Improve parent satisfaction

Parents know immediately what their kid is doing during the day. They don't have to wait for the end of the day to find out what happened. They 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 the day care.



A tool for caregivers and for parents

Parents can also enter information when the baby is at home. For instance they can tell at what time the baby woke up in the morning before going to the day care, or when he ate and how much. The day care staff will also have access to this information via the program, this information will be very important for the staff to know when to give the next feeding or the next nap. This information trail is also useful for day care shift change, and when the baby is going back home.







Better accuracy of record, better care for children

The information from previous days is easily accessible. Parents and caregivers can easily see what happened the previous day to find out if new patterns are emerging. They can also see what activity the child has done the previous day to develop a new activity or a new skill the next day.



An app for everybody

Daily Connect is available to everybody: as a native application on iPhone, iPad, Android, and Kindle Fire, or as a free web application from any browser. The application can be used by teachers, directors and by parents. Parents who don't want to use the app and register will still receive a summary email in their mailbox at the end of the day.

  • 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!

    Daily Connect is one of the most popular things new families comment on when they join our school. Parents are use to using technology in their daily routines and felt that the "paper" reports were outdated!

  • 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.
