(PRWEB) September 14, 2016
KidReports LLC, an industry leader in digital classroom management and parent engagement tools, has partnered with Childcare Network, a leading provider of early care and preschool education, to launch a fully customized parent engagement application which will connect teachers, children and parents like never before.
“The ability to provide digital communication options to parents not only helps facilitate a closer bond between families, but also provides a set of digital tools for teachers and center directors,” said Greg Krupa, co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of KidReports. “KidReports is pleased to be able to partner with Childcare Network on creating this platform and implementing it across its entire network of centers. The centers and parents are already seeing the benefit.”
The system allows parents at Childcare Network schools to receive daily updates on their children’s activities, either with an emailed daily summary or via real time alerts using the branded native iOS/Android applications. The platform is completely cost-free for parents and gives them greater insights into what their little ones are doing all day. It also provides a variety of tools for teachers to better manage their day, and for directors to have a holistic view of all aspects of their center.
“Digital communication tools like KidReports are the future of parent engagement in our industry. As we considered our options, we immediately recognized the value provided by KidReports and their platform,” said Scott Cotter, President and CEO of Childcare Network, “Since launching the pilot, the feedback from our parents, teachers, and administrators has been overwhelmingly positive.”
Since 2011, KidReports has been an innovator in parent engagement and paperless classroom management for early childhood educators and child care providers. Based in Denver, CO, and with offices in Colorado Springs, CO, KidReports serves clients nationally as well as internationally with their multi-device, cloud-based reporting and communications platform.
