13 Sep, 2017 – HiMama, a child care software company with a social purpose that connects hundreds of thousands of working parents with their children in preschool, now also supports leaders in early childhood education with the release of its new staff management product.
HiMama is a leading technology provider in the early learning sector. The social enterprise supports child care organizations in their daily operations through streamlining processes, connecting educators with families and improving the quality of early childhood programming.
“As a technology company, we believe that improving outcomes for children means supporting educators and administrators in their daily tasks,” says Ron Spreeuwenberg, CEO of HiMama. “This feature has been highly requested from child care directors that we work with as they want a centralized system to help them keep track of ratios, teacher attendance and staff profiles. The consensus is that saving time on repetitive administrative tasks translates to more time that can be invested into mentorship and professional development.”
Apart from supporting educators with its technology, HiMama is an advocate for supporting leaders in early childhood education. The company does this through providing accessible online resources such as articles on staff engagement, research projects like the 2017 Child Care Benchmark Report and podcasts with notable leaders in the field – the company recently interviewed Patti Clark, Vice President of Product Development at Lakeshore Learning on her career journey.
“The biggest challenge of being in a childcare setting is time,” says Katelyn Vickers, Registered Early Childhood Educator and Community Advisor at HiMama. “Many centers still operate using dated and inefficient systems and that’s a huge timesink. One of the reasons I joined HiMama was because I saw a change coming in the technology that centers were bringing on to improve daily processes and knew that I had to become part of this movement. The time saved is truly helpful in helping educators focus on the meaningful work like building relationships with children and their families as well as professional development.”
The HiMama Staff Management Product is now available for existing and new HiMama customers.
HiMama is a leading provider of documentation and parent communication apps to the child care sector. HiMama apps enable leading child care, preschool, and early learning programs to build stronger relationships with their families and streamline operations. HiMama is based in Toronto, Canada.
