HiMama & Guiding Hands Academy
"Don't miss a moment. Never lose a memory."
HiMama is a simple tool, allowing our teachers to share reports with you about your child. Daily updates regarding eating schedules, health, activities, learning and development are sent to your email or smartphone keeping you connected and informed. Teacher captured photos and memories are securely shared, so not a moment is missed. Among the advantages, you will receive recaps of your child's day, highlighting events of interest and what they have learned. With this knowledge the learning process can be continued at home.
