Now you can use technology to stay connected with your child all day long! HiMama is a direct line of communication between teachers, care givers and parents to make sure you don’t miss any important milestones and feel up to date on your child’s early education.

HiMama is used by educators to record activities and updates throughout the day. Everything from naps to snacks, it provides parents with a complete history of your child’s experience in the program with photos stored safely and securely in a journal format. Whether it be at work, home or on the go through HiMama’s mobile apps, parents will receive real-time updates on their child’s activities to their email and smartphone. 

“The best part about HiMama is being able to record their developmental process which helps us know exactly how they are doing and being able to share those special moments with the families,” says Preschool Director Vee Whorline. 

HiMama strengthens communication between parents and teachers and builds a stronger bond with parents. As for a parent-child relationship, parents feel closer to their child because they are no longer missing out on the little things and the app makes them feel like they are part of their child’s day. It’s a great conversation piece at the dinner table or on the ride home.

“As a parent, I love the app,” says DaveAnn Estocado. “It keeps me in the know with daily reminders, videos, and pictures of both my children and the fun things they do in school. I feel like I am not missing out on everything while at work.”
