The online/tablet-based approach to creating reports and observations is helping us reduce our carbon footprint by removing the need for piles of paper. It also saves you as parents having to take home endless day reports!
“EyLog is a fantastic new system that I have used both as a parent and a member staff. As a parent I can easily access my child’s daily diary, comment on activities and milestones he’s achieved at nursery and add all the fun learning he and I do at home to share with my child’s key worker, all from the EyLog app. From the perspective of being a staff member it is really exciting to receive so much interaction from parents. The children’s learning journals are starting to look really colourful with all the achievements the children are making” Sharon Styles – Assistant Manager
