When running a preschool, you have to deal with childcare licensing and funding agencies which requires a lot of paperwork. One of those pesky things is the amount of paperwork that you deal with each day to be in compliance. We at Kinderlime, worry about this all the time. Having talked to so many Headstart and stated funded programs in California, other states and across the world (such as Australia), we saw that you needed an easy way to record parent signature while they signed in and out during drop-off/pick-up.
We are excited to announce, that Kinderlime Sign In-Out app now supports parent signatures. Parents can sign in after putting their pins. Enabling this extra step for physical signatures is an optional feature. These daily sign in out reports with signatures can be printed from the website.

Our preschools and childcare programs have started using Kinderlime as their differentiator against competition. They tell parents about Kinderlime in their tours. At one level Kinderlime enhances the security in the school by providing immediate email notification to parent the moment child is dropped off and picked up.
At a deeper level Kinderlime is your goto communication tool with parents. A mom who is enrolling her 2 year old, is thinking about how she’ll know if her child is ok or not in your care. Our directors tell parents during the tour that they use Kinderlime to send them pictures during the day. Show them a few pictures that you have sent from last year. Let them know – how much you care about your families and children.
Use Kinderlime help you connect with anxious parents. A guilt ridden parent is absolutely thrilled to receive a picture of their happy child while they drive back to work. What was a retention risk, becomes a loyal customer now.

A significant number of camps used Kinderlime for their camper check in-out in 2013. The Check In-Out(a.k.a Sign In-Out) app also provides security notifications to parents so that they are able to know where their child is during the day.
Camps also use Kinderlime for sharing pictures of campers so that parents can know what their children are doing through the day. One such camp - Spartan All Stars in Pasadena, CA is using Kinderlime with these picture sharing features.
Kinderlime works with existing camp registration systems so that providers can export data automatically into our program. To this end, we are excited to announce our partnership with ActivityHero. ActivityHero works with camp providers to bring them registration and marketing services. For parents, it’s a one stop destination for discovering and booking camps and after school activities for their children.
So come on in, sign up for Kinderlime and make your 2014 summer camp much more social and fun.
Kinderlime Team has been busy at work and we released a mobile centric website for parents and providers today. Now your families have a lot more to cheer about just before Christmas. The Kinderlime website works great on any mobile device now. Parents will be able to view pictures in any form factor – an Android tablet, iPad and smart phones of all types.
For existing users, you’ll find minor adjustments to the website but the navigation through the website remains the same.
While the Kinderlime and Sign In-Out iPhone/iPad apps were already allowing you to take pictures and do sign in-out through a iPad/iTouch, the website viewing feature is great for administrators who want to access Kinderlime through their Android phones and Android tablets.
