The Journey tab

The Journey tab is where all assessments and observations made for a child will appear, in chronological order.


Making Observations

Observations are used to record development, interest, experiences, and achievement, and create an overall picture of the children in your care. To create an observation:

  • Log in to the app and go to the child's Journey tab, on their Profile

  • In the top right, click New

  • A drop-down menu will open, click Observation

  • You have space to write your observation and the option to upload a photo, video, or document.


Making Assessments

Assessment is ongoing through your observations of the children in your care, however, you can also record summative assessments in Famly, to create a general snapshot of a child's current development. To make an assessment:

  • Log in to the app and go to the child's Journey tab, on their Profile

  • In the top right, click New

  • A drop-down menu will open, click Assessment


Downloading a Child's Journey

When children leave your setting, parents can still access their child's profile and photos, as long as their role in the app has not been revoked. This means you do not need to download or print anything out. If you do choose to download a child's journey, you can find out how to at the link below:
