Newbyres Nursery use the Learning Journals online system rather than personal learning plans in the form of folders.

This means that as parents you can access your child’s profile any time you want, as long as you have an internet connection. If you don’t have an internet connection at home you are welcome to view your child’s profile from within the nursery by using our computer/tablets.

Learning Journals are going to enable your child’s keyworker to make observations of learning in a fraction of the time it would have taken previously.  This means they are going to have so much more time to play, teach and care for the children instead of filling out paperwork. It’s also extremely environmentally friendly too!

You are also going to have much easier access to the development and progress of your child, and it will be easier for you to contribute too!
