At Brookside pre-school we use the online learning journey system called TAPESTRY to document your child’s learning and development while with us.

All our staff, including your child’s key person use a combination of photos and observations of your child at play to record and monitor their development and progress. These are stored in your child’s online learning journey.

Families are sent an email which will prompt them to set up a TAPESTRY login and password which allows access to your child’s learning journey. The system also enables parents and carers to send messages directly to your child’s key person and/or manager regarding your child’s time at pre-school or significant events or achievements outside pre-school, such as swimming lessons or family holidays.

Staff will link their observations to areas of learning and suggest how your child can be supported in their next stage of learning. It is beneficial for parents to read this so that children can be supported at home too and work towards the same goals.

There is a great Tapestry App for iPhone and Android making it easier to access notifications and enabling parents to upload photographs straight from their phone/tablet on to Tapestry. *

***please note that we use Tapestry to communicate parent newsletters, messages and events, therefore, it is vital that parents use our Tapestry system. If you have difficulties accessing the internet or our online system, then please discuss this with the manager.

Once children leave the setting Parents/carers can download, save or print their child’s Tapestry Journal.
