Great parent portal!

5,0 6 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: It’s a great app for parents to keep abreast of their kids daily happenings. It’s easy to use, easy to follow and makes saving the cute pictures from their day a breeze.

Pluspunten:

As a parent, this app is very user friendly. I have multiple children and the organization of each of their updates and pictures makes it so easy to check in on their day.

Minpunten:

Every once in a while the app won’t update for me right away when opening; occasionally getting stuck on a different day. Typically if I close it and open it up a little while later the issue resolves itself.

We LOVE Tadpoles

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: We have been overall very pleased with Tadpoles as it is easy to use, efficient, and was a nice addition to our unique communication features

Pluspunten:

Tadpoles is easy to use, helps to get important information out to families, connect with staff and send photos and progress notes to families so they can see their children's activities, especially during the pandemic when parents are not permitted in the building.

Minpunten:

There are no features that I can think of that leave me unsatisfied. Tadpoles was well developed and really is useful to busy teachers and administrators

Steering Clear of Tadpoles - Do yourself the favor and use another option.

1,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: At this point, I rate tadpoles at the bottom of the tier for childcare operational systems. This should be easier to navigate, your staff should be knowledgable and be able to help with deleting duplicate accounts, updating access for the room devices, quickly change functionality when emergencies arise. This system boasts these functions, but they are unable to execute.

Pluspunten:

At this point nothing, the lack of support is mind boggling. The sales team was great and I felt very comfortable at first. Once I started having technical issues, the lack of support has made using this system virtually impossible. I have on numerous occasions reached out to be sent to voice mail and not receive a return phone call. From the onset, I was informed that I would be able to make changes and update passwords. This I can't do, I can't even check the user name and password for the devices I need to use the system.

Minpunten:

The user ability of the center admin or overall center Director. I should be able to view the devices and staff, check or update passwords, delete duplicate child accounts, update staffing , none of this have I been able to do without having to contact customer support. When I do call for support, the support staff has numerously been unable to help. I am very unhappy with tadpoles and its support staff.

Every daycare should use an app

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: We used this when apps in daycares were very new to the market and I'm so glad it was available to us. We've really become used to the convenience and I can't imagine using a daycare without an app.

Pluspunten:

When friends are looking for new daycare centers I always encourage them to use a center that has an app and camera system. Tadpoles was great when my kids were babies because I knew exactly what went on throughout the day. As they got older I would read the entries and see the photos and it would give me prompts to encourage them to talk about their day.

Minpunten:

I wish there was a way to easily export all of the photos and memories all at once.

Good beginner Childcare software

4,0 7 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Tadpole is great to start usibg if you have never used a software in your classroom before. Definitely helps you stay more organized.

Pluspunten:

Tadpole allows you to digitally input everything from your students day in the comfort of your own classroom. With something as small as a phone, you can download the app and input their whole day. Everything from diaper changes to feedings and parents absolutely love it. It completely changed how I organized my classroom. We never had any problems uploading anything, which was amazing.

Minpunten:

There are better softwares out on the market right now that allow you to do more with their app. More features so we stopped using Tadpole for this reason. Its a great beginner software, but we out grew it. You can't do as many admin features as other software inn the market.

Tadpoles is great!

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I love this software! It is a wonderful tool to have for any daycare! It provides an easy way to keep parents informed without having to write it all on paper per student.

Pluspunten:

Tadpoles is used at my granddaughter's daycare. It is an excellent tool to see how your child did that day! It lists all the important information from the daycare to the parent or guardian.

Minpunten:

There's nothing that I dislike about this software. It is a very effective way to keep parents or guardians informed!

Pretty darn good.

5,0 6 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: smoother daily operations

Pluspunten:

Amount of content that can be stored for each student. I like the daily count and the historical info too.

Minpunten:

Slow communication between tablets and server. Wish that new students populated faster than they do. We add new students, then there is a dupe once system catches up.

Tadpoles review

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I really love this app. We have also used HiMama and I feel like that app is a little more personalized.

Pluspunten:

I love this app and the peace of mind it creates while my son is at daycare. It allows the daycare to give me updates, diapers, food eaten, and pictures.

Minpunten:

I wish I could send messages back to the daycare with the app or give more personalized messages any time.

As a professional child care provider, I found this software extremely convenient and time-saving.

4,0 6 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: This software provides me the greatest benefits in time-saving and general efficiency. Everything I need -- reports, student info, parent info, etc. -- is literally all in one place. I feel that because of this software and the efficiency boost it provides, not only is more time and energy focused on the students themselves, but that they're safer as a result. Constantly trying to shuffle around paperwork while teaching is no longer an issue! Plus, I didn't have to carry around a heavy binder anymore. Whew!

Pluspunten:

What I like most about this software is the convenience of having all of my student information in one place, readily available at the literal touch of a fingertip. As a professional child care provider for over five years, I can't begin to tell you how much time, paper, and grief this software has saved. I love that each staff member and student's name has a photo listed right there with their name -- makes it so much easier on subs. And thing is, the whole program is so easy to navigate, most people would be able to learn the ins and outs within a few days use. One of my favorite features is the ability to share a photo or update with a parent in real time, and the fact that doing so only requires a few taps of the screen. While no product is ever going to be perfect, compared to similar software I've encountered, I'd go with Childcare by Tadpoles every time.

Minpunten:

While overall, my experience has been generally positive with this software, like anything else there have been some hiccups. My biggest complaint is that occasionally the software freezes when you're in the middle of updating a report or trying to perform some other (what should be a) relatively quick task. For some reason I run into this most frequently while using the in-app camera, though this problem has improved with each update. Another more rare issue occurred when, maybe once a month, a report would not get through to a parent or parents. I will say that for the most part during those issues, customer service was pretty much on top of it and able to help resolve the problem nearly immediately.

Tadpoles for communication

4,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Tadpoles is a great way to build a relationship with families by making them a part of their child's daily events. No parent wants to miss an important event during their child's day, and Tadpoles allows them to be part of it all.

Pluspunten:

Tadpoles is a great way to build relationships with families. It is an easy way to share pictures and events with family members throughout the day.

Minpunten:

The price is a little bit much for a Public School to maintain our subscription. If the funds were available, this would be amazing to keep using with my Kindergarten families. There is also no way for families to share pictures and videos with the teacher.

5,0 6 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Monitoring my child's life. This is such a lifesaver and it should cost triple what it does.

Pluspunten:

I love this software because it gives me a live look at what my child is doing at all times. I love te pictures they send you as updates. Make my day every time.

Tadpoles and My Child

I enjoy seeing the pictures of my child, knowing what he ate and how much of it he ate. It is easy to use and I have experienced no difficulties with it in the past 19 months since I began using it.

Minpunten:

The portion where you can communicate with the teacher sometimes does not work on the app.

Pluspunten:

This software is very easy to use as a communication tool. I like that it is so simple to send information to parents and that they get a notification when new info is entered.

Tadpoles

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

The best thing about this software is getting updates about your child's day. It gives you peace of mind when you cannot be with them.

Minpunten:

With the child care center taking pictures and sending updates throughout the day, I worry that it could be a distraction from supervision in the classroom. This is not really a reflection of the software, but a result of using the software in a classroom.

Childcare Tadpoles

Pluspunten:

You can choose a class. You are able to move kids easily in whatever classroom including yourself. You can keep an album of pictures.

Minpunten:

Too many features to toggle back and forth. You can easily make a mistake. It's not easy to use and it too complex
