Streamline center operations and connect families to their child’s learning

Our all-in-one app simplifies everyday administrative tasks, provides daily reports, and engages families in activities that directly support classroom instruction.

We have loved using the integrated system through Teaching Strategies for curriculum, assessment, and family communication! It has allowed us to seamlessly track our students’ development and communicate both daily and developmental updates to the families. The investment in this resource has saved us time and money, allowing our staff to focus on the education of our children.
