Track attendance quickly, accurately, and securely with your mobile device.

KinderSmart is a mobile app for iPhone and Android devices that revolutionizes attendance tracking for childcare providers. Using QR codes—the same technology that powers e-tickets and airline boarding passes—parents can check their children in and out of care in seconds.

A Full-Featured, Pocket-Sized Solution

With KinderSmart, facilities can automate time-consuming processes, improve engagement with the families they serve, and secure sensitive data. The app integrates with KinderConnect, Controltec’s web-based provider portal, for comprehensive, efficient childcare management.

3-Step Check-in and Check-out

KinderSmart makes checking children in and out of care fast and easy, without sacrificing security or recordkeeping detail. The process is as simple as pen-and-paper attendance tracking but provides much greater flexibility.

Intuitive and Easy to Use

Parents download KinderSmart on their iPhone or Android devices and register within the system. Once their provider has approved registration, parents can use their phones to check their children in and out of care.

Detailed Attendance History

As soon as check-in or check-out is complete, KinderSmart instantly logs the time, type, and location of the transaction in an electronic timestamp. The system also captures the parent or guardian’s name and signature, along with any optional notes about the transaction.

KinderConnect Integration

All information collected in KinderSmart is connected to the provider’s database in KinderConnect, Controltec’s cloud-based backend system for childcare providers. Numerous state and local government agencies rely on KinderConnect for comprehensive, easy, and secure childcare program management.

The Leading Attendance App for Childcare Providers

A simple, 3-step check-in and check-out solution

In KinderSmart, checking children in and out of care closely mimics the familiar process of pen-and-paper attendance tracking—without the hassle and room for error. A parent simply scans a QR code, pulling up a list of children assigned to them, then marks each child as checked-in, checked-out, or absent. The record is signed and submitted by the parent, and confirmed by KinderConnect.

Automatic Timestamping and Record Keeping

KinderSmart tracks the time and location of each check-in and check-out, automatically creating a detailed log of activity that can be used for attendance, licensing and general childcare operational purposes.
