Individual or group stories

Write about an individual child, a group of children or a whole room or service. Stories can only be seen by your educators and the families of the children in them. Use individual stories for learning stories and magic moments for families with privacy concerns. Use group stories for daily diaries, quick updates to families or trip reports.

Work collaboratively

Tools that help educators and mentors develop children’s documentation together. Pool knowledge, share multiple perspectives and evolve stories amongst your teaching team. Simple for part-time staff to contribute and for those going on leave to hand over stories for timely completion in their absence.

Family, educator and child responses

Stories are a key part of two-way communication on Storypark. Educators and family members can respond with text or media. Our families app even prompts families with a range of simple conversation starters if they are unsure of how to get started.

Family moments

Families can create their own moments through the Families app and share them with you. See what a child did during their weekend or holidays and further contribute to your understanding of their development.

Child reflection

The iOS Educators app includes a child-safe mode that lets children view and reflect on their own learning. Sit together with a child and record audio or video responses - this means they can be active protagonists of their own learning.

Educator Portfolio stories

Save your documentation as evidence and even add supporting explanation to show how it contributes to your developmental goals or focus areas. Built for collaboration and development - reflect on your own learning or practice in portfolio stories, then select colleagues to get comments, guidance and feedback from.

Story types

Provide guidance for documentation with these prompts you can create, from which new stories can be started. You can use these prompts to help new educators gain confidence or mandate the types of documentation your educators will create.

Two-way communication

Unlike some software, Storypark priorities and understands the value of two-way communication in early childhood. Anywhere you want feedback or discussion with educators and families is possible on Storypark. We make it easy for everyone to get involved in a child’s learning.

We also know that you may want some one-way communication channels, allow parents to post some or all of your community spaces, or not.

Include extended family

It takes a village to raise a child - whether that’s a local or global village, Storypark allows parents to invite unlimited extended family. Grandparents overseas and uncles an hour away can all get involved in a child’s learning. Parents choose the level of access each person has.
