Rainbow Nurseries is going digital

Going Digital; a digital hub for your child’s progress.

From September 2019, we will be using Tapestry, an online system of recording your child’s learning at Rainbow. We have been working closely with our local schools, who also use the same system, and this will allow us to work more collaboratively with them when your child reaches the important transition to Reception.

Tapestry is a secure website which can be accessed easily from a computer / laptop as well as any Apple or Android device. We have chosen this platform as it is a secure and exciting way of keeping track of your child’s development during their time with us.

Instead of using our traditional green journals, we will be able to instantly upload photos and observations directly to your account giving instant gratification. We will set up the online journal as soon as we receive your written consent and I have attached a permission form for you to sign and return on the first day of term. An excellent advantage to this system is that you can upload any observations and comments yourself to your child’s account and you can share your child’s journal with the wider family through the secure portal.

Safeguarding our children is essential to us. Everything that is added to Tapestry will be added to our Rainbow account and can only be viewed by Rainbow staff directly involved with your child, as well as yourself and family members you nominate, using a personal password log in. Parents will only have access to their child’s journal and this cannot be seen by any other parent. It is crucial that parents do not share photos or videos from the journal on social media or other online platforms.

We are very excited about using this system at Rainbow and would like to invite you to find out more about it too. I have attached some frequently asked questions on a separate sheet.

We would also like to signpost you to Tapestry’s website where you will find lots of information and videos: http://eyfs.info/tapestry-info/introduction.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask.
