Tapestry – Online Learning Journey

At Bertrum House most of our nursery families live locally in Balham and Tooting and will have a good sense of their child’s progress through daily conversations with the teachers. Despite our open door policy, at Bertrum House we want to use technology to foster an even closer relationship with our families. We create an online learning journey using Tapestry for all of our children. Parents are able to access and contribute to tapestry through the webiste or a mobile app. Teacher’s update Tapestry with images and videos of the children and parents’ can contribute their own observations.

The children benefit from a truly co-ordinated and responsive partnership between the Nursery and home.

  • Helps our teachers to capture children’s experiences as well as monitor development and learning
