At Clyde Valley Kindergarten, we believe that a strong link between home and nursery is important for our children and families. With this in mind, we have many methods of communication available on daily basis including:


  • Open telephone/email policy
  • Member of management team always on hand
  • Key person system
  • Suggestion box
  • Compliments and concerns book
  • Online Learning Journals
  • Online diary system
  • Parent Consultation Group
  • Newsletter produced every 5-8 weeks
  • Regular email updates
  • Regular progress updates and parent appointments
  • Annual Information Evening

We use Online Learning Journals to record the progress and development of each child within the Kindergarten. Parents can access these at any time, from their phone, tablet or computer and receive an instant update on their child's day at a time that suits them. The progress is recorded in the form of photographs and observations, and provides a fantastic snapshot of each child's day at the nursery.


Our team actively encourage parents to add to the Learning Journals too, in the form of comments on their child's learning and experiences, and by uploading achievements and information from home.


The Learning Journals have been a worthwhile investment to us, proving popular with the Practitioners, parents and children. For Practitioners, it provides more time to spend with the children on a day to day basis. The children thoroughly enjoy looking at their achievements and the parents feel more involved in their children's learning.


"I love the new online system as I can keep up to date with the children's progress much more easily. It captures great moments to share with the parents as they happen."



"I really enjoy working with the Online Journals as you can easily track the children's progress each day. It also reads a lovely story for parents to see it on a daily basis."
