Children’s Learning Captured
Children enrolled at Penguins School of Early Learning have the option of having their portfolio made available to parents and family online. This wonderful facility gives you access to your child’s world where teachers can share stories about your child’s day and the learning that is occuring. You can log in at a time and place that is convenient for you, over a coffee break at work or perhaps from the comfort of your home.
We are able to share things such as stories describing your child’s interests, emergence of their learning dispositions and participation at Penguins. We also upload photo’s and short video segments to both further support the learning happening or just to share a special moment. These uploads are an insight into your child’s world with us at Penguins and detail all the valuable learning that we recognise in their interactions. You have the opportunity to post your own stories and comments back to us, to provide feedback and to share with us your aspirations for your child. Together we will work in partnership to engage and extend your child.
Teachers also post information about wider centre events. If we’ve just had a trip to the library, a visit from the local firemen with their fire engine or even just a really great afternoon with the messy play, we know you’ll want to hear all about it as soon as possible. We also know that photos tell a thousand words and that these are a valued treasure to parents. All this will be made available to encourage you to feel connected and a part of your child’s day.
Share it with your family and friends
With families often working and living in different cities, or even different countries, it is easy to feel disconnected and that you don’t have the time to share all your child’s news. With your child’s online portfolio you are able to share your login details to who you would like to have access. In our experience, Grandparents are the ones who value this the most! It is wonderful to see so many able to send us their comments and to experience up to the minute news about their grandchildren’s world.
If you would like to see more detailed information about our online portfolios, please drop in to see us so we can explain further about how secure, user-friendly and convenient it is.
