In Finland, children learn through play and we don't score children! So how can the parents be sure that their child is developing and learning, while also having fun? Parents want to be engaged and confident that the preschool provides high-quality education. But the daily face-to-face meetings between educators and parents are so hectic. There is simply so little time and so much to tell and discuss concerning the child's learning journey. A better approach is needed.
How to go forward?
Planning and pedagogical documentation are the basis for high-quality education. A consistent learning process throughout the year is required as the foundation for engaging the parents and making the child's learning journey visible to them.
Lack of time is a challenge in childcare centers all over the world and therefore digital solutions help a lot with daily collaboration. With a digital solution such as Kindiedays Pedagogical Management Solution, you can share the child's learning journey both in real-time and in the form of automatically collected portfolios and reports. No need to hassle with pen and paper anymore. Educators save time and families find all the important information in one place.
With the learning process and foundation in place, you can offer the parents superior ways to stay engaged and confident.
Promise this to the parents to gain their confidence in your preschool!

Review portfolios and developmental reports in parent-teacher discussions
While the children’s activities and observations are shared in real-time with the parents through Kindiedays App, the parent-educator discussion typically happens once in three to six months. Here the child's portfolios and reports are reviewed and the next steps in the child’s developmental journey are planned together.
Child portfolios are the compilation of the teacher observation posts made in Kindiedays application. The portfolio can be created for a specific period to discuss a child's progress with parents.
Learning reports are snapshots of where each child is on his or her educational journey. They are not meant to measure how ‘good’ or ‘bad’ a child is in a particular area of learning, but a 360-degree look into the children’s developmental journey.
