I think the camera in my child's classroom should be adjusted. Who should I contact?

WatchMeGrow works closely with centers to optimize camera placement at the time of installation. We strive to maximize viewing, mitigate variances in natural and artificial lighting, and avoid showing sensitive areas like restrooms and changing tables.

If you have a request or suggestion regarding camera placement, please contact your center director. She or he will review your request and advise WatchMeGrow to follow up as appropriate.

My camera isn't working. What should I do?

There may be a technical issue preventing your camera from working correctly. Please try your camera again. If it still isn't working, please contact our Customer Support team at or 1-800-483-5597.

My account has been temporarily suspended. What should I do?

For security reasons, our system will prevent anyone from logging into your account for approximately 15 minutes when it detects too many invalid login attempts. This is most commonly caused by the first character of your username being the incorrect case (e.g. 'Mickey' instead of 'mickey'). If you are still experiencing issues, please contact our Customer Support team at or 1-800-483-5597.

Why has my account been disabled?
