Child Care Council of Kentucky Releases Kids Matter App(August 24, 2011)
(PRWEB) August 24, 2011
On Wednesday, August 24, 2011, the Child Care Council of Kentucky released an innovative Android and iPhone app named Kids Matter®, the first of its kind in the state of Kentucky. Among other things, the app allows parents to search for quality child care and access resources to help pay for child care.
With the Child Care Council of Kentucky's app, families now can easily search for quality child care with their Android or iPhone. The database of regulated child care facilities is searchable based on various criteria (i.e. city, star rating, age of child). Using Kids Matter®, families can also search for an area Child Care Eligibility Specialist in order to learn more about paying for the high cost of child care.
The new iPhone and Droid app is cutting edge technology, said Bradley Stevenson, Executive Director of the Child Care Council of Kentucky. And we are excited to provide parents with a new way to find quality child care, access resources to potentially pay for child care and links to many other resources. What a great resource for parents to have literally at their fingertips.
The Kids Matter® app also includes a checklist of questions, touching on health and safety issues, allowing families to make informed inquiries prior to making a decision about a facility. The app also includes links to other local and national resources, an Ask The Expert feature, and information on provider types in Kentucky and much more.
The groundbreaking Kids Matter® app may be obtained at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/kids-matter/id429951980?mt=8&ls=1 and https://market.android.com/details?id=com.trifectaky.cccky.kidsmatter&feature=search_result. The Android version is compatible with Android 1.6 and up, while the iPhone version is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, requiring iOS 3.1 or later. The app was built by Trifecta in Lexington, KY.
