Tapestry is about capturing the magic of a child's early years experiences and recording children's learning in a way that is easy and fun. We use this online platform to share your child's learning with you at home and for our families to share their child's home activities with the school.

How to log in:

You can access Tapestry by either downloading the app or by using the following web link:
