The Journey tab

Your child's Journey tab is where you will find all the observations of your child's learning and development. The observations may be written, a photograph, a video, or a combination. Staff may link these to areas of the curriculum followed in your setting, and may add next steps for your child. You can 'like' these with the heart icon, and add comments.

Adding your own observations of your child

Hearing about what your child is achieving whilst at nursery, and how, is very important to the majority of parents. However, not all learning happens in the nursery so it is important that people with the 'Parent' role in Famly can also contribute observations of how your child is learning and developing at home.

To create an observation of your child:

  • Head to your child's profile and click on 'Journey' tab

  • Click 'New Observation' (found in the top right)

  • A text box will appear- see the below screenshot for an example

  • Use the 'Upload' button to add photos and videos, or simply describe what your child is doing. If you get interrupted while you're creating the observation, a draft will save, which you can find again by clicking the (left) icon top right-hand corner.

  • When you're done, click 'Send for review' to share it with your child's setting.

Your child's practitioners will see your observation in Famly, where they can add links to the curriculum or next steps, if they wish.
