Early Years Online Learning Journal

For Pre-Schools, Nurseries, Childminders and all other EYFS Professionals


Add, edit and manage both observations and assessments easily alongside the EYFS government guidelines. Complete all observations on any device, anywhere at any time with the ability to add various images, videos and collateral to support the evaluation.


Develop powerful and informative reports and progress tracking. View each and every report in multiple formats to help you plan ahead and keep track of all progress throughout your little one's Early Years development.


Share each report seamlessly with parents and guardians, encouraging feedback and further personal observations. We pride ourselves in positive communication between all parties, to successfully follow every child through their Early Years development.

We have various different tools to record and manage our observations.

Octopus is by far the easiest to use and generates really effective Learning Journals for both practitioner and parent. The reports look great too!
