We started using Child Paths back in April 2016 and since then we have greatly reduced the amount of paper work in our service. The guys from Child Paths, Ciaran and Robbie, are so easy to deal with and always on the end of a phone for any technological queries and questions that need answering.
The biggest thing for us is how it allows our staff document and display all the hard work throughout the course of the day. The picture option allows snaps of circle times, craft activities and sensory play as well as those once of moments of absolute fun and excitement that parents so often miss out on. Its true what they say, “a picture is worth a thousand words”, and with Child Paths parents get that insight in to their child’s day from their work or office space.
One of the biggest factors we heard from parents feed back is the fact they can use the app as a prop to encourage communication with their child about their day. So often parents ask the question “What did you do today?” with the response generally being “nothing”. This is no longer the case for so many of our families, as parents can now discuss with the children food types eaten, activities carried out and also having the pictures to back it all up. It really has helped bring the creche and home environment closer together.
We are delighted to have Child Paths as part of our services team and we look forward to continued years working together.”
