Benefits of Private Social Networks at Child Care Centers

Private social networks, or "clouds" as we call them, have a number of benefits for all types of organizations including:

Open communication improves staff and family communication. Historically, child care centers have relied on email, flyers, and meetings to communicate, but these have proven insufficient. CloudJabber helps staff members share ideas for activities, collaborate on lesson plans, and communicate directly with parents. CloudJabber also helps parents stay up to date on the latest information about center events and activities. 

Increased collaboration leads to increased productivity. CloudJabber enables staff members to collaborate more effectively and share information more fluidly. With increased access to their colleagues, staff members are saving valuable time by reducing the time it takes to find information and communicate. With the extra time, staff members can focus on other things, making them more productive overall.

Team building builds center culture and engagement. CloudJabber enables ongoing relationship building by facilitating frequent communication amongst staff members and parents. According a recent survey, 83 percent of people indicated that they feel better connected with others because of social networks.* Fostering a strong community culture in your center, CloudJabber helps staff members and parents develop and maintain close connections with one another.

Online connections improve staff member engagement. Employee engagement is a top priority for child care centers because of high turnover and its impact on the bottom line. Staff members who demonstrate a high level of engagement are more productive and less likely to leave the company. By providing direct access and giving all staff members a platform to connect with each others, CloudJabber strengthens the connection staff members feel to their employers.
