Amie Claire Cabildo

Simplified Section

2020-06-23

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.

feedback

2020-06-26

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

The teachers work has been very easy in doing observation and sending them to parents. parents can monitor their children's progress anytime.

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.

Easy use, all-in-one nursery management software

2020-11-05

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.

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.

Parent Review

2019-10-15

The overall experience using the parent app is wonderful and the platform delivers on what they promised our setting, we highly recommend the parent app and the customer service is of high standard and quality.

Pros

I like that everything is on 1 platform eg. educational goals & objectives, routine updates, permissions, check-in/out and that the customer service is fast and effective

Cons

The mealtime updates - it's time consuming using the lists for the staff That posts at times don't update and that parents find it difficult to use the app The EYFS trackers aren't updated and we can still see the previous year's updates that makes for a bit of confusion among the staff

Hello Leandre,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. I'm very happy that you like our platform and it's the user-friendly interface and having everything in one platform. Here at Parent, we work hard on delivering the ultimate all-in-one platform to meet all your childcare management needs while keeping ease of use at the core of our design.

However, I am sorry to hear that you have found the meal updates to be time-consuming and we have taken that into consideration and the new meal update is much simpler and we hope that it is less time-consuming. We have also worked on improving the post-experience and updating the EYFS trackers.

Efficient and Saves Time

2019-12-09

My overall experience with Parent is great. Although there might be glitches at times but it gets solved very quickly. There are still some features that we would love to have on the app, and I hope they work on it. The App itself is very quick and convenient to use, we can even post updates from home especially for last-minute announcements.

Pros

What I really like the most about this app is that its functionality and interface is like Facebook.

Cons

What I liked least about this app is that the option for parents to post (not to make observations) is unavailable. Also, the option to attach documents via private messaging is unavailable too at the moment, although I believe this will be coming out soon.

A great app and with a wonderful support team

2019-11-04

Pros

It is a one stop shop for all communication in our nursery with parents and between staff.

Cons

The only issue we face is when we upload photos from the galley, it takes you to the first photo taken and not the last. When you have 6000 photos in the gallery, it is a lot of scrolling down.

My personal views about the Parent

2020-06-23

I like the way that the children’s photos can be place into their personal file in the media . I just find it inconvenient and time consuming tagging the pictures individually. I hope that I can tag in one go.

Pros

It is easy, handy and awesome way to go paperless on passing out documents to the parents.

Cons

The tagging of photos individually was time consuming. I observe that as we have so many newsfeeds, it gets a bit slower to find old post.

We are sorry to hear that you are finding tagging in photos is time-consuming and we will look into it. It is designed so only the children in the photo would have their images under their profile and it is not sent to the children who were not part of the photo. We will also make sure our team checks the newsfeed.
