HiMama Customer testimonial

As a Childcare Center Director, Champagne was overwhelmed, often working until 11:00 pm responding to parents and managing her staff. She felt like everything was on her shoulders.

HiMama helped Champagne regain her work-life balance. She went from feeling like she had to do it all alone, to having the support she needed to delight her parents and staff.

HiMama has helped me with my work-life balance, and I am so relieved to no longer have to micromanage all the communication.”

Why partner with us?

HiMama is based on extensive research and interviews with early childhood educators. We have learned a lot about early childhood education since we originally came together in 2012. 

However, the following learnings are what motivate and inspire us to be better and do better:

  1. The formative years from age 0 to 5 are critical to a child’s life-long development and most people are unaware of this well-researched fact.
  2. The resources invested in early childhood education do not align with the importance of a child’s development.
  3. The role of the early childhood educator is highly under-appreciated and extremely challenging.

Our goal is to empower early childhood educators with affordable tools that enable them to improve developmental outcomes for the children they work with while educating parents about the importance of their work.

What makes HiMama’s childcare software different?

Smooth parent communication – HiMama makes it easy to communicate with parents via app, text, or email to share reports, videos, photos, and more! Delight and engage parents to bridge the gap between learning in the classroom and learning at home.

Contactless check-in: Parents can check-in their children securely using their mobile devices. No paper and pen required! 

Comprehensive classroom management: The entire classroom at your educators’ fingertips. Record observations on tablets or smartphones and share pictures and reports with parents in real-time. 

Easy-to-use daily reporting: Goodbye paper daily reports! HiMama saves you on average five hours a week. Use our digital daily sheets for meals, naps, activities, and more. Send the daily reports automatically by the end of the day or manually whenever you need them.

Effortless observations: Attach photos or videos with classroom observations to show children’s development in action. Save time by making notes about all children at once, multiple at a time, or child by child, if you need to.
