Preschool website link ideas


Cait
 Share

Recommended Posts

I'm currently helping a local Preschool build a website as they've not had one before and see this as a useful contact with a more professional 'front' than their current Facebook page.

 

I'm getting on well, but I'd like to create an area where parents can download useful information like potty training, speech concerns etc. Have any of you wonderful people already done this, I need not reinvent the wheel if so!

 

Please can you suggest some good links for me?

 

Very many thanks

Eric for toileting! my goto favourite!!! Woodland trust for things to do.

 

Tips for website...try to just get the basics done and published...then you can start playing a twiddling! Put a counter on..it really shows you how useful it is. Put one page a side for dates only. Get someone to take some good quality photos. Keep it simple!!

DON'T PANIC! ...there is always a back button! and make sure you save what you like as you go just in case!!!

Thanks FM, it's the third one I've done, over the years. I just thought it might be nice to have some useful info for parents to download. The site is essentially complete, just waiting for policy updates really, so spuddling.

Yes it's free. I've used Weebly again. You have to pay for the domain name of course, but everything else is free. You can upgrade to a paid site if you want to, but unless you want a really complicated site, there's no need.

There are loads you could add, but I keep it fairly basic. In addition to the couple I stated I have one on chocking, biting, tantrums, baby and toddler safety, separation anxiety, bed wetting, and why play is important. I add something if it crops up, such as pinching.

Is it a free site Cait? If so what have you used?

I built a website last year. I was going to use Weebly, but for some reason I've now forgotten, I decided to us a Wordpress free site instead. Maybe there was a better range of appropriate templates. The free sites mean that you'll end up with a clumsy domain name like tantrumtowers.weebly.com or meltdownmayhem.wordpress.com. If you're using the site for promotional reasons it looks better if you pay for a domain name. It goes without saying that I have a very long, clumsy domain name - every pound a prisoner me.

These sound good, the sort of thing I'm after. Can you remember where you found them, or have you written them yourself?

My sister used Wix for a while, but has gone back to Weebly.

 

The domain was $41 for 2 years.

There is now an English based version of the site!! I like the add on's it offers including a good range of apps that are helpful and you can send newsletters (shout outs) and create mailing lists and shopping online too!

I use Weebly. Have to say if I can set up a website anyone can! I found it quite easy and am really pleased with the results. Our Ofsted inspector was very impressed as well, do that was a bonus.

Really......

 

Am I the only person/setting without a website?

 

Do I really need a website?

No :lol: :lol: :lol:

 

But we do both have a nice supply of stationary :lol: :lol:

Phew!

 

Not really sure whether or not I need a website - would provide 'easy access' for new parents I suppose - Ofsted would be impressed possibly/maybe/do I care :ph34r:

 

Something else to think about.......

We haven't got one Sunny. Problem is that everyone else around us has got one, and Facebook. Parents do ask for details. We don't have any Internet access so just another job to do at home! Unless I can persuade a lovely committee member to take control of it. Oh, but can I let go of that control?????? Don't know. .........
