A secure online learning journal helping staff and families celebrate their children’s learning and development

Tapestry is used when a child is in the EYFS, also known as Class 1. It is used specifically for 'wow' learning moments and for monitoring key development points throughout EYFS. It builds a very special record of a child’s experiences, development and learning journey through their early years.

Using photos, videos, and diary entries, teaching staff, along with parents/carers, ‘weaves’ the story of the child and how they are growing and developing. The Tapestry platform then works seamlessly to enable these memories to be kept as a permanent record of each child’s unique journey. All information held in the platform is stored securely and can be downloaded and shared as required. Parents or carers are able to view their child’s progress and how much fun they’re having, whilst also uploading their own comments and media.

The communication between staff and parents that Tapestry enables, helps build a shared understanding of how every child can reach their full potential, from birth to the end of EYFS. The Tapestry online learning journal is also available as an easy-to-use, secure app, meaning capturing key learning moments, and videoing milestones are even easier for parents.

There are no set number of entries per child per week. Some weeks your child will have four or five observations, other weeks they may only have one.
