About Illumine

Illumine is a digital administration and virtual learning platform for education providers. Features include operations management, enrollment, scheduling, parent-teacher communication, billing, real-time updates, digital marketing, invoicing, inquiries, bus tracking, and more.

Illumine enables teaching and learning to take place via a virtual classroom, meaning classes can continue when children and teachers are not on-site. Live sessions can be recorded for future viewing, enabling students to watch and learn at different times and learning paces. Additionally, teachers can upload activities and classes for parents to support children’s learning and development outside of the classroom.

With Illumine, parents and teachers can communicate and share information regarding childrens' progress and daily updates such as foods eaten, mood, incidents, bathroom visits, and nap times, providing parents with an overview of each day. Additionally, teachers can share messages and announcements via SMS, email, and app notifications, ensuring parents are updated on any school matters such as closures, scheduling, and events.

Illumine developmental assessments enable teachers to monitor each child’s progress and track milestones to share with parents. Additionally, teachers can create curricula and compile a lesson repository, so planning and assessment creation can be done ahead of time in accordance with child development goals.

After whatsapp if there is any other app I use daily, its Illumine. Its like a necessity for me as a parent of a 3 year old.

Pros

It has everything I could ask for. I am a working mom and I always felt anxious and guilty for not being there for my boy or not be involved or informed enough. Its like Illumine has crept into a parents mind and collected all the needs and built this app. I can see what activities my toddler son is doing, i get the notifications, I know when he ate, what he ate, when he slept at all times. I immediately get to know if he got hurt or had a quarrel. The UI is pretty good (Sorry for the PM in me speaking). I can drop notes to the teacher. I can very well communicate with the school admin and have all record of conversations. I see the reminders at all times. I see the lovely pictures of my boy with all his friends and it fills my heart with joy.

Cons

One tiny thing could be that if a school does not use a specific feature, may be that can be hidden so the parents don't see it. Although my son's school uses almost all features, they don't have the live streaming thing. So may be if that feature can be completely hidden.

Using Illumine in pre-school on a daily basis

Reviewed on 03/08/2020

Other than upgrading our kindergarten's standards by embracing technology and going paperless, Illumine has effectively smoothed our internal management as well as improved our organisation's system. Parents are also satisfied, if not impressed with the app and how we make use of it. This app will definitely be a bonus and an additional reason for parents to send their kids to our pre-school and child care.

Pros

The features available are perfectly catered for the needs of pre-schools as well as parents. It is really user-friendly, be it for the admins, teachers or parents. Even the more elderly teachers that are not familiar with the latest technology can use the application with ease!

Cons

There were some minor glitches or crashes in the app, but after notifying the support team, the problems were solved promptly!
