I am absolutely in love with it!

I run an at home daycare. That means that I hold every position, I am the cook, administrator, teacher, and janitor. (...) The biggest thing is this program was easy to learn, saves me time, and allows me extra time to be with the kiddos instead of doing paperwork.

Best technology move ever!

(...) It meets our Quality Assurance measures, makes families happier (as they can see their child busy with happy faces) and allows me as Supervisor to see at a glance who is in, what reports are done, and keep track of the families using it and checking in! By far, the easiest and best piece of technology we have invested in!!
