Communications | Childcare | Preschool
What sets our preschool apart from the rest? Parent communication is a priority for all staff members. For classrooms with children under the age of three, communication with parents is done via a program called HiMama. HiMama can be accessed by downloading an app or signing onto a website. All information posted to HiMama is tagged to a particular child, so a parent only receives information about their child. Throughout the day, teachers add information to each child’s “daily sheet” concerning things like diapering/pottying, feeding and naps. Teachers also post a copy of their daily lesson plans to HiMama so parents can see what their class is talking about and the different activities throughout the day. Teachers can post pictures of the children during activities such as centers, art, sensory or playground time. HiMama can also be used to send messages between parents and teachers.
For classes with children over the age of three, regular communications with our parents are in the form of a daily curriculum sheet that breaks down what activities are implemented for the day. When children tell their parents they played all day, then we are doing our job. Whether they realize it or not, they are building positive learning skills. Parents are encouraged to review the Daily correspondences from the teachers and discuss them with their preschool aged children. Fun dinner time questions may be: Tell me about the manners book from circle time; What new word did you learn today in Spanish?; In your science project, what happened to the penny when the vinegar touched it?; or Tell me about your project today that had to do with the letter “D”.
