Online Learning Journal

Tapestry is an online learning journal for children that’s secure and has an easy format to access.

At PolkaDots, we use Tapestry’s online platform to record children’s learning and development by uploading photos and adding comments. We can then share their progress with you, the parents. Each parent can log on and see their child’s individual observations and progress.

It’s an exciting way for us to share your child’s learning and progress with you on a weekly basis, in a secure and easy to access format. Tapestry is hosted in the UK on secure servers. You can visit the Tapestry website at https://tapestry.info/ for further information. 

Devices supported by Tapestry’s online platform…

  • Laptop/PC
  • Smartphone
  • Tablet
  • Any other internet enabled device

Learning Journey

Each child will have a personal on-line Learning Journey which records photos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Parents will have secure access (via an individual and personal email address and password) to only your child’s Learning Journey. In addition to viewing our observations, you will be able to add and make your own comments on your child’s observations. Your child’s key worker will explain the process of how to access your child’s learning journal.

Key Person

Every child at PolkaDots Nurseries is assigned a Key Person right from their first day. Your child’s Key Person will explain the process of how to access your child’s learning journal. They will also update your child’s Tapestry journal with photos and records. Their close relationship puts them in a unique position to make observations relevant to that PolkaDots child’s progress.
