We have decided to create individual online ‘learning journeys’ for your child through a piece of educational software called ‘Tapestry’.
By logging on with a secure username and password you will be able to view all of your children’s observations, photographs and even video from their time at Nursery. This system will enable you to follow your child’s individual progress closely and you can reflect upon their achievements with your child. You can add comments so that we as a staff find out about which activities your child really enjoyed and the learning they get up to at home. Staff will reference your child’s learning to the EYFS profile so you will know which area of learning your child is achieving in and the age-band they were working in for that activity. All of this information is stored on a highly secure server which is monitored closely.
E-safety is extremely important to us at Happy Corner Nursery, therefore we ask you to provide information and to sign the agreement and other information to show that you understand and will agree with our guidelines.
For those families without internet access on a Friday afternoon we will set up some of the netbooks for you to view your child’s learning journey and if there is any other time you would like to view your child’s work please just ask your child’s teacher who will set it up ready for when you collect your child.
