Observing with Tapestry

Observing using Technology tapestry training Observing children and planning around their individual needs is an essential part of the EYFS and crucial to your Ofsted rating. Practitioners need to be aware of the characteristics of effective learning and understand how these relate to observing children’s progress in their learning and development.

They need to know and understand when and what should be observed and importantly what should be assessed.  If you are using an electronic recording system such as Tapestry to track your observations then you need to make sure you are using it to its full potential to track the children and inform next steps.

This Observing with systems such as Tapestry course will enable You:

  • To identify what information is useful to record when observing a child.
