Educational Institutions Are Now Teaching Child Paths Software
As part of their Advanced Early Childhood Care and Education courses, the Cork College of Commerce who is Ireland’s largest Further Education College, along with Dorset College Dublin, are now teaching Child Paths as part of their course content.
Online Child Registration
You can now get parents & guardians to complete their child’s registration details online through the app. They can add in some information around “get to know me”, upload profile picture, add emergency contacts, health information, doctors details, medicines and more. Once the parents & guardians activate their account they will be prompted to fill in their own details first and then their children’s helping reduce physical contact and will save a huge amount of time on administration.
We have created various digital forms where your parents and staff can digitally sign online like incident & accident, medical consent and cleaning sheets. We have created all the HSA forms for your staff returning to work, these can all be completed online and saved automatically for compliance. You can edit any of the forms or create your own. You can use it to create surveys or questionnaires with colleagues and parents or build your own checklists, it’s endless.
‘Communication is the basis of all relationships’. No more need to write notes into individual children’s notebooks. Instead, send communications digitally to both parents and teachers. You can now share videos, audio files, newsletters, policies, pdf’s, word doc and most other file formats.
Stay inspection compliant. We’re helping thousands of teachers since 2014 with inspections. With our software, reports can be run off at the touch of a button. You can now maintain reports digitally so they can be pulled from your system whenever they are requested for auditing at a click of a button. You can also print or export the reports into excel if needed.
Our video tutorials in every section are fantastic in helping you get up and running on our platform as it will show you section by section how to use the app. However, should you require it, we will come to your service personally to train all your teachers and managers, at a time that suits you.
Video & Audio
Now if you need to share videos or music, it can be done at the click of a button. Even if you want to create your own audio with greetings, advice or support to parents and children you can record your own voice and send this to parents. So with Aistear it’s about understanding more about the children outside of the service, now you can even get the children and parents to upload videos of themselves at home.
Text To Speech
Can’t read your own version of ‘shorthand’? Not to worry! You no longer need to write up those pages of notes accumulated throughout your busy day. With Child Paths, you just talk into your tablet and it will type it up for you. Have a go. It’s easy! Another feature which will free up some of your valuable time, allowing you to spend it with the children and communicate much quicker and smarter.
Storage - Policies, Schemes, Health & Safety, Administration and more
Endless boxes of files filling up your office. Now you can store everything on Child Paths and share with your colleagues or guardians. You can drag and drop folders from one to another. You can upload all the files from your computer and password protect ones which are sensitive. You can even use your printer to scan all the paper files into pdf’s and upload to Child Paths giving you back all that space..

The Crann Support Group considered many different digital products on the market, both at home and abroad. The product that could most obviously meet the needs of the childcare facility and parents alike was the Child Paths App. This decision was an outcome of a consultation process, which involved Childcare Professionals and Parents. We have found the team at Child Paths to be extremely professional and helpful with all of our queries and would not hesitate in lending our name to support their product.

We have been working with Child Paths since 2017. We have found every part of the process seamless and easy. The staff has more time with the children in their care with the use of tablets instead of paperwork. As childcare practitioners, we understand that supporting families and open communication and interaction leads to better outcomes for children. We now see Child Paths as an integral part of achieving these close relationships with parents. We would not be without it.

Love this software! We began working with Child Paths in May 2018 and have the app in place in our seven centres. It’s a great tool and takes a lot of pain out of the day-to-day paperwork. I love looking at my own child’s photos and updates too. Well worth it and well thought out product. Highly recommend it and the team are a pleasure to deal with too.

Child Paths has allowed us to spend more time with the children and for us, that is the most important factor. It has immensely reduced the level of paperwork and improved communication within the group and our parents. It is a real conversation starter. The support and time given by the team enabled a smooth transition from a mountain of paperwork to a streamlined system. I have nothing but praise for Child Paths as both a Manager and a Parent.

The Child Paths application has had a significant impact on our service. Our reliance on paper documentation, e.g. attendance sheets, daily records, sleep charts, food records and child observation records, has decreased dramatically. We no longer need to store large quantities of documents, now we store this information electronically.
We have an obligation to work in partnership with parents/guardians, to ensure the best possible outcomes, and we do this through sharing information. In my opinion, there is no better way to do this than through the Child Paths app.

We have introduced Child Paths in 5 of our services and it has improved and simplified our record keeping. Staff and parents appreciate the ease with which we can share relevant information and updates including pictures and activities.
The system saves staff time, allows for clear and concise messages to be passed between relevant people while meeting new requirements for TUSLA and POBAL. It also provides the back office with easier access to relevant details. We are happy to recommend this system
