At Kilmacolm Nursery Class, your child’s learning will be recorded using the online Learning Journals system. This means that you will be able to access your child’s learning at a time that suits your family and lifestyle, as long as you have an internet connection. It can be accessed on a phone, tablet, iPad or laptop, as well as many other devices. You will have the option to comment on the content that has been added, and you will also be able to add photos of activities your child has taken part in at home.
Below is some information relating to the Learning Journals system, there is also a link to our parents leaflet.
The nursery will email you with details of your username and password and a link to our Learning Journals website, the website address is also below. You are required to set up a password which should be a minimum of 8 characters, at least one of which must be upper case and it should also contain at least one number. You will then be asked to choose a 4 digit PIN. If you forget your username, password or PIN, please get in touch with the Nursery and we will send you a reset email.
App for Parents
For ease of use, the Learning Journals system uses an app which is available for free on the Google Play store, or the Apple App Store, just search for ‘Learning Journals’ then proceed to log in with your details. Once installed, the app can be configured to allow notifications, this way you will be notified any time new content is added to your child’s Learning Journal.
The system is very secure. For the techy types among you, the connection is made using a secure server holding a SSL certificate. (Meaning the address starts with https and carries the padlock symbol.) You will be the only one outside of the nursery that can view your child’s profile and you will access it with a unique username as well as a password and PIN that you create.
If you have any questions at all, or need any technical support, please get in touch with us.
