At Papakidz preschool, we use a program called Tapestry to help us create the children’s learning journals.
Tapestry is about capturing the magic of a child’s early years experience, and recording children’s learning in a way that is both secure and that we can share with their parents.
Using a personal and secure username and password given to you by our admission team, you will be able to view all of your children’s observations, photographs and even video during their time with us. This will enable you to follow your child’s individual progress closely and you can reflect upon their achievements with your child. You can add your own input from home about which activities your child really enjoyed and record your child’s learning outside the classroom, to help support your child’s development and allow us to ensure your child is getting an education tailored to their individual needs.
Benefits of Tapestry
With the traditional scrap book style of learning journal you would often only be able to have very limited access to the child’s journal and would be reliant on small amounts of feedback from staff members while at the preschool. Tapestry, however, allows you to instantly access your child’s learning journals from home meaning you can stay up to date with everything your child has been learning and doing at Papakidz preschool. Tapestry is available through your phone, tablet or computer giving you the freedom to view your child’s progress at preschool whenever you want.
Tapestry helps to build strong partnerships between parents and the staff by giving you the option of interacting with the observations made by our staff and by allowing you to make your own observations from home. You can help supplement your child’s learning at preschool by sharing what you get up to at home.
