Building and maintaining a strong home–school connection and keeping you involved in your child’s day-to-day learning experiences at our school is of the utmost priority
Tadpoles links to our Curriculum and Teaching Strategies. The Tadpoles® program makes it easy for your child’s teacher to share real-time information about your child, giving you an unparalleled view into the caregiving events, learning experiences, discoveries, and accomplishments that make your child’s days with us so special.
Your child’s teacher will use tadpoles® to share photos, videos, and daily reports with you securely via email, online at www.tadpoles.com, or via the free tadpoles® Parent app for iOS or Android devices. As a parent or guardian, you can use tadpoles® to enter morning drop-off notes, mark your child absent, and share anything else you want your child’s teacher to know.
Each classroom will have an iPad mini® or iPod touch® that is solely for use with the tadpoles® software. Teachers will not have access to any other functionality on these dedicated devices, ensuring the privacy and security of all information exchanged on the platform. Only you and other designated contacts will receive information about your child. Rest assured that the confidentiality of all information will be maintained through the powerful security features built into the tadpoles® software.
You will need to create a tadpoles® account before you can begin using it.
Visit www.tadpoles.com and click the log in button near the upper-right corner.
Select “families click here”.
There are two ways to create an account:
a. If you have a Gmail account, select Google sign in and simply log in to your Gmail account.
b. If you don’t have a Gmail account, select tadpoles and enter the email address that is currently on file with our school. You will receive an email with a link that enables you to establish a password for your tadpoles® account.
You can use the same login information to access your account via the tadpoles® Parent mobile app. Download the app for free from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.
We are excited to use tadpoles® and look forward to strengthening our partnership with you. We are confident that you will find tadpoles® easy to use and welcome the insight it gives you into your child’s experiences here at our school. As always, we are happy to answer any questions and address any concerns you have about this new initiative.
Thank you for continuing to be a partner in your child’s learning!
