Features Primarily Used: Moments and Messaging
Daily: Ms. White uses Daily Digest to send Moments home automatically at 4PM on the days when she sees each group. Families love receiving the photos, and have expressed feeling more connected to their children’s daycare experience.
Weekly and Monthly: On Friday Ms. White sends her families a Message that includes the menu for the next week, and other important information that they need to know. Most of her parents get emails, but she’s had a few download the Kaymbu for Parents App. She likes to uses the Urgent setting to send text messages at important times, like when a sick child needs to be picked up, or when she’s closing due to inclement weather.
Daily: Ms. Zhao captures lots of Moments to send home in the Daily Digest. She likes adding captions and as many notes as possible so the students’ families understand what’s going on in the activity, and the skills that they’re working on.
Weekly and Monthly: On Fridays, Ms. Zhao goes through her Moments and adds her Highlights My Tag to ones that will be great to discuss with families during conferences, and makes sure that each of them has good notes. Also, at the end of the month she makes a collage of some of the best Moments and writes a summary of what the students worked on. She prints it out for the classroom wall too!
Ms. White wants to upgrade to a Pro account at the end of the year, specifically so she can start using more Storyboards to highlight her teachers’ hard work and Voice Broadcast to augment her family communication. She also wants to use Reports to track student attendance.
