About Storypark

Storypark is a child care management software designed to help educators and organizations maintain progress portfolios, track children’s learning journey, and communicate with family members on a centralized platform. Teachers can utilize templates to create learning plans, attach support documentation, and gain visibility into children’s activities, learning trends, and other outcomes through reports.

Using Storypark's analysis and reporting tools, educators can compare curriculum utilization across several periods and track each child's interests, family involvement, and learning journey. Instructors can capture children's learning activities in the form of images or videos, share news, gather feedback or event details, and engage with community members. Organizations can create custom teaching curricula according to requirements, send direct messages to parents, and conduct discussions with team members about children's education. Teachers can share policies or forms with family members and view details about course planning, announcements, and upcoming assessments on a centralized platform. Supervisors can also monitor parents’ engagement, faculty members' activities, relevant issues, and other opportunities on a dashboard.

Storypark allows organizations to ensure compliance with curriculum guidelines and streamline performance assessment or rating processes. Educators can also build their portfolios by gathering feedback from supervisors or mentors and adding information about accreditation, professional learning, appraisals, and goals.

Wonderful Communication - Feels Like I'm There!

Overall, I loved using Storypark. I felt like I was literally at daycare with my nephew day in and day out. Anytime I wanted to check in on him, all I had to do was open the app! No need to call and ask about what he is doing or learning!

Pros

I used this software to keep up with my nephew's progress while he was at preschool. On the app, I was able to see pictures, updates, and more. This made the line of communication so easy between me and the teachers, as I was able to post updates and ask questions, while they were able to post updates and respond to comments if necessary. It kind of felt like a timeline with graphics.

Cons

I can't say that I really found any cons with story park, except that maybe there should be a feature where you can turn off comments on photos.

Overall I love it, I love how it is free for parents to continue to use once they leave kindergarten and I love how parents are able to contribute to their child's learning.

Pros

I like that the product is fairly user friendly especially going from the internet. I love how I can upload videos for the parents to witness what their child is saying and doing, video is much better than a photo to tell a story, however I will add photos also.

Cons

The picture are easy to upload, however you can not do anything else with them apart from putting them straight up. I know another program we used to use allowed us to put the picture onto an angle and with stars around them etc.
Not very happy with using the app as sometimes the picture just don't go up, however I just don't use it as often as I do going through the internet.
As we are using tablet and windows computer, I struggle to be able to move pictures from one story to another. The photos go black and I have tried getting help a couple of times, not sure what I am doing wrong there.

Once we learned to found our way around Storypark and used the mindset of not being scared or time poor to try things out, we haven't looked back.
The webinars and online videos are really useful. The help feature is great! Storypark operators are really prompt and we have used them often.
Keep improving Storypark.

Pros

Storypark has been a fantastic way to engage with parents and whānau. Educators put a lot of passion into writing assessments. When I get a notification from a parent or extended family member ( sometimes from the other side of the world) about something I've posted about a child, it feels like formative assessment and not just another story in their portfolio.
Community posts have been a great way to reach all of our parent community, or particular groups with information about upcoming events, readings, newsletters etc.
Planning feature. Plans can be added too and shared with parents and seek their input. We share agendas and minute our staff, health and safety and termly planning meetings. We create individual plans for children or positive guidance plans to share with parents. Great to be able to link to stories, photos, notes and pdfs etc!
We use child notes to communicate privately with parents. Each term we invite parents to share their aspirations and many do.
Our kindergarten association has a community too and we receive posts from them about professional development, policy reviews and other important information that used to clutter up our inboxes. We share a monthly plan on here with our GM as a strategic update to help communicate what is going on in our individual kindergartens.
We now do our appraisals on Storypark planning and are now looking at using the portfolio feature for evidence gathering.

Cons

There needs to be a better way to edit our assessments when printing to utilise A4 paper efficiently. Make them aesthetic, they look awful on paper. More than 2 photos and the photos are too small. and there is 1/2 empty page! My colleagues all use 'Pages' to get a nice looking assessment and then upload pdfs, but that is time consuming. We want to be able to edit our online documents to create nicely printed documents. This would really maximise the time we have for writing assessments.
The filters in the planning tab are limited and we struggle to find what we want. When you have a lot of plans as we do, it would be great to be able to put them in folders. The All about Me Plans (approx. 70 ) take up a lot of room. Also when we archive our meeting plans each term, we have to do that individually, is there a way we can select a number to archive at once?
We have lost information by not clicking save on each cell-annoying
Between our own learning tags and our association's (for appraisals), this area seems cluttered and we have to scroll through an awful lot in a very tiny box, to find what we need. Can they be organised better under headings that only open when you click on them?
Portfolio section, maybe organise by Professional Standards? We want to filter our documents to easily identify how different indicators meet Professional Standards and Code of Conduct? Perhaps the Quality Practice Template from the Education Council could be a template for the portfolio?

Overall we are very happy with Storypark. It is making communication easier and more efficient. It is helping us to reach family members that in the past have been difficult. It fosters open and reciprocal information sharing.
With our children that are non-verbal, it gives families a chance to see pictures and videos and share in their child's day.
It is great fro reaching both sides of a split family in an equitable and open way.

Pros

I like how easy i9t is for my staff to share wonderful lessons and daily experiences with families. It is also a great way to communicate with families on a more personal basis, it is easy for most people to access and is more secure than texting or even email.

Cons

Some of our families struggle to use the app on their phone. We try to help but technology can be confusing.
I can sometimes find the menus a bit complex and information can be hard to find.

Time management, involving families in their child's learning and simply communicating with families. Streamlining documentation cycle.

Pros

That I am able to link all of my documentation suite together and share this easily with families. It means we can easily collaborate and set goals for the children.

Cons

At times the planning feature can be difficult to format so it fits on one page for printing. Sometimes you need to click through several steps to get to the information you need. It would be good if you could collage photos within writing stories to group photos as one image - as when portfolios are exported the file size of photos is huge.
