New Features from Tadpoles!

You asked, and we listened—Tadpoles will be adding new features, making it even easier for parents to connect with their childcare provider or preschool.

Before the end of the year, Tadpoles will be making exciting changes to better serve parents’ needs. Parents currently connected with their childcare providers or preschool using the “Childcare by Tadpoles” or “Preschool by Tadpoles” app will now have the option to receive updates directly to their email. Now, you can see the latest news through both the app and your email! In addition, parents will be able to view videos of their children from any common web browser and as always, will continue to have access to information on our website.

Coming Soon: Tadpoles for Android
Android users, get excited. Tadpoles will be available for Android devices before the end of the year! We’ll keep you updated on an exact launch date, but be ready to take a trip to the marketplace and get what you’ve been waiting for! Until the release, you’ll be able to receive updates through your email client, which is also possible with blackberry and windows mobile devices.

Tadpoles Goes Social
Soon enough, you’ll be able to integrate photos from your Tadpoles app directly to your Facebook albums, making sharing photos with friends easy and exciting. Since Tad is such a social creature, don’t forget to friend him on Facebook and follow him on twitter.

We’re excited to be able to provide these new features to make your Tadpoles experience as rewarding as possible. If you have any comments or other suggestions, let us know!


  1. I go the android market but only has the parent version. Will the childcare version ever be on android?

  2. As an update on this question we don't have any current plans for releasing an Android version for providers. One of the features we love is the ability to quickly capture a photo by swiping over from the child roster. Doing that reliably on Android has proven a bit difficult.
    Between the iPod touch, iPad and iPhone there are really good options from a price and feature perspective. We'd love to hear your thoughts on having the right device.
