Partnership In Your Pocket

ParentZone is an award winning smartphone app for parents. Parents can access information about their child’s day at a time that suits them best. ParentZone increases partnership with parents by allowing two way communication between parents and your nursery.

Why Choose ParentZone?

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.

Through ParentZone, busy parents can log in and view their child’s daily activities and wow moments when it is most convenient for them. Parents can contribute to their child’s learning journey, make notes for key workers and strengthen their bond with the staff and setting.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

ParentZone is packed with features to help you improve partnership with parents

Convenience for Parents

Busy parents can log in and find out about their child’s day wherever they are. The convenience of viewing observations and events as soon as they are published, gives parents complete peace of mind. 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.

Parental Contribution

Parents are encouraged to 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.

Direct Fee Payment

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.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Eliminate Printing Costs

Sharing digital observations on the ParentZone app means you no longer have to spend time and money printing photos for learning journeys.

Always up to date

Parents can update information, such as contact numbers and addresses themselves. So you will never have out of date information again.

Day in the Life Reports

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.

Accessibility

Parents with learning difficulties can change the display to suit their needs. They can also log in online if they are without their smartphones.
