Solutions Webinar – How to Increase & Monitor Family Engagement (and In-Kind) While We’re Virtual

April 28, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


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.

Top Features:

– 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.
