to improve the communication channels between our school and the parents. Without a doubt this new tool has made it easier for our families to read what is happening in their child's day or about upcoming events from the ease of their phone.

Pros
We love Moment. It has effectively streamlined communication from the school to our parent community. It allows our teachers to share photos and video from the school day so parents feel connected to their child's experience. From the administrative side Moment has been pivotal in communicating upcoming events. We love this product so much we are beginning to use it to register families to our summer program.

Cons
There are not any cons to this software. Any gliche that we have had was promptly solved by their customer service.

We now have all of our communication, registration and staff interactions happen under one roof; Moment! This saves us time and effort, and parents love that they can see what their kids are up to in class from their phone or computer. The staff is really helpful and attentive, and representative has been really wonderful in every aspect. We recommend Moment to all afterschool programs- it'll make your life a lot easier!

Pros
Moment is a really convenient platform for our Language Enrichment Program, located in the Bay Area. We teach hundreds of students Spanish and Mandarin each week, and Moment helps us communicate with parents, as well as collect payment from hundreds of families. The platform is clear, to the point and easy to use!

Cons
Whenever a glitch happens, Moment is always ready to fix it and make the system work for us!

So far so good. I absolutely love the parents' communication feature and so do my clients. They "Moment" me all the time! It helps me stay in touch in real time and allows parents easy access to me, my staff, news and info directly from the app without having to sort through emails. It took me a little while to figure how great and powerful it is. as far as I can tell it's unique to Moment. Customer support has always been excellent and immediate. No complaints

Pros
Moment has helped organize and improve the workflow of all the many components of registration online registration for both me and my clients.

Cons
There's a couple of small er features that I was used to in other systems that they have been slow to implement but they promise it's coming. Sometimes I find the buttons and icons a little vague. Menus are not always intuitive.

I have loved having a single place in which parents can communicate with our Staff and amongst themselves. It gives the parents an opportunity to be part of their child's school life without having to be physically in the classroom.

Pros
I like how effortless the software is to use and personally, it's not complicated. I enjoy that I can work both on my phone and on the computer with Moment.

Cons
My only wish is that I could upload more than 10 pictures at a time.
