Communicating with you

Storypark for families

We love communicating with you about your child’s learning. That’s why we use Storypark!

Sharing your child’s day is an important way to strengthen the relationship between children, whānau and teachers. It enables you to relive important moments in a private online community that grows with your child over time.

Barnardos Early Learning use Storypark to share these moments.

What is Storypark?

Storypark is a secure website and app where learning stories and magic moments, photos and videos of your child’s day are shared. Storypark enables teachers to communicate about on your child’s learning and development as it happens, and you can even comment back! It’s a great way to tell us about what’s happening at home so that even more connections and relationships can be formed between our teachers and your family.

Storypark is also how we communicate with you about what’s going on in your early learning community. We’ll upload newsletters, events and interesting discussion topics, such as excursions, parent evenings and other chances for you to be involved in your child’s learning and community.

  • The security of your childs portfolio we upload is in your hands - ownership of all images, videos and information lies with you (not Storypark or us).
  • You get to keep access to the portfolio once your child goes to school.
  • The ability to see what your child has been learning while with us, giving you opportunities to share learning at home.
  • You can provide feedback and have conversations with your child’s teachers and educators online, in your own time.
