To ensure that parents have 24-hour access to their child’s learning and development records, Wiggles and Giggles has invested in an online learning journal called Tapestry. The software helps our practitioners monitor your child’s experiences, development and learning goals so they are able to plan for each individual child’s needs.
This interactive monitoring tool works with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curricula to formally assess how your child is progressing during their time at Wiggles and Giggles. Traditionally, these development logs would have been in the form of a scrapbook or in a ring binder making them hard to share. As Tapestry is online Wiggles and Giggles can capture experiences and share these moments with parents throughout the day.
Tapestry also encourages parents to get involved. You can view, connect and contribute to your child’s learning journal using your personal log-in which can be accessed through a PC/laptop or mobile device: www.tapestryjournal.com.
Tapestry enables the Wiggles and Giggles team to formally record each child’s learning journey. Photographs and written observations are uploaded to the child’s personal journal alongside observations provided by parents to gather a holistic overview of the child and how they learn. Tapestry has proven popular with parents that are separated or for those that work away (in the Armed Forces for example).
When the time comes to say goodbye each child is presented with either a hard or digital copy of their journal as a keepsake.
