Platinum Learning Link™ Daily Communications Keeps Parents in Touch

Tadpoles and The Platinum Learning Link connect parents to the classroom
We place great emphasis on open communication with our parents. Our Platinum Learning Link™ powered by the Tadpoles electronic daily communication tool is a progressive method of keeping parents in touch with their children during school hours. Through Platinum Learning Link™, parents receive daily complimentary emails that outline their child’s learning, eating, sleeping, exercise, and toilet activities (as appropriate). The emails are private and secure. Parents can securely:

  • Receive photos, videos, and notes by email
  • Receive emergency alerts by text message
  • View their child’s history using the app
  • Mark their child out sick or on vacation using the app

At every level, we commit to supporting our children and families and value their safety and privacy. To learn more about TadpolesTM and their data security, please review their privacy policy here.
