Thursday Tip: Keeping in Touch with Families during the Covid-19 Crisis

Services are currently closed so it is more important than ever to have good communication systems in place and to consider means of staying in touch:

Videos

Many educators are making videos to send to parents so children can see a familiar face. The excitement and comfort of seeing ‘the teacher’ sing a familiar song, tell a story or play a game cannot be underestimated.

Activities

Why not send parents curriculum plans to do at home. What a great way to educate parents about Aistear! There are lots of curriculum plans to choose from on our shop, and all are marked down 25% until Easter!

Newsletter

Send parents a newsletter. We offer a create-your-own newsletter tool that allows you to produce a personalised newsletter for your service with your service name and contact details. Choose from helpful articles provided by Canavan Byrne and add your own news specific to your service. The newsletter is FREE for April and also comes with a free Family Notice with helpful tips for parents on keeping children busy while they are at home.

Whatsapp

Set up a Whatsapp group and use it to share ideas and tips.
