OFSTED are keen that all childcare facilities including childminders and nurseries form a partnership with the parents of the children they care for.
Baby’s Days is the ONLY system available that allows the parents of the children you care for the ability to login to your system and securely view areas of their child's Early Years Development.
The parent side of the system will allow them to view any dairies that have been created for their child along with the photos and videos that were uploaded for each day’s diary.
Parents can also view their child's Progress including the achievement dates of each Early Years Outcome, the Progress/Observation notes that have been added and all the photographs and videos that have been uploaded to their child's Progress.
Parents can also view four photograph and video galleries on the system, so now there is no excuse for you not to share those Early Years photographs and videos with the parents of the children you care for.
You can also use the Policies and Permissions on the system and assign them to individual children, once Policies and Permissions have been assigned to a child, the parent can read your Policies and Permissions when they connect, they can then agree and digitally sign their acceptance of them.
There's no need to purchase expensive paper format contracts, use the contracts on the system, assign them to the children's parents and they can read and digitally sign their acceptance to them online.
Once you have created a weekly or monthly invoice parents can connect to your system to view and print them, saving you even more time and money in printing costs.
Parents can connect to your system and view their child's weekly Attendance Registers, if necessary and you require them to sign them, the system will not let them view other areas of your system until they have accepted the hours you have approved.
Create a Newsletter and the parent can connect and view the Newsletter online, you then receive statistical information that they have connected and the date they viewed the Newsletter.
Parents can also view their child's 2 Year Progress Check and Termly Reports on the system and even complete the Parent's Comments and Feedback section of both sections.
You decide which areas of your system the individual children's parents can see on your system, you can allow them to view all areas of the system or just 1 or 2 areas for specific children.
If you do not want to give parents access to specific areas of your system, you simply deny them access using a simple tick box selection, you can decide how much or how little you want them to view, it really is so simple.
