Mobile App & Site

Kindertales’ parent mobile app and web site allow parents to see what’s happening in their child's day as it occurs anywhere at any time. They stay current with their child's progress and feel like they are part of their day.


The mobile app is available as a download from the Apple App Store, Google Play Store or the Amazon App store. Parents can also access Kindertales via any web browser on their desktop or mobile devices!


*The parent mobile experience is designed around phone sized screens and as such desktop features must be accessed via a tablet, laptop or desktop PC.

News Feed

Parents get to see everything from daily activities with photos, to milestones and messages from teachers and location staff.



See how children are progressing in care while it happens. Instead of waiting for parent/teacher meetings now parents can see milestones that their child is reaching while they are in care.


Daily Activities

See everything that is happening in a child’s day as soon as the staff enter it on their tablets. What they ate, when they slept, where they played and much more.



Notify the childcare if your child will be away from school or needs to attend on an unscheduled day.


Baby Bulletin

Infant parents can inform the staff of their babies eating, sleeping and other health related info online so that they aren’t doing it at drop off time.



Users can manage their notifications, what reports show up on their News Feed and their attendance settings.

Check-In App

Using “Kindertales Check-In” in your locations allows parents to check-in their children using facial recognition or a QR code!*

Your parents will love seeing their children progress towards a variety of Milestones with updates that include photos and notes from their teacher.

Easy Browsing

Browsing the Milestones section on mobile and desktop is a breeze for parents using the simple interface and colour coded progress bars.


Track Development

Parents can see the progress their child makes towards each Milestone with "attempt" updates that are recorded on the teacher tablet.


When your location has information to share with a parent it shows up in the notification section. Parents can even sign forms here.

News Feed

The mobile and desktop both feature a robust news feed that gives real time updates on a child's day. These include daily activity, nutrition, milestones and many more.



Send messages to your customers as individuals or groups. Parents can sign-off on forms in the received message.


Milestone Updates

Milestone progress and achievements appear as updates with large photos and notes from the teacher.


Both the mobile and desktop feature a powerful settings section that allows parents to configure Kindertales so they are receiving the updates that matter to them the most.

Customize Kindertales

Parents with more than one enrolled child can choose which child to display on sign-in. The News Feed can be set to show specific updates from all children or just one at a time.


Custom News Feed & Email Notifications

In the email settings parents can see everything that can be emailed to you about their child's daily activities. They can turn off any email notices they don’t wish to receive.

“Kindertales is great for working parents, it is nice to receive updates throughout the day about my child. Receiving milestone reports and notifications is a great way to keep up to date on my child's progress, and it adds to conversation at the end of the day with my child’s teachers.” - Nicole - Parent
