Learning journey


Every child is allocated to a 'Key Person'. This staff member is responsible for your child's progress and will compile a learning journey of your child’s time with us for you to keep once they move on to school.

Progress is assessed by observation and recorded using “Tapestry” an online learning journey which builds a very special record of a child’s experiences, development and learning journey through their early years. We use photos, videos, and diary entries, along with the child’s parents or carers, to ‘weave’ the story of the child and how they are growing and developing. The Tapestry platform then works seamlessly to keep these memories as a permanent record of each child’s unique journey. These observations will be used as a basis for planning the next steps for each child’s learning and development and are available for discussion with families at any time. A transfer record is also prepared for school or transfer to another nursery.
