Making childcare easier

with effective parental communication and simple features

foundations on All devices

foundations encourages parental communication. You can record daily activities for individuals like meals that have been eaten, nappy changes, any sleep time the children may of had – where and for how long and any medicine given.

The software has been designed so you can do this with ease and even upload photos straight from your device.

The foundations software works on a laptop, tablet or mobile device.

You can rest assured that the data stored for all of your children in foundations is safe.

Leave your hefty folders on the shelf! You can link parental and emergency contacts to individuals and access them at the touch of a button.

Parents have access to their own reliable parent app, ParentZone Lite, where they can see all of the daily activities and photos that you upload for their child instantly!

It is a great addition to the foundations software and really helps to strengthen parental communication between the parent and practitioner.

Our Vision

Back in 2004 our founder, Chris Reid, discovered that his interest in technology could help him to improve his own family’s early childcare experiences.

He had a vision, that through the use of technology he could help nurseries and childminders to cope with their complicated administration demands. This would allow parents to connect closely with the learning & development of their own children.

After spending years refining his original product, Connect Childcare, Chris has branched out and created foundations. An easy to use tool for Childminders and Pre-Schools.

Our Mission

Now we have been providing software to the childcare industry for 13 years, we understand the differences between each provider and what we can do to make your lives easier.
We listen to childminders, pre-schools and to the industry as a whole. By  understanding your challenges our team can work with you to develop practical solutions.
At foundations, we care about you, your children and the state of the industry.  The whole team is invested in making it that little bit easier to run a childcare provision today and in the future. We strive to make continual improvements to our software in order to make those little improvements to your working lives.
