Working in partnership with our nurseries since 2004

A powerful platform for professional educator

Built in collaboration with early years experts, our online learning journal tool is quick to set up and easy to customise.

Why practitioners love iConnect

Avoid rushed conversations with parents at the end of the day, centralise your processes and save hours of admin time –
so you can spend more time with the children.

Sustainable

Reduce your carbon footprint and stop
spending so much on ink, paper and
printing. iConnect can be accessed via  the web or as an android/iOS app so you can leave your folders on the shelf,
ditch your post-it notes and get things
done quickly and paper free.

Accessible

Promote staff well-being and take
a more inclusive approach. With
enhanced accessibility options for
dyslexic users, everyone can enjoy the
app. Improve accessibility by changing
the colour of free text fields, and
amending the line height of the text..

Secure

Safeguard your staff and child data
with robust, industry-leading security.
Ensure data can only be accessed by
those with a professional need with
role-based permissions. Add extra
layers of security with out-of-hours
approvals from your safeguarding
officer.

and parent partnerships with iConnect…
