Pros: The software allows for updates hourly/daily and it's really easy to use as well. You won't be disappointed especially with the affordable price.

Cons: This is a nice app/software but it could do better with more functionality. There's so much room for that.

Pros: I absolutely love the new ACH payment feature, I love that I can upload pics to each child's portfolio, that I can log assessments right into LifeCubby, Do our lesson planning, and post our Daycare's calendar for every parent to see.

Cons: There is not really a least favorite about LifeCubby. I am not sure if it is available yet, but would love to see a section for keeping track of the daycare's expenses for tax purposes. This system is so user frienedly

Pros: I like that it is very user friendly and easily accessible for parents to see what their child is doing and experiencing throughout the day.

Cons: I feel that aesthetically, the interface can be more modernized and updated. It is too easy for a teacher to erroneously check out a child, before the child leaves for the day. Teachers have to practically carry around an iPad in order to complete it for each child, which is not a good use of their time, nor is that high quality education, especially if we don't have any screen time at our school.

Overall: It is much quicker to communicate to the parent about the child as opposed to writing it on daily sheets, therefore saving paper.

Pros: It is so convenient to have all the information I need for my little ones in one place on LifeCubby. My daughters teacher has recently started using the Lesson Plans feature and so neat to see what she's doing for the week so I can ask her about it. Getting to explore the different tabs for everything is actually kind of fun for me!

Cons: Almost everything about LifeCubby is great. If I were to change one thing, or improve upon it, it would be on the notifications within the app. I got a notification that my son had a "directors message" which was noted on his photo by an exclamation point. I have read the message and opened it multiple times, however, the exclamation point remains. This keeps making me think there is a new message when there's not. I'm sure this is just a little bug that can be easily fixed.

Thank you Ashley for your review of LifeCubby. The explanation point will remain for 24 hours. However, the color should change from purple to gray once the message has been read. If it turns purple again, then you have a new message.

Pros: I love the ability to see my child's day as it is happening in real time. It gives me another mode of communication with the teachers. I also love the observations. It is handy to see all everything on the app on my phone.

Cons: I do not like the fact that I can not watch videos on my phone or online. I have to download each video to my computer. I would love to be able to do that. I just don't have time to do them on my computer at work.

Pros: I really enjoyed the fact that this program was easy to understand, the fact that is user friendly, and that the program is affordable. In my experience childcare management programs tend to be very expensive, so it was a nice surprise to hear that life cubby was so affordable.

Cons: I wish that there was a user tutorial that showed users how to actually use the program when they first install it instead of having to figure it out themselves which can be very timconsuming and frustrating.

Overall: I was able to easily get in contact with parents if a problem were to arise which was a real game changer compared to other softwares I have used in the past.

Pros: Program is really great for daily/hourly updates. I love how you can keep track of what your child ate and when, as well as their sleeping schedule. Has the ability to send real time photos of your child at play, as well as update you on the school, finances, and curriculum.

Cons: Have ran into a few bugs here or there, but nothing that was a real concern.

Overall: Program is really only as good as the teachers that update it and add the info.

Pros: I like the Parent App for my phone. It organizes all the communication from the school. As a teacher I'm glad not to have to do paper portfolios any more. LifeCubby has a lot of features for documenting the specifics of the day. like sleep position for nap time, how much each child ate of every item in a meal, and details for diaper changes. They worked with us on getting the meal forms updated to work for CACFP, and that's a huge time-saver from having to manually log all the meal counts and how much each child ate. It also works with talk-to-text, which is great when you're trying to do anecdotal notes. Even with background noise in the classroom, the talk-to-text usually works really well. Also you can copy an observation so that's good for doing individual children without having to re-write everything. It has a way to send students in the app to another classroom, and that's good for when they do transition visits. We can also combine classrooms in the app at the end of the day. The customer service from LifeCubby has been pretty good. We've gotten webinar training that was helpful. They also answer emails pretty quickly.

Cons: Not all the parents notice everything we post on their child's daily sheet like a please-bring-in or that there's an incident report for them to sign in the office. Back when daily sheets were on paper, parents would throw them away. Now that the daily sheets are digital, the parents skim them without noticing everything that's posted. From the parent's perspective, the web login is pretty outdated. I don't think they've updated it since I've started using it. There aren't notifications on everything only some things. Not all the teachers use it the same. Some teachers post a lot of detail others don't. That might be frustrating for parents with 2 kids at the center some teachers post photos with no description. Also I wish we could score the assessments in the app, but I guess that's coming out later this year. Right now all you can do with assessments is connect evidence. You have to do your scoring on the web. I also wish the meals were connected to the menu. They update the app a lot, but our tablets don't auto-update so that's a hassle.

Overall: Communicating with families of our center in an efficient and timely manner.

Pros: I love the ability to back date reports and tracker events. One of my favorite go to tools are the vine assessments. It helps to center activities around the children's age and let the parents know future goals.

Cons: I don't like it when the program doesn't allow me to correct an error. This has happened on a few occasions like when posting a note to a parent. The other issue I dislike is that other teachers are able to poke around in others classroom with great ease. A little more privacy would be appreciated.

Pros: The teachers don't have to use paper anymore for daily sheets, portfolios or attendance. Parents like that we're a techy center. I can use the Director's Dashboard from my computer in the office to see how many students and teachers are checked-in throughout my building which is really helpful since we have a large center. I also get an email notifying me if there's a message. The eBlast system is also really useful, it has all the exposure notices built-in for letting the parents know whenever there's a diagnosed case of something in the building. Now that LifeCubby has the Tuition Tracking, it's nice that I don't have to manage our roster in 2 different softwares. I was very happy to stop using Procare it's such an outdated system. We also use Frog Street curriculum, and the Lesson Plans are built-in for us so that's a huge time-saver on the teachers they don't have to type them in. They can make changes to the Lesson Plans, though, so that's also good since we customize the Lesson Plans. We also use the Vine Assessments, which are from LifeCubby, although some of the teachers actually prefer the booklets, so it's nice that they have the booklets also. Even with all that, the best part of LifeCubby is still the photos. That's what the parents really like, and it helps them see that their child is learning. I always talk about LifeCubby whenever a tour a new family at our center, and it seems to help with their enrollment decision. Plus, we keep a monitor in our lobby with Photoroll going all day long it shows the most recent pictures from the classrooms. The parents really like that.

Cons: The reports need work. I wish LifeCubby had more reports, and some of the ones that they have really need improvement. The reports don't all work the same, and it seems that some of the reports follow different style guides. They keep coming out with more reports, so I'm hoping that some of the ones that I use to get from Procare are out soon. Also there needs to be a way to generate balance-due automatic emails to just the families who are behind but they don't have that yet. Also, not all the functions of the Classroom App are available on the web, so that makes it hard when you need to edit something and you have to get out a tablet to do it. I wish parents could do a finger-signature on the tablet like to sign an Incident Report. The user interface on the web and the user interface on the apps are completely different. The icons are different, even the colors are different. It would be good if they updated the web to match the apps.

Pros: Life Cubby allows me to be in touch with the parents of the children in my class on a daily basis. It records all activities during the day and keeps the parents informed. From clocking the children in in the morning to recording meals, naptimes and any other information that is relevant. It allows the parents to message back to us anything that they would like us to know as well as me being able to message the parents, including pictures of their children or even to inform them that they are short on diapers or spare clothes, etc. Life Cubby is easy to use and to navigate around the system. Nothing but great things from the parents too!

Overall: Keeping the parents of the children in my class informed of how their day is going.... that's priceless! Once you get used to it, Life Cubby is new and innovative. It was frustrating in the beginning trying to figure out all the great information that can be shared. Once I figured it out, I got more confident and it has become an invaluable tool for my profession.

Thank you Amber for your review of LifeCubby. You can print out the observations from the website. There is a PDF button in the upper right hand corner of the observation. As for goals and objectives, there is a section called "Custom Tags". This allows the LifeCubby user to customize LC to fit their program needs. Many schools use Custom Tags for QRIS standards, Accreditation standards, state standards, or to match a curriculum they are using. If you have any questions, please contact the office and we would be happy to walk your administrator on how to set custom tags for your program. 614-423-7815 or contact@lifecubby.me

Pros: It's easy to navigate. I don't really spend a lot of time using the software because the information uploaded isn't specific to my son so I don't see a reason to keep checking for updates if no updates are ever uploaded.

Cons: There is no personal information uploaded about my son. The only thing posted is general stuff that they do in the classroom everyday so its kind of pointless to even have a life cubby. I get more information off of the daily progress sheets he comes home with everyday on what he's doing in class specifically.

Pros: Very useful and has some nice features for communicating with my child's daycare. They often use it to share photos throughout the day which is great. The emails contain links directly to the photos with descriptions. Nice!

Cons: It is definitely hard to navigate. My son has been at two different daycares which both used LifeCubby. In both instances, using LifeCubby has been frustrating to use. A number of times I've gotten alerts for things that direct me to LifeCubby where it will take me many attempts to figure out exactly where to find what the notification is for. These can be extremely anxious moments since any ambiguous "alert" makes you wonder if something serious has happened and you're rushing to find out what it is!

Overall: It's a useful tool for communicating with my child's daycare. However, it needs some improvements in the end-user navigation interface. It can be confusing and unintuitive sometimes.

Pros: I love that I can quickly and easily see updates and photos from my child's day at daycare. Makes me feel great to know exactly what's going on.

Pros: It's veey easy and fast. I like it because they have it so easy right in front of your face you can use it with just one hand when you have a baby in your hands!

Cons: The only thing I would change would be when you get a picture sent to you it sends you the notification right away but you don't always get the picture right away it sometimes takes a few attempts to look for it.

Pros: Life Cubby allows us insight to our children's days at school and gives us a frame of reference so we can all work as a team to raise our children in a responsible, cohesive, and unified approach.

Cons: I would love to see notifications within the application and a directional as to where to click for updates and news. There are a lot of clicks needed to get where you have to go. Still easy to use and without all the usual fluff of other apps.

Pros: While I like the Pictures and Newsletters and seeing the posting the Daily sheets are the big win for me!!! They are invaluable as a parent of an infant!!! No more messing with daily sheets that get lost or wet or misplaced now they are all in an app and you can look back over time to see patterns if needed!!! What a total win for any new parent!!! Notifications are also a big win so when teachers post that they need something for my daughter I can easily respond and make sure that they have what they need and not have to read it on a daily sheet that in the old days would have been lost!!!

Cons: My only gripe is that the notifications do not take you to the sub menu when clicking on the link and authenticating to the app you still have to then navigate to the appropriate sub menu. Other than that I love the app and really like the speed at which things post to my account.

Pros: It's a great one stop shop for checking in on my daughter during her day at daycare. I personally love the photo sharing ability.

Cons: The app is really slow and often doesn't work/has to refresh to work. The teachers have also complained on their end particularly when it comes to the photo sharing functionality.

Pros: Updates about the child are helpful for the parents. If all the features are used by DEL centre, it would be wonderful.

Cons: Nothing yet. I would prefer more updates by the day early learning center. I also feel that DEL does not use all the features.

Pros: Communication with parents and access to all classroom, school, and student newsletters and plans. There is an option to personalize each students profiles with a picture, medical information, allergies, etc.

Cons: I can't think of any cons except maybe allowing for more pictures to be posted at one time when writing an observation

Overall: This software is easy to use and is organized. It also allows for easy communication between teachers and parents.

Pros: The mobile app allows us to see pictures of our son. It also allows us to communicate with the teacher using comments.

Cons:
Look and feel of the mobile app can be improved. for eg. the text in the picture starts from extreme left which is not so good to the eye.

Some of the features are not very intuitive. for eg. when using the app initially i didnt knew that i had to click on the circle with my son's picture to see all his reports, pictures etc. I guess his might be useful for people with 2 kids as they might see two circles and choose whose reports they want to see.

Pros: Quick updates and easy contact to daycare staff. The email notifications are also very nice. The easy setup and password recovery works well too.

Cons: The organization of all the different things on it are hard to find or navigate. For instance, the pictures feature shows all pictures but not consistently in the 'observations' section. The other sections are either not used by my center or they aren't useful? Also, the way my kid's profile is selected doesn't pop open to anything when touched. There is a purple exclamation point there but it doesn't take me to where that is nor does it clear the notice right away. It would be better if it had quicker navigation to different things and made it more seamless.

Cons: I wish the software had a more updated feel - a lot of the interface seems outdated, whether by color or by menu and navigation. Also, most commonly, I wish the photos and videos that are shared by the school were more easily saved by the end user.
