At Jigsaw we use the secure online learning journal system called EyLog. Your child’s keyperson documents her observations and assessments on this system, using pictures and videos to show the progress your child is making.
Parents have access to the learning journal at all times by downloading the EyLog app. Parents can contribute their own observations to the journal to record their child’s unique path during their early years at Jigsaw Nursery.
