Changes to Storypark

Erina Kindergarten families,

You may notice in the coming weeks that some of the documentation that you are receiving on story park will be changing. After much reflection on our current documentation processes we will now be completing ‘snapshots of our day’ in replacement of the current day sheet. This will allow for our families to continue to see photos of all the wonderful experiences that the children undertake each day within their Kindi environments.

In making these changes we are ensuring that we spend more time taking part in quality interactions and documenting meaningful and holistic learning that your children are taking part in. You will notice that your child/ren will be receiving more group and individual learning stories that will keep you updated through their learning journey.

Please give us any feedback that you have, we appreciate your contributions as we continue to improve our programming and planning procedures.

Kind regards,
Erina Kindergarten Team.
