Helping You Achieve Your Goals

Communicating with Head Start Families Has Never Been Easier

Head Start Families prefer text messaging. Learning Genie enables Head Start teachers or staff to communicate with individual families or a group of families in a two-way messaging format.

Removing Language Barriers

Head Start agencies are doing their best to hire translators for families who speak limited English. However, translators can be expensive or not readily available. Learning Genie’s Auto Translated Chat solves this problem. You can now send and receive messages in 104 different languages.

Improving Your Event Participation Rates

Head Start Agencies are spending precious time and resources organizing family events, but the message isn’t always getting home. Learning Genie can send digital flyers to attract families and can also add a reminder, which automatically syncs to their phone’s calendar. When used together, participation rates improve.

Driving School Readiness

Language literacy is the number one indicator when it comes to school readiness. Learning Genie provides the books read in classrooms virtually to families. We were featured in the NHSA 2017 Innovation Summit in Salt Lake City. Our goal is to have every family read up to 300 books a year to their child!

Easily Track In-Kind Reports

Tracking in-kind hours used to be a pain: we make it easier. Automatically track the hours your families are spending working toward their individualized goals with ease and real time approval.

Managing your Family’s Privacy 

We help teachers by reminding them which families allow their children’s photos to be shared according to the agency’s privacy policy. Administrators also have an approval queue to monitor the messages their teachers are sending to families.
