Since signing on as a tend.ly customer in early 2015, Karoline Sheets, program director at Learning Tree Childcare Ministry in Anderson, IN, has become a trusted advisor whose input and guidance have played an instrumental role in the evolution of tend.ly.
Also, before tend.ly, our teachers would spend most of nap time documenting daily activities for parents on sheets of paper. These sheets of paper would often end up on the floor of their car, or – believe it or not – in the trash can on the way out the door.
Now, parents are using the daily emails and the app to look back at the progress their child has made. I have one parent specifically that was asked to keep a food journal for her toddler. With tend.ly she is able to pull up her meals very easily and track when she ate, what she ate, and how much she ate.
What’s your favorite thing about tend.ly?
Finally, one of my most favorite things is that I can always reach out to the tend.ly team if I’m having an issue and they are very quick at resolving any problems as well as giving me options as we work through the issue.
How do your teachers feel about tend.ly?
How do parents react when they find out Learning Tree is using tend.ly?
Parents also love the fact that they receive real-time updates. Prior to using tend.ly, I would have parents call me throughout the day to check on their child – especially the parents of younger children. Now it’s not to say that they don’t call to check in, but they have the real-time option of getting updates, which gives them greater peace of mind, so they call in less.
