Pros: Ability to document information regarding daily activities and communicate with parents., which helps parents feel more connected with their child's experience. Ability to link to NAEYC for documentation and accreditation. Ability to include Indian Foundations and use for developmental portfolios ( observations and individual goals for each child.

Cons: Unable to temporarily store information. For example, if I am entering an observation and am unable to finish, there is no way to temporarily hold that info. If I have to stop in the middle, of entering an observation or newsletter post, then I have start over. It would be helpful if there was a save feature similar to the save or save and publish feature in the observation and newsletter sections like the one in the lesson plan section.

Pros: That I can see my sons daily activities right in my phone . I don't have to wonder when he's napping, and it makes it much easier to schedule a convenient pick up time.

Cons: It looks a little dated. I wish the graphics were a little better, but it doesn't impact my overall experience that much.

Pros: I love the Direct communication with my child care provider and seeing when and who checks my child in and out. I also love the ability to see what my child is doing throughout the day, from what activities they are doing, what and how much he ate of his snacks and lunches, his 'potty' times including any accidents, how long he naps for and just being able to access this information at real time any time during the day. I also enjoy being able to be sent pictures of my child as well.

Pros: I know what my child is doing at the moment. I know when they're eating breakfast, resting, going out to play, and there check in and out time. life cubby really gives me a peace of mind knowing my child events during the day. other things I like is I know when their eating lunch, having a snack, eating dinner. I also like that I receive these reports instantly. that's the best thing about life cubby it gives me the peace of mind to carry on with my day knowing my child is safe. Everything is great. if I could change anything about the life cubby I would add
a built in camera so that I can see exactly what is happen through cameras. I think that would be great.

Overall: security of knowing my child is engaging and knowing their safe.

When I get an email update, I don't know what the update is. From the email link, it takes me to the LO in page and then I have to search around for what message is being sent to me. Would be easier to directly link to whatever message, pic, etc is being sent to me.
Not very easy to send message back- only a comments section.

Pros: It gives parents direct access through a single website to a variety of different functions - whether it is from being able to access menus or curriculum, to seeing daily observation sheets, to getting eBlasts from teachers. It does provide an easy center for all the information to be contained together.

Cons: LifeCubby is pretty limiting and not user-friendly in my opinion. Although they do offer many different features that parents would love to see within an early childhood center or school through virtual access, the accessibility to download/upload information is quite old school. For daily observations, only 5 pictures may be uploaded at a time through a very old format for picture uploads and there are not many simple options for one to edit or change around information upon being sent out.

Overall: Easy center for parents to get online access to many of our materials/resources.

Pros: The ability to send pictures to the parents. We have a lot of first time parents and this feature helps ease their minds with dropping their child off. LifeCubby is a great selling point during a tour of the building. We are a large center and LifeCubby has made our infant and Toddler teachers lives so much easier.

Cons: They only thing I would say and my teachers have said id that the app closes down on them when they are in it. They have busy times in the day and the app will close. This can slow down the process and when you have babies needing attention you do not want the process to slow down.

Overall: The use of LifeCubby has removed the use of paper sheets in the classroom and reduced the need for phone calls.

Pros: I like that the phone application will notify me whenever something happens with my child at the day care. I like that I don't need to keep a window open or repeatedly

Cons: I wish that the phone application could cache information so it was available offline. It can be hard to separate limitations of the software with how the day care uses the software, so I mostly wish it was used more.

I also wish the application worked a little better on touchscreens. Our day care has the LifeCubby site up on a touchscreen TV, and it's easy for people with larger fingers to have a hard time checking their child in for the day.

Pros: I like being able to communicate with parents, when the system works. I honestly cannot say much more in the "pros" area, as I do not feel this is the most functional system on the market. I have used the Tadpoles system in the past, and not only is it highly easy to use and access, but I did not ever question if what I put in was going to come through on the other side. I frequently question Life Cubby, as I have had multiple times where something did not post or a lesson plan was erased. I suppose you could chalk it up to "user error," but I am highly proficient on the computer, and if I could not figure it out, my husband is an engineer - he would be able to help me. Though, to state again, I am highly proficient on the computer. I have been using them my whole life...I highly doubt that it is "user error." I have also been working with Life Cubby for three years, and it seems my hatred for it grows each day. The Tadpoles system is far more efficient than Life Cubby.

Cons: There are SO many bugs! There is a LOT about LC that could be done more efficiently, and it is SUCH a cantankerous system! Some days it works, some days it doesn't...you never really know what you are going to get. It is the most basic system, which really leaves NO reason why it should not be consistently functional. Between the LC system and the Tadpoles system, that I have previously used, I would pick Tadpoles EVERY TIME. There have been multiple times where I have entered something into LC, and it does not come out on the parent end - which makes it look like I am not doing my job. That is not okay. I need to be able to trust that once I enter something in for a parent to see, that it goes through and is seen on their end. I am NOT a fan of Life Cubby, and only use it because that is the system that my child care center uses. I also have some parents who feel the same.

Overall: In a serious way, I do not think that I get any benefits from this software. I honestly think that working with paper copies of things would be more efficient than the Life Cubby system. You have the potential to be a great product, but the current functionality of it has it sitting at "The undersecretary of only okay." Unless improvements are made, Life Cubby will not be the president...it will only ever be the undersecretary.

Pros: I like that it gives us a chance to communicate with parents on a low key level, many times we just want to give them a little note but not make it a big deal.

Cons: The change that was made about a year ago has been hard for me to get used to. Many times I have to spend several minutes trying to find what was easy before the change was made

Pros: Potential information on a daily basis. If I don't bring her in, I can see what time she arrived. The pictures show the children actively engaged with the activity. It's nice to see what they are doing.

Cons: Not all areas are being used. The categories are there with nothing available. It would be nice to see the menu, behavior reports, newsletters and the other catagories that come up blank for me. I love the idea that all of the information can be reached via my phone.

Overall: Whenever there is a new post, I get a notification. I may not be able to see the pictures right away, but they will come it. There is peace of mind knowing how much Bloom Academy cares about the children's well being and maintaining contact with the care givers.

Pros: It's not a paper document. I like it when it is working properly. It has all the parts of our day that need to be documented.

Cons: How often we have to use paper because LC isn't working properly. Sometimes pieces disappear or change without warning (i.e. Words disappear from my Lesson Plans when I save them, some days we can send messages back and forth with parents, some days parents send us a message but there is no option or even text box to reply, etc.)

Overall: It is easier than pen and paper documentation.

Overall: LifeCubby makes me job easier and the parents happier because they can be actively involved in their child's activities at school.

It is a standard setup with a place for goals, standards and schedule which is good. Perhaps my group needs to revisit customizing template for lesson plan. I wish I could process the information like MS word program adding bullets and different fonts and things but it is fine for storing lesson plan. Just hard to read.

Pros: I like that it's a window into my kid's day. I think the ability to get pictures of my kid. Also, the app hasn't crashed or froze yet.

Cons: Right now we only use the "morning in take", "daily sheets" and the pictures. The morning intake has text over top of text. Also, it uses "bottle" but I breastfeed outside of day care hours. The selection icons for daily sheets doesn't need to be that big, or there at all... at first I didn't realize I could scroll down to see previous days.
One nice things might be to allow parents to submit events in the calendar that are specific to their kid... to communicate to the staff that we'll be in late due to a doctors appt or we'll be out for vacation.

I would like more feedback of videos of what my child is doing at daycare. Also, if the daycare is choosing not to use some of the drop down menu options be able to hide them from the parents. Such as I do not see a newsletter, menus, lesson plans, assessments. Maybe the Center uses them for the older kiddos but maybe have it to where we can hide those that are not being used. Also, as a parent not sure what to do in the home journal part. I am not sure there was a tutorial on all the drop down options or maybe each center uses the app differently.

Cons: I want to be able to view pictures in an easier way that allows me to save, edit, rotate, and move from one picture to another in the case of multiples. I would like text reader friendly also.

Pros: Shows pictures from staff and updates through day.

Provides daily sheet allowing us to see our sons progress.

Cons: App text overlaps itself making a section unreadable on iOS 10.

App itself is not very easy to use. We got used to it, but it's not easy to comprehend at first. I assume I'm using all of the functionality but I'm not sure.

Pros: It's organized and makes it easy to see what's going on with your little one throughout the day. I love the ability for my care provider to add photos.

Cons: It's not clear what all the comments pertain to. For example, in the diaper/potty section there are comments that appear to have been filled in by the care provider but the user or parent cannot see what those comments relate to.

Pros: Paperless communication with my daughters instructors. I appreciate being able to stay updated throughout the day through her daily sheet.

Cons: It's not really the softwares fault, but the daily sheet only gets updated when the teach updates it - for example, yesterday, according to my daughters daily sheet, she's still napping from 1pm yesterday - obviously that is not true over 24 hours later.

Vendor Response

by LifeCubby on August 02, 2017

We appreciate your review of LifeCubby Brigitte. Notifications do not occur on daily sheet activities such as diaper changes, naps, meals, etc. When observations and good job are posted, you should receive a notification. If you are not getting notifications for that, uninstall and reinstall the app and give the app permissions to send you notifications. Everything else that is on the daily sheet is posted in real time and you can look at it any time to see what has been documented for your child. Please call the office if you have any questions. 614-423-7815.

Pros: The parent App, the ability to track the milestones (the developmental categories). It makes communicating with parents much easier.

Cons: Uploading pictures, Archived Students, and there always seems to be issues with it being "down". It times out to quickly and does not save your work. It does not default to your classroom when you are logged in. It should also default to normal stool when entering a BM during potty/diaper changes.

Overall: Ease of communication!!!!

Pros: I like the concept of LifeCubby of having the daily sheets and pictures of the activities. when it works properly it is a good tool to have. also, I love the email blast. It is a good tool that helps improve communication with parents.

Cons: I think that is still room for improvement such as developing a more efficient app that communicates with the computer version of it. On the app, after the last update, it is slower and it takes a long time to input information; for example, if we are log in diaper changes, we have to click in boxes every time information is logged in, instead of just clicking on a child.
As well as the ability to upload pictures is very limited. The whole concept is that we can share pictures of the child with their families and 4 or 6 does not make the cut as the classrooms have more than 4 - 6 children.
Also, when I tried to remove/withdraw a child from the LifeCubby it goes to the pending status instead of being removed. The archive feature does not really archives them and instead it sends them to a pending status.
Along with that when I am trying to withdraw a child, even after I managed to really archive a child, there is no feature to disconnect the parent from LifeCubby. Parents still connected with the center after many years.

Pros: We love the real time information provided for our parents - especially of the littles re: diapers, naps, etc. For our older kiddos, the quick checklists for observations is wonderful. Another plus is being able to quickly pull up last year's lesson plans has been invaluable for current year planning. The parents love being able to see pictures of the activities their children come home talking about.

Cons: Because we are a small school, I would have to say that I wish there was a smaller tier of payment / # of students option instead of having to jump from 15 to 30 kiddos when we've only needed 17 or 18 kiddos at most.

Overall: Real time communication with parents / quick observations with pics and activity purposes, etc.

Hi Maria! Thank you for your review of LifeCubby. We are going to be working on the messaging system in LifeCubby. If you are using the messaging system in the APP, to send a private message, go to the messaging tool and click on a student. When all students are messaged, that is because the comment was made on a form, observation, etc that has several children tagged. Look for that update in the next few weeks! If you have any questions, please call us at 614-423-7815.

LifeCubby has been amazing! The families and the staff LOVE it!

Pros: The software speaks 'our terms' and we do not have to start from the beginning when sharing information with our families, doing observations, noting significant events or getting forms and information out to the families we serve.

Cons: So far we have been pleased. We have seen Life Cubby grow right along with the children in our care. It seems as if almost weekly they are updating the software. I really can't think of any cons at this point. The only ones mentioned by my colleagues is the cost, which I see as a savings in paper and time. They just have to try it and they will buy it!

Pros: How easy it was to use life cubby. How simple it was to manuver throughout the app and send communication to parents.

Cons: How limited it was. It was more that could be added to expand the app and better the app. Add a inbox to make it easier to communicate room to room.

Overall: Easy to use !

Pros: I love how LifeCubby opens the lines of communication between the school and parents. As a parent, it's great to be able to see how my son's day is going, and as a school administrator it's awesome to be able to send updates and messages to parents via LifeCubby.

Cons: The app can be a little buggy at times. There are times when functionality does not work consistently or notifications don't show up and clear as they should.

Pros: The best feature is the ability to send pictures of our child directly to our phone. Getting updates on the what and how much your child is eating very helpful in figuring out what your child needs after they are picked up.

Cons: Push notifications seem to be erratic. I wish the app would notify me every time a picture is added to the app.

Pros: Daily sheets is useful and we use it daily to check on our son at daycare. Unfortunately, it malfunctions a lot. I also like the observations function because we get to see photos through it. However, those photos are poor quality and the interface is clunky.

Cons: Most of the functions don't work, slow and clumsy looking interface, poor picture quality. Looks and acts like it was designed by a beginner.

Overall: I can check in on my son's progress throughout the day.

Good information provided, but hard to find the info when I'm looking for it; duplicate notification

Jun 05, 2017
3/5
Overall
2 / 5
Ease of Use
3 / 5
Features & Functionality

Pros: Comprehensive information about my child's day, with ability to note amount of foods consumed at meals

Cons: It's cumbersome to find the information I'm looking for. For example, the meal information is only provided in the daily sheet as part of a lengthy, comprehensive summary of the day. Meals could be a separate section, rather than embedded within the daily sheet. Also, food is with respect to % with no relative unit. It would be more helpful to know how much he is eating/drinking with respect to ounces or cups. Finally, the Creme de la Creme facility our child attends only uses the School Observations and Daily Sheets portions of the app, so many of the other areas with posted information are unavailable to us because they are simply not used/developed by our facility.

Pros: I love knowing the exact times when my child arrives at school and is picked up. I also love being notified of any highlight of my child's day.

Cons: I think there is still a lot of exploring with different features to do. I believe that schools could create an incredible impact on the level of parent/teacher communication with this app.

Pros: Eliminates the need for paper, photos and observations stored together, and I don't miss any classroom announcements.

Cons: Wish observations were organized better such as month/year so I could go back in time more easily. Wish it were easier to save pictures and memories from the application.

Overall

Ease of Use

Features & Functionality

Pros: I like the ease of using the app and getting so much information about what my son is doing at daycare each day. The daily sheets let me keep track of how he's doing and whether he's staying on schedule throughout the day.

Cons: The hardest thing is that this program is limited by the amount of time a teacher is able to put in to updating. For an infant classroom, this is obviously not the focus and sometimes it's easier to just write down the information on the paper copies of the daily sheets rather than enter on the computer. Some days the only entries are the drop-off time and his lesson plans.

Pros: I like that I can get updates throughout the day about my son. Sometimes I check the app and can see that he just fell asleep, so I delay my pickup a little bit so that he can get some rest, which helps me stay a little longer at work too! Sometimes I also forget to tell the teachers something, and I can just send them a quick message through the app, which I easier and faster than calling and leaving a message.
