Keeping the focus on each child

Educa is a comprehensive platform, developed in New Zealand, that puts the child  at the heart of everything you do.  We create learning visibility through sharing and we make educators more efficient, online.

  • Easy to share — documentation, observations, ideas
  • Easy to see – child activities, what others are doing, best practice
  • Easy to link — to curriculum, plans, documents
  • Shortcuts — start with prior documents, templates
  • Quick access – update on the go, everything at your fingertips
  • One-click reports – on children, centre activity

Adapt all aspects of Educa to fit your process – documents, work-flow, approvals, and more.

Observations Linked To Learning

At the heart of Educa are the “stories” that can be linked to any curriculum goals or plan, shared with parents, printed and saved as evidence of learning.

Documentation For Compliance

Educa has form builders and templates that can be tailored to meet most compliance requirements — observations, assessments, reviews, appraisals.

Professional Growth

Each educator has a private portfolio to record professional development and reflections, linked to standards. Educa also has mentoring settings to help new teachers.


Individual and group plans, lesson plans and reviews are all available in Educa, for use by individual educators or to work on in teams.

Family Collaboration

Educa creates a private community around each child. Observations linked to learning are starting points for meaningful conversations and feedback.
