STAY CONNENCTED WITH OUR OWNA APP
The Owna app is provided as an online resource that allows you to interact with your child’s learning and development no matter where you are. We can instantly record and communicate your child’s progress and send you updates, photos and videos of what they’re doing throughout the day.
Using the App allows a two-way communication channel. You can provide feedback and updates about their achievements outside of the centre, it helps us to tailor activities and resources to their interests and abilities. It is a valuable platform for us to foster stronger relationships with you and enhance your childcare experience as a family.
Ask our friendly educators to give a demonstration of how Owna is used to keep you involved in your child’s daily learning and play.
One-On-One With Eductators
Parent-teacher communication often occurs rather quickly and while we’re on the run. Both parents and teachers are busy sometimes we only chat on an informal level, as parents drop off and pick up children.
Both families and educators need to be aware of the importance of passing on information which helps both parties better anticipate the child’s behaviour. Make sure you take the time to tell our educators about anything we might need to know. Is your child having nightmares? Did they have a bad night? This will also give our educators the opportunity to inform you on your child’s behaviour and habits in the classroom.
If families need to have longer talks with educators, it is important to make an appointment outside of session times rather than take the educator’s attention away from the children. Open communication between families and educators facilitate positive home and child care relationships based on trust and positive interaction.
Ally’s Kindy believes in the importance of parental involvement at our childcare centre. We highly encourage you to participate in the daily life of your child, whatever your circumstances. We appreciate that time is precious to working parents, but we also believe that your involvement in your child’s education can really make a difference.

Our staff and educators invite you to become an active part of the Ally’s Kindy community. Here are some ways you can offer support and also be involved in your child’s day:
