Each child has their own profile page where you can view and edit their details, view their stories and notes, and see which family members also have access. You can also see their birthday and the early learning services they are part of.
This article will take you through all of the information you can see as an educator, if you view a child's profile.
In this guide, learn about:
Stories – snapshot view
In this view, stories appear as ‘tiles’ (rather than in a stream as on the ‘Latest Activity’ page). Each tile shows a title (if there is one), up to four images or videos within the story and the first few lines of text. At the bottom of each tile you can see who authored the story, when, how many times it’s been viewed by family members, and how many comments it has.
You can change the order of the stories you see by clicking the Order by drop-down. Recent activity shows stories with new comments first. Story date shows the stories ordered by publish date. You can also filter the stories by the learning tags in them.
Stories – full view
Tap anywhere on a story tile and the full story will open. Scroll down to read the full story. From this view you can see which children are in the story, the author, date added, learning tags and any comments that have been made.
Authors and admin educators can edit the story, and print it with various print options. Close the story to go back to the snapshot view.
Family moments are designed specifically for parents to create themselves, to add to their timeline and choose who to share them with. If a family chooses to share their moments with educators, they will show up under this tab. You can respond to any moment shared with you. Sharing family moments with teachers helps create a reciprocal learning community around a child.
Families can create moments in the Storypark for Families iOS app or the Android app. Learn more on the Storypark for Families help centre.
Child notes are only shared with the educators and family member admins shown to the right of this page. This space is generally used for teachers and parents to share information privately about a child.
Some examples of notes might be:
Sharing information specifically about the child
Sharing ideas on how to continue the child’s learning and interests at home
Sharing files and resources with the child’s parents.
Need to see who is connected to a child's profile and/or the level of access they have?
When an educator adds a child to Storypark they can invite two of that child’s family members (usually parents/guardians). They can then choose whether or not to invite more family members. Once invited and accepted, you can see them here. You’ll be able to view each person’s name, profile image, and email address. If a person is an admin (an admin can manage a child’s account), this will be shown next to their name.
There is a Photo books tab on each child's profile page where you can create and order a hard cover book from a child's photos. Learn more about photo books.
