Summer is flying by fast ;) The school year starts in less than a month. You do keep thinking about the processes during this downtime that’ll improve your childcare operations. On everybody’s mind is the humungous amount of paperwork that you have to deal with each day. There is student roster, meal counts, attendance data and the list goes on. Then there is staff records. And most important of all is licencing.
Take a moment to think. Isn’t your sign in-out data and teacher timesheet a big hassle? What if there was an app for it? Yes, there is one – it’s the Kinderlime Sign In-out app. No more paper – just shear fun for everybody. Parents love to sign in on your school iPad. Staff can check in kids. Business office can get an attendance report at the end of the month.
So, take this time to try out Kinderlime. We are confident you’ll never go back to paper.

Afterschool Sign In-Out time tracking for before and after care is a major challenge for many school districts and agencies. Their funding is dependent on accurate reporting of attendance. In some cases, a minimum number of hours are required to be attended in a program to be counted towards a student who can be counted as present. In California the stated funded ASES programs require a minimum of 2 hours of attended time to qualify as a student who attended afterschool.
Kinderlime Sign In-Out is a great way to replace your paper sign in sheets and completely make that electronic. This makes sign in out time tracking error proof. Go paperless, free yourself with in-out time manual entry by using the Kinderlime system.

It’s summer break and camps are loving Kinderlime. Today being the first day of lot of summer camps – they had great things to say about us:
Cowabunga Surfsport in Florida -
Sign In/Sign Out went GREAT today! I think all the parents really appreciate the security that your app offers….and its very easy from our end.
Summer Acting school in California -
Everything is working perfectly! We signed in 140+ kids this morning and my staff loves your app. We’re also using it for our staff check-in/out, so that’s great too. I really appreciate you working over the weekend to help get us set up for today.
I just got called by one of my customers in San Francisco. They were being asked by parents to send out the record for why they were being charged a late Fee. Parents nowdays have severe attention deficit disorder – me included. In this case our provider was able to go into the Kinderlime Sign In Out report and download the monthly Sign In-Out PDF attendance report for the child. It showed exactly how much the child was late by and why the parent was being accessed a late fee. All this was done without having to keep even a single sheet of paper.
You know these parent relationships are critical and Kinderlime helps you navigate it lovingly, respectfully and professionally.

Over the last two years, Kinderlime has brought highly innovative software solutions to make Childcare Management simple and paperless. We brought the first Digital Sign In-Out app on iPad which tracks student and staff time. Childcare programs across the world have embraced our Sign In-Out app – saving them administrative time and enhancing the security of the children they care for.
We have now taken the next step to consolidate our leadership position in Childcare Management. Most of you want to deal with a simple and easy to use software to bill your families. Today, we are happy to announce that we are releasing the industry’s first billing software for childcare that you’ll actually fall in love with. You don’t have to read manuals, go through training or pay for support. It is going to be a software for childcare management which just works for you out of the box. A software that is accessible anywhere and one that automates your billing process.
All this wouldn’t have happened without the wonderful work from our team – which tirelessly continues to create exceptional experiences for preschool teachers, parents and directors. Below is a report for an after school program. Notice that monthly charges of $300 are assigned to the child for attending the afterschool program. We generate excel report for all children in the daycare. Register on Kinderlime to see how easy it is to automate your billing process.
Newsletters is a great way of communicating with families in your preschool and childcare center. A more general use of newsletters is Lunch menus, Lesson Plans and Daily/Monthly/Weekly Newsletters. With Kinderlime you can add pictures/clipart and also use our native web editor to create beautiful newsletters. You can easily tag a child or the whole room or the whole school when sending a newsletter. A copy of each newsletter gets sent to you.
Newsletters are sent to parents in an email and always available as an archive in their parent account on Kinderlime.
If you have not created a newsletter yet – then please register your daycare on the website. Thereafter you can add children and create a newsletter and send one. You’ll find a newsletter tab on the top navigation bar after login.
Insert class photos – If you pictures using the Kinderlime app then you can add those pictures in your newsletters
Embed cliparts from the web – Do you know that Google Images is a great resource for finding some nice clipart images for your newsletters. You can use these images in your newsletters too
Embed cliparts from your local image library – If you have cliparts to use from your computer, then you can embed these cliparts into your newsletters
Templates – Templates has been a very popular feature. It allows you to create a standard format which your whole school can use. Once Templates are created, you can go back to the Templates area to start off from a particular template. A common use would be to template your school’s paper newsletter design and use it over and over again
Add Attachments – Now you can add an attachment to a newsletter. Some of you may want to use this to send a newsletter that you created in word or pdf. But remember – open rates from “busy” parents are low when it comes to attachments, so my advice is to create newsletters within the newsletter editor
We at Kinderlime strongly believe in saving you paper. While we teach our kids to conserve – lets do it ourselves. Paperless newsletters would be a good way to start
