About Parent

Parent is a cloud-based child care management platform which helps administrators, teachers and parents with data management, course planning and activity tracking. Its key features include reporting, employee management, messaging, health records and documentation.

The Parent application comes with a module which enables administrators to track the number of teachers and students checked in at any time and maintain birth date, registration and health information for enrolled students. Users can upload documents from a mobile device and organize them into folders. With the class management feature, teachers can report on meals, naps, incidents, sick days and vacations. It includes a news feed tool which allows teachers share news, requests and updates with parents.

Parent allows parents to access their child’s daily activity log, future events and reports from a centralized dashboard. A messaging tool helps parents connect with teachers and participate in group discussions. The system includes a shared calendar which lets parents, teachers and staff members keep track of children’s weekly activities and manage event scheduling.

Parent App is having the same importance to our usage for what's app and Facebook and their customer support is amazing interns of quick reply and the guilds they are having inside the app now is making our life easier. As much as our parents are satisfied we will keep always using the solution

Pros

Very user friendly and easy to use, almost same experience while using Facebook when we post pictures and videos. The best part about it is our parents who became more interactive liking the pictures and tagging their children and having more valuable conversation with them in our virtual parental meetings via zoom.
Thanks Parent App for making our daily operations easier.

Cons

Will be great if they enabled the option of online payments directly from the app.

Reasons for Choosing Parent

More user-friendly, covering all of our daily needs from one place & the most important when our parents tried it they highly recommended using it

Reasons for Switching to Parent

Was harder with onboarding, implementation and required specific devises on the other side parent took only 3 days to go live

Response from Parent ApS

Hi Ola! Our sincerest apologies for the late reply.

We can't thank you enough for your kind feedback, and it truly is comments like yours that keep us going and motivate us to aim even higher!

Our product team is looking into the option of integrating an online payment option inside the app, and we really do hope that this is something we can offer soon.

It's our pleasure to have you on board with us, and we look forward to a long and successful partnership together where we can continue to help you cover all your daily operations.

We have saved so much of our budget from not having to print so much and now we can use that budget esle where! The app is definately worth it!

Pros

I absolutely love the inspirations library; it makes it so fast and easy to prepare activities and serves as a database for all our activities that we can easily find and use again. The new survey feature has been helpful during the covid-19 pandemic, as we can create daily health surveys as required by the authorities. The documents module is also a great feature, now we can keep all our documents in one central place that is easily accessible by staff and we can share documents with parents directly.

Cons

It would be a nice to have a feature so the parents are able to upload documents from their portal in to the child's profile. It would save the admin a lot of time.

Response from Parent ApS

Dear Nicky,

We are glad you are enjoying the inspirations and surveys features.
Regarding the parents document uploading we will definitely study your request.
Best regards

Reviewed on 2020/06/26

Pros

Overall, I really like the advantage that it gives any institution to cut out on their paper waste. Moreover, believe it is clear for the user.

Cons

I believe the news section could be improved, adding the option of selecting what news you would like to see. It would also be a good idea to be able to search for content posted on the app. It would also be nice if when reading a document from the documents section and wanting to go back, the app didn't take you to the first folder.

Response from Parent ApS

Hi Laia,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. we are thrilled that your child care center has gone paperless with Parent. We are also very happy to hear that the application is user-friendly which is always one of our top priorities.

We appreciate your feedback regarding the newsfeed and we are working on adding search functionality to make finding posts easier.

An All-In-One APP!

Reviewed on 2021/08/23

Pros

Adapting to an online and digital portal in any domain will always have its hiccups, but honestly our transition and 3+ experience with the parent app has been nothing short of phenomenal due to their customer service team. We have always received around the clock support, exceptional customer service and have felt like our every need or concern was acknowledged or met!

Cons

The far-few and in-between times that the app has been slow, we have honestly had our frustrations. However the customer service team had always emailed us to stay in touch during these times, and tried to supply us with trouble shooting and this is more than what we could have asked for from them!

Response from Parent ApS

Hello Dana, and thank you for your incredible feedback!

We are thrilled to hear that you are enjoying Parent, and that you are getting all the support and help that you need from our dedicated Support Team.

It is our top priority to support you and your institute from A to Z so that you can spend time on what matters - the children.

Thank you for being part of our Parent family.

Best regards, Parent Support Team

Parent childcare app

Reviewed on 2021/06/14

Pros

The software is very easy to use. Very end user friendly too.
Has a lot of features which would give a complete control on the organisation without being physically present.

Cons

The most important "SEARCH" is missing from the app.
The app is also not user friendly for staff to share data among themselves. They have no options to share information, articles etc without enabling the send message option( which also gives parents to send messgae directly).
The latest updates have been really annoying and has led to lot of disappointment from staff and parents .
