Kinderly’s intuitive web and mobile app enables you to quickly and securely capture EYFS observations, daily diaries and wow moments, even when you’re out and about with the children.
The web dashboard enables you to easily manage your setting with at-a-glance information: reports, development tables and cohort analyses, supporting you to be more organised and Ofsted-ready. For example:
The EYFS Summary Table
The Cohort Tracker. Track children's progress over time according to their development in the EYFS. View cohorts grouped by SEND, EYPP, gender and more.
Weekly EYFS based activities to inspire you and share with parents
Every week Kinderly's early years experts put together age appropriate activities for you to share directly with parents, at the click of a button, or use in your setting.
"Giving us these activity ideas each week is fab... so helpful!" -
Cheri Williams, Childminder
Kinderly’s parent portal, emails and notifications enable parents to keep up-to-date with their child’s daily activities and development, in real time. Activities can be suggested, personalised to each child’s learning journey, and parents can comment back enhancing the parent partnership and improving parent engagement.
Now includes 'Postcards from Home' so parents can share observations from home with the childcare setting - further joining up their learning journey.
Exclusive invoicing and accounting package
Included in the price is a fully integrated accounting and invoicing package, helping you to stay on top of your income and expenses.
