Storypark

Dear Families,

Woodland Schoolhouse is excited to announce that we will be implementing Storypark – a secure, private online space to ensure your child receives the best support possible and that you are involved and up-to-date with your child’s development.

Storypark provides each child with an online community which you (their parent/guardian) own and control who has access to, at no cost, for as long as you wish.

Storypark helps teachers, children and families:

  • improve understanding of each child’s interests and abilities so they receive even better support
  • deepen relationships and strengthen communication
  • share videos, photos and text capturing children’s learning and development
  • create a portfolio of your child’s learning that travels with your child and can be accessed by you forever
  • reinforce experiences and deepen children’s learning
  • capture family culture and heritage
  • involve the children in their portfolio
  • interact quickly and effectively through iPhone, Android and tablets

You can choose to add your own stories or leave comments and feedback for children and teachers. You can also choose to share these stories with family members if you wish. We hope that you will invite your extended family so that the children have an authentic audience who are genuinely interested in their learning.

Obviously we have considered the aspects of cybersafety and made sure our teachers have the knowledge and skills to ensure we are cybersafe. Storypark takes security very seriously. Storypark is not open for anyone to read, it is a password-protected private space for you, your child’s teachers and your family.

Content we add will only be shared with our teachers and the family members you choose to invite. No personal information is shared with any third party.

What do you need to do now? With your permission, we will create and invite you to your child’s Storypark community. All you need to do is accept the invite and participate.

We welcome your feedback and look forward to providing an even more responsive, innovative and valuable experience for you and your child.

COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Update, Summer 2020:

Dear Prospective Parents and Caregivers,

Woodland Schoolhouse is currently closed but planning to reopen entirely outdoors in September. We’ve always been a small, “mostly outdoor” school so, fortunately, this is a natural and minimal shift for us. We are taking COVID precautions very seriously and have implemented many new routines and policies designed to keep our environment as safe as possible while open.

I’m deeply thankful for the opportunity to offer a joyful, outdoor environment where your child can grow and thrive with a small, consistent group of friends this year. If you’re interested in enrolling your child this fall, please fill out our wait list form and I will reach out to schedule a time for us to connect.

Warmly,

Nicole
