FlexiBuzz is an app based, private messaging platform used to broadcast information to the kindergarten community. This suite of notification and messaging tools make it easy to deliver timely information between parents, teachers and the committee.

At Nagle Pre-School, many of our day-to-day communications to parents are via FlexiBuzz. All new parents are informed on how to use the app once their child is enrolled.

What are the features of FlexiBuzz?

Reporting Absences

If your child is to be absent, please use the "Absence Form” on the Nagle FlexiBuzz home page to communicate this to teachers. This allows staff to officially log the absence. The one2one Chat feature is not appropriate for communicating absences.

One2One Chat

Chat is a messaging system that allows class teachers and parents to communicate directly in real time. The Chat is ideal for day-to-day matters like your child’s interests, general wellbeing or experiences during the class session. Only you and your class teacher have ability to communicate directly to each other. That said, the feature is set up so discussions are visible to the assistant teachers. This is for cases of staff leave, but it also creates economies in information sharing between staff.
For private matters you wish only the lead teacher to know about, please speak to them directly or email them.

Automated Flash Notifications

When you set up the FlexiBuzz app on your portable device, you will automatically receive live notifications from Nagle when posts or one2one chats go live.
Please note: Any parents who have set up FlexiBuzz ONLY on their DESKTOP will not receive the live flash notifications. They would need to log in manually to check for communications. Only by installing the FlexiBuzz App on a portable device can you access this feature.

Calendar

The integrated calendar feature enables you to save kindergarten events to your device.

What about security?

When you use FlexiBuzz you will notice a padlock appears in your browser. This is because FlexiBuzz uses a technology called SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). This means that your FlexiBuzz session is encrypted and secure.
