What is Tapestry

Tapestry is an easy-to-use online learning journal, Tapestry helps educators and parents to record, track and celebrate children's progress in early years education.

Brierley Playmates is a fun-packed and busy environment. From messy play and first steps to learning phonics and new games, there's so much for children to do, learn and take in.

Tapestry enhances this special time, helping practitioners to capture children's experiences as well as monitor development and learning. This unique journal is shared online with parents, who are able to see special moments and view their child's progress.

We upload documentary evidence including rich media, photographs and video recordings, to chart your child's progress. Every entry helps to create a complete story of a child's time at our pre-school.
