Enrolment form

Basic Details

We need some details about your child and family. We have a legal obligation to collect and process this information in accordance with The Early Years Foundation Stage (Welfare Requirements) Regulations 2012 and therefore we do not require your consent for the first section of this form. Where information to be supplied is voluntary or where we do need consent this is identified. The information provided will be kept in paper form and used for the purpose of maintaining appropriate contact details and for the safety and well-being of your child.

Basic Details

Emergency Contacts

Emergency Contact Details

Please provide the names and contact details of 2 people (other than parents/guardians) who we can contact in case of an emergency. NOTE: It is your responsibility to ensure these people are happy for us to contact them and to hold their details

Security Details

A password system operates in our setting. A secure password is required and should be used by emergency contacts and persons authorised to collect your child. Ideally this should be one word and something that is easily memorable. Please do not use obvious things such as middle names. The password is required from anyone collecting your child. If they do not have the password we will not release your child to them.

We have the safety and well-being of the children in mind at all times and we are sure that you will appreciate that persons known to you are strangers to us and we do need means of identifying those you have authorised to collect your child (either authorised or emergency contacts) when you are unable to.

We as a setting and especially your child’s key person will be familiar with you but we do not always have the opportunity to meet both parents. This is also true of your nominated emergency contacts and authorised persons. We therefore request that should anyone unknown to us be collecting your child that you inform us in advance and if possible show us a photograph to enable us to identify them when they collect your child.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why use an online system?
Hand writing observations, printing out photos, cutting out and sticking all of these into a paper book is very time consuming. By taking photos and videos that can be instantly uploaded this increases the time that staff can spend with your children, supporting their learning.

We were also impressed with the way in which parents can instantly see what their child have been up to and can also share it with family members such as grandparents.

How do I get onto the system?
If you consent to us using Tapestry for your child, the pre school will set up an account for you and provide you with log on details.

Tapestry can be accessed online at: http://eyfs.info/tapestry-info/introduction

It is available as a free app from the Apple Store and also on Android devices.

We will ask you to provide us with an email address so that we can set you up a personal account. This will be a secure way of logging in, and you will only be able to see your own child’s book.

I don’t have a computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. How can I access Tapestry?
If you are unable to access the Internet on any device at home, then you will still be able to access your child’s book by arranging a mutually convenient time with your child’s key person to come into the pre school. You will be provided with access to your child’s account and support if needed.

I am not very confident with computers or the Internet. How can I access Tapestry?
One of the reasons for us choosing Tapestry was ease of use. It is a very easy system to use, but should you have any problems, a member of the pre school will be happy to support you.

Why do you need my email address?
Your email address is required in order to set you up with access to your child’s account. It is to ensure security on the site and also so that we can email you when a new entry has been added for your child.
