I love how easy this app is to use. At a touch of a button I can find out when and what my 2 year old ate, how long he napped, when he had his diaper changed, and photos of his activity throughout the day! I also like that I can see these updates in real-time. Our previous daycare used a different app that wouldn’t allow us to see his daily updates until his teacher signed him out at the end of the day.

Pros

Ease of use, real-time updates/entries, clear photos, and way communication with teachers

Cons

I don’t have a con for this app. It provides us with everything we need.

I was looking for a software after the fees on ProCare shot thru the roof. HiMama is going to be roughly what ProCare went up to but I did not have the initial "buying" the program cost & I got so many more options for the cost with HiMama over ProCare

Pros

We got all the options included with the monthly fee. This cloud based program is fairly easy to use. I like that the parent gets an invoice so they know their bill amount ahead of time. It has alot of pluses that we have not even started using yet.

Cons

The salesman kinda was pushy & there was some things that I didn't realize until after I had signed up. U pay by the class so we only have 3 price points so we paid for 3 classes. I made it work to save $ monthly. I like having daily ledgers by the whole center, not having to open each child to see the ledger. This is my 3rd daycare software program & they each had their own pros & cons.

It started out a little odd but once we got it up and running we were happy until we started seeing all the weird quirks. You can’t put in a student our parents address we put them in notes which was odd, the billing aspect is awful you can’t connect families, it started out a little odd but once we got it up and running we were happy until we started seeing all the weird quirks. You can’t put in a student our parents address we put them in notes which was odd, the billing aspect is awful you can’t connect families, no immunization record keeping. It’s fit for businesses that do not have to keep specific record keeping for tax purposes .

Pros

Looks great, easy for parents to use, checking in and out is easy. Easy to create tuition plans.

Cons

All the behind the scenes billing is awful. Nothing makes sense for bookkeeping purposes.

HiMama is a must have for any day care and child care center

Reviewed on 2021/11/08

Happy with HiMama - recommend them highly

Happy with HiMama - recommend them highly

Pros

Software is a must have for any business running child care centers
Provides much needed features
- alerts and notifications to parents
- video feed for communication of child with parents and relatives
- attendance tracking
- billing and payments

Saves paperwork, time and give a much needed brand lift (selling story) to parents and gives them comfort remotely monitoring their child

Cons

Quality software comes at a price - and this product is not cheap as there aren't many good competitors

Might be difficult for small child care centers in developing countries with small budgets to be able to afford. Differentiated pricing (country to country) and more support for regional variations e.g. language support would be appreciated
