Tara's Toyland Home Daycare
|Posted by tarastoyland on 21 April, 2015 at 9:45|
I have a facebook persona (Tara's Toyland) which is only for daycare stuff. I only allow people connected to the children currently enrolled to "friend" Tara's Toyland so it's all people that somehow know the kids. It's really neat to be able to give little antedotes of our day or tell everyone at once what we did for our lesson that day. I post pictures often too. Parents use it to connect with other parents for playdates or just to keep in touch after they leave my daycare.
Today in my newsfeed.there was a picture from a year ago and it said to click to see more from this day in the past. I got a smile from what came up -
April 21, 2014 I posted a photo album - "dying eggs, babies playing, Pilcher Park".
April 21, 2011 "Please send get better wishes to **** - he had to go to the doctor's today because his breathing was so bad - he has an ear infection and bronchialitis. He went home before our egg hunt but did get to do the egg coloring and hunted on his own. His wheezing was so bad, I was very worried!!"
April 21, 2010 "we read Honey Bees book, learned how bees dance and wiggle to talk and then tried it ourselves, we sang Here is the Beehive and we tasted honey"
Sometimes we forget the details. I really want to do a Social Book for the daycare. Social Book is a company that uses your facebook posts and the comments on them and even pictures and compiles them into a photo book. The only problem is I priced out just ONE YEAR and it was WAY too expensive. And a whole year didn't fit in one book either. Yep, I sure do use facebook as a communication with parents tool!
