What is Early Essence?
It is an online tool to record all our Children’s Centres use to record children’s development and produce assessments that are shared with parents.
Parents are able to securely log in online to access their child’s individual learning journey. Details of how to do this will be given to parents at the point of registration.
Within the learning journey parents are able to see picture, observations and video clips which are uploaded by Children’s Centre staff. They are also able to upload picture, video’s and comments to support their child’s learning and development at home.
If you are a parent whose child attends one of our nurseries you are able to access Early Essence using the following link. You will need your own personal log in details to do this.
