DayshareThe new way to communicate with parents Capture daily activities of all children on a laptop, tablet or pc Customise each child’s day with personal information Send a daily report to all parents at the click of a button
Parents love to know how their children are getting on at nursery.
Dayshare, allows you to strengthen that connection, while also keeping records of the child’s progress.
Dayshare allows you to capture all the day’s exciting activities for a group of children, by entering the information once and then apply it to everyone that took part. This can be tailored to provide more detailed information about individual children, including things like how much food they ate, their moods, behaviours, achievements or sleep patterns.
Parents lead busy lives and may not always have much time to talk when they collect their children. Just hit ‘send’ and Dayshare will email the day’s information to them, allowing them to read it at their leisure. It’s also a great way of letting parents know about upcoming events, unpaid invoices, or other key messages. They can then choose to forward this on to family and friends.
Whatever technology your staff have access to, updating Dayshare is quick and easy. Some nurseries give their staff access to Android tablets or iPads so they can record activities as they happen, or they can use a PC when they have access. It’s easy to add information, so nobody needs to be a computer genius to produce an amazing report!
Nothing is ever lost from Dayshare so you can look back and see how children have progressed. Links into Abacus mean you can run reports and parents can review them by logging into Parent Portal. This is seen by parents as a real benefit of placing a child in your nursery, and makes you stand out from other nurseries in the area.
Parent PortalGive your parents access to their child’s information 24/7 Parent Portal provides a secure login on your website that gives read only access to a host of information
they would normally need to interrupt staff to discover
Parent Portal allows parents direct and secure access to information like emergency contact details allergies, dietary and medical requirements, and much more. You will no longer need to circulate child data forms periodically, and hope that parents return them. Instead you can make them responsible for letting you know if anything is out of date at any time.
Parents can login to view a read-only version of their child’s information and, should they need information updated, they can use the ‘Communicate’ feature to highlight errors, request changes to be made or extra sessions to be added. They cannot make any changes to your information themselves.
