Tapestry

At Venn Boulevard Nursery, we leverage the power of technology to enhance communication and collaboration between our nursery and parents. We utilise a secure online learning journal platform called Tapestry to record and share your child’s progress during their time at our nursery.

Tapestry serves as a valuable link between the home and nursery, providing a convenient and secure platform for exchanging information, photos, and updates. Through Tapestry, we are able to share important news, events, and announcements with you, ensuring that you are well-informed and engaged in your child’s nursery experience. Likewise, you have the opportunity to share photos and information from home, allowing us to gain a deeper understanding of your child’s interests, experiences, and milestones.

When your child begins their journey at Venn Boulevard Nursery, you will receive a unique password that grants you access to your child’s dedicated and secure Tapestry account. This personalised account enables you to log in and view your child’s individual learning journal, filled with observations, assessments, and photographs capturing their progress and achievements at nursery. It serves as a digital record of their growth and development, offering valuable insights into their learning journey.

We believe that open and transparent communication is key to fostering a strong partnership between parents and our nursery. Tapestry provides a secure and convenient platform for sharing and celebrating your child’s accomplishments, enabling us to work together to support their ongoing development.

At Venn Boulevard Nursery, we value the importance of involving parents in their child’s education and creating a sense of connection and collaboration. Through Tapestry, we aim to strengthen the bond between home and nursery, ensuring that you remain an active participant in your child’s learning experience.
