Tapestry builds a very special record of a child’s experiences, development and learning journey through their early years and primary education. Using photos, videos, and diary entries, a teacher or early years educator, along with the child’s parents or carers, and the child themselves if they’re ready, ‘weaves’ the story of the child and how they are growing and developing. The Tapestry platform then works seamlessly to enable these memories to be kept as a permanent record of each child’s unique journey. All information held in the platform is stored securely and can be downloaded and shared as required. Parents or carers are able to view their child’s progress, the activities provided for them, and how much fun they’re having, whilst also uploading their own comments and media.
The communication between staff and parents that Tapestry enables, helps build a shared understanding of how every child can reach their full potential, from birth to the end of primary school. The Tapestry online learning journal is also available as an easy-to-use, secure app, meaning capturing key learning moments, and videoing milestones are even easier.

We are very proud of the trust placed in us by so many education centres. We are currently custodians of the journals of 1,084,236 children across 18,327 accounts. 1,188,124 parents have access to these journals. Yesterday 105,884 observations were uploaded to our servers, containing 98,884 photographs and 8,243 videos, along with notes and educational assessments. Responsibility for the care of this data is something we care deeply about.
We have created a 3 minute survey with a focus on engaging with parents and carers. It explores how settings and schools connect with families, and support parents and carers who face barriers to engagement.
Responses are anonymous and we’ll share a summary of the results on the Tapestry and Foundation Stage Forum websites.
The results will be used to inform our article themes and to support our public relations and marketing, as well as to inform the way we develop Tapestry and the Foundation Stage Forum.
We would love to hear your views.
You’ll have the chance to win £25 of M&S vouchers.

An early years setting is one of the most important environments for young children to be in. Not only does it teach them to thrive, it also teaches them to learn fundamental tools that will help shape who they become later on in life. For many children, this is where...
It is no surprise to say that COVID-19 has had huge repercussions on education. Most conversations have been concerning children’s well-being and ‘missed’ learning, widening social inequality, as well as a huge digital divide.
