Pros: Mykidzday App is a fabulous tool of communication, photos of day to send & alignment of Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards to each activity. AMAZING! Our staff and families love the virtual tool. This is just a small token of knowledge of how the day of a child is spent at our child care center. It can be looked at anytime based on the parent/guardian time frame.

Cons: At this time I can not think of anything. As you deal with technology there may be times when you may need to refresh the tablet since the data did not load. This has nothing to do with the software.

Overall: Customers LOVE it. A great marketing tool for our program that helps us stand out from the rest of the childcare businesses in the area. I am grateful for the extraordinary customer service.

Pros: It is very convenient and easy to understand. Keeping track of what my kids did and ate that day helps me predict how their evening at home will be.

Cons: I wish there was a feature that was available for me to leave a note for the teacher telling them about my kids that morning or the night before. Sometimes a bad night leads to a sleepy day and with my early morning/late evening work hours, it's hard for me to get in touch with the teacher.

Thank you for your feedback Ashley. You can use the "Message Staff" tab on myKidzDay Parent app to leave a note for the teacher. Hope you enjoy using myKIdzDay :-)

Pros: Ease of use. It was very easy to learn for our teachers, families and Admin.

Pros: That the parents can see information at their fingertips & sending pics! No wasting paper that seems to get lost!

Cons: It seems to run slow at times which is very frustrating when time is of essence when working with young children. There seems to be issues with Android phones. Sometimes the parents will come in and tell us that the app is not working with their phone and it's always an Android phone.

Pros: It records children's information to let parents know about child's day

Cons: It was very slow. The graphics were very old school. When parents messaged it went to director instead of teacher who is the one the info is directed at. Many menus to work through having to switch lists was cumbersome.

Overall: We found a different app that better suited our needs. Eventhough it cost a little more it was worth the additional features and ease of use.

Pros: The communication with parents! Our families love the app and the way they can communicate with us throughout the day!

Pros: Relatively easy to use; easy accessibility via a smartphone app (rather than a desktop application); allows us to cut down on the usage of paper but workload remains more or less the same (in fact, one can argue we have more work to do as we now have the ability to report on more things about the kids which we otherwise would not have done on paper).

Cons: App could do with less colours (looks like an app my kids play rather than one for serious work); change the position of some buttons to make the app easier to use with one hand.

Overall: Main benefit is to allow us to keep the parents of the kids updated on their progress everyday in the center. Using an app cuts down on the amount of paper used.

Great app!

Pros: Ability to stay in tune with my child when I can't be there

Cons: Sometimes the time was wrong. So it would say she was dropped off at 9am but really it was 7am. Not a huge deal just confusing for coparenting.

Overall: Great app

I like that I can keep track of my daughter's day while I'm at work.

Pros: As a breastfeeding mom, I can plan my pumping schedule at work around when my daughter eats by looking at the app. I can also also know if I need to bring diapers or clothes to daycare, even if I'm not the parent who picks my daughter up from daycare.

Cons: The app can be slow or glitchy at times. I often use the "my kids" button on the bottom of the screen rather than the main screen as the main screen button doesn't always take me to the next page or do so in a timely manner.

Comments: Since I have started using My kids day. I saved a ton of time and lots of money in paper and ink. My parents love the ease and functionality of it. No more lost papers. I attached my monthly calendars and all other correspondence in the daily messages. The new sign in sign out tool is a winner. The parents feel like there in a very tech savey facility. I can't wait to see what other features are coming.

Pros: Lots of features. It's made for more than just parents. This could be a good product if everyone was on board.

Cons: There is so many ways to communicate and apps that we download on our phones. Venmo, Paypal, Robinhood, Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, text messages, groupme, slack... The problem with so many of these things is that everyone has some and not others. This type of product would be awesome if everyone used it, but that is not the case. You may love it, but does your child's teacher use it? Does their babysitter? Chances are no because teachers already have a million requests for other ways to communicate, why would they add another for just a student or two?

Overall: I think it is a fine idea as many of these things are. However, unless everyone is connected it is not worth it.
