Kindyhub is providing families with online "At Home" Learning Experiences.
During these challenging times, we want to ensure you that Kindyhub has your back, both from an Educators and Parent perspective.

Should Childcare Services be forced to close, Kindyhub can assist educators in providing families with a series of online learning videos, stories and  activities to complete at home:

Capture: Educators can upload images of learning activities and short explainer videos to share with families eg. creative arts, a short puppet show, physical activity options and much more.
Daily Journals: Educators can showcase different learning activities that parents can re-create at home.
  
Report Library: Kindyhub will create a new report option for all services called "At Home Learning". This will become part of your report library and can be customised to suit your services needs.
Family Stories: Families can upload these learning experiences directly via the Parent App or Web Portal for educators to plan and extend on the learning at home.

At-Home Learning Icon: Families will soon have access to learning activity ideas, daily program suggestions and links to relevant resources. Kindyhub will update on a regular basis.
This is an optional feature that can be enabled or disabled.

Please advise Kindyhub of any relevant information you would like us to include in this feature.     For further information please view Kindyhub's Website
