"Best tool I’ve found to improve family and staff communication!"

Comments: The biggest benefit to our rep is definitely having the ability to improve communication with families. Owning and working in a preschool you definitely realize that this is a coparenting business. Without proper communication between the administration, teaching staff and families Important aspects of a child’s daily activities, educational progress and goals get lost. Kaymbu has eliminated that lose of information and made it possible for us to maintain better bonds with families and serve our children in the most efficient way.

Pros: The ability to communicate effectively with families, allow teachers to document and track each child’s successes and share the moments with their families. The bonus features are customizing it for our DRDP assessments, creating storyboards that eliminates newsletter waste. Imputing curriculum plans for staff to refer to and share. Instant messaging to families and the new yearbook! There’s so much to take advantage of that I couldn’t possibly list all the benefits we have found!

Cons: All you have to do is pick it up and start playing. The only con would be how to implement all the great features. We’ve been using Kaymbu for over a year and just keep discovering more ways to use it.

"Portfolios are awesome!"

Comments: The customer service and support we've received, along with the great product, have made Kaymbu a please to use in our preschool.

Pros: My favorite feature of Kaymbu is the portfolio feature. Not only does it make compiling the pictures extremely easy, but the achievement benchmarks, along with the overall look of the portfolios, make them a user-friendly, professional document to share with the parents.

Cons: I wish the daily note was a part of the features of Kaymbu, instead of having to use a separate portal.

"Overall improvement for organization"

Pros: Kaymbu has really improved the way we communicate with our families and we have had such positive reception from this software. Teachers have a much easier time completing tasks as complex as portfolios and as simple as announcing a pizza party. This has also immensely improved the documentation and reflection that occurs in our classrooms.

Cons: We still do a fair amount of printing of our documentation and Kaymbu has limited support for printing. It seems like it was designed without ever including options for the amount of printing that most schools need to do. I also call customer services quite a bit with questions around printing and most times I am just told Kaymbu wasn't designed for printing so there isn't much they can do.

"Transformational Software"

Comments: We have been BEYOND thrilled with Kaymbu since 'inception'!

Pros: This software magically meets all users where they are in terms of various comfort levels regarding use of technology. It significantly eases both the process of photo/video documentation and communication with families The customer service is to be greatly commended - every person I have worked with from the start has been friendly, competent, and very responsive.

Cons: Bulk downloads of photos/videos were more difficult at first, but I believe this has become easier over time.

"Life made Simple"

Comments: The best customer service. No matter how many times we call they patiently answer our questions or gets right back to me.

Pros: It connects the families daily to their child's classroom. Can send videos and photos. Leaves more decision making and control up to the classroom teachers

Cons: Took awhile to get the "kinks" out and get used to using
