Kinderlime Comes To BBS
From time to time asked various members of our faculty to write guest posts here on the Bobcat Blog. Today's post is by Director of I.T. Bradley Chambers, who discusses why we have begun using this new software. Bradley has worked very hard to establish BBS as a leader in educational technology instruction not only in our area, but in our region. He is always available to answer technology related questions for our parents as well. We first heard of this software at the NAIS annual conference this past spring. As we explored it, it just seemed to make a lot sense and be a good fit for our school. In the post, Mr. Chambers explains how this new software works.
We are very excited about the launch of Kinderlime’s Sign In-Out program at BBS for After School Care.
In keeping with our commitment to continual growth and improvement, we are making changes to the pick up process that will feel will not only be easier for parents, but will also increase our safety procedures. This new program will allow parents to sign in-out their children using an app that captures and organizes ASC data.
Your entire interaction with the Sign In-Out app only takes seconds! We know it can be frustrating walking through our hallways from the gym to the library to the playground trying to find your child. Another feature of this software is that you will be able to see (via the app) where your child is in our building. One of the main changes is that all parents now enter through the Kindergarten hallway to check your children out of ASC. We will have a dedicated staff member just inside the doors and each caregiver will be given a unique 4-digit pin that will be entered into an iPad there.
All parents were emailed PIN and app registration codes. If you'd like to add more people, we can do that as well. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to request additional PIN codes, or if you have trouble signing into the apps.
So far we've heard extremely positive feedback from our parents after the first few days of school. We hope your are enjoying the new software as much as we are!
