Engage families and make parents happy with better knowledge about daily activities

Staff can post photos, activities, meals, incident reports, behavior, needed items, and much more. Configurable push notifications alert parents when a photo or an important event is posted.

Families know immediately what their kid is doing during the day. They don't have to wait pick-up time to find out what happened and can connect to their account anytime, whether they are at work, at home, or away on a trip. It reduces the anxiety of being away from the child not knowing what's happening. Parents will be less stressed and more relaxed leaving their child at your child care.

Protect staff and children by implementing mandated Covid-19 health and safety procedures

Reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission with contactless sign-in and health screening procedures. A fully customizable health questionnaire can be set up each day for parents to sign-in their child. Answers are automatically shared with staff, and archived for easy access and for regulatory compliance.

Daily Connect allows the information to be passed from childcare staff to parents digitally instead of on paper handouts to reduce the spread of germs. Digital signature of incident reports and sign-in forms can be collected via the application. A report with the children temperature readings is easily accessible along many more reports.

Simplify your check-in process and satisfy licensing requirements

Parents can sign-in by scanning a QR Code on their own device, or by entering a unique personal 4-digit pin code on a childcare device. Staff can use the same process to clock-in and out, parent's signature and questionnaire can also be collected during the sign-in/out process. You always know which children are in the facility, and the child/teacher ratio in each classroom. The information is archived and attendance reports are easily accessible to satisfy licensing requirements.

    The Right Solution for our Childcare Centers
    We searched several app options for our chain of 14 childcare centers and Daily Connect was the best solution from functionality to cost to customer service. We have been with them around 2 years and very happy.

    Leah B.
    Child Care Marketing Director

    Great to promote our center
    Prospective parents like the fact that they can see what is happening with their child in the classroom as it happens. They also appreciate the conversations they can have with the classroom teacher. It helps us maintain the ratios that we need to be sure to maintain.

  • Using Daily Connect makes the teacher's lives easier!
    The parents at our center love the app! They like that they can communicate to the teachers and the teachers can communicate to them. Posting photos is another plus for the parents especially when their child just starts, it's nice for them to see how well they are doing!

    The best family communication app!
    I am a teacher and this program makes it so easy to communicate and update families throughout the day. Families love that they can get notifications through the app, and love the pictures that we send. When the end of the year comes and it is time for the children to move to the next classroom it is is so easy to transfer their account to the next classroom. It's the best!

  • Life Changing
    Daily Connect allows my parents to sign in and out without having to use paper. Parents get a report immediately after they sign their child out. It's quick and it's easy!

    Daniella J.
    Child Care Director

    Couldn't live without it!
    I love everything about this system, but most importantly the customer service is outstanding! I have only had to inquire 2 times, and both issues were handled within minutes. The developer directly contacted me via email. I was extremely impressed! Not only is the customer service great, but it is perfect for documentation and communicating with my child care families. I cannot give this program a better review! 10 out of 10!

    Nichole M.

    My staff and parents love it!
    Daily Connect has been a wonderful way for us to get rid of daily tracking papers. Our parents are more engaged, and it makes schoolwide messaging a breeze! On the rare occasions that we have had technical trouble, our questions are answered and problems are resolved quickly. It is amazingly helpful and works nicely with our small business budget!

    Katie K.
    Owner/Asst Director

    Terrific Program! Parents and staff love it!!
    This software is easy to use and offers many options for providing parents with specific details about their child's day. The message function is simple and the attendance tracking feature is useful. We run the app in 9 classrooms and track more than one hundred kids each day, the app is reliable
