The mental load of parenting is vast and relentless.
Lifemin alerts you to upcoming admin and automatically updates your calendar with important dates and reminders from your schools, to help you stay on top of it all, in one place.
Automatic updates to your calendar with dates and to-do's from school communications - no more staying on top of emails and newsletters or tedious manual calendar entries. Lifemin does it for you!
Intelligent, well-timed reminders for to-do's requiring prep and planning - things like costumes, booking camps or kit for Sports Day. No more last minute scrambling
There are two flavours of Lifemin - Lifemin School Edition, and Lifemin Parents Edition BETA.
Lifemin for Schools is for a handful of schools on our systems. For these schools, we read all the newsletters and communications from your school and automatically update your calendar with dates and deadlines and set helpful reminders. Look up your school to see if we're serving it yet.
(Note: Lifemin is by parents for parents - it is not a service offered to or by schools. School information comes via publicly available newsletters and via parents.)
Enter the name of your school below along with your email address; if we don't serve your school yet, we'll add you to our mailing list and notify you once we do!
Lifemin for Parents is for any parent with children at any schools.
Any parent can sign up and set up their email inbox to automatically forward emails from their school(s) and extracurricular providers for Lifemin to read and action in their calendar - automatically entering dates, deadlines and to-do's. You can schedule time with Lifemin to help set this up, if you need.
Gmail users have the fabulously easy option to enable this with one click.

“As a busy mum, I have come to rely on my Lifemin updates and reminders. It just cuts through so many of the overwhelming emails we receive, telling me what I need to know and when - I didn't realise how much I needed it, but now I couldn't go back.
- Thomas's Clapham parent
“I really LOVE the calendar updates and reminders. It's such a lifesaver and saving so much time.

Lifemin = Life + Admin
It's all the stuff that keeps you from exercising, reading a book, or having 'me time' when you have free time, when you're lucky enough to have it. It's booking appointments, thinking ahead to
book flights before they get outrageously expensive, entering school term dates into your calendar - and oh, a reminder that you need to take a costume for your child to school.
Running a household, raising a kid, being an adult...it can be just like work, so let's treat it as such. Think of Lifemin as a personal assistant for you and your family.
We'll help you stay on top of all the important dates and to-do's related to your child - from school term dates to reminders to sort childcare for school breaks - with helpful tips and guides about admin-heavy tasks like finding and booking Activities, Clubs and Camps; Family Travel; and more.
When you sign up for Lifemin, you'll get immediate access to your school and class calendars, which are updated as new communications get sent out by your school. As newsletters tend to be sent on a Thursday or Friday, the vast majority of updates are pushed through on Friday and Saturday. On Sunday morning, you've got a full view of what's ahead for the week in your calendar and inbox.
That's how much time over the course of a year that the average family is estimated to spend on child-related admin, according to a survey of 1,000 parents.
One of the flashpoints that inspired Lifemin was the annual ritual of entering kids' school calendars into a personal calendar. With many families undoubtedly having to do the same thing, at scale this is massively inefficient. Similarly, there are certain tasks that all parents are likely to be doing at the same time: researching activities, ordering uniforms or family travel planning.
Lifemin leverages technology to surface and streamline kid-related admin, to make things easier and simpler for parents.
