Learning Journeys… The Best of Both Worlds

Combining the efficiency of modern technology with the traditional tangible learning journey. 

Providing parents with a online learning journal and timeline of their child’s activities on their tablet or smartphone via ParentZone has proved a great success. Over 40,000 parents log in on a weekly basis, with an average of over 30,000 parental contributions each month. ParentZone has meant that busy parents are now more involved with their child’s learning.

But some parents have missed having printed photos of their child to cherish and share with the family.

Receiving printed photos is a great feeling for families with children in day care, and in order to bring back something tangible, without adding extra pressure onto practitioners, we are developing iConnect Photo.

iConnect photo is a completely new concept, unlike anything else on the market. Linking directly with ParentZone, it will allow parents & carers to print treasured photos of their child at nursery, straight from their smartphone app.

Parents are able to log into their secure ParentZone app to view photos and videos of their child at nursery, and now, at the touch of a button they can select their favourite photos to print, to be delivered directly to their door. They can even create gifts, such as mugs, calendars and photo books.

iConnect photo bridges the gap between the traditional paper based daily diaries, and increasingly popular online learning journals, by giving parents something tangible without compromising the efficiency of the practitioners.

We have ensured that the ordering process is quick and easy and won’t take any time away from practitioners and key workers. Best of all, for every photo or gift ordered, the nursery will get a share of the profits.
