In an ideal world, every parent and practitioner would have time to have a chat about their children each day at pick up time, but as you know, this is not always possible.
ParentZone is packed with features to help you improve partnership with parents
Busy parents find out about their child’s day wherever they are. With notifications to inform them whenever a new observations is published parents will never miss a moment of their child’s development again. Even those parents that aren’t able to collect their child themselves can have a better connection to the setting and get more involved in their child’s learning.
Parents can comment on observations posted to their child’s learning journey so you don’t need to wait until parents’ evening to get feedback. Your parents can even upload their own observations from their time outside of nursery to give you a more complete view of a child’s learning experiences. Receiving observations from home will give practitioners more information to use in planning activities and next steps and will strengthen bonds with the family.
With Connect Cashflow, parents have the convenience of being able to pay their fees, by card, directly from their app. Parents can view their invoices and outstanding balance on the app so will always be aware if they owe any fees. Admin staff will no longer need to spend hours chasing up late payers and your cash flow will benefit as a result.
Parents are able to log into their secure ParentZone app to view photos of their child at nursery, and now, at the touch of a button, they can select their favourite photos to print, to be delivered directly to their door. They can even create gifts, such as mugs, calendars and photo books, giving them a tangible keepsake to cherish for years to come. The ordering process is quick and easy and won’t take any time away from practitioners and key workers. Best of all, for every photo or gift ordered, the nursery will get a share of the profits.

You can make sure your data is always up to date and accurate as through ParentZone parents can request to edit their own personal details.
Sharing digital observations on the ParentZone app means you no longer have to spend time and money printing photos for learning journeys.
Parents can email themselves a full report of their child’s activities, including photos, so they know exactly what their child has been up to.
Parents with learning difficulties can change the display to suit their needs. They can also log in online if they are without their smartphones.
Connect Childcare take security very seriously. We have ensured that ParentZone is super safe.
The feedback we have had from parents has been extremely positive; being able to access photos and videos of their children means they feel more involved with their nursery experience and the streamlining of our invoicing process makes it easier for them to keep an eye on their payments.
ParentZone is innovative yet easy to engage with. It is something our parents were genuinely excited about before we launched it to them and we have been delighted with the uptake from them.
I have loved being able to keep up-to-date with what they are doing in my spare moments at home or work and not have to trawl through pages of paper recording their progress. ParentZone is really visual and the photos and videos which are uploaded really bring their achievements to life.
ParentZone is available to download from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store
