Kinderpedia is the end-to-end solution for my kindergarten. It helps me to efficiently manage communication with parents, our teaching staff, all our educational resources, invoices and several other administrative documents.
Since I work online, I can access all our information wherever I want. I use the app either from my laptop, or my mobile devices like a tablet or a phone.
Education with love is education with confidence. Using Kinderpedia, we managed to install a transparent and healthy communication climate!
Once the child starts kindergarten, parents feel the need to constantly be informed about every detail in their child’s day-to-day activities, their experiences, their appetite, and much more. This need of parents is extremely strong, because the separation occurs for a significant part of the day.
When we discovered Kinderpedia, here, at Butterfly, we managed to respond to this communication need transparently, in real time. Kinderpedia is a valuable tool for us and we use it every day so that managers and teachers stay in touch with parents.
We launched the Butterfly project in the spring of 2006 with the desire to offer high quality education both to pre-school and gymnasium levels. We started out with a kindergarten, but the growth rate was intense, and from 2008 until 2012 we opened a total of five Butterfly headquarters, one of the fastest growing ascendants in the educational field. Butterfly was accredited for preschool in 2012 and has three locations where we are teaching children between 1 year and 8 months and 6 years. Currently we have 60 employees and collaborating teachers and about 250 enrolled children.
We have become a brand strongly promoted by a team that manages ever-increasing educational projects, but today Butterfly is a special place because we have not forgotten the values from which we started and we have never dropped the quality standard which we have imposed on ourselves: we offer quality education, with love.
Leaders in, and strong advocates for quality early childhood education for every child.
Our focus in on the holistic development of the child – A balanced and all rounded approach encompassing intellectual, physical, emotional and social development, thereby anchoring the learning for application to real life and not just learning for the sake of learning.
Our reality based Montessori approach facilitates the development of learning habits and life skills that will sustain through the various stages of life.
We’re a Montessori kindergarten, we offer educational programs for children starting 1 year until 6 years of age; so for the first lane of development. We have right now three 3 to 6 Montessori classrooms and three 1 to 3 Montessori classrooms. We work with over 13 teachers 7 Montessori educators. Our programs right now serve over 90 students.
During conferences across the country, parents and teachers ask me how they can maintain a closer relationship between the family and nursery. I strongly recommend Kinderpedia, an online application on my phone, in real time, where I can receive information from my child's teacher about her day-to-day education, about her well-being, school progress,
I can see pictures, check whether she has been eating, sleeping well etc.
Teachers can organize themselves better and with that have more time for the children, parents are permanently informed, and, at the end of the year, they have a story of images and ideas about the child's progress and what a year in kindergarten meant for them.

I recently found out about the Kinderpedia app and I like it a lot. We will use this for our team. I believe that it is saving a lot of time - for the kids, essentially. Yeah, we will definitely try this, because we are living in the 21st century and we wish to go forward.
Beautiful Minds Educational Center aims to create a child friendly environment that focuses on developing imagination through creative activities and promoting a healthy lifestyle. The Kindergarten currently has 56 children enrolled.
I have always been a solution-oriented person that aimed for continuous improvement of the kindergarten processes. At the recommendation of a parent, I discovered Kinderpedia, an online platform with dedicated mobile application for educators and managers, as well as for parents, which gave me the means to streamline both the planning, kindergarten management and communication with parents.
Using Kinderpedia, I have all our resources in one place, I can access them from anywhere and I am always up to date with everything that happens in the kindergarten. My everyday work is handled more effectively and I have the opportunity to focus on those aspects that bring value to our work and strengthen our image and reputation in front of parents and on the market. Educators also work with more ease because most of their routine activities that used to consume time and energy are now systematized in the platform - attendance, timetable, daily menu, events, daily report to parents etc. Facilitating their work, Kinderpedia allows them to channel their enthusiasm to education, which is, in fact, our mission.
A great advantage from using Kinderpedia has been seen shortly after implementation in the relationship with parents. By giving them access to information about the child through a simple and friendly interface, we have relieved our parents of the worries and permanent questions about the well-being of the little ones over the day. Because the information is so clear and intuitive, it has considerably diminished discussions with educators on routine issues. After implementing Kinderpedia, I managed to quit the Facebook and WhatsApp groups, and now we are enjoying transparent communication with parents and a fluid internal organization. Last but not least, the orientation towards the educational act, the efficient organization and the trust of our parents allowed us to increase our kindergarten’s capacity by 51% over the past 5 months.
I believe that quality education should not be an option but a certainty. That's why I recommend Kinderpedia to all kindergartens looking for new ways of improving their activity and improving their results.
We realized that all the update sheets we gave parents about the daily activity of the children were ending up somewhere in the trash or forgotten in the car. In addition to daily forms, we also used to communicate by WhatsApp and e-mail. The information was not centralized, and I, as a manager, could not track it. I soon understood that it would be easier for our information to be based on an electronic solution, safely stored in the cloud and fitted on any portable device, to be available in real time; both to the parent and to the kindergarten staff, at any time.
For more than two years, since we use Kinderpedia, educators fill in the information with ease and pleasure, because the interface allows them to add data for the whole group at the same time instead of having to talk to only 2 or 3 parents by phone. Equally, the time saved has been allocated to educational activities and which allowed us to further improved the quality of our services.
From an administrative point of view, Kinderpedia is an essential tool because it gives me clear evidence of the attendance, the academic evolution of the children, and the payments status. From a relational perspective, real-time communication has brought considerable benefits in increasing the quality of services offered. With Kinderpedia, parents often access daily menus, daily reports, notifications, and events. They are now better informed and are able to carry out their day-to-day activities without doubt about the well being of their children. They no longer have to wait until the end of the day for a summary of the activity of the kids, because they get notifications on the app whenever the teacher uploads something. They also do not have to scramble for information on mail, WhatsApp or groups on social channels, because everything they need to know is rigorously organized in one place and is available to them at any time, at their fingertips.
I strongly recommend Kinderpedia to any kindergarten or school that wants to create a strong name, synonymous with quality and innovation in education.
We have discovered Kinderpedia on a conference and consider it a valuable resource for both our parents and our teaching staff.
The Kinderpedia modules most frequently used by parents are the daily reports and multimedia. These, along with the daily schedule and observations provided by educators on various activities, allow them to stay connected with their children even during the day, access information easily and respond promptly when they are asked. Educators simplify their activity with the nutrition and events modules and I, as a manager, easily use the billing and financial management function as well as personalized reports. Our kindergarten enjoys trust and prestige, educators work more efficiently, and I always have an overview of what's going on in the kindergarten, nursery and afterschool, over the day.
I think that, in the relationship with children and parents, communication is the most important. We are convinced that the responsibility for a good and balanced education lies both with the school and the family. Lack of communication from one direction or another will negatively affect the evolution of children. Experience has shown that both school results and behaviour become better when the family collaborates directly with classroom teachers, receives and conveys information and suggestions, is actively involved in the academic and social development of the child.
