Tapestry – An Online Learning Journal
At Parkroyal Pre-school we have chosen to use an online system of recording your child’s learning in pre-school.
Tapestry is a website which can be accessed on a computer or laptop, and also on any Apple or Android device such as a tablet or smart phone. We have chosen this company because they are a secure and also exciting way of keeping track of your child’s development and their time with us.
Instead of using the old paper book style way of recording, we will be able to instantly upload photos, videos and observations of your children. You are then emailed to alert you that something new has been added to your child’s Learning Journal and can log on and view what your child has been up to. A massive advantage of this system is that you can instantly add your own comments to entries, and can show your child’s online book to members of the family who would not usually be able to attend parent’s evenings at pre-school. Your child’s key person will also post an end of term summary every half term and a target for your child for the next half term.
The safeguarding of our children is very important to us. Everything that is added to Tapestry will be added to our pre-school account and can only be viewed by pre-school staff that use the system, and also yourself, using your own log on. You will only have access to your child’s own book and this cannot be seen by other parents.
We have created the following documents to help parents access their child’s tapestry account.
