Kindy Now

KindyNow is a last minute child care booking engine and works by capturing your child care bookings on to a mobile based application, empowering you to make last minute bookings or notify the centre
of your absence. Eclipse Early Learning Centres uses this App across all our Centres.

The App allows you to:

  • Login with your existing phone number which you’ve already registered with the center, no complex usernames/passwords to remember
  • Easily see your bookings for the week ahead
  • Quickly notify us if your child can’t attend
  • Receive reminders in the morning if your child is booked with us that day
  • Allows you to see available openings at our centre if other parents have cancelled
  • Be notified about new openings the moment they happen
  • KindyNow works with multiple kids at our centre

Play does not need to involve expensive toys, games or props. Often the best type of play is unstructured, spontaneous and fun. However, if you are looking for inspiration there are many websites, blogs and Facebook pages out there to provide you with ideas.
