ELog & Observations

Ministars has recently introduced  a  new  integrated web system that allows us to easily capture observations and manage the learning and development journeys of children in our care.

EyLog (for early years Log), allows staff to capture a photo, a video clip or a voice recording as well as written notes using a tablet computer and to assign this to one or more children. These observations from staff members are then uploaded to a secure web-based learning journey to which you as a parent also have access to.

We believe that using online learning journeys will allow both a rich body of evidence to support our partnership with parents and to help us plan for individual children’s development, and of course a wonderful keepsake for you to share with your child.

All data is held in encrypted form and is accessed subject to a secure login and password.  The only people who can access a child’s learning journey are the relevant nursery staff (manager, room leaders, key persons) and the child’s parents.

When applying for a place at Ministars, we will provide you with all the necessary information regarding our eylog observation system and procedures. We are happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

The eyLog website (https://eylog.co.uk) has more information as well as a list of FAQs.  Please have a look to find out more about this exciting development.
