AmyKidsCo Before I started the Daily Connect sign in I put a screening on the door with a statement "Dropping off your child indicates that you have read this checklist and affirm that your child does not meet any of the criteria the require exclusion from care."

I have a paper copy with the statement and room for parents to initial and date if they forget their phone.

If they sign in with QR code it's super quick!

I do. It is constant, instant, contact.

I just click what we are doing along with our schedule during the day - Centers - Art - Music - Mealtime/Menu - Outside - Movie - Book/Storytime, etc.

I snap photos several times a day and send them with one click to all or individually. It archives them all and allows me to chose what to add to their portfolios which can be viewed as videos, later. I also add messages, documents, recipes, menus, parent resource sheets and our full curriculum for each day. I get copies of them everyday, too, which helps me plan next years curriculum, in advance. I keep them in one email folder for quick reference.

It also has behavior, health, supply need and pretty much anything I will ever need to say to anyone. I can link my full contract so with one click I can re-send it anytime there is a question. They can access it at will, too.

I did not learn it all in one day. I continue to customize it to my program. It can be as simple or as complex as you want it. Same price.

tenderhearts ok, do they use email then to sign in and out and answer questions? I just don't think each of my parents has an email address

Email. It sends them a link to download the APP directly to your account, then it emails a summary each day.

They pop up across the top of their page automatically if you choose that option. It gives three options. They can't complete sign in without answering if you click "required".

1. Ask questions at each sign-in everyday

2. Parents of multiple children have to answer separately for each child

3. Only one answer is needed for parents of multiple children

These can be health questions or survey questions. Any type of question, really, it is full customizable.

tenderhearts So when you set up the email isn't necessarily used? I just didn't see where phone numbers were put in, all my parents use phone not emails lol

I felt the same way but was whizzing away with it in less than an hour. The parents love it.

Not mine. It is state law. Mine also have to physically sign-in on paper because I am required to keep it on file for two years. It benefits them too, having accurate attendance records should they ever need them for court, they already have access to their own archives instead of needing your involvement.

You also need it for your time/space write-offs.

Standby. I am taking a photo of my screen. I will have to resize to upload, here.

tenderhearts Never mind I found it lol.
11-12-2020 08:23 AM
tenderhearts But this is an app where you can have them answer covid questions (well any questions) before they come to care? like if they were filling out paperwork on the porch? I just need people to read these questions and so I feel like having an app where they need to answer the questions and submit before entering would be best. I just didn't see it on the site

Cat Herder I wanted to update.

I just got my new invoice and it went up to $1.40 per child.

Still a great price when you only keep 6.

This is straight from their site. It is only $1.25 per child, per month. It does everything to include portfolios and assessments.


"Reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission with contactless sign-in and health screening procedures. A fully customizable health questionnaire can be set up each day for parents to sign-in their child. Answers are automatically shared with staff, and archived for easy access and for regulatory compliance.

Daily Connect allows the information to be passed from childcare staff to parents digitally instead of on paper handouts to reduce the spread of germs. Digital signature of incident reports and sign-in forms can be collected via the application. A report with the children temperature readings is easily accessible along many more reports." - https://www.dailyconnect.com/

284878 You kind of treat when yourself with jot form woohoo or Google forms. I used jot form and woohoo for different types of forms for my daycare.

Cat Herder I use Daily Connect, too. I love it.

I don't know why I waited so long other than fear of tech. It was really easy to figure out and takes so much record keeping off of me and allows so many ways to communicate with parents.

My husband has to do it for his job. It's an affidavit so there's a paper trail.
