Engaging parents with the capture app
How does it work?
Not only can you send observations to parents, but within the parent app, the child’s parents can create an observation too. This is a great way for you to see what goes on at home. It allows you to see what their interests are so you can build and further develop these. It also allows to to see how the child is fulfilling some areas of their curriculum which, maybe you cannot see at nursery, such as climbing up stairs if you don’t have any within the setting.
How can you help?
A great way to get started with engaging parents is to set children homework. Even if it’s just a simple counting or colouring activity. you can theme it around the topics or seasons you are looking at within your childcare setting. Maybe your theme this term is transport. How about a simple map to and from a destination or drawing your dream car?
