Your child’s Learning journey
At Cuddles the term Learning Journey refers to a collection of different documents collected by your child’s Key Person and the other early years practitioners within your childs room. The photos and observations will provide a picture of your child’s development under the areas of learning identified in the EYFS. They consist of photos, art-work, mark-making etc and should be interspersed with observations made by your child’s Key Person including notes of relevant conversations or comments made by your child. Your Key Person will match any observations to the EYFS curriculum guidance. The aim is to build a unique picture of what your child knows, feels and can do as well as his / her particular interests and learning style. This picture can then be used to pinpoint learning priorities and plan relevant and motivating learning experiences. Keeping track of when statements are achieved will help to identify evidence needs to be targeted in an observation.
Learning Book is a complete digital solution for learning journeys where Cuddles can record, analyse and share information on your child’s progress.
Paper learning journeys are outdated, impractical and often unavailable to parents, which is why My Learning Book have developed a smarter, safer and more accessible way of capturing and presenting your child’s Early Years progress. Learning Book brings learning journeys to the digital age, providing parents with an electronic version of their child’s learning journey which they can access and engage with at any time. Increased visibility means parents can support the skills their son or daughter is learning at nursery by using the same teaching styles and processes at home when planning fun and educational activities.
Where do I find Learning book?
Please search for ‘My Learning book parent portal’ in google. Just click on the link and it will take you to the page to log in.
I can’t remember my password?
Please come in and speak to the Team Leader of your room who will be happy to reset your pass word
I’m logged out? Why can’t I change my password to something I know or regularly use?
My Learning book generates the passwords so that your child’s account is always safe and cannot be accessed by anyone but you. For security reasons if the incorrect password is entered three times the system will disable the login and the Team Leader of your room will need to re-enable it. If you have forgotten your password you will need to come in and speak to the Team Leader of your childs room; who will reset your password.
Can I leave a comment on the pictures or writing that my childs Key Person has put in my child’s learning book?
Parents can leave a ‘keepsake comment’ next to each observation by clicking the “Add your keepsake comment” link. This is restricted to 125 characters so it fits into the margin; you can see who made the comment and when they made it as well as editing or deleting it by hovering over the comment.
Can I add my own photos?
Yes you can!
The At Home feature allows parents to upload photos and associated comments from home. To upload At Home photos, click the “At Home” icon from the top menu. This will load the At Home page from where you can see all the pictures and text you have uploaded. To add a picture click the “Add Photo” icon where you will be prompted to choose the photo from your PC or phone.

How do i know when staff add more photos etc to my child's learning book?
As you know the care we offer at Cuddles is Outstanding and this is based on the time and attention our staff dedicate to the children in our care. Your child’s key person and the rest of the staff within your child’s room work hard to record and document all of the exciting things that take place within our rooms on a daily basis. Where possible these will be uploaded ASAP but when this is not possible we will ensure updated information (photos, observations etc) are added at the end of every month. As a guide line we would suggest that you visit your child’s Learning Book online at the beginning of the month to see all of the fun your child had in the previous month.
