The school chose Office 365 to help streamline the management of its internal documents and the school's intranet to generate strong communication between teachers and parents. "Parents of preschoolers need to know that their children spend their days safely and purposefully all while having fun," said Austeja Landsbergiene, Ph.D., founder and director of Vaikystes Sodas. "The involvement of parents in the education process can only be ensured through daily communication, liaison and information sharing. The possibility to find all the information that they need, and to check it virtually anywhere, anytime on a computer, cellphone or tablet, will allow parents to be significantly more involved."
