Online Learning Journal
At Kings worthy Pre-school we keep parents updated through Tapestry.
Tapestry is a secure online Learning Journal to record photos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, to build up a record of your child’s experiences during their time with us. This system allows us to work with parents and carers to share information and record the children’s play and learning in and outside of the Preschool.
Tapestry provides each individual child with their own Learning Journal held online. Parents and carers are given their own log-in using their email and password (which is pre-set by us but can be changed by you to make it more secure). All our staff are given a secure log-in. They can then upload observations, photos or videos; recording children’s achievements and assessing their learning in reference to the EYFS curriculum.
Parents can change their settings so that an email is then automatically generated informing them when an observation has been added so they can have a look and add any comments of their own.
As parents/carers you both can access Tapestry by letting our office manager Rachael know any e-mail addresses that you wish to link with the system (limited to 2 per child).
Tapestry enables us to track and analyse the progress of individual children and whole groups. It facilitates effective planning on both an individual and group basis to ensure children’s learning is tailored to their individual requirements. It also greatly reduces the time staff spend recording written observations and sticking them into traditional paper learning journals, giving the staff more time to spend with your child.
