CONNECTING WITH PARENTS
Shining Faces acknowledges the importance of communicating with parents. Our campus uses the Himama program for centralizing the communication between parent, teachers and the classroom. Our teachers communicate with parents daily via IPad and the Himama app. Reports, reminders, pictures and lesson overviews are sent to parents daily.
Himama is a secure, password protected portal that is not publicly accessible. Parents can only access their own child's classroom where they will receive daily pictures and information on their child's activities and involvement with their classmates.
Parents are encouraged to ask questions throughout the day utilizing this tool, and can expect to receive
reminders such as:
Your child needs more diapers
Today is Pajama day
riday is a school holiday
Shining Faces also use the Himama system for attendance management, scheduling and reporting. Digital daily sheets outlining meals, naps, and other pertinent information in Real-time photo, video and SMS text keeps the parental communication lines open.
Your child's safety is our primary concern. We have a locked down facility where access is gained through a personalized key fob provided to parents who's children are actively enrolled in our school. Visitors must use the intercom in the entry area, and we have a strict sign-out policy which requires proof of ID, and a verbal phone call verification if a relative or approved guardian is picking up your child. We also have cameras that buffer footage to capture the outdoor playground, front door, hallways and other areas. Once a parent has withdrawn their child from our facility, their Key Fob is deactivated.
Shining Faces has bollards protecting all the windows and doors in the front of the location and around the back fenced in area.
The outdoor play area is rubberized turf material and play mulch with safety in mind.
