Storypark at Wee Nippers

We use Storypark badge 400x400In October 2015 we launched Storypark online learning portfolios for Wee Nippers Mosgiel. Wee Nippers Invercargill followed in 2017. We will still have our paperbased learning journals. However because of its online format, Storypark makes sharing of information between home and Wee Nippers, parents and whanau and teachers more immediate.

Parents and whanau have special insight into their child’s development and personality and can share valuable information as well as giving teachers feedback on the learning and adventures that their children are experiencing while with us at Wee Nippers.
