Welcome to the FSF

For over ten years the FSF has been a platform for a passionate and vibrant community of EYFS professionals, including nursery practitioners, childminders, reception teachers, advisers and consultants, and educators and writers.

We're proud of the quality of our conversation and support here, and our ethos (exemplified by the Lessons from Geese video - link below and to your right) of courtesy and mutual respect, even while arguing from very different points of view.

What if it was possible to create records of observations instantly?

To add notes and images and have them immediately available to any authorised person as part of the complete story of the child's life at their nursery. To have parents able to view and comment on these special moments, and to be able to contribute their own stories of the child's life outside nursery?

Well, we believe you can.
This is what we call Tapestry »

You can keep up-to-date with all updates added to Tapestry from the change log ».
We are currently working on improving the analysis section on Tapestry; you can read all about the changes from this forum post here.

Two of the changes we have already added are the ability to add up to four periods on the child comparison screen and we have also added to the thoroughness child picker screen the total number of observations a child has for the period you are viewing.
