Customized Experience

Every care provider is different, and we recognize that. We’re not a one-size-fits-all solution because you aren’t a one size fits all provider.

Quick and Easy

easy entry for daycare moments

In just 15 seconds, a teacher can post a photo to an entire classroom. All the while, directors and owners can keep their finger on the pulse of what’s happening throughout their center (or centers). You take the time to document these important Moments, and tend.ly organizes and shares them for you!

Updates on Any Device

At the end of the day, families receive a beautiful email summarizing their child’s experience in your care. Teachers spend less time documenting and more time doing what they love: caring for children.

See Who’s Engaged

daycare family engagement and happiness

Understanding family engagement is key to building and maintaining trust. Sending Moments to families is critical, but how do you know if they’re truly engaging with the Moments you share? We put that information to work for you!

Immediate Feedback

With tend.ly, you can see it all in real time. Day by day, tend.ly tells you which families may need more attention and which families are loving everything you send.

Striking a Balance

Sharing the right kind of information is as important as sharing any information. With tend.ly, you can see if parents are engaging with what you send.

What Our Customers Say


Before tend.ly, we always did daily sheets on paper. Now we have all our information in one place, which makes it easy for parents to read, and it’s all in real time. Everything is simplified and easy to find, so there’s no need for one-off emails anymore.

Jen Sweet

tend.ly really helps our teachers with shift change. The teachers have all the information in one place, so if they haven’t spent the whole day with a child, they still know what their day has been like. And for teachers who might not see their kids’ parents at the end of the day, all the information is there in tend.ly.

Tiffany Cullers

When we first started using tend.ly, parents were overwhelmingly quick to say how much they loved it. As they started receiving the daily updates, pictures, and videos, they immediately felt more involved in what went on with their child during the day.
