Our Learning Journey Book

During your child’s time with us in the Nursery and Reception, they will have a Learning Journey book. We encourage you to add your voice to this as well the children adding theirs. Within this book, the staff at Little Gems are recording some of the ways in which your child is travelling along a Learning Journey which is unique and special to them. Within the Nursery, this will be online through Tapestry and you will be able to connect with what your child is doing on a regular basis, through the app.


The book celebrates your child’s achievements through photos, written observations and examples of their work.


Celebrate children’s achievements throughout their time within the Foundation Stage.

 Serve as a reminder of the wonderful experiences that they have. Monitor the skills that children are developing. Enable staff to plan effectively in order to meet children’s learning needs.
