The Kubby House Child Care Centre recently acquired two new Apple iPads, donated by Peak Gold Mines, which will be of great help to Kubby staff.
Director of Kubby House, Brytt Moore said having an iPad available in each child care room will make things a lot easier.
“We will be able to send photos to the printer directly from the child care rooms which will maximise children supervision as no one will need to leave the room to print,” Ms Moore said.
Educators will also be able to quickly research topics that the children are interested in.
Ms Moore said the centre is hoping to get the School Bag app up and running so that parents can check up on what their child did that day from their own smart phones and the iPads will also help with that.
“At the moment the daily schedule for each child is printed and put in the rooms for parents to read when they pick their child up, but some parents work late and don’t do pick up so the School Bag app will be great for them,” Ms Moore said.
Peak Gold Mines’ environment and social responsibility advisor Jenna Marett said Peak were happy to donate the two iPads.
“The benefits of purchasing portable tablets makes sense and it is improvements like these which Peak Gold Mines are proud to be involved in.
“Kubby House provide a vital service to Cobar, providing care for over 90 children,” Ms Marett said.
