Tapestry keeps you in touch with your child’s day where ever you are
As parents, the first day of handing over your child to the care of another can be an emotional time. As your child adjusts to experiences without you at their centre, most parents continue to want to share in these times. Tapestry facilitates this, by enabling a personal journal, or diary, to build over time. Photographs, videos and notes of special moments are not only recorded, but can be made available regularly and often immediately to you.
Use iOS or Android apps to receive new entries in your child’s journal celebrating their achievements and exciting activities, individually or with their new friends and the educators looking after them. Contribute to this growing journal by commenting on the journal entries, or even adding your own. Let your child’s teachers know what your child loves doing at home by sending photos and videos back, helping them understand their development at home. In this way, share the excitement of the growth of your young child with the educators who are an important part of his or her life.
Also share these special moments with your child at any time by logging into their Learning Journal, using your own password. In addition to the simple pleasure of seeing your child’s enthusiasm in describing their day, talking together about the pictures and clips in their journal helps to develop your child’s language skills and build their self-esteem.
When your child leaves their first early education centres, your educators can provide you with a copy of their Tapestry learning journal to keep and treasure, as an electronic file or paper copy, as well as enabling you to download and keep the videos that have given you an insight into their first independent experiences.Tell your nursery about Tapestry
