Kinderlime

Web and mobile app to Empower your Childcare.

About the project

Kinderlime is the ultimate timesaving software for before- and after-school care. It aims to simplify a teacher's life and help parents by empowering their childcare.

With Kinderlime apps, school staff receives the ability to automate and simplify tonnes of paperwork - all necessary documentation, payments, schedules, and contacts collected and processed in the intuitive dashboard. Secondly, parents receive detailed insights about how their children are doing at school, childcare, and camps.

Kinderlime removes every operational burden from the school so parents can do what matters - spending more time with their children. One-stop solution for daycare and after school to save time and money!
