We have recently purchased ‘Tapestry’, which will help us to record and track your child’s learning and development and to share their achievements with you through online learning journals. Some of you may already be familiar with this web-based package: I know that many of our local pre-schools and child minders have been using it successfully with their children and families. Tapestry apps are available for smartphones and tablets, making it very easy for you to be able to log on and keep up to date with your child’s development and learning.
By logging on with a secure username and password you will be able to view some of your child’s observations, photographs and video from their time in Nursery and Reception. You will also be able to add comments or upload photos of things that your child has done at home. If your child spends time with a child minder who also uses Tapestry, the child minder can add to the same journal, creating a rounded picture of your child’s development.
We ask that parents and carers keep to the following guidelines when using Tapestry.
As a parent I will…
Not publish any of my child’s observations, photographs or videos on any social media site.
Keep the login details within my trusted family.
