At Oakley we recognise how important it is that you know what activities your child has done when they’ve been at nursery, what they’ve eaten, how much sleep they’ve had etc. We use an app called ‘Famly’ which allows our nursery staff to share photos, videos and instant messages with parents, and parents to share information with nursery via their mobile phones, tablets or laptops.
There is a news feed which is similar to other social media programmes such as Facebook. You can message, post and ‘like’ items that nursery staff post and even add emoticons.
All information is visible in real time which means that you can see important events as they happen. We are also able to share our observations of the children’s wellbeing, learning and development and link it to the early years foundation stage so that you can see and understand the progress your child is making.
You can contribute to your child’s learning and development record by posting photographs and accounts of what your child does outside of nursery. Staff can add the links to the EYFS to your posts enabling real collaboration to support your child’s learning and development.
All data stored on Famly is protected securely and compliant with data protection regulations including the General Data Protection Regulation.
