Welcome to Tapestry, a new way to keep your child’s observations and allow you to add some of your own. You will be able to follow your child’s learning at nursery at the touch of a button. Tapestry is an online learning journal designed to create records of observations instantly. Staff can add notes and images and have them immediately available to any authorised person as part of the complete story of the child's life at their nursery. Parents are also able to view and comment on these special moments, and to be able to contribute their own stories of the child's life outside nursery.
Tapestry uses a highly secure UK web based server to hold the children’s journals. The staff use IPads in the nursery to record observations of the children and upload photos and videos to their own individual profiles. The children’s journals can only be accessed on site by the staff from within the nursery and by you at home via a computer, IPad, Ipod or similar devise on which the Tapestry app must be downloaded. You will need an email address and will receive an activation email from Tapestry once your child's journal has been set up. You will then be able to access your child’s information on one of the previously mentioned devices.
You will be able to input into your child’s learning journal from home or when you are ‘out and about’ using the Tapestry app and will be able to view observations added by the staff in the nursery to your child’s journal.
