DAILY REPORTS

Each day parents receive a detailed guide about their child’s day consisting of daily reports from your child’s teacher outlining your child’s activities, routines, and care including new skills learned, classroom activities and special accomplishments. 

 

MONTHLY NEWSLETTERS

Each month a newsletter, snack menu and home learning calendar will be emailed to you, posted on our Y Preschool Riverside Facebook page, and posted in your child’s classroom. These communications have upcoming event information as well as policy updates.

 

TADPOLES

Tadpoles is a communication system that allows us to securely send photos and videos of your child to you, providing you with a glimpse into your child’s day! Teachers also use Tadpoles to create the daily reports for each child. All photos, videos, and daily reports are emailed to you directly and you can also access them via the free Tadpoles Parent app, available on Apple and Android devices, or online at www.tadpoles.com.

From your Tadpoles Parent Account, you will be able to enter in morning drop off notes for your child’s teachers, mark your child absent, and/or add any additional notes to be communicated to the preschool.

All information captured within Tadpoles is considered private communication between the preschool and our families. No personal information is shared with any external parties and as a parent, you will only receive information specifically about your child. The confidentiality of all information is maintained through the security features of the Tadpoles software.
