Learning Book gives parents a smart, flexible way to review and interact with their child’s early years education by transforming the link between home and the classroom.
Support your child’s learning
Do you know what your child did today at school or nursery, or what they’re doing tomorrow? More importantly, do you know how that fits into their learning journey or what milestones they are currently working towards? Parents face enough time constraints as it is, and keeping up to date with your child’s daily progress is not made any easier by limited contact time with their teachers and key workers. You need to be able to follow, review and understand what your son or daughter gets up to at school or nursery in order for you to give them the right support at home. More often than not, schools and nurseries don’t have the tools to enable this.
Learning Book is a complete digital solution for learning journeys where your child’s school or nursery can record, analyse and share information on their progress.
Paper learning journeys are outdated, impractical and often unavailable to parents, which is why we’ve developed a smarter, safer and more accessible way of capturing and presenting your child’s Early Years progress. Learning Book brings learning journeys to the digital age, providing parents with an electronic version of their child’s learning journey which they can access and engage with at any time. Increased visibility means parents can support the skills their son or daughter is learning at school or nursery by using the same teaching styles and processes at home when planning fun and educational activities.
With Learning Book, you can:
View and comment on observations taken at school through the My Learning Book portal.
See how each observation is linked to the EYFS curriculum and what link means.
Give extended or overseas family access to view your child’s learning journey.
View your child’s overall progress throughout the early years curriculum.
Upload your own photos and video media from home activities to enhance your child’s learning record.
Access and download activities relevant to your child’s stage of development, created by your child’s school or nursery.
Get more involved with your child’s education - wherever you are, whenever it suits you.
Don’t miss out on the small things
Even the small steps are a big part of your child’s development, and Learning Book means you don’t miss out on a single part of your child’s learning journey. A permanent electronic copy of your son or daughter’s learning journey can be accessed securely by parents at any time.
Dear Little Pippins Parent
Improving School Communications with ParentMail
Communicating with parents is an important part of what we do, making sure you get the correct information about activities, events and things that really matter is something we care about.
Traditionally we have used printed letters but delivery of these can be unreliable; they are also expensive, take time to produce and are not environmentally friendly.
From 10th January 2017 we will be using ParentMail, a service used by over 6,000 schools, nurseries and children’s clubs to communicate to parents. ParentMail will be beneficial to you because:
• Messages will get to you reliably and on time
• We can send messages directly to mums, dads and other carers at the same time
• Emergency or important information can be sent by text message
• iPhone and Android Apps available for parents on the go.
To help get things moving please email the Preschool at Littlepippinsfirstname.lastname@example.org confirming the following information:
• Childs initials
• Email addresses to be used (if parents are separated please provide second email, if both parents would like to register)
To use the latest version of ParentMail all you need to do is verify your account. During the first week in January you will be sent either an email or text message from ParentMail, when you receive this please just follow the instructions below.
If you have both a mobile number and an email address registered on your account, you will receive a registration invitation by text and email. You can decide which way you register – but you will only need to register once.
Please click on the link from the text message and follow the verification process. You will be asked to enter some details, answer a security question to verify who you are and to set a password for your account.
Please click on the link from the email and follow the verification process. As above, you will be asked to enter some details, answer a security question to verify who you are and to set a password for your account.
Please be assured that ParentMail is registered with the Information Commissioner and guarantees that all information you provide will be kept private and will not be passed on to any other organisation.
