Keeping up with the new, innovative technology in the child care industry, Little Guppy is very excited to announce that we will be utilizing a program called Tadpoles!

From Tadpoles, teachers can send photos and videos to allow you to see a glimpse into your child’s day! Teachers will also be creating a daily report for each child. This daily report will keep you informed of the daily activities, learning experiences, and care events for your child each day. All photos, videos, and daily reports are emailed to you directly and you can also access them via the free Tadpoles Parent app, available on Apple and Android devices, or online at www.tadpoles.com as well!

Tadpoles helps to strengthen our home-to-school connection. From your Tadpoles parent account, via the app or web, you will be able to enter in morning drop off notes for your child’s teachers, mark your child absent, and/or add any additional notes to be communicated to the school.

Each classroom will be equipped with an iPad mini which will be specifically used for the Tadpoles program. If you see a teacher on what looks like a phone or tablet, rest assured, they are only using the device to input information into Tadpoles. We consider all information captured within Tadpoles to be a private communication between our school and our families. No personal information is shared with any external parties and as a parent you will only receive information specifically about your child. The confidentiality of all information is maintained through the security features of the Tadpoles software.

We are very excited to be utilizing Tadpoles and know it will positively impact the engagement four families and our home-to-school connection. We feel confident that you will love Tadpoles and the level of involvement it allows you to have with your child’s daily experiences while a tour school.
