FAQs: Tips and insights about the daily activity report
Why is a Daily Report important?
Daily reports are an integral part of the workings of a child care center for the owner, staff, and families, because daily reports contain a summary of day’s activities and events for infants and toddlers. For preschoolers, the report may include additional details on their progress in social, academic, or psychological state. Through the daily reports, families gain insights about their child’s health and development, as well as precious moments they missed when the child was in care. Childcare software, like brightwheel, helps providers send accurate and actionable daily reports in a consistent fashion, which improves communication with families, increases their engagement, and builds trust. It also automates administrative tasks and improves efficiency, both of which help staff spend more time working directly with children.
Can I record actions for multiple children at once?
Yes! When logging activities using brightwheel, you can select one, multiple, or all children in the classroom. This makes it faster for you and your staff to capture observations and share updates with families.
Who will see the recorded actions or photos?
For every activity logged or photo/video captured, brigthwheel requires children(s) to be tagged. Only administrators, staff, and family members connected to the children(s) profiles will see these updates in their activity feed. The family members who are interested in seeing logged activities must be connected to as Parent or Family contact types.
What are Staff Only posts?
Brightwheel allows programs to enable staff-only posts so that certain activities can be kept internal and/or others can be approved by a school administrator before being shared with families. This is great for assessments, observations, and private communication amongst staff members about student learning and behaviors. Additionally, it gives admins control over what families see.
