A child falls off the jungle gym and cries out in pain! As staff start to manage the situation, how do they know who to contact? Do they call the main office? Does someone have to thumb through the emergency card files?

In the digital age, shouldn’t this information be right at our fingertips? With the Eleyo iPad Attendance App, it is. Staff can easily pull up the child’s emergency contacts and start calling parents within minutes of an accident. Information from the parent portal and administrative database are synchronized with the iPad Attendance App. Everyone has access to the same emergency contact information.
