Online Profiles

Welland Pre-school prides itself on its high standards of recording and observing your child’s achievements and developments during their time at the setting, we now use the most up to date method, which is online profiles. The company we use is TAPESTRY.


Each pupil will have an online learning journal to record photos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, to build up a record of your child’s experiences during their time within a setting. The system will allow pre-school to work with parents and carers to share information and record the children’s play and learning in and outside of the classroom.

Each individual child will have their own learning journal held SECURELY online. Parents and carers will be given their own login using their email and password (which is pre-set by us but can be changed by you to make it more secure). All staff are given a secure pin login number.

They can record and assess children linking to the EYFS curriculum, uploading photo or video media.

Once saved and completed each observation is approved by the manager.

An email is then automatically generated to parents/carers set up to that child’s account and they are informed that an observation has been added so they can have a look and add any of their own comments to it.

As parents/carers you can choose who has access to your child’s e-learning journal.  If you would like both parents added or you wish to add grandparents/aunts/uncles etc. to the account please complete the additional person box on the permission form and they can be set up.  Only those people who you have given permission to have a login and password will be able to see your child’s journal.        

One of the many advantages of having an online profile system in place is that it allows parents to log in and see up to date pictures and observations of their child, it also enables the staff at Welland Pre-school to spend less time making notes and printing out photos and more time working with the children themselves which is great for all involved.

If you have any questions about these planned profiles please contact Welland Preschool.
