Newtowne School Testimonial

Post by Dani

On July 27, 2015

Danielle’s work has been an invaluable asset to our small non-profit school. Danielle recently rebuilt our school website, creating a home for our individual classroom blogs, and providing us with a very professionally designed tool to increase our outreach to families and other programs. Her dedication to meeting our timeline was exceptional and she worked tirelessly to troubleshoot many challenges in order to deliver us an excellent product.

Danielle’s commitment to this project was exceptional.

She took time to define for us the many options available, which allowed us an opportunity to uniquely tailor our product. She has a keen eye for aesthetics, and a deep understanding of how best layout and design can enhance performance. She was incredibly mindful of creating a smooth transition from our old site to our new one.

Our new site, coupled with our new social media connections, has reached many families and early childcare professional across the country, and worldwide in a matter of months. This allows us to continue to strengthen our work as we are now able to build connections where we can inspire, and be inspired, by schools that share our common philosophy. Danielle took the time to deepen her understanding of our unique program to reflect the beauty of our work in her product.

I would highly recommend Danielle to anyone looking for a fine tuned, highly professional and effective site for their business.

Director, Newtowne School

The Newtowne School in Cambridge, MA needed a WordPress site that had a separate blog for each classroom. The result was a network of 8 WordPress installations interconnected in one hub. This hub included a public portion for all to see, and a private portion for only parents or family members to see. The classrooms could easily blog and each classroom had a distinct, yet maintained a similar look-and-feel throughout the site. Integrated in the site was a calendar feature of events and special dates that the Director updated as needed.

Custom Documentation & Videos

When the site was finished, I created custom instructional videos for the Newtowne School teaching staff. I developed this comprehensive web site network using WordPress 4.0 with a multi-site system of blogs. Each classroom has their own blog and the administrator has a public blog. Essentially, this school network is 6 independent blogs all password protected for parents and family.

This video steps through the process of adding a post, an image with a caption, a gallery, tags, category, and a featured image. All in under 10 minutes.

If your school would like a similar network of class blogs, please do not hesitate to contact me.
