We currently use Tapestry to assess all our children in Nursery, Reception and Year One
What is Tapestry?
Tapestry is a secure online Learning Journal to record photos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, to build up a record of your child’s experiences during their time with us. This system allows us to work with parents and carers to share information and record the children’s play and learning in and outside of the classroom.

How does Tapestry work?
Tapestry provides each individual child with their own Learning Journal held online. Parents and carers are given their own log-in using their email and password (which is pre-set by us but can be changed by you to make it more secure). All our staff are given a secure log-in. They can then upload observations, photos or videos; recording children’s achievements and assessing their learning in reference to the EYFS curriculum.
Parents can change their settings so that an email is then automatically generated informing them when an observation has been added so they can have a look and add any comments of their own.
Who can access Tapestry?
As parents/carers you both can access Tapestry by letting Nursery know any e-mail addresses that you wish to link with the system.
Can other relatives join in Tapestry?
You can choose to share your log in details with extended family if you wish, so they can see your child’s Learning Journal. If you would like to add anyone then please email Beth Stickland at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the name of your child, their class, the relationship to the child, the adults name, the email address to be added.
