Teachers use a mobile classroom tablet (iPad, iPhone or other) for a one-way communication system, to digitally share information with parents about their child's day.
Parents automatically receive daily experience summaries, messages and photos/videos.
Logging into the EduKids website, directors can review their dashboard's collective enrollment data, live-view each room’s attendance charts, send emails and documents to parents, and manage the child care finances.
In the classroom, all work takes place on one main screen of the tablet, making this the easiest child care technology tool in the industry.
A child attendance app is available, with photo capture and secure PIN numbers.
Alternately, teachers can manually check in and out the children.
Teachers can insert data, photos, or videos on individual children or on multiple children at a time
Photos and videos can be sent to parents immediately or saved till end of day.
For naps, teachers can either set an automatic nap timer for each child or they can enter nap times after children wake up.
Reminders for diapers, etc., can be sent to parents immediately, so they can stop at the store, if desired, before pick-up time.
Teachers can save photos and notes as “observations” for future parent conferences, rather than send them to parents as a daily experience.
As part of this app, teachers can easily access thousands of activities and ready-to-use lesson plans from our curriculum partner.
Special education therapists can add their own note to a parent on the child’s daily experience.
Teachers can attach documents and forms to parent emails.
Teachers can review how to use all the features by referring to the Help section on the home screen or the small “i” buttons next to each menu item.
Directors’ computers show many facets of the program from only one screen, for example: 15-minute count graphs, total emails sent and archived, total check-in and check-outs for the day, client contact data, classroom configuration, document management, etc.
Registration and enrollment data is automated when directors simply send a link to new parents that they fill in the blanks and email it back to the school.
Directors decide which fields in the daily experience “menu” teachers will be able to fill out. Those are the only fields that will show on the tablet’s screen.
Directors can set up detailed customized options for teachers to choose from, in the Breakfast/Lunch/Snack, Potty, Mood, and AM/PM activities sections.
Directors can attach documents and forms to emails and send to individuals, specific classrooms, or to the whole program.
Using the comprehensive registration data in EduKids, directors can have their billing and invoicing activities integrated into one system.
In lieu of timesheets, directors can give each staff person a unique 4-digit pin to use in signing in and out, providing a digital record of actual hours worked each week.
