Doesn’t work


On my phone it doesn’t load. I am able to log in but then it is just a blank white screen. Can not do anything . Really want to use this so I can lesson plan on the go but it’s completely useless .

Time Saver


I have been playing with this program for a week now, and I LOVE it!

I work as a Young Toddler teacher in a preschool, and I spend a lot of time filling out paperwork on each child each day. Most of the time it seems the parents don't even read the notes (they stay in the backpacks). This program replaces the notes--it has easy to fill in choices for snacks, meals, potty/toilet, notes, etc. The parents are sent an easy to read summary of their child's day. I especially like how I can write one detailed note and it gets entered on every child in my class (encourages me to write more detail--no more sore hand!). The initial set up was easy--I entered all my kids, their parents' info, the days the kids come, allergies, etc. When I start class in the morning, attendence is a breeze! Only the kids who come that day are shown. I can even enter a known vacation schedule and it will be shown over that child's picture.

The customer support for this app is terrific. I somehow locked myself out of the program (password mix up), so I emailed the contact person. I got an email back within the hour and then a phone call to help me fix my problem.

I think this program is perfect for our school and we plan to use it in all of our classroom next school year.


Child's Play Childcare

I really love this product! This app has made our days easier and even more pleasurable. The parents love the daily reports and we never miss a day (unlike before when we would hand write them out). I never hear "what did they do today?" Its always right there for them to read and see. I use it for so many other things too; separate notes and reminders to the parents, daily staff notes, issuing newsletters, etc. I think one of the most efficient things about using the tadpoles program and app is I can easily track my messages. The customer service is really great too! Whenever I do have an issue, they get back to me quick! Honestly, I don't have anything bad to say. I have told some of my colleagues about the program, but I secretly think using this app gives me a very big edge when it comes to recruiting new clients.
