Highly recommend Child Paths for Early childhood Centres

Reviewed on 2020/05/23

Our experience has been very positive with Child Paths. The team are excellent and always available to help with any issues. They are welcoming of suggestions and can add personalised features that may only apply to your service. They are a progressive Company eager to improve all the time. We have found that Child Paths is a great communication tool but yet it does not replace or compromise our relationships with parents, but enhances them.

Pros

We have been using the Child Paths App in our Creche since 2018. Our staff have become very familiar with the system and it is saving lots of time over tedious paperwork. The parents are all very positive about it and love receiving updates during the day. Like everything, it took us a couple of weeks to get familiar with it. We would highly recommend this to Early Years centres.

Cons

Integration in to our service took a little time and patience. Once we got everyone up and running and ironed out the initial challenges, things fell in to place. Our staff find the app very easy to use and enjoy all the features that can be accessed. The facility to speak in to the tablet and let it then comes up in text is not used so much as with different accents and voices, it does not pick up so well what we are trying to say and can write something different. Many of the staff find it easier to type their observations.

Enhanced Communication with Parents

The use of Child Paths compliments our efforts to operate a more environmental friendly business. We highly recommend Child Paths and while we were apprehensive, at first, about introducing the technology to our staff and parents, we would not go back.

Pros

We are a community creche and have been using Child Paths for almost two years. We have used Child Paths to enhance our communication with parents and we now have more effective and efficient two-way communication with our parents. We use Child Paths to record daily activities, observations, milestones and attendance, all of which is shared with parents. We also benefit, as staff find this a much quicker and easier method of record keeping, freeing up more time to interact with the children. The Child Paths team provide great support and welcome all feedback from us as a provider.

Cons

As we operate in a rural setting, access to adequate broadband was originally an issue but that was resolved prior to implementing Child Paths.

Goodbye paperwork!

Reviewed on 2020/05/21

Pros

The Child Paths application has had a significant impact on our service. Our reliance on paper documentation, e.g. attendance sheets, daily records, sleep charts, food records and child observation records, has decreased dramatically. We no longer need to store large quantities of documents, now we store this information electronically.
We have an obligation to work in partnership with parents/guardians, to ensure the best possible outcomes, and we do this through sharing information. In my opinion, there is no better way to do this than through the Child Paths app.

Cons

This software programme was more basic when we first started to us it. However, it subsequently continued to expand & meet our ever changing needs.

Love this software! We began working with Child Paths in May 2018 and have the app in place in our six centres. It’s a great tool and takes a lot of pain out of the day-to-day paperwork. I love looking at my own child’s photos and updates too. Well worth it and well thought out product. Highly recommend it and the team are a pleasure to deal with too.

Pros

Easy to use, information at-hand for inspections from governing bodies, parents love the photos and daily updates.

I find it very handy from a parent's perspective also as I work away once a week, so i can keep up to date with his day while I travel.

Cons

Would love if it was an app but the browser feature is very easy to use too
