Why parents love Playground.

Increase connection to a child’s learning journey

Parents receive regular live updates about everything their child is doing with the ability to download photos and videos. From health events to observations of playtime to excursions, parents love being connected to their child’s day.

Photo and video observation capabilities

Include up to 16 photos in a carousel observation (photo cycle) or up to 30sec for a video observation. Easily add titles, descriptions, future planning ideas and dates, learning outcomes from not only approved learning frameworks but also childhood theorists and the NQS.

Custom free form planning

Sick of templated planning limitations? So were we, so we built a free form drag and drop planning builder. Do it your way, without imposing restrictions from your software provider.

At home learning plans

Create comprehensive lesson plans with video for parents through tailored child portfolios. Guide parents on themes, instructions, tasks and examples on what to do with their children’s learning activities. Includes two-way messaging for logging daily progress.

Portfolio categorisations

View individual child portfolios, educator portfolios and room portfolios. Great for that end of year scrapbook for parents as their child's learning is all in one place.

Virtual learning

Provide unique learning experiences to children no matter where they are, using live stream features and multiple parent engagement touchpoints.
