How do you keep parents informed about children's progress?
At West Ryde Long Day Care Centre, we prioritise trust, transparency, and clear communication with parents. The dedicated custom Eikoh App, a secure mobile-based platform, is the best way for us to keep parents updated on their child's development and progress. Our educators use the app to share photos, videos, stories, activities, and reflections in real-time, ensuring that parents feel connected to their child's learning.
The Eikoh app also allows parents to respond to posts, communicate directly with us, upload their media, and keep up to date on important announcements. We also use email, newsletters, and progress reports distributed twice a year to ensure every parent is updated and informed.
