Our friendly and highly visual dashboard allows you to see immediately the team you have available today, what events are upcoming and if there are any reminders that need your attention.

Integrates with Learning Journals
You don't have to worry about storage before capturing photos and videos of significant points of learning, or just sharing a nice moment with parents. We don't limit you on how many observations you can upload and your price won't increase - so feel free to go nuts!
Your 'at a glance' dashboard
EYFS? Curriculum For Excellence? SHANARRI? Something bespoke from your local authority? Whatever learning framework you use we likely have it already in our system available for you to create observations. If we don't, we'll add it for you. Our flexible system can be tailored to your needs.
Built in calendar
Let's say you're taking an observation of a group of children taking part in an activity together. The observations for each of these children will likely be broadly the same. You don't necessarily want to have to create an individual observation for each child. Creating a group observation with Learning Journals is simple - and if you want to you can go back and personalise each child's observation further.
Manage absences and sickness
As you create observations with Learning Journals you are automatically building up a picture of development and progress. You can call on this to help you make informed decisions about an individual child or group of children.
Who We Help
We originally designed Learning Journals to remove the need for the awful and time-consuming process of creating observations on paper - printing out photos, sticking them in jotters... Yuck!
Using Learning Journals means that practitioners can create beautiful, engaging and informative observations that connect to many different curricula and frameworks from around the world.
Very quickly we discovered that Learning Journals is extremely valuable parents. It lets them have a little window into a world that is so often obscured to them. By having access to observations like never before parents are kept more informed, more engaged and more invested in their connection with the nursery or school.
Childminders are a massively important part of the early years chain. Not every family wants, or can afford, to send their child to a private nursery. Local authority nurseries don’t always provide the flexibility that a busy family or parent needs. In thousands of cases childminders are the glue that keeps early years services together.
We are childcare professionals too - we know that every second that you aren't spending with the children is a second of their education wasted.
Let’s put the joy back into observing children! OP&L reduces paperwork and the need for collecting evidence. This give you time to spend interacting and playing with your children, not testing them.
