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 ».
As part of the wider improvements we are making to the ‘Analysis’ section on Tapestry, we have now added a group view for the Development Matters Statement Screen. Which will hopefully allow you to complete your data analysis more quickly.
You can find this screen by going to the Snapshots section, and in the ‘Development Matters Statements’ box click on the ‘Group View’ button. We would love to hear your thoughts on this new screen on this post here.
