Keeping A Record of Our Play at Piccolini

At Piccolino Havelock North we want to build great connections with our kindergarten and daycare community, we believe that we are stronger when we work together to make sure that our childcare pupils feel seen and heard. Part of this is appreciating the time your child spends on their projects at kindy. It’s hard some days to do that drop-off, and then drive away thinking that you might miss something really special in your childs’ day. Luckily we have a great solution for this problem that everyone can use.

Over The Seas and Far Away

Now, more than ever, it’s important to make that extra effort to include whanau and friends that can’t be in our everyday lives in physical ways. We want to be able to share the cool things your tamariki are experiencing and producing at kindergarten with your extended family who lives overseas – or elsewhere in New Zealand. We all love to see those special art pieces on the wall or the fridge at home, and we encourage your little ones to keep a paper portfolio at our kindy and childcare centre. This is so great to pull out in the future, to help revisit this magical time in your child’s life.

Storypark Digital Portfolio

However, there is an app for everything these days! At Piccolino Kindergarten and Childcare Havelock North we have a very cool one that we like to use. Storypark is a way we can share your childs’ moments with you when you need to be at work, study, or just taking a well-earned break. It’s also a way to involve grandparents and other family members that are eager to watch your tamariki as they progress through preschool. The app is used to relay information about what’s up ahead at daycare, to see videos of what your little one has been learning and experiencing, and it’s a great way to make a digital record of artwork and other creative projects without cluttering up your storage cupboards at home.

Modern and Safe

Storypark is a safe app that uses password protection and encryption to ensure that you are the only one with access to your child’s pictures and videos – unless you share it yourself. The educators at Piccolino Kindergarten & Childcare Havelock North also use the Storypark app to keep learning standards high, it has a great feedback loop for parents too, so you can let us know what you think about specific things really easily. It’s a great way for you to see what we are planning, and to get involved as much as you want to be.

Stay up to date and share those special moments you don’t want to miss. Use the Storypark app today to stay in touch with your whanau at Piccolino Kindy and Childcare in Havelock North.
