How to Take an Observation

In this example we use a child from Scotland following the Curriculum For Excellence – Early Level to show you how to take and publish an observation, but the process is exactly the same for other frameworks.

How To Take a Story

Stories are a fantastic way to quickly share content with parents when you don’t want to create an observation linked to a framework or curriculum. It might be a settling in story or a birthday party. Maybe it’s your sports day or some other event that everyone is involved in. Here we show you how it’s done and also a tip on how to use stories to get parents to contribute more.

How to Add and Delete Children and Parents

A quick and easy method you can use to deactivate and then delete child profiles, staff and parent accounts.

How to Transfer and Merge Profiles

Sometimes you will need to transfer a profile from one nursery or school account to another. You might also have duplicate profiles that you need to merge together. We show you how to do that here in this easy to follow video.

How To Enter Starting Points or Baselines

Baselines and starting points are important as they can help you demonstrate clear development and progression. In this video we show how you can easily add comprehensive baselines and starting points for each child on any framework you have activated.

Built By A Nursery, For Nurseries

We know how difficult it is to provide children with the high standard of education and care that we all desperately want them to have. We opened our nursery in Edinburgh in 2010 and from day one we faced the same challenges and difficulties as thousands of other hard working educators in the UK.

We were short of time, short of money and short of staff. The thing that all nursery and school staff share and have plenty of is the desire to provide a great education and caring environment for their children.

That is exactly the philosophy that we still hold to at Learning Journals and every day is spent trying to work out ways we can make that goal easier to achieve for all our customers.
