If your child is at Tiny Footsteps on their birthday, we celebrate the birthday with a birthday cake baked in our kitchen or for children with allergies we can make fruit platters. Parents are most welcome to join us or leave cameras for us to record the celebration.
When your child enrols they are given a special portfolio in which is recorded the early learning and experiences while at Tiny Footsteps. This book records your child’s journey of exploration and discovery, special interests and strengths. Parents are welcome to take the books home at any time.
We also offer parents an online platform Storypark to view their child learning. Storypark is a great way to share your child’s learning with family overseas.
We also have a filing cabinet with their own individual file to hold their paintings. Your child can check this at any time and take paintings home.
Communication with Parents
At Tiny Footsteps we try to make communication with parents as open and informative as possible. We recognise parents are busy and to help with communication we have put the following communication channels in place.
Fortnightly newsletters informing parents of social events, education programmes, parent and family events, environment initiatives, equipment and any other relevant information.
A whiteboard outside each building keeps parents up to date with current events.
Nappy changes, toileting and sleep times are recorded in information sheets available for parents to view each day.
Parents are encouraged to discuss freely any matter concerning their child or Tiny Footsteps with the teachers and management.
The children are encouraged to develop their interest in gardening and help with the planting.
