West Hallam Village Pre-School


At West Hallam Village Pre-school, we create individual ‘online learning journeys’ for your child through a piece of educational software called ‘Tapestry’. By logging on with a secure username and password you will be able to view all your children’s observations, photographs and even video from their time at Pre-school.


This will enable you to follow your child’s individual progress closely and you can reflect upon their achievements with your child. You can add comments so that we as a staff find out about which activities your child really enjoyed and the learning they get up to at home.


Staff will reference your child’s learning to the EYFS profile so you will know which area of learning your child is achieving in and the age-band they were working in for that activity. All this information is stored on a highly secure server which is monitored closely.


E-safety is extremely important to us at West Hallam Village Pre-School; therefore, we ask you to sign a permission form and an agreement for us to create a Tapestry account for your child, when your child starts with us.


We know how much you like to see your child coming home from Pre-School proudly clutching their most recent piece of work. Therefore, we will photograph the pieces of work we need to keep as evidence and then it will come home with your child.


We will provide log in details and Tapestry guides to help you to access your account and child’s learning journey. If you require further support with viewing your child’s learning journey, please let a member of staff know and we can help you.
