What is the Family App?

The Family App is an iOS or Android app that connects parents with your childcare
service. Engage parents in their child’s learning journey with photos, videos and
curriculum-linked activities. Enjoy instant communication when you need it. Share
real-time updates like meals and sleep records and collect digital signatures for
those all-important documents.

Capture and Share Special Moments

Don’t tell parents how happy their kids are – show them with photo and video updates!

  • Safe, secure and private media sharing
  • Capture everyday activities and special moments
  • Less photo printing means less costs

Let parents see the nurturing environment you have created for their children and all the hard work you do every day.

“We have received great feedback from our parents, and they are delighted with the app. They love receiving real-time updates."

Empowering thousands of childcare
providers across Ireland

We have used Little Vista in our services for several years. With 5 locations in North Dublin, it has helped massively reduce paperwork and effectively manage occupancy planning and improve parent communications. We have found it to be an excellent tool and can’t recommend it enough.

We have been using Little Vista for 12 months now. I can 100% recommend it without hesitation. We have a large service and the manager platform allows me to keep track of all children and their families and the interactions that occur between parents and the early year professionals.

It was a fantastic way for Educators to communicate with parents as we had to reduce all face to face contact. We quickly realised the benefits of Little Vista in communication, record keeping and attendance tracking. We have since started using it in 2 other centres.

We have been using Little Vista since July 2019 and it has been a huge success in our service. Parents and staff both love it; it has saved on paper usage in the place and has speeded up doing paperwork; parents and staff can communicate between themselves much easier.

Little Vista has made such a difference to our service. We went from a small service to a medium-sized business in a short space of time and Little Vista has made it much easier for us with attendance records, recording meals, sleep, and toilet activities.

We started using Little Vista in 2020 and find it brilliant. The Little Vista system has significantly reduced the time we were spending on our administration. You can have a report of a child’s attendance in a matter of a few clicks.
