Point, click and share using any phone or tablet.

With just a phone or a tablet and iCare, teachers can do a lot of wonderful things:

  • Photos can speak a great deal for your center and parents will surely love to share them. It is a great way to promote your center.

  • And, they are a great way to build loyalty with the parents.

Create memories you will cherish forever!
