All children attending Lanterns Nursery School (including Bumblebees) have a personal online Learning Journey which records photos, observations and comments in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage. This enables us to build up a record of each child’s learning and achievements during their time with us.

We, as well as a number of other nurseries and schools, use a software programme called Tapestry.

When your child first starts at Lanterns you will be asked to complete the necessary permission slip and consent form (copies of which can be found below). Once you have completed and returned the forms your child’s journal will be set up as will your parent account. You have the option to add other authorised users such as grandparents and other carers. You will then receive an email each time a new entry is made into the journal and are encouraged to include your own entries in response to Lanterns observations or regarding home learning and development.

You can access the Tapestry log on page by clicking on the icon below.




Please find below the various documents you will be given as well as instruction booklets:

If you have any questions regarding the use of Tapestry or encounter any problems when using Tapestry please contact Lisa Johnson on 01962 860393.

If you have any questions regarding the content of your child’s journal please speak to your key person or class teacher.
