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.

Consign paper scrapbooks and binders to the past.

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 ».
One of the new features that has recently been added is the ability to add observations for whole cohorts, or select children from a cohort. This is currently only available on the browser version of Tapestry, but we are working on adding this feature to the app as well.
To see this, you just need to add an observation and click on the Ďselect childrení button, from the top of the pop up you can choose to select children from the overall list, from groups, or now from cohorts.
