ParentZone App / Connect Childcare Software
ParentZone is a smartphone app for parents. Parents will never miss a moment of their child’s development again with regular notifications of their child’s activities and achievements. They can access information, child observations and important assessments at a time that suits them best.
WHY USE PARENTZONE?

Through ParentZone, busy parents can log in and view their child’s daily activities and wow moments when it is most convenient for them. Parents can contribute to their child’s learning journey, make notes for their key person and strengthen their bond with the staff and setting.
