Keeping the parents posted digitally
Published 06/05/14



COMMUNICATION is always one of the things that parents rate most highly about a nursery, as it is so important to know what your child is doing during the day and how they are progressing.

The Old Station Nursery in Henley is staying ahead of the game by rolling out a new digital communication tool for their nursery parents this month. EY Log is an electronic “learning journey” or progress diary, which staff will share with parents daily.

The software is stored on tablets, which staff will use in each of the rooms within the nursery, allowing them to take photographs and videos of the children and to record their progress against the various goals within the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Whenever an observation is made, the child’s parent will receive a notification by email telling them that they can log on and have a look from their own tablet, phone or pc. There will also be “daily diary” posts, so parents can see what their child has eaten and how long he or she has slept, which might help them to plan the evening or any other activities after nursery.

At the end of the child’s time at nursery, they will be given a CD with the whole electronic record on, which they can keep for posterity or share with friends and family. Julie Crake, manager of The Old Station Nursery, says: “We are really excited to be embracing this new software. We are always looking for ways to improve our communication with parents, as we understand how important it is to them.


“We hope that this new software will make it easier for us to share the important moments at nursery with them and to give them confidence about how we use the observations to track every child’s progress and to ensure they are fully challenged.”
