Early Intervention Milestones Tool Coming Soon!

Benefits

CREATE MORE MEANINGFUL CONVERSATION WITH YOUR CHILD

Did you ever ask your child what they did today, and the answer is NOTHING? You can now start your conversation knowing exactly what they did that day be it through pictures, observations, activities they did or general updates. Children love to know you’re interested in what they’re learning and Child Paths is a great way to get them talking about their day.

PEACE OF MIND

Have you ever dropped your child off and they were crying? It’s never easy, but now your Early Years Educator can upload a photo of your child two minutes later, so you know they are happy.

COMMUNICATION

Communicate much quicker and smarter with your child’s carer by sending them messages through the app. You can also send messages to your child’s room if you’re unsure who is in that day. Staff can acknowledge or reply back to your messages.

UNDERSTAND MORE ABOUT YOUR CHILDS DEVELOPMENTAL STAGES

You will have instant access to your child’s observations which will help you to understand more about your child’s development and their strengths. Our new Early Intervention Tool will also support and assist you in understanding what you can do to help your child reach those milestones. Our observations were also designed to help you understand more about Aistear and Siolta, the National Frameworks

BUILD A MEMORY

Create wonderful memories for your child through Child Paths by uploading photos to their profile. You can tag the photos into different categories such as Christmas, Birthdays, Halloween, Family days out, Holidays, etc and even tag those from your childcare setting into it’s own category so all of your photos are easy to find and your children will love looking at them all the time.

HELP THE TEACHERS BETTER UNDERSTAND YOUR CHILD

As part of Aistear the National Framework it’s important for the Early Years Educators to understand more about the children outside of the setting to help them create meaningful conversations which are also based on the child’s interests. You can help with this by uploading photos and sharing them of what they do on the weekends, on holiday or what activities they do. Explain what is happening in the caption, or even just upload photos of the child’s relatives and siblings for the family tree. It’s so easy, you can upload four photos at a time!

SHARE MEMORIES OR KEEP THEM PRIVATE

When uploading photos you can keep them private which means only your family can view the photos or you can share them with the Early Years setting.

UPDATE YOUR CHILD’S DETAILS FOR THE STAFF

You can update your child’s details for Medicines, Allergies, Fears, Favourite Songs, Favourite Foods etc. which will notify your child’s carer. This is really a get to know me page that you can always update.

RECEIVE EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS

One or both Guardians will receive an email notification for any photo or message sent through the Communication or Observations area. If you only have one email address registered you can add a second email address to “My Account.”

NO NEED FOR RUSHED CONVERSATIONS ANYMORE

Everyone knows just how busy both Parents and Early Years Educators are at drop off and pick up time. Parents are either rushing to work or rushing home to the rest of the family, and the staff are always busiest at these times, so it’s not always easy to give or receive all the relevant information on your child/children. Now you can simply send any information you forgot when you go to work or when you go home. Simply log in and send the message or update any info you need to. If you have forgotten to ask something, the chances are the answer is already in your child’s profile at this point anyway because the staff will be logging everything throughout the day on attendance, food, Medicine, Nappy changes, Sleep, Activities etc..
