Stay connected with your childcare provider
Many parents rely on childcare to help manage their families and busy lives, but find it hard to stay updated on how their child is doing on a given day. Today’s Denver-based startup is changing the way parents keep track of their child during work or travel real-time updates.
Kid Reports not only helps parents keep track of what is happening with their children on a daily basis, but it helps childcare facilities improve these services with better communication techniques.
Kid Reports is a web-based reporting system where each child has their own personal profile. This profile is updated throughout the day by his or her teacher. It can be updated via the web, smartphone, or tablet. Parents are then updated instantly through email or push notifications.
Learn more about how Kid Reports can help you stay connected with your child from Leif Ullman, CEO & Co-Founder.
What inspired you to start your company?
As parents, we wanted to build a product that we would use if it were on the market already. We are all fathers of small children in child care, and we came together to create a better way for parents to stay connected to their children throughout the day.
Tell us about your product or service.
KidReports is a SaaS that aims to connect parents to their children while they are in child care. KidReports is not just a service for the parents but for the facilities caring for our children as well.
Childcare facilities are always looking for ways to improve their service. In speaking with these facilities, they all said that the number one item parents want is improved communication. We want them to be equipped with all the tools necessary to do their jobs better and more efficiently so they can do what they do best, provide great child care. KidReports allows them to do exactly that.
