All children attending First Steps have a personal on-line Learning Journey which records photos, observations, asessments and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage, to build up a record of your child’s experiences during their time with us.
Each Tapestry account has its own database. Filenames are encoded for uploaded, videos and images, making Tapestry a safe and secure on-line Learning Journey tool.
The benefits to yourselves from Tapestry being on-line means you will have secure access (via a website which you login to using your email address and a password) to your child’s Learning Journey and, in addition to viewing our contributions, we encourage you to add to it by uploading photos and comments, or commenting on observations made by First Steps staff.
First Steps has their own secure Tapestry website, which once you have provided us with an e-mail address we will be able to set you up with an account.
Each child will have the documentaion emailed to their main carers email address with their Learning Journey on at the end of their time with us. You will then have the opportunity to download thelearning journal to your own devices.
In order for your child’s Learning Journey to be created please give us permission by completing the attached slip. In addition, if you provide your E-mail address we will set up an account enabling you to access your child’s learning journey via the secure Tapestry website. (Please note each parent only has access to his or her own child’s Learning Journey)
If you have any questions or queries about the on-line Learning Journeys please do not hesitate to aspeak to a member of the team or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
