Early Learning Zoom Story Time
Connection is really important within our Early Learning Centre, and to help foster this throughout this time of isolation, we have embarked upon a Zoom Story Time journey.
This allows the children and families at home to stay connected with us, and is just as great of an importance for us as educators, as it is for the children that we are entrusted with during this situation we find ourselves in. For us to facilitate the children being able to see each other, interact in a limited way, and have something special just for them at this time, became real-world problems that we needed to overcome.
We are so blessed to live in an age of technology, where platforms like Zoom and Storypark have become crucial to maintaining this connection. The thought of moving into this digital platform was a little confronting, but with so many avenues moving online now, it was an easy step to take when we made it.
The teachers and educators have been so excited about selecting stories and activities that the children can be a part of at home. This has bolstered the passion within them to educate and care for all the children enrolled in our Service. There have been many conversations about which story and what activities to provide. All of the educators are excited and anticipating their turn to interact with the children in this way. Even Mr Ollis joined in the fun when it was his normal library reading time with the children.
We are so excited about being able to still be together, even though we are apart, and look forward to all the stories we get to share in the coming days.
