Easy use, all-in-one nursery management software

Reviewed 2 years ago

We have saved so much of our budget from not having to print so much and now we can use that budget esle where! The app is definately worth it!

Pros

I absolutely love the inspirations library; it makes it so fast and easy to prepare activities and serves as a database for all our activities that we can easily find and use again. The new survey feature has been helpful during the covid-19 pandemic, as we can create daily health surveys as required by the authorities. The documents module is also a great feature, now we can keep all our documents in one central place that is easily accessible by staff and we can share documents with parents directly.

Cons

It would be a nice to have a feature so the parents are able to upload documents from their portal in to the child's profile. It would save the admin a lot of time.

Vendor response

Dear Nicky, We are glad you are enjoying the inspirations and surveys features. Regarding the parents document uploading we will definitely study your request. Best regards Parent Team

Good

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Overall, I really like the advantage that it gives any institution to cut out on their paper waste. Moreover, believe it is clear for the user.

Cons

I believe the news section could be improved, adding the option of selecting what news you would like to see. It would also be a good idea to be able to search for content posted on the app. It would also be nice if when reading a document from the documents section and wanting to go back, the app didn't take you to the first folder.

Vendor response

Hi Laia, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. we are thrilled that your child care center has gone paperless with Parent. We are also very happy to hear that the application is user-friendly which is always one of our top priorities. We appreciate your feedback regarding the newsfeed and we are working on adding search functionality to make finding posts easier.

Reviewed 2 years ago

i have been using this app for 2 years now. I am very happy we chose this app. its bee great in terms of maintaining and checking children progress , parents have given good feedback. teacher and parent friendly. have not started using the accounts section yet but will start soon.

Pros

this is a very easy to use app with all features which are useful . it keeps us connected to staff, admin and parents. The teachers work has been very easy in doing observation and sending them to parents. parents can monitor their children's progress anytime. As a manger I can monitor my staff how they are working with each child.

Cons

it should have a features where photos can be made like videos or slide show and music can be edited. one we make event calendar we should have option first to create and then send it to parents. cause while creating the event calendar multiple messages goes to parents which sometimes annoys them.

Cons

Nothing - but you need to know that you need to populate the App with data so it will take some of your time

Simplified Section

Reviewed 2 years ago

Our main problem is to communicate with the parent and it was solve via Parent.

Pros

Since we are checking the attendance of enrolments on a monthly basis it takes time for us in accounts to update the current number of enrolments by class and monitoring a 5 branches its a tough job specially if the registrar wasn't able to update their class list, hence by if the app was properly configure and teachers are using it to do the attendance of their own class it quite easy to access and update accounts records.

Cons

I believe it should be simplified by menu like for example - Accounts under that like billing, attendance etccc. and for Academic side should simplified like the reports,photos should have consent/without consent to social media just click, activities etccc.

Vendor response

Hello Amie, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are pleased to hear that the application has solved the parent communication problem.

Great app which is not stopping to grow

Reviewed 6 months ago

Parent is a great communication tool for nurseries and parents. It is making the process of sharing information with families so much easier and faster.

Pros

There are a lot of great features on the app. The daily reports, event planning, the calendar, etc. The more I work with it the more hidden treasures I find. One just really needs the training to understand all the features and be able to use them.

Cons

Anything I suggested to improve or change, as it would fit better our needs or make the app in general easier to use, has been taken on by the team. We have never been disappointed by the team.

Vendor response

Dear Jasmin, Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a great compliment. We appreciate you recommending Parent in your comment. All the best, Parent Team
