There and in two other daycare centers in the Zurich area, Aargau, has been tested in the past three months, the Web-App "nubana", the fathers and mothers in real time about the daily routine of your children informed. "Unfortunately, the reactions were the parents and our staff to be positive, we will continue to work with the App and also in our second daycare centre in Texas to introduce", says "Erdmännli"-Inhaberin Tanja Kuepfer.

Even the stool of the Little is documented. And so parents don't miss it when the young and created Beautiful Sand, you will also get to take a photo to see - but only if you have signed a corresponding Declaration of data protection.
Such daily reports for the parents on sleeping and eating habits book, gave it to the day care centre before the introduction of the App, says Kuepfer. "Back then, we had to record everything in writing, today we can enter the information about the language version in the System. The time required is much lower."

take, for example, with five children the same, you can now click their name in the App and the System records the activity for all at the same time.

inquiries from schools
According to the "nubana"-founder Raphaela Cusati also some technical improvements needed to facilitate the handling. In March, she wanted to bring the App to the market. "But we have now been a number of requests, a few from schools. If Whatsapp should be banned, it needs to pursue opportunities to communicate in a data protection-compliant frames in groups, and to inform parents." The idea of the App is to connect all of the with the education or care of involved persons – including play groups, kindergartens and schools.
Apps that Do this, and the children's book can be passed, also in other Zurich-based care facilities. In the nursery, in which Sebastian Danielsson leaves his two children, there is a similar offer for November. "We use the App so often. Some of the information I find even superfluous," he says. "For a long time I was notified, for example, when the children went to the Loo. The exact information about how a lot of vegetables, bread or meat you eat, I find exaggerated."

be Practical, however, organizational information, for example about the precise sequence of the räbenliechtli move or the Esspläne of the week, not to come to home the same on the table. "Helpful, I also find the Push message that I receive when the children arrive in the nursery or picked up. Especially if grandparents or AU Pairs to help care, this Information is important."
Danielsson is also a message, if the children fall asleep and when you Wake up again. "So we know ahead of time how fit you will be, when we will pick you up in the evening and can better assess whether we need to get to bed soon, or whether we can do something about it."
What is a personal contact?
The IT specialist is of the opinion that the communication between the personnel of the crèche and the parents will be simplified thanks to the App in some things. So long are the times of waiting in the evening at the Handover of the children, because much has been communicated about the App. "On the other hand, the danger that the interaction with the supervisors, the human aspect is eliminated completely," says Danielsson. Such a Tool could not replace a direct conversation. "It is not just about food and Drink but also about the social behavior of the children and that will not be detected."
"such A Tool is not a substitute for a direct conversation. It is not just about food and Drink."Sebastian Danielsson
It is particularly important that the supervisor spending a lot of time, the different information type, and that you don't need to be with an iPhone or iPad in the kindergarten on-the-go. "But I have been told that there are many parents who want to be detailed informed about everything. I find that very worrying."
Tanja Kuepfer do not share his concerns. The App is meant for the daycare staff, a simplification of various administrative procedures. "We now have more time for questions and discussions about the development of the children, because the Daily has already been conveyed via the App. The contact with the parents has become even more intense."
