Parent Stories are a great way to let your child's educator know about the learning which happens at home.
Parents and extended family members can create these. We often see Parent Stories being used to:
- Follow up on an educator's story.
- Share activities from home.
- Post photos and updates from family holidays.
- Document significant milestones in the child's development.
To create a Parent Story click on the Children tab and select the All Children page. You will then see all the children you are linked to. Under the child's name you want to create a story for select Parent Stories.
Start writing your story by choosing a descriptive title.
Next, write the main body of the story, utilising the three orange buttons above the main text box which allow you to add photos, videos and files.
Choose whether to notify your child's educators of your post by checking the Send Email box.
Once you are happy with your story, choose one of the following options:
Cancel will close the story without saving it.
Print Preview will open up a PDF version of the story which you can then download or print. This will not save your story, so be sure to return to either save it or post it.
Draft will save your story to the child's Draft Stories on their profile page, which can only be accessed by yourself.
Publish will post your story to your child's portfolio, which will then be seen by your child's educators and family immediately.
