Get an insight into your child’s classroom
- Have you ever wanted to be a fly on the wall in your child’s classroom?
Do you wish your teachers had a more effective way to share classroom activities and information with you?
If so, The Daily Diary is for you, your Early Learning Centre, your Kindergarten or your Primary School!
“What did you do today? What did you learn about? What’s happening tomorrow?
These are common questions asked by parents of their children.
9/10 times the answer is either ‘nothing’ or ‘I don’t remember’.
Whether you have a baby or toddler in long day care, a 3 or 4 year old in kinder or a school aged child, The Daily Diary can provide you with a glimpse into your child’s classroom activities allowing you to share in their learning experiences and to reinforce their learning at home.
The Daily Diary, a user friendly web-based documentation and communication tool, allows teachers to share classroom activities with families. Teachers can easily record classroom activities through photographs and text and share them securely with families using individual passwords.
Documentation of classroom activities gets stored on a calendar in the form of photographs and text. Nominated family members can access this calendar on the Internet using a secure password from any computer, wherever they are!!
Families can view the page with their child, move images around the screen, zoom in on images and discuss and share the day. It’s easy and fun to use and very interactive!! The Daily Diary even lets families know about special events like a casual clothes day, or an excursion. No more notes in pigeon holes or lost notes in bags…. No more paper wastage!! What’s more, The Daily Diary is archived so families can always view their child’s calendar from previous days, months or even years.
The Daily Diary was developed by Melbourne mother of two and qualified primary teacher Julie Hilton.
“When my son Brody started crèche, the teachers painstakingly recorded classroom activities and had a display book outside the room. Dedicated teachers spent up to an hour each day completing documentation, which many parents never got to see! There had to be a way to save time and make the children’s activities more easily accessible to families. Technology and the internet provided such opportunities”.
Here’s what some parents have had to say about The Daily Diary.
“Whilst working interstate, the Daily Diary has been invaluable - it’s provided access to the happenings in my daughter’s classroom, from projects and photos to messages between teachers and parents.”
“Being so busy at work, I get excited when an email notification pops up from The Daily Diary and I know I will get to see what’s been happening at kinder that day. It’s like an instant window into my daughters little world. I love it and it’s so simple to use”.
