Once you've made the decision to implement Storypark it's important to make sure any members of your team who haven't been involved in the process so far feel welcome and excited about getting started.
Our implementation plan guides educators through three easy stages – everything they need to know to go from a Rookie to Storypark Guru.
Share the implementation via a conversation in Storypark or print it out for your team.
Below is an example email/letter that you can send to your team:
Dear (insert name),
(Early learning service/group name) is committed to helping teachers, parents, families and communities work together in providing the best learning opportunities for young children.
We are excited to announce that we will be implementing Storypark – a private online space to ensure every child receives the best support possible and that families are involved and up to date with children’s development.
Storypark provides each child with a private online community which is owned by parents and travels with their child throughout their learning journey.
improve understanding of each child’s interests and abilities so they receive even better support
deepen relationships and strengthen communication
create a portfolio of children’s learning via videos, photos, audio and text
reinforce experiences, deepen insights and assist planning
support collaboration and communication with teaching teams
record and report against Registered Teacher Criteria, National Quality Standards and other standards
involve the children in their portfolio
interact quickly and effectively through iPhone, Android and tablets
create smooth transitions when children move from ECE to primary.
