The eyLog daily diary feature enables nurseries to record key information about your child’s day at the nursery - what your child ate, when your child slept, bottles, nappy changes and toileting. This can be shared with you daily along with the child’s register, a summary of the day’s observations and any additional notes.
If you have registered your email address with the nursery and activated your parent account, then you will receive an email notification to your registered email address when a daily diary is published for your child. Clicking on the link provided in the email will take you to the web login screen for your child’s setting.
If you are using our eyLog Parent app on your mobile device and have turned on notifications, then you will also receive a notification via the application and can view this under the notifications section. Clicking on the notification will display the relevant daily diary.
From your Web Parent Portal
Once you have collected your child from the nursery the practitioners will publish their daily diary which will then be available to view from your Parent Portal.
Once you are logged in, click on the ‘Daily Diary’ tab at the top of the screen.
This will open the monthly view of the daily diary tracker. This tracker shows all the entries that the nursery has shared with you. To open the respective daily diary entry click on the ‘✓ ’.
The daily diary entry for the selected day will open as below with respective tabs for information about what your child ate, sleep times, bottle/milk details, nappies and toileting.
Adding Notes to a Daily Diary
The daily diary can be used as a two-way communication between parents and the nursery and as such can be started by you, as the parent.
From the daily diary tracker screen, click on the ‘+’ under the relevant day.
This will open the daily diary for that day showing only the ‘Notes from Parents’ section. If needed, you can change the date by clicking in the ‘Select Date’ box and selecting the relevant day from the calendar.
You can then write a message in the ‘Notes from Parents’ box.
Once you click ‘Save’ your note will be sent to your child’s key person who will be able to see it when they open your child’s daily diary from the nursery.
From the eyLog Parent App
In the parent app, tap on the menu icon in the top right-hand corner and select ‘Daily Diary’. Click on the date at the top of the screen to use the calendar to view previous daily diaries published by the nursery.
To add a note to a daily diary, open the relevant date and write a message in the ‘Notes from Parents’ section. Once you click ‘Submit’ your note will be sent to your child’s key person who will be able to see it when they open your child’s daily diary from the nursery.
