Up to thirty children can be added to the App which supports its use by early childhood education professionals, child health and wellbeing professionals, and more.
Applications include the ability to add photos, videos and a personal journal as well as identify activities that have been achieved, and how that activity supports the child's development. It reveals how children are growing in terms of key developmental areas:
- social and emotional
- language and communication
- learning, thinking and problems olving
- movement and physical development
- connection to nature.
It is also popular with families, and in a professional setting, families can be invited to privately view their child's outdoor adventures and stay connected while their children are in care.
