Fairly new here. I just got an ipad for my family daycare program and am looking for ideas on how I can use it in my program.
I have been researching attendance / info apps so any that you use and like I would love to hear about!
I also want to find a good app for the financial side of things-
And last I would love to know if any of you use the pre-school apps out there in your program... I got a very durable case and would love to let the kids try some quality apps for learning!
Thanks everyone!

If you use Handwriting Without Tears curriculum, I reccomend their app.

Also, Starfall apps

Mods: This sounds like a commercial, but it really isn't. I'm not getting anything out of this. But if you need to delete it, I understand.

Just a bit off topic, but I bought an iballz set for my tablet. I don't use an ipad, but the iballz are designed for ipads and ipad minis. The first set didn't work on my Nexus as promised, so I asked for my money back. He said they had been re-designed to work better on other tablets and offered me a free set to test. The first set kept falling off. The new set has been wonderful for my day care 2 1/2 year old. I don't worry about it for a minute. I highly recommend them if kids use your tablet. They are little ping pong type balls on a cord that fit on the corner of the tablet. If the tablet is dropped, it lands on a ball instead of flat on the floor.

This sounds like a commercial, but it isn't. I have just been so impressed with the customer service and the product. Anyway, I have a code for 15% off. If anyone wants it, PM me and I'll get back to you at the end of the day when I have some free time. I think the Iballz were $24.99, but they seem to run sales a lot.

According to their website, this is something used by a lot of schools, and I can certainly see why.

Is this educational?

I wi say that every where on the forum I see people loving the minute menu software... Unfortunately it isn't web based so I can't use it on the ipad... I did debate on using a thinner portable laptop instead but I would lose the battery life, a lot of apps I already love and the ease of touch screen for parent check in/out and also the touch screen apps for kids working on thier writting skills...
Not to mention dd would be heart broken! Lol

Endless Alphabet is an awesome app for little ones. They learn letter recognition, vocabulary, definitions, letter sounds, not to mention turn-taking and fine motor skills. And it's fun! It's the only app I've found so far that I let them play.
