Blossom Educational - Software update: Go paperless at your nursery

Dear Blossomers,

You said, we listened. Our latest software update 9.4.0 allows users to upload photos and videos. You can make your parents’ day by sending a video of their little one learning and having fun while at your nursery!

On top of that, we’re helping you to upload your shelves (or rooms) of paperwork to the software. You’ll have easy access to and safe keeping of files – while clearing out a lot of space! Enjoy!

Send parents videos

If a picture is ‘worth a 1000 words’ that means a video is worth a lot more, right? Blossom users can now upload photos and videos to be sent to parents via diary updates. Nurseries can upload videos under “observations’ as well to keep detailed records of a child’s development.

Bonus: We have installed a background uploader meaning you don’t have to wait for videos to be 100% uploaded. Simply select the video you want, hit ‘submit’ and get back to the children. We’ll take care of the rest.
