Kindertales has allowed me access to my child's day that I never thought possible. the information shared by the software and the timeliness of the updates makes me feel connected to my child and the daycare. The mobile and desktop versions are easy to use and if I have an issue the company is there to support their product.

I'm not great at writing reviews but I felt I had to for the team at Kindertales. This application has changed childcare. Staff love it, parents can't believe how easy it is and management has never been so organized.

Thanks guys!

NOt very happy with functionality. logging out constantly. loosing input data without warning
Online help always delayed because of time zone differences.
Really not happy with billing trying to load billing out of date.
They did not refund my inflicted bank charges
our school is looking out for a new data base!

Pros

data of each client is well displayed and stored
good use of accident reports

Cons

1.Programs logs itself out and then you loose all data and letters and messages- NO WARNING
2. asked many times to have the billing of the school go off on the 17th of every month- NO USE!!! THEY STILL attempt to take the monies even after I told them I only get monies after the 17th. so bank charges of declined purchases are on me. sometimes even 8 times on a time!!!! Ridiculous feedback to change the charge dates. and all of a sudden 3 deductions at once!!! NO MAN!
3. milestones not user friendly
4. cannot use camera - improper camera access
5. parent billing useless in international countries- not valid
6. small schools do not get incentive for payback☺
