Improved technology has meant that child care programs now have access to a wide range of apps that can automate sign in / sign outs, emergency drills, care plans, billing, opening/closing/cleaning checklists, provide forums for parent-teacher communication, document learning goals and provide tools for Educators to make learning visible to parents.
This Child Care Professionals chat may be helpful to any program that is unhappy with the app they are currently using to communicate with parents or for sign in / registration; or for any child care professional providing front line service who may want to improve their parent - program communication.
