Pros: That I can see all in info from my lap top and that if a parent is singing out I can access info for another parent that it adds up hours used so I don't have to do it how fast it takes to sign in 75 students and that I can send messages to parents . The parent love the notice that there child is in and or signed out of kids club.Its just so easy and if I have Problems the support is fast and formable

Cons: I wish they had a billing system that charge prepaid to parents .This is how we have operated our program. Other than that I can't really think of anything I would do different

Overall: Less time adding up Hours

Love this software! Easy to use

Pros: This program is so easy to use. Parents and administrators love the quick and easy sign-out process. No more paper sign-outs and manually adding up the hours. Hooray!

Cons: We would appreciate additional reporting features. Kinderlime has been very responsive to our requests and we anticipate a solution soon.

Pros: Teachers love the features it offers to communicate with parents!! When a new parent starts we try to send a picture to the parent of that child engaged in an activity. Great communication tool when parent picks up and knows something their child did in the room!!The ability to keep a more accurate account of the children has helped with ratios.

Cons: We have numerous families that have more then 2 children. I wish there was a button to push for "ALL" children!!! It would simplify matters in the am and pm when some times lines begin to form to sign children in or out.
There is no way to track immunizations! Wish there was !!

Overall: just the timing in and out part. I was not privy at the time of purchase... what other things could be added on????

Pros: Love no paper sign in. Enjoy the ease of use and capabilities to add and change things as needed. My parents absolutely love the ease of use and when I am able to do daily sheets that get sent directly to them.

Cons: I had a hard time at first with the many different downloads. Once I remembered that I needed to login to the web page to do admin stuff and not in the app all went smooth.

This program has made it more efficient to log children in and out.

Pros: Billing is more precise for the parents to see exactly the amount of time that their children were in attendance.

Cons: Learning the program was extremely difficult, however, that is because I didn't take the time to watch all of the videos.

Pros: The ease of use and the organization of this software has totally changed our business practices and model. We are running a more efficient daycare, focusing more on the kids and not the business side of things. Our teachers are now able to eliminate the task of filling out meal sheets and incident reports and having to keep up with paper trails. The Sign In/Out feature along with the Parent App has given our parents something to talk about to their friends and family. Parents love being able to electronically sign their children in and out of our facility. They also love having their invoices go directly to their mobile device for billing and payment history. Our local CCS and CPS offices are amazed at what this program has done for us and are now directing parents in need of childcare services to our facility. We've seen our business increase each month since we've implemented this software. The invoicing feature has eliminated hours of work with the simple click of a button. Employee Time Sheets are already calculated and ready for payroll. Child enrollment is a breeze for those parents who are on the go and are dropping in their children for the first time. Most of them have switched from Drop In Status to Full Time Enrollment. The newsletter feature is just fantastic for sending out quick notices or monthly notices about what's happening at our daycare. Parents who were less involved in our activities have now shown a great interest in participation.

Cons: Not every business is ran the same way and has its different needs. Having stated that, I feel that an improvement on the communication end of the software between parent and administration could use some improvement. The parents are able to send notices via the application but on the dashboard there is no way to communicate back with the parent or even between administration. There are no notices that alert administration that a parent has reached out to them on the dashboard. Also, there are no employee accruals(ie. sick, vacation) and uses included with the time clock feature. This would really keep everything in one place when it comes to employee management. There is also no place for teacher information and document uploading to have for our files. This would be a great way to go paperless without having to file. While these may seem like more of a preferred review it is something that I like least about this software because it does not have these things. Being able to just use this software would allow our facility to open up one window and manage our daycare would take care of all our needs.

Overall: Overall this software has changed our entire dynamic of the business. Our enrollment has increased 25% and counting with less than 6 months of signing up. Parents are just amazed at what the software can do and are now telling their friends about our daycare. Our administration can easily manage client and employee information which allows more focus on the kids and less time running the business. This software has definitely been a game changer for our facility and we look forward to our continued partnership with Kinderlime.

Kinderlime has made my check in/check out process more efficient. The parents love it. I love it.

Pros: I like the availability of all the reports including the meal reports. I like the check in/check out functions and the ability to use your phone for check in/out. It has made billing easier for me as I was still did hand counts prior.

Cons: I wish the billing could be more easily printable instead of having to PDF each one and then print individually,

It's good.

Pros: I like that I can pull up parent signatures, and it can bulk bill. Make's things so much easier to invoice clients, and separate the charges.

Cons: that there's no way to include GST. I've made it so that gst is included in the charge. Also would be awesome if you could multiple charge. Right now you can only assign one charge per client, ideally I want to assign multiple charges to clients.

Overall: Faster processing, and the team has no way of losing documentation as it's saved on the cloud.

My parents and a teachers love the simple yet detailed program!

Pros: The biggest Pro for us is the electronic sign in/out that transfers directly to billing. We also really like that the parents can pay direct online and that it charges them for the convienance and not the facility.

Cons: The only Con, in my opinion, is that there there is no way to choose a billing date of 1st and 15th. It is only Monthly or weekly.

Overall: We were able to reduce the use of paper billing, create a simpler billing process and saverime

Overall the app is excellent. Easier than storing paperwork.

Pros: I can communicate with parents using a mass email or text. Parents are also able to see that they are signing out the correct child because the picture is displayed.

Cons: When our wi-fi didn't work we weren't able to use the app. The issue was fixed with being able to use the app without wi-fi which was great. The info for each student has to be re entered for the new year because the attendance count don't reset after the new year.

The sign in-out feature is simple to use, collects important data and is versatile.

Pros: Kinderlime allows me to use or choose not to use any of it's features. It is very user friendly for both the parents and teaching staff. All of this is offered at the most reasonable cost I could find. Best of all the tech support is awesome.

Cons: The cons that have come up are very few and mostly relate to the function of the internet service and hardware we use.

Overall: The most important feature of this software is the ease of which it assists in complying with state licensing codes for our center.

It has been positive and productive.

Pros: Eliminates need for paper. It allows me to communicate to my families more effectively and sufficiently.

Cons: That is doesn't allow you to create a new daily report sheet from a past day. It only allows you to view and edit one that was already created from a past day.

Overall: effective communication, better billing management, more accurate record keeping

Pros: I love that our parents can easily pay for their child care services online. The ease of tracking hours and check in/out times can't be overstated. This has been a super experience for us. I highly recommend trying Kinderlime!

Cons: I would like to be able to send parents a monthly report of their child's time in the aftercare program, so they can verify for themselves that the billing is accurate.

Overall: Parent's are paying their aftercare bills more regularly.

Kinderlime has been a blessing for family child care program. I love it and so does my parents.

Pros: I love the capability to upload my newsletter and helpful resources to one system then press send. Everything goes to all my families. I am able to post pictures and families can share them immediately to their facebook page. I am able to do my tuition and accept payment with Kinderlime. These program has just about everything I need to communicate with my families and manage my small business. The best thing is the price!

Cons: The only con is that for billing it uses Stripe however I use Paypal. Paypal doesn't charge me a fee to invoice my parents but Stripe does. So instead of using Kinderlime Stripe process, I use Kinderlime to track payments and send invoices then I have parents make payments through Paypal.

Overall: Easy to use software that helps me manage my business fast and efficiently. Kinderlime makes my small business look better than other home daycares in my area.

Prior to Dec-16 we were completely paper-based. With 150 students it was not manageable.

Pros: Although we have a difficult fee structure, it is still far more accountable to download the data, add our fee structure and then import the charges. I love the online access for statements and invoices. This puts the power in the parent's hands to access the data they need when they need it.

Cons: 1.) I really don't like the inability to upload non-electronic payments.
2.) The reporting needs a bit of fine-tuning to be able to pull data based on various ID types (family, student, KL).
3.) We'd like to be able to apply discounts for multi-child families with the billing feature.

Overall: We went from completely paper-based to electronic in less than a week with a student body of 160. In prior years, the manual calculations and billing were not tracked electronically which lead to difficulty with so much, including providing annual childcare fees and payments for HSA reimbursements. Having this information at the parents' fingertips has saved so much time for our school. As a non-profit, our "employees" are not paid. Typically these wonderful volunteers are busy moms that provide this service.

Pros: I like the billing options. I inherited a paper system of writing down when children entered and left the childcare. I had to add up hours and generate bills. I love the digital sign in and invoicing system.

Cons: I can't figure out an easy way to print invoices, but that's probably my fault. I didn't take the online training, I just pushed buttons until I mostly figured out the system. Every time I call with a question I get immediate help.

Overall: It saves me a tremendous amount of time.

Pros: Highly intuitive and easy to train the new staff.

Overall: It was a huge hassle before Kinderlime (multiple student spreadsheets, paper sign-in/outs, timesheets, staff contact details, parent contact details, separate newsletter software, invoices, whatsup distribution lists). Now it's all under one umbrella, phew. It took a little while to get here as with anything new. Best part of Kinderlime is Customer Service. They truly know what it means. We are looking forward to future enhancements and would gladly recommend it to anyone/everyone.

Recommendations to other buyers: When you start using it there will be kinks but just remember to logout and log back in on the tablet to get the latest changes.

Kinderlime has helped to automate our sign in and out process. Thank you!

Comments: Kinderlime is easy to use and update. The team is open to comments that can better service client needs. They are proactive in anticipating needs. This program has taken hours off our reporting work each month.

I can't imagine how we could have survived thru the years when we didn't have the Kinderlime.

Comments: I started using Kinderlime app since April 2015. I absolutely love it. My preschool parents like it a lot. The app is very easy to use. It makes it easier for the teachers to post messages to the parents, send newsletters, pictures and especially the email notification when the child gets dropped off and picked up.

The four-digit passcode assigned to each child makes it easier for the parents to sign in and out. I like the administrator edit option. When the parents forget to sign in or sign out, the administrators can easily edit and able to sign in or sign out the child. I installed the kinderlime app in my phone. I like the live sign in status. It helps me monitor the classroom ratio when I am away for a meeting, or out of the classroom. One touch I get all the details.

When I create any newsletters there is no auto spell /grammar check. I like to see more tools, features under create newsletter.

If I have any Internet problems then it becomes a problem to use the app.

I love Kinderlime

Comments: I am rarely asked to use it to sign my boys out of latchkey. I do like seeing pics of the kids during their school day. I was getting emails when my husband would pick them up on time but no longer get those. It was nice because it saved me from having to call him at 3pm every day asking if he was getting the boys. I would just the message

Comments: We have been using it as a sign in/sign out tool and as a parent communication tool. Has been great and very easy to use for our moderately un-tech savvy employees and parents.

Our hope for the future is that it will have functionality of maintaining a "roster" -- being able to identify which children are supposed to be present on which day, rather than having all children in the roll call for each day. It would be easier to gauge attendance and drop-ins that way.

Kinderlime is very practical and very efficient! I am completely pleased with the program!

Comments: Pros: Parents receive emails on sign-in and out time. The system is very easy to use. It is wonderful for day to day billing and tracking students attendance.
Cons: Very few times the system was not working properly and we had to sign all of our students in by hand (this has happened maybe 3 times for this entire academic year... so really, not so bad). However, I will say the Kinderlime staff did have it resolved quickly. So even though it was inconvenient at the time, they did make every effort to fix the problem right away.

I am so grateful for this program, it has made my life so much better.

Comments: We've explored kinderlime for quite some time and it is a very 21st century way of organizing your after school. There are a lost of flexible options to fit the style of each program and a mobile app to use anywhere. Billing seems easy and practical and the reports are thorough and super helpful. It's a very nice service

Comments: As a center which requires daily sign In and Out documenting, we have found Kinderlime to be an excellent product. Along with the actual verification of the adult dropping off or picking up a child, it allows teachers to see at a glance who is present, absent or not signed in. One challenge is the internet accessibility. The loading was taking a long time and sometimes not happening. We solved this by purchasing cellular services for the tablet.
One more invaluable feature is being able to see in just minutes, the monthly attendance records of all the children enrolled, including the actual time spent onsite.

The Kinderlime system is a quick and easy way to manage ratios and keep up with my monthly tuition

Comments: Our parents LOVE signing in/out with Kinderlime. Each person with permission to pick-up has their own PIN number. Parents are notified by email when their child is dropped off or picked-up, and working parents (especially) appreciate this feature.

As preschool director, being able to see at a glance how many students are present in a classroom and in the facility at large is helpful during fire/disaster drills etc... I also like being able to see quickly whether someone has permission to pick-up...even out at car-line.

Our state funded PreK-4 class requires daily parent signatures for monthly reporting. My only "complaint" is that I have to print off 3 pages for each child (with parent signatures) showing attendance for the month. If the PDF format could be condensed to one or two pages per child for the month (again showing parent signatures), that would be AWESOME!

We have not had many parents opt for making on-line payments through Kinderlime, but will probably continue to use the service anyway just for the great sign-in/out features.

Great Product!

Comments: The software is very user-friendly; easy to navigate through. Our parents love being able to use an ipad. Having a pin code makes the process of signing in much easier than having to flip through a binder full of pages (especially when they are running late for work in the morning). Over all, we are very happy with Kinderlime!

It is convenient, and comprehensive. We just love it.

Comments: This is one of the best Sign In/Out programs for our extended care program. I like how each parent/pick-up is assigned a pin number, and it's great to see the comparison info on attendance numbers from past years as well. I really like how each child has a section to enter all their info in, I also like how you can attach siblings to the "carers" that you already entered for one sibling. The customer service is always amazing! Every time I have a question about something the Kinderlime staff are always quick to help. They figure out the problem or they walk me through "how to" do or find something. Their follow-up is speedy as well. :+)

One thing that I would like to see in the future is the "carers relation" I would like a few more options "authorized or family, or something close" (something more than just doctor, parent, or guardian). Some of the carers are not any of those 3. Also, and maybe it's because I haven't figured it out yet, but on the app (on our iPad) the staff can't see the child's allergy notes. I would love for their to be a section/tab where we can see a list of all children who I've entered allergies for. This would be helpful for snack times, since not all children attend our program daily.

I think the program is great though; it works for what we need it for; keeping track of attendance, numbers attending the program each day/month, and a great tool for billing parents as well.

Use it for an afterschool program. Easy to use and the easy to explain to parent.

Comments: After looking for a number of years and trying out many demos, we happened upon Kinderlime. We were looking for an affordable and easy to use interface for parents to check students in and out of our after school program. Most systems were too complicated and expensive, and not well suited to our needs. The staff at Kinderlime helped us make it work, and we love it! We really miss it when the Internet goes down and we have to use paper (thankfully a rare occurrence). We're working on a cellular backup so we can always use it. Tech support has always been amazing, and helped us through any issues we had quickly and successfully. We also appreciate that it is continually improving based on user feedback (sometimes ours). We look forward to seeing what features are added in the future! Overall, I do believe it is the best product on the market for the price and features offered, and an indispensable tool for after school programs and childcare centers.

Comments: Kinderlime has been a huge blessing to our school! As the Chief Operations Officer of Neighborhood Christian Schools, currently with our two early childhood education campuses, I have witnessed over the last few years how Kinderlime and their friendly staff have helped facilitate the effectiveness and efficiency of our operations and communications among our families and employees. With Kinderlime's features such as photo sharing with our families, Newletter and electronic signing in and out capabilities, Kinderlime has proven to be an effective tool to facilitate communication and to document and track data which is important in any business and useful for improving client experiences overall. I highly recommend Kinderlime for any school.

Comments: Kinderlime helps us keep attendance records simple, neat and always at hand. The user interface is very easy to work with both online and via iPod. They also help us share special moments throughout the day with parents via photo sharing. This is such a great connection for parents to see their child in action during school. Technical issues are rare, are dealt with expeditiously and accurately.
