Excusing children is only a matter of a few clicks in the app. Parents send a note directly from their phone and immediately receive confirmation of its registration. The kindergarten does not have to write these manually, due to reporting being via SMS or the phone. The note will automatically be saved in attendance and wherever it's needed. At the same time, the kindergarten quickly and easily orders the exact number of lunches required, and the cost of meals is automatically recalculated for children.
Data protection and security is a priority within the Twigsee app and the entire system. Everything functions in full accordance with GDPR. No data, including photos, is stored on a phone on which the application is installed, nor on a computer. Data stores are highly secure cloud servers, and nobody can access the app without specific credentials. At the same time, parents grant the kindergarten GDPR consent via a form. However, if parents do not want their child to be photographed at kindergarten, for example, they will state this in the form. In the child's profile, it is clearly visible in the app whether parents have confirmed GDPR or not.
Thanks to the online admission process, parents and kindergartens do not have to worry about demanding paperwork. Parents fill in the necessary data online using a link sent to them by e-mail. Subsequently, documents are generated in a printed version (registration sheets, etc.), where at a meeting with parents all is required is their signature. Everything is prepared according to the applicable legislation and GDPR statutes.
Information provided by parents during the admission process using the online form are stored directly in the child's register after admission. The kindergarten will automatically find all the necessary documents generated in it, it can record additional information or personal notes about children. The most required data is available to teachers in one click directly in the mobile application. These include, for example, allergy data, health restrictions or pick-up information. Teachers don't have to check the information in their respective boxes, but they just need to click on the child's information card directly in the Twigsee app.
Twigsee is a unified communication channel between kindergarten and parents, but also the possibility of internal communication within the kindergarten. Teachers and management alike can easily and purposefully inform parents about everything they need. The advantage of this feature is that every user sees only what concerns them. For example, parents only see information about their child and the class they are in. In various situations, the kindergarten can get feedback from parents through surveys directly in the Twigsee app.
The essential virtue of this function is its substantial human interaction. A photograph of a happy child playing with something, showing interest or enthusiasm means a lot to parents. Certainly such photo documentation will give every parent a pleasant boost during work. Thanks to such detailed information, they can easily follow up with their child on an activity or a discussed topic. At the same time, such positivity, allows parents to have better relationships with teachers and prefer to share their enthusiasm. This is very important and necessary feedback for the preschool. Everything functions much better on an elementary interpersonal level.
The bulletin board within the application means, above all, maximum clarity and availability of information. Every user of the app, whenever they need, has an overview of any events that concern them. Parents have all their child's information and their class available in one place. Teachers have an overview of what is happening in their classrooms and principals have an overview of what is happening in all classes of their preschool. In addition, parents are alerted to any newly disclosed information.
The calculation of fees and meals can often be a complex administrative matter. Since it always depends on individual attendance, the type of attendance programme of each child and any apologies from parents, it is therefore necessary to include all these facts in the calculation. In Twigsee, the calculation takes place completely automatically based on the real attendance of children and apologies sent by parents. Moreover, there is no need for information to be passed between classroom teachers or management, as everything is listed in the system. The calculation of fees and meals is clearly linked to the attendance of each child and the individual resulting cost is calculated automatically.
The interactive class book is created on the basis of the SEVT standard and framework educational programme (FEP). The aim is to simplify the day-to-day work of teachers with regard to the needs of the preschool and reporting. The preschool has access to the classroom both from the administrative interface on a computer and directly from the mobile application. The teacher therefore has the possibility to record any class information from a device that is more accessible at the time. A trip entry can simply be directly from out in the field using a mobile phone.
Recording attendance directly from the phone is absolutely crucial for preschools in terms of saving time. Teachers can mark a child present at the preschool with one click. If there are more teachers in the classroom, everyone can immediately see that the child is already registered. There is no duplication of information and all teachers have an overview of the number of children present and excused. Attendance can also be edited in the administrative interface from a computer, which also serves as a basis for automatic calculation of preschool and meal fees.
Twigsee is an app that manages 80% of school operations in one place. Thanks to the mobile app, it simultaneously connects schools with parents. It also very conveniently shows parents the work of the school and supports cooperation between parents and the school with regard to their child’s development.
Our goal is to alleviate the administrative duties of schools as much as possible. Documents which need to be signed (e.g., doctor’s notes) can be uploaded into the system as a PDF and saved in Twigsee. The entire application process can therefore be completed online.
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.
Yes, the app is available for iOS, Android and Huawei. What’s more, it’s available in 7 language versions.
The app is available in the following languages: English, Czech, Slovak, and French. The app’s language will correspond to the language set in the mobile app.
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.Dominika Hájková
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 50 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 extremely happy and are ordering Twigsee for our other site in Průhonice.Jan Vodrážka
Twigsee won us over from the moment we started using it. It allows us to manage everything in our school 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 much appreciate the wonderful support from the Twigsee team who are always prepared to handle our questions and requests. In short, I can wholeheartedly recommend Twigsee without hesitation.Lucie England
We’ve finally canceled signature forms for all applications and online photo galleries, and parents no longer forget about school activities. Parents know what is happening at school and are much happier and at ease. We’ve stopped needing to constantly explain and repeat the same things. Thank you.Michaela Možiešíková
Twigsee is a great and innovative app for me as the school’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 are always happy to answer all of my questions about the app and its functions whenever I need 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 school, teachers, and administration. I strongly recommend the app for all administrators and parents!Tereza Dvořáková
Twigsee is a wonderful app that has made communication between the school and parents faster, more convenient, and more efficient since we began using it at the beginning of the school year. Also, it unbelievably simplifies the work of employees. Everyone, including the parents, is happy with the app.Zuzana Černá
We have been using the Twigsee app in our Fox Nursery and Day Nursery for over a year now. We use the app to communicate important information to parents. We share photos of the children's daily activities, and use surveys, which parents respond to 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 nursery/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 nurseries and kindergartens and is quick and easy for teachers, nannies and parents to use. With the Twigsee app, we are simply moving with the times.Linda Janichová
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 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.Helena Zdrubecká
Great Customer Support! Any problem gets immediate attention, and also the sales representatives are very willing to help.Michelle Specht
Twigsee caught our attention right 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 besides accounting. Forest preschool , Pohádky z.s., ZvoleZuzana Vacíková
