Developed by ParentZone, this is a new online app that has been introduced at our nursery in Hampton Hargate to allow a greater and easier two-way flow of communication between parents and nursery staff.
This cutting edge technology replaces the traditional paper-based method of recording each child’s day and parents can see a timeline of activities by securely logging in and viewing photos, videos and observations made by each child’s key person, as well as meals, sleep times and nappy changes.
What makes the app unique is that parents can be involved in current time with their own child’s assessment, add comments and other important information that they would like nursery to be aware of.
Lisa Snell, Busy Bees Early Years Director, comments: “Many parents lead busy lifestyles and using the ParentZone app on the go throughout their day will keep them in touch with their child’s daily activities. We believe this will enhance the communication between our staff and parents whenever we can to further benefit a child’s learning journey, and the ParentZone system, delivers just that.
“The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum means that our nursery staff carry out regular observations of every child, ensuring that their learning and development incorporates their interests and needs as well as recording special moments in their development. The evidence collected from these observations is analysed regularly to make assessments of the children’s learning and development.
“With ParentZone now in place it will make our assessments even more in-depth and with the opportunity for parent comments, too – we are confident that our children’s learning is improving for the better.”
Vicky W, one of our parents, comments: “Although the ParentZone system has only been in place a few months, we already much prefer this new online way of tracking our child’s progress.
“The log-in is simple and we can accurately see what he has been up to that day, which is reassuring and immediately makes me feel happy that Rayon is having fun whilst learning.”
