Now technology is coming to the rescue!  We are using a system called eyLog (for e arly y ears Log ) which allows staff to capture a photo, video clip or voice recording as well as written notes using a tablet computer and assign this to one or more children. These observations from staff members are then uploaded to a secure web-based learning journey to which you as a parent would also have access too! Welcome to the world of online learning journeys! We believe that using online learning journeys allows both a rich body of evidence to support our partnership with parents, to help us plan for individual children’s development and of course a wonderful keepsake for you to share with your child. No data is stored either on the tablets or on the nursery computer.  As soon as an observation has been recorded and uploaded to the eyLog server, it is automatically deleted from the tablet. All data is held in encrypted form and is accessed subject to a secure login and password. The only people who can access a child’s learning journey are the relevant nursery staff (manager or key persons) and you, the child’s parents. In our opinion, the application not only permits a richer learning journey than its paper equivalent, but also offers a more secure way to record and share these learning journeys.  The eyLog website ( https://eylog.co.uk ) has more information as well as a list of FAQs.  Please have a look to find out more about this exciting development.
“Partnerships with parents are exceptional. The manager and staff successfully communicate with parents and involve them in their children's learning. Parents appreciate and recognise the speed at which the manager and staff accurately assess children's individual needs.” OFSTED 2020
