Advantages for the parents:

  • Creation and submission of excused absence notes takes place directly in the app with only a few clicks.

Communication

Twigsee is a centralised communication channel between the preschool and parents, but it can also be used for internal preschool communication. Teachers and directors can easily inform parents about everything they require. The benefit of this feature is that each user sees only what is relevant to them. Parents, for example, see information only about their child and the class that child is in. For various purposes, the preschool can receive feedback from parents through polls directly in the Twigsee app.

Photos and videos from daily activities Photos and videos from daily activities

Photos and videos from daily activities

Such documentation will undoubtedly give every parent a pleasant boost at work. They can easily follow up with their child on an activity or a discussed topic thanks to such detailed information. At the same time, parents who have this kind of a positive interaction have better relationships with teachers and are much more likely to share their enthusiasm in the form of feedback that is valuable and necessary for the preschool.

Advantages for the preschool:

Preschool and meal fees

Preschool and meal fees

The calculation of fees and meals can often be a complex administrative issue. Since it always depends on individual attendance, the type of attendance programme of each child and any excused absence notes from parents, it is therefore necessary to include all these facts in the calculation. Twigsee performs the calculation automatically based on the actual attendance of children and excused absence notes sent by parents. Furthermore, because everything is recorded in the system, there is no need for information to be passed between classroom teachers or directors. Fees and meals are clearly linked to each child's attendance, and the individual resulting cost is calculated automatically.

The app is completely free to parents, regardless of how many children they have or which school they attend. It is free regardless of the size or type of school their child attends.

Do parents have access to confidential school information?

Absolutely not. Parents only have access to the information about their child and information sent in posts and polls. They can also read information about the school that the school has chosen to display. It is possible to share specific information, such as the contact information for a certain teacher, if you’d like.

Can I access the app only using my iPhone?

Mr. Jimmy

Hello, so far so good with Twigsee. We have managed to create classes and upload students' names. The teachers' names have already been shared and we believe by next week we might have progressed further.

Twigsee caught our attention right away from the presentation thanks to the range of functions offered. It wasn't a system that only dealt with attendance or just the registry. It offered us the opportunity to have everything under one roof. And the cherry on top of the cake was the possibility of sending parents contributions about how their children are doing in preschool that day. Parents liked the app very quickly. At first, teachers were more concerned about whether preschool management wanted to give them extra work. However, they soon discovered that writing to parents made them happy, and they also finally have an overview of the children's attendance for each day. Twigsee can handle all that is on the agenda in a preschool as well as accounting. Forest preschool, Pohádky z.s., Zvole

We have just started using the Twigsee application, as I was drawn in by an offer. Especially the time saving. I can use my time more meaningfully with my children rather than doing administration. I appreciate the professionalism of the team. Mr. Med answered all of our questions. I was impressed by the enrolment process of new children, attendance and, above all, the connection of teachers with parents, which does not disrupt them from their work with the children. Before signing the contract, we compared the offer of similar applications and came to the conclusion that Twigsee provides the most comprehensive offer of services for preschool needs.

We have been using the Twigsee app in our Fox Nursery for over a year now. Through the app we communicate important information to parents. We share photos of the children's daily activities, and we use surveys, to which parents respond more quickly than in person. We have an overview of how many children are coming on a given day, so we can plan and adjust the day's schedule. Parents especially like the app because they have instant information about what's going on in the preschool, they can see lots of photos and they can excuse their child for the time they need in a few clicks. The Twigsee app is responsive to the needs of our preschools and is quick and easy for teachers, nannies and parents to use. With the Twigsee app, we are simply moving with the times.

Twigsee is a wonderful app that has made communication between the preschool and parents faster, more convenient, and better since we began using it at the beginning of the school year. Also, it unbelievably simplifies the work of employees. Everybody, including the parents, are happy with the app.

Twigsee is a great and innovative app for me as the preschool’s headmaster as well as a mother. There’s finally an app that eases the workload of administrative duties for the MŠMT (Ministry of Education) as well as the MPSV (Social Security) for everyone. It accomplishes all of this in a very easy to use and intuitive way. Communication with the Twigsee team is superb. They were always happy to answer all of my questions about the app and its functions whenever I needed it. As a mother, I value daily, easy-to-view information about my child so that I am informed about what they are doing and have access to information from the preschool, teachers, and administration. I strongly recommend the app for all administrators and parents!

We’ve finally disposed of all signature forms for all applications and online photo galleries, and parents no longer forget about school activities. Parents know what is happening at preschool and are much happier and at ease. We’ve stopped needing to constantly explain and repeat the same things. Thank you.

Twigsee won us over from the moment we started using it. It allows us to manage everything in our preschool in a convenient and easy-to-view manner, all in one place. You’ll love Twigsee because it will make your administrative tasks easier and will make communication with parents faster and more effective. It will not only make your teachers very happy but also the parents! I also greatly appreciate the wonderful support from the Twigsee team which is always prepared to handle our questions and requests. In short, I can wholeheartedly recommend Twigsee without hesitation.

While I was a bit skeptical at first, we have been up and running with Twigsee for a month and a half now without a single problem. We have over fifty reviews from parents and every one of them is positive. Furthermore, parents have started to appreciate all that our teachers do for them and they’ve not only decreased their demands, but have started asking how they can help. They donate toys, company gifts, or homemade Moravian honey. We are happy and are ordering Twigsee for our other location in Průhonice.

Our preschool Malvína has been using the Twigsee app for over half a year. It is a big help to us. Thanks to the child’s profile, we have an easy-to-view list of all their important information. Also, with Twigsee, communication with parents is more convenient. We can share photos with them and using posts, share important information with only selected parents. Not needing to inform each parent individually has saved us a significant amount of work. What we appreciate most about the app, is the easy-to-view attendance. It shows the number of present and excused children and also, alerts us to any children leaving after lunch. Our school highly recommends the app. The team of people who developed the app are definitely professionals in what they do. They responded to all of our questions quickly and are always available to assist us.
