What People Say

We think our customers say it best.


Before tend.ly, we always did daily sheets on paper. Now we have all our information in one place, which makes it easy for parents to read, and it’s all in real time. Everything is simplified and easy to find, so there’s no need for one-off emails anymore.


tend.ly really helps our teachers with shift change. The teachers have all the information in one place, so if they haven’t spent the whole day with a child, they still know what their day has been like. And for teachers who might not see their kids’ parents at the end of the day, all the information is there in tend.ly.


When we first started using tend.ly, parents were overwhelmingly quick to say how much they loved it. As they started receiving the daily updates, pictures, and videos, they immediately felt more involved in what went on with their child during the day.
