Features

  • Parent Communication: HiMama makes it easy to communicate with parents via the app, text or email. You can share videos, updates, photos, and more. Delight parents and bridge the gap between learning that happens in your program and learning at home.
  • Contactless Check-In: Parents can check-in their children securely from their mobile devices. No paper or pen required. Timestamps register the time each child arrived to the exact minute.
  • Classroom Management: Have your classroom at your fingertips. Use tablets to record observations through a simple to use interface, and share pictures and reports with parents in real time. Plus, directors and supervisors can stay in the loop about what is happening in each classroom.
  • Advanced Daily Sheets: Goodbye paper daily reports! HiMama saves you on average five hours a week. Use digital daily sheets for meals, naps, activities and more. Send the daily reports automatically by the end of the day or manually whenever you need.
  • Observations: Attach photos or videos with classroom observations to show their development in action. Save time by making notes about all children at once, multiple at a time, or child by child, if you need to. Plus, you can easily tag them by age range, domain, and skill.
  • Assessment: Your program provides stimulating learning and development activities, but are parents informed about your hard work? Enter HiMama to save the day. Every child receives a unique development report showing teacher’s notes across learning domains, all aligned to your developmental standards.
  • Billing: If you’re using a manual system to keep track of payments, things can get overwhelming. HiMama allows you to set flexible tuition plans, create and send custom invoices, generate reports and track all your billing activities at a glance.
  • Lesson Planning: Use HiMama to record planned learning experiences for the week and automatically align them to your program’s learning domains, such as cognitive, sensory, or physical development. Plus, you can automatically connect to your state or province’s framework.
  • Portfolios: Portfolios are a great way to see a child’s experiences in an organized format. Say goodbye to binders and hello to the online portfolio, which is automatically generated as educators record photos, stories and observations in the classroom.
  • Preschool Activity Planner: Access developmentally-appropriate activities developed by HiMama’s team of early childhood educators to share with your staff or families. Complete with step-by-step instructions, videos and free printables.

They had a home daycare and they decided to go big because of the need. One of the hardest things is talking to parents on the phone and telling them that maybe in two years we’ll get you in.

We were using paper attendance sheets and weekly reports and of course you have to keep records, so we have hundreds of boxes that we’ve got to keep for years. If there’s ever a court case or something then we’ve got to go back through three million pieces of paper to look at attendance records.

“We implemented [HiMama] into the first location so that we could start understanding it and getting all of the girls trained on it and so by the time we opened the second location we knew how to use it really well.

As much as I was leery about it, I’m actually really glad we did it and the parents are loving it

I love that I can just go on HiMama and message all the parents at both centers and just tell them something really quick

We didn’t start using the billing and invoicing until this month because the first month was just chaos. I was a little bit overwhelmed and nervous but it actually ended up being fairly easy, so I’m glad that we finally jumped into that as well.
