You and your teachers are posting signs, sending home hand-written daily reports, notes and printed newsletters, yet parents still overlook the important stuff.
You have assessments, meetings, and conferences a few times per year, but they really don't show off the miracles that are happening each day in the classroom.
Your teachers could send out emails and text messages, but releasing your parents’ contact information to everyone in your school can create serious issues around privacy and confidentiality. Plus, how can you know what information is being sent and to whom?
Therefore, sometimes parents undervalue the quality of your teachers, your program, your school, and the positive effects they are having on their children... simply due to an absence of communication.
Keeping your parents informed and involved is the foundation for having them love your school. When your parents are your fans, your school remains full and everyone’s life is better.
ParentPost is the solution to help your preschool or childcare center use current technology to get parents the information they need. Now your staff can finally show parents the wonderful things happening in your classrooms every day and keep them engaged.
Most importantly, ParentPost is simple enough that everyone can use it, right from the start.
ParentPost is designed specifically to meet the needs of preschools and childcare centers.
Teachers post updates and daily reports for their classroom or for individual students.
Include photos, videos, documents, or PDF's with your updates to save time and printing costs.
ParentPost sends email updates to the relevant parents and keeps them private from non-relevant parents.
Parents can securely login to see all of their updates and download photos and documents.
ParentPost is smartphone and tablet ready. There's no need for computers in every classroom.
Administrators can control accounts, view all school updates, and post updates to anyone in the school.
ParentPost is designed from the ground up with simplicity in mind. If your teachers and parents are overwhelmed or confused by complicated software, then they simply will not use it. With ParentPost, anyone can use it, immediately. without instructions. There’s responsive, helpful support for anyone who needs it.
When you send and update, there’s only one box to type in. Attaching images and documents is a breeze. You can preview the update before sending it, know exactly who the update is for and how many parents will receive an email.
ParentPost's daily reports allow a teacher to quickly send parents information about meals, naps, diapering, etc. for all of their classroom's students. No more filling out tedious individual written reports for every child only to have them ignored by the parents.
Even though ParentPost is simple, the sorting and grouping options available make it a powerful communication tool. You can quickly post an update to all parents in multiple classrooms or pick out the individual families that you need to update.
When parents receive email updates on their child it allows them to participate in their child’s day. Parent’s negative emotions about child care are usually rooted in lack of communication or miscommunication. With ParentPost, that’s no longer an issue.
Imagine each of your families having a detailed history of every precious event and milestone of their child’s development. Start using ParentPost now to build that history by the time their children graduate.
Parents will feel comfortable leaving their child at your school knowing they will have real-time notifications of events, concerns, and achievements. Social networking and sharing sites are great, but when it comes to personal family information, they need a system that is private and secure.
Your current families are the biggest asset to your school and with ParentPost you build a direct connection between them and their child’s classroom. Happy, loyal parents tell every other parent they know about your school which will help you grow your enrollment effortlessly.
Today’s high-tech generation of parents expect online communications in every part of their busy lives. Give your school the competitive advantage by using a system to meet their needs and that’s easy to implement.
With ParentPost, your staff will be more productive by spending less time on duplicating hand written notes and reports. Parents will be more informed than ever when they receive the email updates and reports on their children.
Don't take our word for it. Here's what some of our users have to say about ParentPost:
ParentPost is versatile, I can post to whoever I want whenever I want. This also makes communication much more effective. If I need to update the parents of just one room, I don’t have to notify the whole school like we used to do in our email newsletters. It can also be very personal when I update individual parents and I know they are the only ones who can see it.Shannon Mendiola
Parents love getting the updates and seeing the pictures of their children. When their child is learning a new skill like walking or kicking a ball, parents now get to be a part of that when before they would’ve missed out.Kimberlee Crawford
ParentPost saves me a ton of time when giving critical info to parents. Before ParentPost I used to answer the same questions over and over to at least 50 different parents. Now I just post the details of an event on ParentPost. What used to be a huge daily distraction is now gone.Gina Montes
It makes my job much easier. I can't always call a parent in the middle of day.
Now I just post it on ParentPost and I know it will be waiting for them in their email.
We are thrilled with our first week using the ParentPost.
Parents love it and it so simple to use that you can’t help but love it.
