iConnect is the award-winning online learning journal software for practitioners. It enables staff to save hours each week and reduces the need to spend time away from their key children.

Many childcare professionals struggle under the increasing pressure to complete mountains of paperwork to satisfy Ofsted. But it doesn’t have to be such a laborious process.

The introduction of iConnect on tablets in a setting can save hours of time, and allow practitioners to focus on their passion; nurturing and developing the children in their care.

Observations can be done instantly on tablets and all of the information is stored safely, ready to access again when needed for assessments and checks. These observations can be linked to the EYFS, Curriculum for Excellence, Pre Birth to Three and many other frameworks.

Daily activities like sleep, meals and nappies are recorded quickly and easily and online learning journeys can be sent straight out to parents and carers via ParentZone.

But it’s not just for learning journals, key workers can carry out all of their admin tasks; from assessments to planning and next steps. iConnect is used by thousands of nurseries across the UK and there are over 700,000 observations logged each month.


ParentZone helps providers to work in partnership with parents, which is a key Ofsted requirement.

ParentZone is a smartphone app for parents and a fantastic tool for nursery practitioners to communicate with parents and encourage them to contribute towards their child’s learning. Parents will never miss a moment of their child’s development again with regular notifications of their child’s activities and achievements.

In an ideal world, every parent and practitioner would have time to have a chat about their children each day at pick up time, but as you know, this is not always possible. Through ParentZone, busy parents can check in and view their child’s daily activities and wow moments when it is most convenient for them.

Parents are encouraged to comment on observations posted to their child’s learning journey so they can directly communicate with the nursery. They can even upload their own observations, contributing to their child’s learning journey and strengthening their bond with the staff and setting.
