We’ve recently started a new usage-based subscription plan for child care professionals. The subscription allow all linked users (staff and parents) to download and use the mobile app for free.
The new usage-based monthly plans (named Premium+ and Professional+) replace our previous fixed-price legacy plans (named Premium, Professional and Enterprise). The features of the new plans are the same as our legacy plans with the addition of the free mobile app download. We’re working on new features that will only be available on the new usage-based plans.
If you are an existing subscriber of a legacy plan, you are not required to switch to the new plans, you can keep your existing plan. In that case, your parents will be asked to buy the mobile app fee via in-app purchase. New users can only subscribe to the new usage-based subscriptions.
In addition, starting August 15, 2018, we’ll begin enforcing usage limits for users with no monthly subscription plan. The new daily usage with the free plan will be limited to 50 entries and 5 photos per account.

The Premium+ and the Professional+ plans have the same price. The Premium+ plan is designed for family daycare with one classroom and one teacher. It is easier to setup than the Professional+ plan which can manage multiple classrooms, multiple teachers and multiple locations. You can switch from a Premium+ to a Professional+ plan by emailing email@example.com.
In addition to unlimited usage, a subscription gives you the following additional benefits:
- Free mobile application for you and for parents.
- Daily summary emails can be automatically sent to parents (and optionally to you) at the end of the day. You can also schedule automatic daily or weekly emails sent to you for backup with the classroom info.
- Real-time daily attendance, weekly and monthly attendance reports for each classroom and for each child.
- Enable a Sign in/out kiosk to allow each parent to sign in/out their child via a unique pin code. The ability to collect signature and photos will also be available very soon.
- Send emergency Text/SMS messages to parents, and automatically send recurring emails to parents (for instance to remind them to order lunch or pay bill each month).
- Customize the web application
- Upload documents (.pdf, doc, …) to parents for newsletter, menus, forms, …
- Manage classrooms and teachers under the same Professional+ plan
You can subscribe to a Premium+ and Professional+ plan in the settings > billing page of the web application. You will only be charged after the 7 days free trial period. You can cancel the subscription at any time.
