Sharing your pictures has never been easier with ToucanLearn's facility to email photos directly from your mobile phone into the correct Daily Diary! There isn't an easier way to maintain EYFS diaries throughout the day and what's more, you can share your diaries straight with the relevant parents too, so that they can stay informed throughout the day.
Those members who tested this for us are unanimous in their praise!
"This great new feature of being able to send photos straight to the learning journey is great! It really makes my work very much enjoyable and its simple to use", Fay, Childminder, Bedfordshire.
Here’s what to do! Give it a try and let us know how you get on...
- Take a photo on your mobile phone
- Add a subject line and message - this will appear in the diary
- Include the child's name (or children's names) in the subject or message
- Email it to email@example.com directly from your phone
The photo will automatically appear in the account/s of the child/children's written in the subject line.
Subject: Musical statues
Message: Ben and Polly played musical statues, Polly won because Ben got the giggles and couldn't stay still!
This email will be turned into a Daily Diary entry for both Ben and Polly with the subject line as the entry title, and the message becomes the caption for the photograph.
Photo entries should appear in your diary within two minutes. If we fail to match the photo to the correct diary then you will receive an email back explaining the problem.
This feature is for Premium Members only as we don't offer photo uploads on free accounts.
Babies spend an awful lot of time lying in their cot, staring at the ceiling! Give them something to stimulate their senses and hang a mobile for them! You can readily buy wind-up or battery operated mobiles that turn and play tunes, but if you don't want to buy a mobile, why not make one for your baby instead? Make brightly decorated disks from cardboard and suspend them above the cot using thread. Make sure that it is securely tied and well out of reach from your baby so as not to present a hazard. High contrast colors will stimulate your baby's senses and relieve the boredom of staring up to a plain ceiling!
