At Rising Stars Romford we use a fantastic online system called Tapestry to record and store all our daily observations and assessments relating to each child.
The observations are made using photos and videos to show the learning that has being taking place and each observation is assessed and linked to learning objectives; this allows our parents to see what skill their child is developing and where they are at chronologically in their learning.
This is a safe and secure system and one that enables parents and carers to access their child’s learning journey at anytime, anywhere from a handy free app or website; families with relations in other countries have found this an invaluable way of sharing their child’s learning journey with distant loved ones.
Parents can enjoy looking at the observations with their child and can talk about the activities together at home. Parents can also comment on observations and even post their own adventures or wow moments into the Learning Journal to share with the nursery staff. This two way sharing of your child’s achievements, next steps and experiences is absolutely vital to providing the very best care and early education. This means that the parent partnership is strong as staff are able to build upon experiences and skills shared from parents at home much more readily within the setting via Tapestry.
The staff and our parents absolutely love Tapestry and we are sure that you will too.
