This session is brought to you in partnership with Kindly.
Presented by Jasmine Taylor, President & CEO – Kindly.
In the midst of a pandemic, agencies have spent the past year pivoting to online learning; leaving many administrators wondering what family engagement actually looks like at home. The good news is, with your assistance, parents have been given tools, guidance and support to help with their little one’s continued development during this unprecedented time. But how do you capture this engagement (and the tons of in-kind they’ve generated in the process)? One agency we spoke with asks parents to take photos of their reading logs then text them to staff to process and manage. Text messages from hundreds of families each week have to pass through the hands of multiple staff members, get translated into emails then input into their system to be calculated manually. Thankfully, there’s a better way! FINALLY, there is an in-kind management software combined with child development and family engagement in ONE POWERFUL system!
Kindly is much more than just an accounting software. This one-of-a-kind system, was created by education experts, who faced the challenges of low staff and family engagement, inaccurate, untimely reporting and the headache of manual processing. They also saw an opportunity to help parents become even more active in their babies’ development. Our platform creates a space where parents, staff and agency leaders can work together virtually, in the Kindly Hub, to improve child development outcomes in a fast and easy way!
The Las Vegas agency that piloted this new system went from generating $236,000 annually to $1M in their first year of using the Kindly system. They quadrupled their in-kind and their family engagement. Thanks to this new innovative software, in-kind is now a paperless process that you can track and monitor globally in real time.
– A proven system designed to optimize child development, designed according to each child’s individualized learning plan
– A library of developmentally appropriate activities for parents to choose from based on the Early Learning Outcomes Framework (ELOF)
– An easy-to-use parent portal where families can track and submit their activities online, from any device, including phones, tablets or computers
– Agency dashboards to monitor progress with reports for administrators, center directors, key staff and teachers
– Robust reporting features with templates for weekly, monthly and annual reports
– Tools for staff training and technical assistance regarding family engagement and in-kind education
– An in-kind calculator to help you set an agency goal that each family can be a part of
Kindly is quickly becoming the go-to technology for the Head Start sector. Join us for this Solutions Webinar to learn how you can make it easy for parents and volunteers to engage and simple for staff to monitor their growth.
I have been to management workshops, not leadership training. This has totally changed my perspective and encouraged me to propel forward in developing my skills.
I am honored and humbled to be a recipient of the Region 9 Head Start Association’s Legacy Scholarship. The scholarship helped me get one step closer to achieving my goal of becoming a Head Start Director.
I took part in The disproportionate impact of COVID 19, and how to provide “real” support for black/brown children and families and I just want to say this was an amazing webinar. I hope we can look forward to further conversation on this topic.
Thank you so much for making events like this! I really enjoyed and learned so much teaching strategies to implement STEM in the classroom.
The HR Network was an excellent opportunity to network and learn the best practices from other HR professionals within Head Start programs. You will be amazed by the level of talent and experience of the participants.
The Summer Camp training was powerful and inspiring! Each presenter was very engaging, it’s hard to even pick a favorite session!
The Leadership Challenge training was very relevant to my work as a Head Start leader! Great facilitation; stayed with the program yet allowed time for individual and small group reflections.
