In this article:
The News feed
When you make an observation about a child, this is posted to their Journey tab and the News feed, for parents to view and interact with. You can share what the child was doing with the parents, and they can 'Like' and comment on the observation.
The Journey tab and assessments
Parents also have access to their child's Journey tab and any assessments made about their child. Again, parents can 'Like' and comment on these, to share their feedback with you.
As part of your partnership with parents, you can enable parents to make observations about their child. This allows you greater insight into the child's development and interests at home, as well as encouraging parents to really feel involved.
Enabling parental observations
You must enable parental observations in your settings. To do this:
Log in to the app and open the 'Settings' menu (indicated with a cog icon)
Click on 'Child Development'
Next, click on 'Parent observations'
Finally, click on the button next to 'Parent observations'(as below)
Guidance for parents
To assist parents in creating observations, we have created an article in the parents' section of the help centre. You can view this article below:
Approving parent observations
Parents' observations are not posted directly to the Journey tab or the News feed- you will need to approve them first. You can view and approve pending observations in Child Development
