Who is it for: Childcare professionals and management

How many times does a childcare professional needs to let parents know about a special date or even schedule an event (meetings, outings, special classes, etc) and ask their permission? We know it happens many times during the year…

Whats new in September 2018 - Events

This picture, for example, it’s an invitation for a parents ‘meeting. When an event is created it’s automatically organized on the teacher’s calendar where they can see parents ‘answers too.

When parents are invited to an event or asked to give permission for their child to participate in an activity, they will only see a “yes” and “no” button and must answer accordingly.

Try it and see how much time you and parents save with events management and permissions management too!

Your curriculum and children’s assessment

Who is it for: childcare professionals, management and inspectors

Whether you are either a:

  • Childcare professional that needs to record evidence of learning of a child or group, keep observations linked to your curriculum organised and kept in a private and always accessible place…
  • Manager or Director looking for an assurance that the curriculum is implemented according to what the inspectorate is looking for…
  • Inspector checking if a professional or a childcare/preschool setting is implementing the required curriculum frameworks correctly in their practices…

You are in the right place! ChildDiary was developed by childcare professionals to reduce drastically the time spent with the curriculum implementation while involving families.

Whats new in September 2018 - Observation

So, once more, we listened to ChildDiary´s users and we improved the way observations are done in the platform as well as the children’s assessment reports.

This means that every time a professional registers an observation and links it to their curriculum, the learning outcomes are automatically organised on a the child’s individual report.

This not only impresses inspectors as it helps professionals developing strategies and activities according to what they are observing.

Whats new in September 2018 - Curriculum Report

This is unique and it´s helping childcare professionals keeping up with European trends which stress the importance of assessing each child frequently as the only way of providing significant learning opportunities to each child.

This is what is called the child-centered learning and we are on it too!

Our mission is to help childcare professionals on their daily routines and requirements. We do it because we are also childcare professionals.

We fell it in first person, the challenges of keeping the curriculum documentation organised while assuring we are ready for an inspection…all the time…

Dear manager, if you want to be different from the other childcare providers and be ready for inspections at all time, you have to try ChildDiary. It is private, used widely and relies on Microsoft to deliver a service that can be trusted.
