To enable you to keep updated with your child’s learning & development, our Centres use an E portfolio called Kept me.
As technology evolves kept me is a safe online platform that allows Educators to capture moments throughout your child’s day and save them directly to your child’s story file.
Each room throughout the Centres are equipped with an iPad to capture moments of play and development for each child. All parents using our Centres have access to the kept me free portfolio.
When your child commences care, you will be asked to supply email addresses for up to 2 people and once this information is put into our system both parties will automatically be sent an invitation to join the program.
Through this on-line portfolio you will be able to view images / videos / stories & have the ability to message your child’s Educator adding your comments or likes to your child’s learning journey.
Kept me also offers upgrades to families for a small cost per month, which then enables them to share moments with up to 4 extended family members, a great idea for family members living abroad or interstate.
Each day your child is in care the Educators will send you at least 1 notification about your child’s day , this may be an individual moment ( photo / video / story ) about your child or an overview of a special event that has captured the groups learning for the day ( daily event ). Either way it is a nice way to inform families of what has happened at care throughout the day and can prompt children when parents ask what have you done today .
Our baby rooms also can send baby's daily routine information at the end of each session so you can see your baby's food intake, bottles and sleep times, for those busy parents who do not have time to check our written information at the end of the day.
As you can see, this is an excellent way to stay informed with your child's activities throughout the day and provides further reassurance and peace of mind that your child is enjoying their learning journey at childcare.
