HiMama

Child care app for documentation and parent engagement

4.8/5 (8 reviews)

HiMama Overview

HiMama is a fun and easy-to-use app for child care and early learning programs that are tired of the same old paperwork. HiMama provides a quick and simple way to document and share children's activities, everything from funny moments to developmental achievements, to involve parents and improve learning outcomes for children.

The app was designed based on extensive consultations with Early Childhood Educators, Supervisors and Directors of child care and early learning programs. As a result, the app, which is used on tablets by Educators in the classrooms, is both intuitive to use, as well as comprehensive in the features that it offers.

For documentation, the app helps with recording meals, naps, behavior, and activities with the ability to add photos and videos. For parent engagement, the app allows for real-time parent communications, digital daily reports and instant messaging. For reporting, the app provides attendance reports, child portfolios, and development assessments for children's developmental progress.

Pros

I like how we can incorporate state standards with the activities as well as upload photos right away with parents able to comment on them. The program is attractive and clean looking.

The staff are super easy to work with!

Cons

I don't like that teacher have access to seeing all message exchanges from other classrooms. I also don't like that as director, when I send a message to the whole center, the teachers do not see the original sent message.

The lesson plan feature isn't very user friendly either.

My child’s daycare center uses this product to communicate to parents.

Pros

Ability to send pictures to parents. The app also allows teachers to let parents know how their child is doing throughout the day.

Cons

No cons to note. I receive notices from this app throughput the week. I have no problems opening the app and viewing content.
