The Learning Journey
Learning Journals and special books allow early years settings a way to record the special moments of the children within their care, and to keep parents involved in a partnership as their children blossom and grow.
Traditionally, these individual records have been collected in scrapbooks or binders, building up into a treasured memoir that children can take with them when they leave for the next stages of their journey.
Staff within the Early Years use Tapestry, which allows them to communicate each observation directly to the parent. Using this system, the staff are able to share photographs, written observations and videos.
The online journal is invaluable in sharing information that demonstrates the children reaching important milestones.
You can find more information on Tapestry on their website.
You can also find further information on how we use Tapestry across our settings here.
